Daly Sr., John A.

John A. Daly Sr., age 71, beloved husband of Susan J. Daly (nee Klosinski); loving father of Lisa Daly, John A. Daly Jr, Shannon (John) Husted-Dadlez, Kevin Daly and Katelyn Daly; caring grandfather of Corey and Carissa; dearest great grandfather of six; cherished son of the late Samuel and Anne Daly; dear brother of Mary Louise (the late Richard) Pisone, the late Patrick (Terry) Daly, and Michael Daly; fond brother-in-law to the late Elaine (the late Peter) Bianco, Carol (Jim) Malecky, Diane (Ed) Webb, and Anita Klosinski; proud uncle to many nieces and nephews.

In 1983, John was elected Alderman in the City of Oak Forest, serving the 4th Ward until 1989, when he became City Administrator. John became Administrator for the Village of Orland Hills in 1994. A past Chairman of the Chicago Southland Convention and Visitor's Bureau and member of the Southwest Conference of Mayors, John also chaired the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association's Management & Finance Committee from 1996 until he retired from the Village in 2015. John was first elected to the South Suburban College Board of Trustees in 1991 and became Vice-Chair in 1994. He was re-elected five times and served there until the time of his passing.

John loved the game of golf, recording two holes-in-one. He also enjoyed coaching and supporting his children in all of their activities. As a friend, mentor, and public servant, John influenced the lives of countless people. His warmth, humor, and positivity will be missed by all.

We'd like to offer our deepest condolences to you, Susan, and the entire family. Looking back thru all the years that I knew John (and the Daly family), I must say he was an outstanding "stand-up" guy. His smile and the "Daly humor" stands out in my mind. My family and I are very grateful for John and all of his help in the past. He will be missed. Rest in Peace dear friend!
