Obituary for Michael John Feeney

October 13, 2020
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Michael John, of Philadelphia, passed away on October 13th at the age of 78. He was the beloved husband of Mary "Myra" (nee Connell); devoted father of Michael (Silvia), Daniel (Theresa), Shawn (Jennifer), Martin (Christine), and Mary; loving grandfather of Ashlynne (Mike), Brianna (Derek), Emmaleigh, Aleks, Katie, Farrell, Jessica, Kayla, Colin, Elizabeth, Ariana, Tommy, and Isabella; loving great grandfather of Michael, Danny, Anna, and William; and cherished brother of the late Catherine "Honey", Monica "Connie", Patrick "Buddy", and Peter.

Michael was a steadfast member of AA, who devoted much time and energy to help those who struggled with addiction. He was just as devoted to and passionate about his family, there for them any time, and always with generosity and love. Michael proudly served his country as a Marine in the United States Marine Corps. He enjoyed an intense game of pinochle, finishing his crosswords in pen only and baking his famous soda breads for his many avid food fans. You could also find - or better yet hear him - in front of the TV for the Eagles games – and during all these activities he had his wife right by his side. He had a deep love and newfound patience for his grandchildren, and leaves behind a legacy of strength, humility and love of service. One of the great ones truly earned his spot – stay cozy, dad.

Givnish Funeral Home, 10975 Academy Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19154, and again on Tuesday, October 20th, from 9:15 – 10 AM, at Christ the King Church, 3252 Chesterfield Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19114.
