Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at 


John leaves behind his “Beautiful Bride” Elaine Faulk. His cherished children, Toni Hamilton, John P Kearney Jr., Erin Lee Kearney, Shane Kearney, Travis John Kearney, Brian Joseph Kearney, Heather Nicole Faulk and Dawn Gills. He is lovingly remembered by his brother Barry Hodgdon Jr, his wife Laura and their son, Sawyer. John also leaves behind his four-legged best friend Java, and a host of many more extended family and friends.


John was characterized by his kindheartedness and handy nature. He was a jack of all trades, our Renaissance man. He took immense fulfillment in all his hard work. His humorous ways and storytelling will live on through his children.


John enjoyed helping others without question or hesitation. He received many pleasures from life, whether it was nature while hiking on trails or driving on country roads. John loved the simple things, such as sunrises, sunsets, or picking up fresh fruits and vegetables from the local farms (sometimes not so local) he loved to get lost driving. He always looked forward to attending the Annual Bloomsburg Fair in PA. John was a City Boy but a Country Man at Heart.


Those who have been able to encounter John, know that he was a gentle guy with a heart of gold. His memory will forever be a treasure held in the hearts of all fortunate to cross his path. There are not enough words to express the love that we have for John and how deeply he will be missed.


For those desiring, the family would kindly appreciate memorial donations to Eleventh Hour Rescue | P.O. Box 218, Rockaway, NJ 07866.
