Obituary for John E. Kealy

John E. Kealy, born on August 25, 1950 in Ashland passed away peacefully on Friday morning, September 25, 2020 at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
He was the beloved son of the late Florence (Toland) Kealy and the late James M. Kealy, Jr.

John was a lifelong resident of Mount Carmel. He was a 1968 graduate of Our Lady of Lourdes Regional High School and was also a 1970 graduate of the McCann School of Business.

He retired from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Revenue in 2010 after almost 20 years of service. Prior to this position, John worked at the Union National Bank in Mount Carmel for 20 years, where he enjoyed interacting with customers. John earned the respect of his colleagues in both positions through his work ethic, reliability, and collegiality.

John was a member of the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and a Life Member of Anthracite Steam Fire Company.

The youngest of the Kealy clan of Market Street, John embraced his destiny to be the funniest. Soft-spoken and reserved, his wit and humor were subtle and swift. If you made John laugh, you could rest assured in that moment you had indeed been clever. Always a gentleman, John embodied kindness, loyalty, and trustworthiness. He was a loving son to his parents and provided daily support and companionship to Mom. John was very proud of learning about and celebrating his Irish heritage—and would quickly defend it when deemed necessary. He enjoyed listening to Irish music and was an ardent fan of Notre Dame football. John was also a long-suffering Phillies and Eagles fan. John’s quiet and calming presence will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his brother, James L. Kealy of Mount Carmel; sisters, Anne Pizzoli (David) of Beaverdale, Florence Ecker (Joseph) of Mount Carmel, and Mary Bach (Francis) of Mount Carmel; as well as eight nieces and nephews and twelve great nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 11:00 am in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church with the Rev. Francis J. Karwacki, Pastor as the celebrant. Interment will follow in All Saints Cemetery, Bear Gap. A visitation will be held on Friday morning from 9:00 am until 10:45 am in the Joseph J. Stutz, Inc. Funeral Home, 40 South Market Street, Mount Carmel, Joseph J. Stutz, III Supervisor. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy can be made to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 47 South Market Street, Mount Carmel, PA 17851.
