John T. Faley, age 67, of Easton, entered into eternal life on Aug. 11, 2022.
John was born in the Bronx to John and Eileen Murphy Faley and his family moved to Bedford, N.Y and Pound Ridge, N.Y. For many years, he lived in New York City, where his son was born and then in 2001, moved to Easton with Susan and John, “I love this town!”
John worked for many years with his family at the Faley Insurance Agency in Yonkers, N.Y and currently was employed by John M. Glover Agency in Norwalk and had many clients over 30 years.
John was so very proud of his son, John V. “You are the best thing that ever happened to me.” He loved watching John grow and excel in his sports, especially soccer and baseball and almost never missed a game to cheer him on.
In John’s younger days, he was a “Dead Head” and still enjoyed listening to their music and sharing that love with John V. He loved fishing, cooking, the Yankees, telling stories, and going to the beach.
John’s memory will be lovingly remembered by Susan Vegessi Faley, of Easton; his son, John Vegessi Faley, of Easton and Portsmouth, N.H; his 11-year-old Golden Retriever, Hero, of Easton; brothers, Kevin G. Faley (Beth), of Huntington, NY and Michael Faley (Kathy), of Mahopac, NY; sisters, Maryanne Neary, John Ogden, of Trumbull and Eileen Carroll, of Easton; father-in-law, Attilro Vegessi, of New Smyrna Beach, FL; brothers-in-law, Captain Michael Vegessi (Kathy) and Mark Vegessi (Leslie), of New Smyrna Beach, FL; and numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his grandparents, John and Mary Faley and Timothy and Molly Murphy; mother-in-law, Anne C. Vegessi, of New Smyrna Beach, FL; brothers-in-law, Russel Neary and Jim Carroll, of Easton; and a niece, Serena Vegessi Schick, of Montauk, NY.
