Obituary Condolences

MULVEY, KENNETH J., JR. Kenneth J. Mulvey Jr. of Guilford passed away on Thursday, July 21, at the Connecticut Hospice after a brave battle with melanoma. He was born on November 19, 1950 in New Haven, son of the late Kenneth J. Mulvey Sr. and Elizabeth (Cassidy) Mulvey. He was the beloved husband of Nancy (O'Keefe) Mulvey and the devoted father of Gregory K. Mulvey of Farmington, Timothy P. Mulvey of Guilford and Tara C. Mulvey of Washington D.C. Ken attended St. Aedan's School, Hopkins Grammar School, and graduated cum laude from Boston College School of Business in 1972. He received his JD from Fordham University School of Law in 1975, where he served on the Urban Law Journal staff. Ken began the practice of law in December 1975 with the office of Flanagan and Flanagan. He spent his entire career in the same firm, eventually rising to be senior partner in Mulvey, Oliver, Gould and Crotta. Ken was a member of the New Haven Bar Association and the Connecticut Bar Association. Past president of the New Haven Jaycees, Ken was one of the organizers of the first state games for Special Olympics. During many seasons coaching basketball, baseball, and lacrosse he taught Guilford youth the value of sportsmanship and love for the game. Among his many assumed responsibilities in youth sports, Ken was the president of the Guilford Youth Basketball League, Commissioner of Guilford Little League Baseball, and president of the Netminders, a parent lacrosse booster group. He also was a member of the Standing Fields Committee and served on the Guilford Parks and Recreation Commission for twelve years, eight of those as Chairperson. An avid Boston sports fan, particularly the Red Sox and Boston College Eagles, he was happiest cheering on his teams with family and friends. He was a wonderful husband, father, friend and colleague and will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in St. George Church, 33 Whitfield Street, Guilford on Tuesday, July 26, at 11:30 AM. Burial will follow the Mass at St. George Cemetery, Hubbard Road, Guilford. Friends may call on Monday, July 25 from 4 to 8 PM at the Guilford Funeral Home, 115 Church Street, Guilford.
