Obituary: John J. Ward, 60

John J. Ward, 60, of Southborough passed away on Monday, January 25, 2021 at his home.

Born in Cambridge, he was the son of the late Edna (Jewers) and Robert Ward.

John was a 1978 graduate of Algonquin Regional High School in Northborough. For many years he worked for World Realty in Newton as a Site Manager. John was a hard worker and relaxed by sitting by his fire pit enjoying a few beers with his friends while letting out his infamous words “oh boy”.

He is survived by his loving daughters, Christy Christo and her husband Christopher of Marlborough; Cayla Ward of Westborough; his siblings, Diane Cahill of FL; Robert Ward and his wife Mary, of NM; Mari Ann Roy and her husband John of Charlton; David Ward of Southborough; his former spouse, Claire Ward of Westborough; cherished grandchildren, Savannah, Jackson, Mason, and Sophia; a special niece, Sarah Ward and many other nieces and nephews. 

A private funeral service will be held at Morris Funeral Home, 40 Main Street, Southborough on Friday, February 12, at 1 pm, where we will be following the pandemic rules set forth by the Governor.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be sent to the American Lung Association, 1661 Turnpike Road, Framingham, MA 0101. or National Alliance of Mental Illness Box 49104 Baltimore, MD 21297.
