Mark L. Mahoney, age 71, of Monroe, beloved husband of Gwyn (Krapowich) Mahoney, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 28, 2021 in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loving family. Born in Norwalk on April 14, 1950, he was the youngest child of the late R. Leo and Wilma (Frisbee) Mahoney.
Mark graduated from Norwalk High School in 1968. Soon after, he began a career as a commercial truck operator – employed by companies such as Genestra Construction, Norcon, and DT&S Pools. Concurrently, Mark joined the Norwalk Police Department in 1977. He served in that capacity until his retirement at the rank of Sergeant in 1998. Upon his retirement from the police service, Mark established himself as an owner/operator for ML Mahoney, LLC. He was contracted by Consumers Petroleum and Island Transportation until his retirement in January 2021.
Mark was a gregarious and personable soul. His authentic kindheartedness was well received by his colleagues, as well as animals.

During his infrequent recreation, he enjoyed reading about or visiting historical sites/exhibits. Mark had a talent for writing and drawing; repeatedly witnessed scribbling on scrap paper. He was also an enthusiast of strength and fitness. He maintained a regular exercise routine throughout most of his adult life.
