John L. O’Neill, 88, of Tyngsboro, former longtime resident of the Pawtucketville section of Lowell, died peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Sunday, April 5, 2015 at Northwood Rehabilitation & Health Care Center in Lowell. He was the beloved husband of the late Constance F. “Connie” O’Neill who died May 26, 2014.

John met his wife, Connie Bello, in Pawtucketville when they were both kids. The two married on September 8, 1946 and were able to spend 67 wonderful years together. They enjoyed frequenting their favorite restaurants and taking trips with the Lowell Senior Citizens. 

Before retiring in 1985, John worked at the Lowell Gas Company as a meter reader where he played an integral role in starting their union.

Among his many hobbies, John was an avid coin collector; he also loved putting around his workshop building hope chests, and custom made necklaces, among other things. After Connie, John's second love was spending time with his family.
