John "Jack" Finnell

November 19, 1927 ~ September 20, 2022 (age 94)


John “Jack” Finnell, 94, formerly of Milford, beloved husband of the late Maria “Mary” Finnell, passed away peacefully on September 20, 2022. Born on November 19, 1927 in Bridgeport, he was the son of the late John Finnell and Helen Finnell Barnes.  

Jack graduated from Warren Harding High School in Bridgeport. Jack was a veteran of the US Army serving during the Korean War. He was self-employed through the years, including owning Quality Vending in Milford, until its sale in 1989. He was an avid golfer and a member of multiple country clubs in his lifetime. He enjoyed playing in golf tournaments and playing cards. He was well respected by his many friends and always had great concern for others. He wanted to make sure that people were taken care of and he could often be heard asking, “Are you okay? Can I get you anything?’ Above all else, Jack loved his family and he will be missed by many.
