Obituary for Paul J. Mahoney

Paul J. Mahoney of Winchester, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on September 30th, 2018 after a long illness. Paul is survived by his beloved wife Doris (Barbaro) of 59 years. Loving father to Paul Jr. and his wife Linda of West Tisbury, Peter of Wayland, Susan Covino of Winchester, Thomas and his wife Cindy of Winchester, Michael and his wife Nicola of Townsend, and Lauren Danaher of Winchester.

Paul was the cherished grandfather of Emily, Audrey and Julia Covino, Lorianne Wescott, Patrick Danaher, and Sean, Shannon, Brett, Russell, Morgan, Andrew, Molly, Trevor and Jack Mahoney and great-grandfather to Jack and Beckette Wescott.

Paul touched the lives of everyone he knew with his generous spirit, warm smile, and humble nature.

Born in 1935 to Charles B. and Martha Mahoney (Russell), Paul was the youngest sibling to Martha Logan of CA, Charles Mahoney of NH and was predeceased by Marie Donovan, Margaret C. Mahoney and Edward Russell Mahoney.

Paul was a 1953 graduate of Winchester High School and received a B.S. in Economics from Boston College in 1957. Paul served in the US Army after college before a brief stint as a high school history teacher at Boston Latin.

In 1959, Paul established the company that would ultimately become his lifelong passion: Mahoney’s Garden Center. He grew a tiny roadside farm stand on Cambridge Street in Winchester selling vegetables, into a full-service garden center with seven locations throughout Eastern MA. Working alongside his children and grandchildren was the joy of his life. Paul’s innovation and success in business made him an admired leader in the industry and a close friend to many of his colleagues. He will be forever remembered for his kind nature and generosity to his peers, employees, community and family.

Paul’s other great passions were history and travel. He spent a lifetime exploring the world and experiencing new cultures and their history with his family and friends. Paul was a true patriot who loved his country dearly. He was active in many historical and military organizations, most notably the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts in which he was Captain Commanding in 1996-1997. With the Ancients, he was proud to travel the world and see it through a historical lens to honor those that came before him.

Throughout Paul’s life, he marveled at the outdoors and immersed himself in the natural world. He was in his element in the woods of Nova Scotia, at peace boating in the waters of Cape Cod, and was most content skiing the mountains of Loon. Even after 83 years, Paul was still in awe of a beautiful sunset or the stars in a clear night sky.

Paul’s remarkable life was always grounded by his strong Catholic faith, his love for his wife Doris and the time spent with his children and grandchildren. Paul will be remembered for living without pretension and embracing everything life had to offer, always living it to the fullest.

Please join Paul’s family in celebrating a life well lived. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Eulalia’s Church 50 Ridge Street Winchester on Saturday October 6th at 10:00 AM. Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend. Visiting hours will also be held at St. Eulalia's Church on Friday October 5th from 4-7PM. Interment Wildwood Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
