Obituary for Timothy Joseph Mahoney

Timothy Joseph Mahoney, 85, of Suffield and Fort Myers FL, beloved husband of Mary (Fitzgibbons) Mahoney, died peacefully surrounded by his family and entered into eternal life on December 26th, 2021.

He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend to all who knew him. Tim will always be remembered for his kindness, generosity, his roaring laugh and countless stories.

Tim was the son of Jeremiah O’Mahony and Margaret (McSweeney) O’Mahony, born on February 21, 1936, in Ballydehob, County Cork, Ireland. He immigrated to the United States in 1957 and settled in Hartford County where he met his wife Mary and he married in 1962.

Although only in his adopted country for six months, Tim joined the United States National Guard in 1958 and did his basic training at Fort Dix, New Jersey. He worked for Aetna, Main Line Homes, and Variety Homes before he opened his own company with Mary’s blessing, Timwood Homes, in Newington, CT in 1972. He was a member of the Home Builders Association for many years and an active member of his community. In 1976 he built his family home in Suffield, CT where many family members still live.

Tim lived a life devoted to his faith. He has been a communicant and supporter of Sacred Heart Church in Suffield for over 40 years. Heaven has been waiting for him.

He continued building and renovating homes throughout his life, but Tim was happiest when he was with his family. His presence was always a welcome gift. Tim valued so many people and relationships built throughout his life with his family, many friends, and neighbors.
