The World War II Memorial The bench emplaced in the World
placed there to honor a War II Memorial in appreciation
generation of service to South of John T. "Doc" Tynan's lifetime
Boston by City Councilor of community service.
James "Jim" Kelly.
At the Appreciation Banquet for Jimmy Kelly and “Doc” Tynan, Cmdr. Joe Murphy announced that two benches bearing their names had been designed, fabricated, and emplaced in the World War II Memorial near the Sugar Bowl. These are pictured above; they fit very well with the beauty and simplicity of the surrounding cenotaph.
The benches were underwritten by the Brown Fund, which is chaired by Robert Fleming. They were designed by Robert Schur, who is well known for his work on South Boston memorials. Both gentlemen attended the September 9 Appreciation Banquet for “Doc” and Jimmy.
