FORAN, James F. (74), of Hyde Park, loving uncle of nephews and nieces, John, Karen, Jim, Janet, and Joseph, and brother-in-law to Carol Foran, died on Monday, May 12th. He was born on May 30, 1930, a son of the late James Foran and Agnes (Coughlin) of Boston. He was predeceased by his beloved brother, John "Jacko" Foran and sister, Agnes Foran. Jim retired early from his job as a U.S. Postal Service clerk to care for his dying sister. A beloved uncle, he valued family first and foremost. A long-time Hyde Park resident and former caddy, he enjoyed golf, politics, investing, and travel (Russia, Germany, Acapulco, Canada, and U.S.).
