John O’Sullivan Obituary, Death – In view of the fact that we were John’s friends and carers, we are sorry to have to be the ones to break the news to you that he has passed away; but, we believe that we have no choice but to perform this commitment since we consider ourselves to be in a position where we have no other option. After a brief struggle with illness previous to her admittance to the hospital, Borne lost her fight against death on May 20 at the University Hospital in Galway. Borne had been ill for a short time before being admitted to the hospital.
At the time of his passing, he was encompassed by the loved ones he had in his life, including the cherished members of his family as well as friends from a wide variety of vocations and walks of life. Borne overcame his illness largely as a result of his extraordinary bravery and unyielding will. Everyone in his family had already departed before he arrived, including his mother Mary, his father Michael, and his two elder brothers, Dermot and Jimmy. He was the only member of his family. He was the only member of his family to have made it through the tragedy unscathed.
His brothers Mickey, Jerry, and Martin, as well as his sisters Margaret, Mary, Eithne, Carmel, and Collette, as well as his brothers-in-law and sister-in-law Tessie, nephews and nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces, the extended O’Sullivan family, neighbors, and many great friends, especially Ray Ryan (Skinny), will mourn his passing deeply and will miss him greatly. He will be greatly missed by all of them. Everyone there will miss him very much after he is gone. After he has left, he will be much missed by everyone who was there. Everyone who was there will feel a great loss once he has gone because he was such a valuable presence.
