Condolences for the family of “Edward Patrick Mahoney”

Condolence from Michael J. Sheridan, Duke AM 1994 on January 9th, 2009 12:00 am

I audited 2 courses with Fr. Mahoney while I was in graduate school at Duke. Very memorable. God rest him merry!

Condolence from Rosemary Mahoney on January 11th, 2009 12:00 am

Eddie I am so sorry I can’t be there. I prayed for you in church today and asked my priest to pray for you from the altar which was a comfort since I can’t be there. You lived an especially good life.

Condolence from Mary T. Clark RSCJ on January 18th, 2009 12:00 am

My prayerful sympathy to Patrick, Kerry,Myles and Stephen at this time of losing the earthly presence of your dear brother, Ed.He was a wonderful scholar, philosophy professor, and loyal colleague. He chaired the Program Committee of SMRP superbly for years. We were good friends, and I shall miss our talks, and his great sense of humor. I rejoiced in his priesthood and dedication to the Newman Centre.

Condolence from Father Ray Roden on March 10th, 2009 12:00 am

While I was startled and saddened to hear of your death, I rejoice at your rubbing elbows with the saints. I’m sure you and Albert the Great are having a grand old time. I enormously enjoyed our dinners together two or three times a year, some great conversations, and lots of outrageous laughs! It’s a wonder we were never thrown out of any of those fine NYC establishments! Your dedication and love for your Duke students was truly inspiring, as was your under-the-radar priestly ministry with them and for them. Your stories of Dr. Mahoney becoming Father Ed at the end of a memorable undergrad first semester were just priceless. You were/are an amazing priest and brilliant teacher! I’ll miss you. I’ll pray for you and humbly ask your prayers. I look forward to seeing you again.

Condolence from Charles Dunlop on April 24th, 2009 12:00 am

As a graduate student in philosophy at Duke, I took several courses from Ed Mahoney; he also directed my M.A. thesis on Plato. That was a long time before Ed became a priest, although the earmarks of his religious commitments were present early on. I shall remember Ed Mahoney fondly; he was first a mentor, and later a friend.

Condolence from Peter Wilson on April 25th, 2009 12:00 am

Ed Mahoney was a professor of mine while a grad student at Duke in the 60s. His quick wit was memorable but most important to me his essential kindness and willingness to treat the student as a full and serious partner in the pursuit of truth. He counted.
