Stephen was born in Worcester and graduated from South High School and attended Salem State College.

He was the son of the late John E. Mahoney.

He worked for the United States Postal Service for 27 years as a letter carrier in Framingham until he became sick. Stephen had the same route for over 20 years which allowed him to get to know his customers that he truly enjoyed.

Mahoney was a member of Our Lady of the Angels Church. He enjoyed golfing, playing softball, going to the ocean and was a lifelong New England sports fan. Stephen’s favorite pastime was spending time with his sons. The family would like to thank Stephen’s co-workers and customers for all the support and compassion they offered during his illness.

A graveside service will be held in St. John’s Cemetery at a later date. O’CONNOR BROTHERS FUNERAL HOME, 592 Park Avenue is assisting the family with arrangements.
