Dr. Francis Thomas Daly, a retired internist, died of a stroke June 4 at his daughter's Marshfield, Wis., home. The Towson resident was 80.
Born in County Offaly, Ireland, he earned his medical degree at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland, in 1953.
He worked in England for a year before doing an internship in Delaware and completed his residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
While at Hopkins, he met his future wife, the former Geraldine Leonore Austraw, a pharmacist.
Dr. Daly established a medical practice in Baltimore and had offices on East Chase Street and in Charles Village. He was on the staffs of Union Memorial and St. Joseph hospitals and Greater Baltimore Medical Center.
He worked in internal medicine, cardiology and geriatric medicine.
"He remained passionate about his homeland of Ireland, and hoped in his lifetime he would see his country without political unrest," said his daughter, Dr. Linda Marie Daly-O'Neill of Marshfield.
He retired nearly 20 years ago and enjoyed reading history.
He also enjoyed fishing.
In addition to his daughter, survivors include two sons, Dr. Francis Thomas Daly Jr. of York, Pa., and Brian Patrick Daly of Olney; two brothers, Dr. Brendan Daly of San Diego and Dr. Noel P. Daly of Dublin; a sister, Margaret Daly-Murphy of Los Angeles; and four grandchildren. Services were private.
