Jeffrey Paul Kiernan, son of Arthur and Patricia, passed away April 13th 2019, surrounded by loving friends and family at his home in Winchester.
Born January 24th, 1962 in Lake Forest, Il, Jeff lived an extraordinarily rich, full and varied life which was generously shared with those around him.
Jeff grew up in Boston before going out west to attend the University Of San Diego where he earned a degree in psychology. Jeff soon followed his father at Gillette, which took him to and Atlanta and Washington DC.
He returned to Boston, where he met the love of his life, Julia. Together they moved to Charlestown, where Jeff attained his MBA from Suffolk University. This led to a fruitful 23 year career with Avery Products Corporation.
Always kind, always thoughtful, Jeff also had tremendous good humor which matched well with his adventurous spirit. His boundless energy and curiosity swept up all those around him, enriching their lives in the process.
He had impeccable taste and deep passions -whether it was the perfect temperature for a Riesling, a rare Radiohead track, or how to hit a flop shot from a bare lie, Jeff was a gracious expert and shared his loves generously.
Above all else, Jeff was a loyal and loving husband, father, brother, and friend. All those who knew him considered him a close companion and all will miss him dearly. His comrades at Salem Country Club too, will very much feel his loss.
Jeff is predeceased by his father, mother and brother Arthur. Jeff is survived by his wife Julia, his children, Paulina and Julian, siblings, Douglas and Leslie and brother-in-law Steven and sister-in-law Veronica, nephews Blane, Jacob, Curtis, Jack, Finbar, Shane and Will, nieces Kiernan and Bridgett. And of course, his loyal great dane, Nala.
Memorial Services will be held at Lane Funeral Home, located at 760 Main Street, Winchester, MA, on Friday, April 19th between the hours of 4 and 7 pm.
