PLAINVILLE - Joseph Patrick Dynan of Plainville, MA, age 75, died peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family after a two-year battle with myelofibrosis, a blood cancer. Born on May 16, 1942, in Peabody, MA, Joe was the second of eight children born to the late Albert and late Catherine (Deasy) Dynan. Joe received his Bachelors of Science in Political Science from Suffolk University, Boston, MA, in 1966. In 1976, he moved his family to Plainville, MA where he was actively involved in his children’s lives by coaching sports and assisting with other activities. He was employed by a few companies as a Safety/OSHA Compliance Manager to include Monet Jewelry and Tyco.
Joe is survived by his wife, Eileen (Feilteau) Dynan, Plainville MA, and his five children, Christine Dynan and August of Plainsboro, NJ, Mark Dynan, his wife Deb, and sons Joey, Michael and David of Wilmington, MA, Melissa Dynan of Miami, FL, Cindy Dynan and son Patrick of Plainville, MA, and Jeffrey Dynan, his wife Holly and son Hunter of Loxahatchee, FL. He is also survived by his seven siblings Frank Dynan, John Dynan and wife Donna, Mary Flynn and husband Kevin, Catherine Dynan, Theresa Dynan, Ann Martin and husband Don, and Suzanne Romaine (and late husband Richard Romaine). Preceded in death by his father-in-law Walter and mother-in-law Helen Feilteau, he is also survived by sisters-in-law Yvonne Gagnon, Helena Gautreau, and Charlene Feilteau. Finally, he leaves countless others to include brothers-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends from near and afar including Ireland, and dear friends Paul and Trish Gallerani.
Also known as “Big Joe”, he was a jokester; his infectious sense of humor and pranks will be a source of smiles and memories for all. His humor was balanced with humility and kindness of heart.
The last two years of his life were spent forging everlasting memories with his family, precious moments made possible by the many who assisted with treatment, particularly the amazing staff at Dana-Farber and the generosity of those who donated blood.
Arrangements will be held privately with services entrusted to Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home, 15 Grove Street, North Attleboro.
In lieu of flowers respects can be made by a cash donation to Xavierian Brothers High School or by donating a pint of blood to Dana-Faber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center.
