John Connelly Sr. Obituary
John Alfred Connelly Sr., 82 years old, passed away on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012 in Anchorage, Alaska.

He was born March 27, 1930 in Breckenridge to Guy and Ruth Connelly. He served in the Air Force and was stationed in South Africa. After leaving the military he lived throughout Texas. He had numerous professions throughout his life from installing alarm systems in private homes to owning his own bars in the Houston area.

In 2000 Fairbanks, Alaska became his second home. He loved the cold and loved fishing, favoring ice fishing. He was a very kind, generous man who loved spending time with his family and friends and was always the life of the party. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his three children, Dee Connelly (Merritt Island, Fla.) Debbie Stanley (Denison, Texas) and John A Connelly Jr.(Howe, Texas); 10 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild and a large network of friends from Texas to Alaska who were very dear to him. He is preceded in death by his parents Guy and Ruth Connelly, brother Guy Connelly Jr. and sister Dorthea Connelly Hurst.

Per John's wishes no service well be held and his ashes will be spread with family at a later date.
