Obituary of Kevin S. Connolly


Clifton Park- Kevin S. Connolly, of Clifton Park, beloved husband of the late Mary T. (Kiernan) Connolly, entered into eternal life on Thursday, January 15, 2023 at his residence.

Born in New York, NY, he was the son of the late Martin H. Connolly and Dorothy (Bleakley) Mayer. Kevin and Mary shared a beautiful marriage of over 50 years. Survivors include his daughters Trisha McNeill and Dr. Denise (Dr. Ronald Wolf) Connolly, and his cherished sister Barbara Armstrong.

Kevin was a devout Catholic and a kind and generous husband, father, and dear friend to many. Kevin was a voracious reader on a variety of subjects, an intellectual who could debate both sides of a subject with anyone. He was a history buff, a lifelong learner, and always found joy discovering new things. He loved old movies and the theater.

Kevin worked for New York State for 54 years, beginning his government career with the NY State Police and then moving on to various administration positions at the Department of Labor and the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, from which he retired in 2016. He earned his Juris Doctorate while working full-time for New York State.
