Remembering Joe Dolan, friend of Haley House
BG-2000703729-Dolan_Joseph.1_20130321Joe Dolan, a long-time friend of Haley House, passed away recently. Joe wandered into Haley House almost 50 years ago, on an exploratory mission to ‘find out about poverty’ in Boston for his Sodality group. Jesus kept referring to the poor and Joe felt he had no knowledge of poverty. A typical response of this bright, impeccably honest businessman, proud Naval Academy graduate who became “almost” a pacifist."Dad was hooked," said Joe's son, Tom, in a eulogy at St. Gregory's Church. "He became an active member of the Haley House community and for over 30 years he helped Haley House feed and bring comfort to those who needed it. He helped cook and serve the meals, clean the kitchen, and shared time and conversation with men who had lost everything. Dad had a spiritual side, and a social conscience, and Haley House provided him with a way of fulfilling his desire to offer selfless, compassionate service to others.”
