Former Red Sox and Boston Celtics Player
Foxborough – Gene Conley pass quietly with family on July 4, 2017. He was 86 years old. During his life he enjoyed a dual-sports career in Baseball and Basketball and had the distinction of having championship rings in two professional sports. When asked which he preferred, he would state, “Golf!”
He is survived by his partner of 66 years former Katie Dizney. He and Katie created and ran the Foxboro Paper Company for over 37 years. He leaves behind three children, Dr. Gene R. Conley, Dr. Kitty Quick, and Kelly Conley, seven grandchildren, Dr. Gene Conley, Jr, Dr. Kimberly Conley, Dr. Stacey Malcomson, Ryan Malcomson, Katie Fletcher, Patti-Grace Quick, James Quick and great-grandpa to Tessa and Bailey Malcomson.
He was strong, supportive, and a sure smile. A friend to teammates, a sage to his family, and a blessing to those he touched. You will be missed Dad.
Funeral services are private and are under the care of the Roberts and Sons Funeral Home, Foxborough. To light a special candle in Gene’s memory please visit the funeral home web site at www.robertsandsonsfuneralhome.com.
