Joseph P. Mahoney Jr.

Joseph P. Mahoney Jr., passed away on December 20, 2022, surrounded by his loving wife and four adoring sisters. 

Joe graduated Wakefield High School in 1988, where he met his lifelong friends.  They had their annual trip to Limerick, Maine, hanging out and golfing.  Weekend trips following the Patriots and Opening Day at the Red Sox.  Joe graduated from Salem State University with a degree in graphic design and worked as an independent graphic designer.

Joe met his wife Christina in 2001 through friends. Christina was smitten from day one.  On their first date he spent most of his time beaming about his big family and all his incredible nieces and nephews and sharing touching stories. 

Joe and Christina married in 2006 and shortly after welcomed Emma in 2007 and Sophia in 2014, the joys of his life!  Joe loved spending time with his family, especially family vacations in Aruba and Salisbury, Massachusetts.  At the end of the day he would watch the sunset and say “This is the Best Time of the Day!”

Joe was a stay-at-home Dad shaping the wonderful compassionate people Emma and Sophia have become.  Our memories of Joe being a wonderful friend, brother, son, uncle, father and husband, is what we will embrace as we think about him and miss him.  Until we meet again, we love you!
