Obituary of Kevin Joseph Mooney
Kevin Joseph Mooney died at home on Seaman Avenue in Inwood on October 18, 2022, at the age of 68 years. Kevin, who was a lifelong resident of Inwood, was born on March 5, 1954, to John Joseph (Jack) and Marjorie McLaughlin Mooney. He was raised on Seaman Avenue along with older brother Gregory (Anne Marie)and younger siblings Sheila Minogue (Donald), Danny (Maura), and Deirdre Sullivan (John).
He was a loving son and brother and a devoted uncle to fifteen nieces and nephews in addition to fifteen great nieces and nephews. He was beloved by his many cousins and by a host of neighborhood friends and colleagues.
Growing up, Kevin was a Scout and a Little Leaguer, and he enjoyed all the sports offered at Good Shepherd. He later played football with the Inwood Colts and treasured those days for the rest of his life. He was a lifelong fan of the New York Yankees and the New York Giants. In his youth, he often wore a football jersey with the number 70, like Giant linebacker Sam Huff, one of his favorites, and he enjoyed games at West Virginia University, Huff’s alma mater, along with games at West Point and Fordham. Perhaps more important to him than big time college football were the sporting events of nieces and nephews.
A third generation Inwood resident, Kevin was a proud alumnus of Good Shepherd School and La Salle Academy. He was a devoted teacher at St. Rose of Lima, Annunciation, and, of course, Good Shepherd.
Visitation will be held at Riverdale Funeral Home, Inc 5044 Broadway, NY on Thursday 3-8pm. Funeral Mass will be held at Good Shepherd Church, 4967 Broadway, NY on Friday 10am. Interment to follow at St. Raymond's Cemetery, Bronx, NY.
In lieu of flowers, Kevin’s family suggests donations in his memory to Good Shepherd School, New York.
