Condolences to the Family of Vincent L. Hennessy Jr.


I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your father, partner, friend. Dr Hennessey was an extremely conscientious, hardworking physician and an integral part of South Shore Hospital. Often his patients would stay in our critical care area, in keeping with the close monitoring required after thoracic surgery. He cared deeply for his patients, and frequently checked on them during the day both personally and by phone. His dry humor as well as his concern for and appreciation of our team made him an unofficial member of our unit's staff. We also had the great pleasure of hearing him play at some hospital functions. Rest in peace, Vinnie. We'll keep you in our hearts.

Our sincerest sympathies to the Hennessy family. All the years we had been neighbors, together we enjoyed watching our children grow into adults. To add a funny note, Dan and I remember the morning you calmly advised us over the phone how to remove an earring from our then 2 year olds nose. We were so thankful to have you in our community. Your kind and compassionate manner made you a standout physician who will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate to know you. Dan and Rosemarie Lauria

Dear Hennessy family and Marilyn, We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Vinnie. I knew him through Bill Giarrusso (former boss) when they and others had their "bicycle riding group". In more recent years Vinnie and Marilyn enjoyed the music of Fred and friends and we enjoyed it when Vinnie sat in on sax ! Our sincere sympathy to you and may he rest in peace.

Friends, Fred Cappellini & Michelle DeLorey Cappellini
