Mulvey, Timothy P.
Timothy Patrick Mulvey (Tim) 55, a New Milford resident died April 29, 2014 after an eight year courageous battle with lung cancer. He was born February 10, 1959 in Poughkeepsie NY to Helen and Richard Mulvey. Tim was a graduate of Poughkeepsie High School where he earned the distinction of being a four sport varsity player (swimming, crew, football and track). Tim was recognized with the Ross Memorial Award for his tenacity and sports achievements. Tim graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Financial Accounting from Pace University and served as the Vice President of his senior class. It was at Pace that he met Maureen, his future wife.
Tim and Maureen were happily married for 29 years. Tim was devoted to his wife and three sons, his parents, sisters and brothers, cousins, nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Together Tim and Maureen shared much love and joy. His optimism, enthusiasm, caring, sense of humor, generosity and smile won the hearts of all those who loved him dearly and even those he first met. His diligence, faith and humility enabled him to fiercely but quietly battle his disease without ever letting it define him. Tim took tremendous pride in his cherished three sons and relished any and all of their activities.
Tim began his career at Nestle and worked in various financial and managerial roles at IBM for over 25 years. Tim's career included a three year international assignment in Paris, France. Tim's contagious and endearing enthusiasm will be greatly missed. His gentle strength and many acts of kindness were endearing to the lives he touched. His dignity, faith and love out shined his illness and prolonged his life.
