Marvin “Patrick” Mahoney, age 74, of Quincy, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at 4:42 pm in Blessing Hospital.
Patrick was a 1962 graduate of Quincy High School and received his bachelor’s degree from Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri. He was employed at Gardner Denver before his career took him out of Quincy for several years. He worked for Hyster in Danville, Illinois and Clark Equipment in Battle Creek, Michigan. Upon his return to the Quincy area, Patrick was employed at Harris Broadcast. He then completed the last 31 years of his career at Knapheide Manufacturing, retiring as a manager of warranty distribution and quality control. Patrick’s family is grateful to the Knapheide family for their support and commitment to Patrick in allowing him to complete his career from home.
Patrick was an officer and past president of the Full Gospel Businessmen, he and Mary also participated in Marriage Encounter and Cursillo besides being involved in many Bible study groups.
Patrick enjoyed fly fishing for rainbow trout whether it was in high altitudes, fast water or ice. He and his family would travel where there were abundant fly fishing opportunities, especially Idaho, and that led to Patrick developing a great affinity for bears.
