John J. Kirwin, Jr.

            John J. Kirwin, Jr., 76, of Harwich, MA, passed away April 5, 2014, with his loving wife, Barbara, by his side, at Cape Cod Hospital after several years of declining health. He was loved and admired by all who knew him for his gentle nature, sense of humor, and positive outlook on life.

            Born in Boston to the late Frances (Russell) Kirwin and John J. Kirwin, Sr., John was the youngest of four children. He was raised in Milton, MA, and graduated from Newman Preparatory School and The School of Practical Art in Boston. He also attended Boston College. John was a surveyor for South Shore Engineering, Cohasset, MA.

            In 1967, John married his wife, Barbara (Scherer) Kirwin, of Zionsville, PA. They moved to Cape Cod in 1970. He worked as a graphic designer in the Advertising Department at Mid-Cape Home Centers.

            John was a talented artist in oil and acrylics. He was an avid reader, preferring history, science, and favorite authors. He enjoyed his computer, photography, photo restoration, airplanes and air shows, watching movies, tennis, the Red Sox, and the New England Patriots.

            He is survived by his wife; sister Muriel Reis of Foxboro, MA; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Mary and John Burianek of Macungie, PA and Diane and Dennis Reinhart of Emmaus, PA; nieces, nephews and cousins. He is predeceased by sisters, Jacqueline Curley and Jeanette Garabedian; and nephews Andrew Curley, Jay Curley and George Garbedian.

            A celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, November 8 at Palm Schwenkfelder Church, 833 Gravel Pike, Palm, with Rev. Nicholas L. Pence officiating. Burial follows in Palm Schwenkfelder Cemetery.

            In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in John's name to the Palm Schwenkfelder Church.
