Edward McDonough Obituary
1938 ~ 2014
Edward Joseph McDonough of Salt Lake City died Monday, November 17, 2014, of a lung disease.
Ned was born November 24, 1938, to Mildred Anne Devine and Utah Supreme Court Justice Roger I. McDonough. He was raised in Our Lady of Lourdes parish and attended school at Uintah, Cathedral, and Judge Memorial, graduating in 1957. Ned attended Notre Dame and the University of Utah, graduating with a Masters in English from Utah in 1966. He married Grace Mary "Gay" Gallivan on August 13, 1966 at the Cathedral of the Madeleine. They had three children Edward Joseph, Michael Roger (Renon Warner) and Grace Anne.
Ned briefly taught English at the University of Utah before following his father and his brother, Roger Jim, into the law. He graduated from the University of Utah Law School in 1970. He joined his brother's firm, Jones, Waldo, Holbrook and McDonough, and was later of counsel at Berman and O'Rourke, prior to opening his own estate-planning practice. From 1985 through 2002 he developed and wrote the "Point of Law" column in The Salt Lake Tribune.
A private pilot like his mother before him, Ned enjoyed all aspects of aviation. He was an avid skier, a poet and a playwright. Ned was a devoted husband and father, a beloved uncle to nephews, nieces, grand-nephews and grand-nieces, and friend to generations of Preston Street children.
He was preceded in death by brothers Roger J. McDonough and John V. McDonough. In addition to his wife Gay and his children, Ned is survived by his brother Gerald Michael "Gary" (Ronni), his sister Anne Moore, and sister-in-law Betty McDonough.
