John F. Connolly, MD passed away this week at the age of 71. John graduated from Saint Peter's College in 1957 and earned his M.D. degree from CMDNJ – New Jersey Medical School in 1961. He completed his post-graduate orthopaedic surgical training at the University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital in 1966 and served two years active duty in the Air Force during the Vietnam War.

Since 1968, John was involved in full-time academic orthopaedic surgical education, research and patient care at several intuitions including Vanderbilt University, University of Nebraska College of Medicine and was the founding chair at the combined Creighton University-University of Nebrwaska program in orthopaedics. John received academic awards from the College of Medicine and was designated as a Senior Fulbright Scholar in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Western Austraila in 1982. Most recently he was Chairman of Orlando Regional Medical Center's residency program in Orthopaedic Surgery.

Dr. Connolly's career brought him far from his Jersey City origins but not without fond remembrances of Saint Peter's College and the dedication of its faculty. He felt privileged to have endowed the Schuh Professorship, which is held by Professor Leonard Sciorra.

John Connolly is survived by his beloved wife Anne and their six children.
