    Jock and I grew up in the same neighborhood, at one time we drove trucks for the same company. Jock was always smiling patting you on the back with his hand out to shake your hand. He’d always say to me “Jase, how the hell are ya?” Just terrible that this disease has claimed another victim well before their time. To the Conroy family our prayers and condolences. He certainly will be missed by all that knew him. Brian and Barbara Jason Chelmsford Ma

    SO very sorry for your loss, Jean and family. Jock was such a jovial soul and a supporter to all whom he met, what a rare quality! He was such an unusual advocate for those who needed his help…hope you can all realize what he meant to those of us he touched. He visited Mom several times and brought great light into her life toward the end! She loved his “joi de vivre”, spelling could be off, but hope you understand! He was “a FORCE”, for sure! I know he will be greatly missed, but know his time on this earth was well-spent. Please know he was SO well-thought-of and very well appreciated! Great Memories of a life Well-Lived!
