John J. Hurley, age 70

John J. Hurley, an avid skier, animal lover, and fixture at Killington for the last 40 years, passed away peacefully on Jan. 18. He was 70.
John was born on Dec. 31, 1946, in New York City to the late Joseph and Margaret Hurley of Limerick, Ireland.
Upon graduation from Saint Helena’s High School in the Bronx, N.Y., John Hurley was graciously “invited” by the U.S. government to participate in the Vietnam war, an invitation which he accepted. Hurley’s service was greatly appreciated and his training led him to a long career in telecommunications.
One of Hurley’s lifelong dreams was to build a home in Vermont, a dream which he was able to accomplish with his beloved partner of 22 years, Gay Sullivan, who was at his side as he left to begin his new journey.
John Hurley will be missed by all and is survived by his sisters Shelia Keegan, Eileen King, and Mary Fitzgerald as well as nieces and nephews of two generations. Rest in peace,  John Hurley.
