He was a man of steadfast conviction, who firmly believed in the proper way to live one’s life.
It is with great sadness that the family of John (Jack) Michael Friel announces his passing on Monday, March 11th, 2019. Jack can be characterized in many ways. He was a father who reveled in his role as the protector of a strong family that focused on children, whether it was his children or grandchildren. He was a teacher of discipline and ethics. He was an adventurer who understood there is an amazing world out there, and wanted to share it. And he was a very religious man who put an enormous amount of trust in God to take care of the big stuff.
Relatives and friends are invited to share in John’s Life Celebration on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 beginning at 10:00AM followed by his Funeral Mass at 11:00AM at Nativity of Our Lord Church 625 W. Street Rd. Warminster, PA 18974. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
