Jeremiah “Jerry” Coughlan of Weymouth, MA died peacefully on May 31st at the age of 84. 


Jerry is survived by his children, Anne Marie Coughlan Malfi and her husband Thomas of Newtown, PA, Brian Coughlan of Braintree, MA, Kathleen DiChiara and her husband Stephen of Lincoln, RI and Michael Coughlan and his wife Lisa of Braintree, MA; his sister Mary Prout; and nine wonderful grandchildren.  He is preceded in death by his wife, Evelyn; his parents Nora and Michael; his brothers, Michael, Richard (twin) and Pat Joe; and his daughter-in-law, Lauren.


Jerry was born on February 19,1940 in Skibbereen, County Cork, Ireland to Nora and Michael Coughlan. He served a five-year apprenticeship at Skibbereen Motor Works as an Auto Mechanic from 1955 to 1960 and then immigrated to the United States in 1960. He worked in the trade within the private sector for nine years before moving on to work at the City of Boston as an auto mechanic. After working his way up the ‘chain of command’, he went on to serve as the Superintendent of Auto Fleet Maintenance until his retirement in 2001. Shortly after, he took on part-time work for Driscoll Property Management, where he stayed for twelve years, before he retired (again). 


In 1964, Jerry married his wife Evelyn (“Evie”). They enjoyed watching their four children grow up and play sports, including baseball, softball and basketball. Jerry enjoyed sports himself and played Gaelic football for the Cork Senior Club of Boston and New York. He pitched “fast-pitch” softball in Boston Common and served as the baseball coach for Cedar Grove Little League and Babe Ruth in Dorchester, MA. He also coached youth basketball for St. Gregory’s in Dorchester.
