|John Joseph Shaughnessy, RIP|
In mourning the passing of a friend of any age, we always proclaim that he was too young to die. For Johnny, in his early 50s, it can be truly said that his mark on this earth was measured many times over by the countless friends that he made and lives that he touched. Affectionately known as 'Shocks', Johnny immigrated to Boston in the 1980's and was a well known member of the Irish Community in Dorchester. A gentle and generous soul, Johnny will now shares his wit and charm with a new group of friends.
