The following obituary was written by the deceased:
Kennebunk-Michael Aloysius Mahoney September 27, 1961 – July 29. 2019
It is with a collective heavy heart we announce that with an even heavier foot Jesus has kicked our brother Michael A. Mahoney through the uprights of eternity.
Born some 57 years ago in Biddeford, ME, he was the sixth son of 10 kids to Lawrence P. and Nancy T. Mahoney. Early childhood was spent in Portland then Kennebunkport, attending any school that would take his parents tuition money until finally graduating Kennebunk High School and although there has never been a monument erected to the effect, he was senior class president.
Never a lack of ambition, his work resume was slightly more successful than his marriage history, having owned and or operated many small businesses over the years from a pizza shop to property services and restaurants to real estate.
Around 1984 he met the love of his life. Or so he thought. From his first marriage came his first son, Michael Copeland (not Aloysius) and although the marriage was brief, he took great pride in being included in the Copeland family.
After a brief run at sanity, in 1992 he re-established a relationship with Katherine Roderick, a girl that couldn’t recall their first meeting and couldn’t stand him in the second meeting….that is until he saved her life and then she married him on round three. From this marriage his son, Casey Patrick and daughter and unmistakable favorite (just ask her) Erin Ann were born. They somehow managed to fit 752 years of marital bliss into those 17 years. Or at least it seemed that long.
Michael is predeceased by all the people that died before he did; his father, Lawrence Patrick Mahoney, mother Nancy Towle Mahoney, and brothers Mark Francis Mahoney and Kevin Cavanaugh Mahoney.
Michael is survived by the absolute greatest bunch of family members who nursed and nurtured him through this whole illness; his sons, Michael Copeland Mahoney and Casey Patrick Mahoney, his daughter, Erin Ann Mahoney; brothers, Timothy J. Mahoney, Patrick M. Mahoney, Daniel J. Mahoney and his wife Elizabeth Michael and their children, Zoe Vee and Captain Cal; sister Ellen Cecelia Mahoney and husband known as Brother Ed, and their children, Pierce, Alex (and her daughter Susie Pearl), Lucia and Simone; his sister Rosemary Ann Mahoney, her former husband, Gary Whitmore and their children Sarah and Dan and Rosie’s son John; his sister Moriah Beth Mahoney and her daughter Carmen; his brother Andrew Towle Mahoney and his children, Kevin and Ben; his brother Mark’s son Max and his brother Kevin’s daughter Molly and their families.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, August 11, 2019 at The Barn at Smith Farm, 226 Gray Road, Falmouth, Maine from 2-6pm. Michael’s children and siblings encourage you to pay your respects and share stories and celebrate their beloved father and brother with them.
