Michael Joseph Kelleher Jr., 23

SOUTHBOROUGH – Michael Joseph Kelleher Jr, 23, of Southborough, died on  Sunday, April 16, 2017. Born in Framingham, he was the son of Lori A. and Michael J. Kelleher. 

He lived in Natick as a young child and it was there where he developed both his great skill in and passion for sports.  He completed the rest of his schooling in the northeast Pennsylvania area.  He was a star basketball player, as well as a well-liked and respected student, who made many long-lasting friendships.

He attended Kutztown University for two years before moving back to Massachusetts.  He was currently working as a server, where he brought smiles and laughs to all of his customers and co-workers.

He had many passions and interests, including basketball, baseball, snorkeling, music, video games, spending time with friends, bowling, and cheering on Boston teams like his beloved Celtics.  He also loved animals, especially his two dogs Parker and Jax.

He was kind, friendly, smart, handsome, and quick witted.  He was always willing to help anyone in need.  We will miss his stories, his booming laugh, and his sensitive soul.

In his honor, we cheer for the Celtics as they compete in the Playoffs. We know he is rooting for his favorite team to bring home another Championship. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his siblings Jessalyn Kelleher and Shaye and Hannah Mahoney; his grandmothers Evelyn Bracken and Donna Kelleher; also his loving aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by his beloved grandfather Walter Kelleher; great-grandfather Walter Hewitt, and uncle Michael Bracken.

Calling hours will be held from 1-3 pm on Sunday, April 23 at Morris Funeral Home, 40 Main Street,  Rte 30, Southborough. Funeral service will  be private.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent in  Michael’s memory to Sweet Paws Rescue – P.O. Box 752,  Essex, MA 01929
