Posted by IrishCrystal33 on 6/11/2013 to News & Events
Jim O'Leary was from Waterford Country, Ireland and continued to live their throughout his life. He began working for Waterford at the age of 15 as an apprentice and by 24 had become a master cutter. He is credited with designing the Araglin, Carina, and Castlemaine patterns along with some of the first Times Square Millenium pieces. In 1989 he became design director and since then has traveled the globe as an ambassador for Waterford Crystal. After a 2 and a half year battle with cancer Jim O'Leary passed away at home, surrounded by family, on June 8th at the age of 69. His family asks that you please donate: The American Cancer Society Attn: Christopher Thomas 30 Speen Street Framingham, MA 01701 Please mention "Hope Lodge Boston, Jim O'Leary" on the check and include your name and address. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Jim O'Leary. He is a great loss to the community in Ireland and Waterford Crystal, but we will all remember him through his stunning designs in crystal.
