by beth on January 9, 2019

Cunneen, John “Jack” Age 86, of Southborough, MA, and more recently Sarasota, FL, passed away quietly on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019. He was at home with his family by his side.

Born November 26, 1932 to Patrick and Kathleen Cunneen of Arlington, MA. Jack was an entrepreneur with a keen intellect, a craftsman and master of all trades. After serving in the army, he used the GI bill to complete a degree in mechanical engineering at Northeastern University.

In 1978, Jack bought a small hydraulic firm called Fluid Power Products. The company and its employees were Jack’s life, working every day until just recently.

Jack was preceded in death by his parents, his first wife of 24 years Marion Cobb Cunneen, his sister Mildred O’Connell and his brother Kevin Cunneen. Jack is survived by his second wife of 27 years Mary Jayne Roy-Cunneen, his sisters Pat Wright and Mary Chase and his adult children Michele and Bruce. 

His favorite place was the family camp in Maine where he would use a lifetime of accumulated skills to repair all manner of things a 90 year old camp would require. In accordance with Jacks wishes, there will be no service. A private celebration of life will be held at the family camp in Maine.

Donations in Jack’s honor can be made to: Travis Mills Foundation www.Travismillsfoundation.org They provide free of charge family camp vacations for veterans. Their facilities are close to the family camp in Maine. Mote Marine Labs www.mote.org They provide services to marine mammals. Jack enjoyed snorkeling with the manatees and all things cruising in boats.
