Waldron Remembered For Love Of Brockton
BROCKTON--John A. Waldron, 54, a lifelong Brockton resident, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, March 10 at the Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton.
Waldron, the husband of Brockton 21st Century Corp. Executive Director Mary Waldron, who is fighting breast cancer, last week went into the hospital for surgery after a fall.
He went into the hospital this weekend suffering from trouble breathing and other complications. He unexpectedly died Saturday.
Waldron was a 1975 graduate of Brockton High School, and he remained devoted to his alma mater throughout his life. He served with the Brockton Boxer Alumni Group raising funds for the football team, and volunteered innumerable hours for the Brockton High School Alumni Association.
Waldron served as Retirement Counselor for the Massachusetts State Retirement Board for more than twelve years. John cherished his service as Legislative Aide to Representative Thomas Kennedy in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
It was at the State House where John met the love of his life, Mary, whom he would marry.
John was the proud father of daughter, Casey Angela, who graduates from Brockton High in 2012, following in the tradition of her father.
He loved sunsets down the Cape, golfing with high school and college friends, reminiscing about Brockton – never forgetting anything or anyone.
He was a member of the Polish White Eagles, Brockton Boxer Football Alumni and the Democratic City Committee.
But everyone knew that he lived for his family and would boast about them to anyone who would listen.
Waldron earned a bachelor of arts from St. Joseph’s College in Maine in 1979.
