It is with great sadness that the family of Frank E. Mahoney, Jr. announces his passing after a brief illness, on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at the age of 58 years.

Son of the late Barbara A. and Frank E. Mahoney, Sr., Frank was a long-time resident of Melrose, MA until his recent move to Reading, MA.

Frank is survived by his brother Larry and his wife Christine Mahoney, his sister Patricia and her husband Dean Groves, niece Christine Brady, her husband Christopher, and their children Reaghan and Norah, niece Melissa Garfield, her husband Eric, and their children Jake and Molly, and niece Kimberly Talbot, her husband Tim, and their children Liam and Callahan.

Frank was a graduate of Malden Catholic High School in Malden, MA, and went on to obtain both a BS degree and an MPA degree from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. He was fortunate to have a long 31-year career at Northeastern University and had an active role in the implementation of the Boston Campus Master Plan improvements and renovations, most recently as Director of Work Management, Design & Construction in the Facilities Division. He received many awards and recognitions for his important contributions to the University, and developed lifelong personal relationships with hundreds of colleagues, vendors, and builders. He was relied upon by many to get the job done.

Frank proudly served on the boards of numerous organizations, including: Northeastern University Federal Credit Union Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and Credit Committee; Chaired the Year 2K Task Force for both the Credit Union and Northeastern University's Physical Plant; Malden Catholic High School Board of Trustees and Chairperson, Plant Committee; Melrose Youth Hockey; and Golf Chairman of Bellevue Golf Club.

Frank was an Assistant Coach of Northeastern University's Women's Ice Hockey team during the 1980's. He is credited with coaching Ice Hockey, Baseball and Football for many years in the City of Melrose Youth Programs. Youth sports were at the very foundation of his belief to keep young people involved in positive personal development.

Visiting hours will be on Wednesday, July 26th from Gately Funeral Home, 79 West Foster St. Melrose, MA 02176, (781) 665-1949, from 4-8pm. Frank's funeral mass will be at St. Mary of the Annunciation at 9 Herbert Street on Thursday, July 27th at 10am. Interment will be private.
