John Joseph Earley passed away unexpectedly after a courageous battle with cardiac issues on July 29, 2021 in Sanford, NC. John or Jake was the eighth child of Edward Jr. and Iona (Egan) Earley who predeceased him. He is survived by his loving wife Sueann and her children Lavone and Matthew. Also surviving are his siblings, Mary McCarthy, Sister Katherine Earley CSJ, Ted (Karen) Earley, Becky Earley, Theresa (Tom) Tiffany, Judy Kelleher and many loving nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister, Margaret Smith and brothers-in-law Jonathan Smith, John McCarthy and James Kelleher. Also remembering "JJ" are a host of true "Southside" boys and girls, too numerous to name (you know who you are) who played hard and snow sleighed on the back hill and ate Mrs. Earley's chocolate cake. These friendships continued to this day. Services in Sanford, NC will be private and a Memorial mass will be celebrated in October 2021. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to may consider a memorial contribution, in memory of John to the Sisters of Saint Joseph, Gurry Trust Fund, 385 Watervliet Shaker Road, Latham, NY 12110.
