GEEHAN [Tuscon AZ, The Tucson Citizen, 27 November 1999] James Geehan -- Mr. Geehan, 76, died Wednesday. "He was a person of impeccable integrity," said Mark Kimble, associate editor of the Tucson Citizen. "Regardless of how the news affected the people he knew, he let the reporters write what they felt were legitimate news stories. He didn't let friends or acquaintances get in the way," said Kimble, who was a reporter and city editor during Geehan's tenure at the Citizen. "The news (business) was sacred for him," said daughter Barbara Geehan Wilson, who followed in her father's footsteps as a reporter and editor of several Gannett newspapers. Mr. Geehan's wife, Betty, said he was an "ardent worker" for newspapers, even after he retired in 1986. As a visiting "editor in residence" at the University of Arizona and at other universities, he mentored many young people interested in the news field, she said. Mr. Geehan began his career as a reporter for the Providence (R.I.) Journal-Bulletin. He worked there for 20 years, rising to state editor, managing editor and assistant general manager. In 1968, he joined the Gannett Co. as editor of the Plainfield (N.J.) Courier-News. A year later, he was named editor and publisher of the San Bernadino (Calif.) Sun-Telegram, now The Sun, where he worked for eight years. In 1977, Mr. Geehan took over the helm of the Citizen, succeeding William A. Small Jr., after Gannett bought the afternoon newspaper from Small's family. "He was an excellent newsman," said Kimble, who kept ties with Mr. Geehan after he retired in 1986 from Gannett News Service in Roslyn, Va., and moved back to Tucson with his wife. A lover of the outdoors, Mr. Geehan enjoyed camping, gardening and fishing in Arizona, his wife said. Mr. Geehan was born in Somerville, Mass., and graduated from Brown University with a degree in economics. Prior to working in newspapers, he served with the Army Air Corps in Europe during World War II. "Jim was always true to his family, profession, friends and himself. He lived life to the fullest and found a lot to laugh about along the way," his wife said. The Geehans - who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in June - were dedicated travelers. The couple camped all over the United States and visited dozens of countries. Mr. Geehan was also active in the community, serving on several boards, including The Nature Conservancy, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Southern Arizona chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, St. Gregory College Preparatory School , the Foothills Forum and the Graduates Club. In addition to his wife, survivors include son James of Oakton, Va.; daughter Barbara Geehan Wilson and her husband Floyd of Alexandria, Va.; daughter Janet Geehan Hoffman and her husband Kenneth of Alamo, Calif.; grandchildren Andrew Hoffman and Casey Elizabeth Hoffman; and sister Jean Waldron of Massachusetts. Memorial services are pending. The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, 2021 N. Kinney Road; the Alzheimer's Association, 2221 N.

GERAGHTY [Attleboro MA Sun Chronicle, Tuesday 18 Apr 2006] Attleboro -- Henry John “Duke” Geraghty, 85, of Jessie Avenue, South Attleboro, died unexpectedly on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2006 upon arrival at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro. He was the loving and caring husband of the late Theresa E. (Patenaude) Geraghty, to whom he was married for 51 years when she died in 2000. Born in Attleboro on Dec. 9, 1920, he was a son of the late John H. and Sophie (Vensky) Geraghty. He grew up as a child in South Attleboro, later moving to Pawtucket, where he resided until returning to South Attleboro 50 years ago. He was educated in Attleboro and had attended Attleboro High School. At the age of 16, he joined the Civilian Conservation Corps and served until reaching the age of 17 when he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He proudly served his country during the World War II era and achieved the rank of infantry sergeant. He saw combat in Hawaii during the invasion of Pearl Harbor. Mr. Geraghty started his career at the Hemphill Company in Central Falls, R.I. and later worked for A.P. Mossberg in Attleboro and the Draper Corporation in Pawtucket. In 1958, he began his employment with the Hasbro Company in Pawtucket where he worked until his retirement in 1987 following 29 years of loyal service.

A true patriot, he was a former member of the American Legion Post 312, South Attleboro. He earned the stage name of “Duke of Tap” for his love for the art of dance that he so enjoyed with his wife.

It was the desire for performing that brought Mr. and Mrs. Geraghty together -- she was a singer and he an accomplished dancer. The rest, as they say, was history. “Duke” served for many years as the “master of ceremonies” at the former Rosewood in Rhode Island. He loved nature and enjoyed time spent playing horseshoes and saltwater fishing. Both he and his wife were ardent animal lovers and at one time were credited with saving the entire fish population of Lees Pond in South Attleboro. The couple was returning home when they saw that the pond had been drained but all of the fish remained in the waterless pond. Home the couple went to fetch pails, nets and supplies to rescue the helpless fish. They captured each one and returned them to their natural habitat by releasing them in Cranberry Pond. He leaves a daughter: Lynda Guimond and her husband Raymond Guimond of North Attleboro; a son, John H. Geraghty and his wife Laura Geraghty of North Attleboro; three grandchildren: Timothy Guimond of Foxboro, Heather Snow of Orlando, Fla. and Johnathan Snow of North Attleboro; a great-granddaughter, Hope Snow of Orlando, Fla.; a sister, Lucy Bowen of South Attleboro; a brother, Ronald Geraghty of Cumberland, R.I. and several nieces and nephews.
