AGE: 84 • West Grove, PA

Jensen Beach, FL — John Joseph Sweeney, 84, of West Grove, PA, died Friday, April 14, 2017, at Treasure Coast Hospice in Stuart FL. after an extended illness.

He leaves his wife of 57 years, Frances (Lanahan) Sweeney; his sons Kevin and Michael Sweeney, daughter Karen Berdoulay and husband Alan Berdoulay; five grandchildren; two great grandchildren; and many close friends.

Born and raised in Parkside, PA, Jack was the son of John J. Sweeney and Bertha (Wilkinson) Sweeney.

Jack graduated from Ridley Park High School in 1950, where he enjoyed playing baseball, and was known for his artistic talents.

He met his wife, Frances, in Wildwood, NJ, and they were married in 1959 at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Chester, PA. They raised their family in the early years in Wilmington, DE, and then relocated to Landenberg, PA.

After retiring in 1996, after 30 years of service with Diamond State Telephone Company, Jack and Fran enjoyed wintering at their residence on Hutchinson Island, FL.

Jack had a passion for following Philadelphia professional sports, and for dancing, reading, traveling, and spending time with many lifelong and newfound friends.

A funeral service was held April 20 at The Church of The Holy Redeemer in Palm City, FL, and the family will host a celebration of his life in PA at a later date.
