Obituary of John J. Daly

Troy, NY John Joseph Daly, Eighty-Eight years young, passed away peacefully at home with his loving family on July 3, 2020 after a short illness. He was the son of Mary F. Kerwick Daly, and Christopher Daly. John is survived by his devoted wife of 59 years, Maryann Hurlburt Daly, loving father of Christopher (Marlene Hyer) Daly of California, Heather Daly, Jennifer (Craig) Davids of Schodack, and Stephanie (Daniel) Cahill of Troy. John was the proud adoring Papa of Haley Milos (fiancée Frank Schroeder), Isabel Cahill, Hamilton Davids, Lilly Cahill, and Daniel Cahill Jr. John is also survived by his brother Robert (Louise) Daly and his deceased sisters Anna Canfield, Frances Aubin, and his brother Christopher Daly.

John was a self-employed sign painter for over 52 years and Eucharistic minister with Samaritan Hospital for 23 years. He loved to travel with Maryann and his family. His favorite destinations were Alaska, Ireland, Cancun, Florida, Savannah Georgia, but there were too many others to list. He enjoyed the sunshine on his face, elephants, drawing, painting, and other art related hobbies, fishing, cooking, eating, playing cards, and to study world history and religion. His most precious love was being with his family. John was very devoted husband, father, and grandfather. His compassion towards others, and most importantly his family, was beyond compare. He always gave far more than received, and when he loved, he never expected more love in return. John never said good-bye. John would always end his visits with until we meet again. It is an understatement that we will be lost without him, but until we meet again, “I love you all with all my heart, do what you have to do be happy in life. Go and be well my family”.
