John Francis Gallagher, IV

April 6, 2003 — May 29, 2024

St. Albans

John Francis Gallagher, IV, known for his fierce love for his family and his unwavering passion for animals, passed away on May 29, 2024, in Burlington, VT. He was born on April 6, 2003, in Burlington to Becky McGregor and John Francis Gallagher, III.
John's love for cars was not just a hobby but a deep part of who he was. From his Subaru to his Honda and especially his beloved Toyota truck, he found solace in the world of vehicles and parts. His career revolved around this passion, and he poured his heart into every project he worked on.
Beyond his love for cars, John will be remembered for the love and care he showered upon his family, friends and beloved pets. He was a fierce lover to those dear to him, especially to his step daughter Zahra Kane-Kelly. John's stubborn yet endearing nature often led him to have the last word, whether it was in good times or bad.
In addition to Zahra, John is survived by his fiancée Kayle Kelly.  He also leaves behind his parents Becky McGregor and her fiancé Chris Connelley and John Francis Gallagher, III, and his step father Joseph McGregor; siblings Elizabeth, Dorothy Darling, Kayla Allen, Amber Vincent, and Evan McGregor and his cousin and best friend Tyler Linehan. He is also survived by his grandparents, Janice and Stephen Linehan and Susan Elsworth, his step grand mother Suzanne McGregor, and his aunts and uncles, Lisa Tomasik and her husband Tyler, Robert Linehan, Shelley Hood, Jacob Linehan and aunt KK.  
One of the fondest memories cherished by those close to John is the time he spent with Zahra – creating precious moments filled with laughter and joy, fishing with his father, and enjoyed Syracuse Basketball with his father. His presence brought warmth and comfort to all who knew him.
