Obituary for Joseph Francis Connolly

Joseph Francis Connolly, 85, of Greenville, SC, passed on to his heavenly home Tuesday, August 18, 2020. Born July 21, 1935, in South Boston, Joe was the son of the late Joseph J. and Barbara Mullen Connolly.

Providence Presbyterian will hold a service of Witness to the Resurrection in celebration of the life of Joe Connolly 10:00 AM Friday, August 28, 2020, 4000 SC-153, Greenville, SC 29611.

Jean and Jackie,
My heart hurts knowing that your awesome husband and dad isn’t here on earth with us anymore, being the Joe that I have known for more than 40 years! He made an impression on everyone he came in contact with and his smile will live on forever! You are the lovely people you are because of him. Jeff will have company now and that makes me smile. We will all see him again! Love and hugs to you all!
