Greg Feeney, A Lifelong Area Resident, Dies at 55
Greg Feeney, 55, died suddenly of a heart attack at Vassar Brothers Medical Center on February 10, 2017. Greg was born on November 15, 1961 in Poughkeepsie, NY, to Don and Joanne Feeney. He lived most of his life in Wappingers Falls, NY. He was a graduate of John Jay High School, East Fishkill, NY, class of 1979. He continued to graduate with honors from Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY, class of 1983. He worked as a Manager of Infrastructure and Operations at IBM for 34 years. Most importantly, he was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and mentor. He touched the lives of all who knew him.
One of his proudest moments was receiving a patent through his work with IBM. Outside of working for IBM, he was involved for several years with the local volleyball club, APEX. The sport meant a lot to him and was something he shared with his daughters, brother-in-law, and nieces.
In addition to his three children, he was a father figure to many. He was willing to lend a hand to anyone and everyone who needed it, even from states away. He will be missed in more ways than one.

Feeney; his father, Don Feeney; his siblings, John Feeney and wife, Rosemarie, Susan Hughes and husband, Garry, David Feeney and wife, Tracy; his many nieces and nephews; and one great-niece.
