San Francisco Chronicle (Sunday) - - LIFETRIBUTES -

Kevin Michael Mul­laney was born Jan­uary 21, 1936 in San Fran­cisco, the son of Kath­leen (Car­roll) and Thomas P. Mul­laney, and brother of Thomas A. Mul­laney, who pre­ceded him in death. He passed away on Septem­ber 10, 2018 from ad­vanced in­ter­sti­tial lung dis­ease and Parkin­son­ism. He is sur­vived by his sis­ter-in-law, Vi­vian (Arend) Mul­laney, nephew Martin and his wife Ce­cile and their chil­dren Kyle and Jas­mine; nephew Pa­trick and his chil­dren Alexan­der, Kath­leen, Michael and Ser­abeth; niece Mary Molly and her daugh­ter Mar­i­lyn; and niece Su­san. He was a life­long res­i­dent of San Fran­cisco’s Park­side District and parish­ioner of St. Ce­cilia Catholic Church. Kevin grad­u­ated from Ri­or­dan High School in 1954 and at­tended San Fran­cisco State Univer­sity for his Bach­e­lor’s and Mas­ter’s De­grees. He spent his ca­reer at the Cal­i­for­nia Pub­lic Util­i­ties Com­mis­sion, start­ing as a clerk and switch­ing to Traf­fic An­a­lyst af­ter re­ceiv­ing his Mas­ter’s de­gree. Kevin loved a good party and was a so­cial but­ter­fly through­out his life. In the 1960s and 70s he was ac­tive with the Old St. Mary’s and Green-Stein­ers young adult groups. For 25 years, Kevin trav­elled to cities across the U.S. for the an­nual Catholic Alumni Club con­ven­tion. He was a de­voted mem­ber of the Ir­ish Cul­tural Cen­ter and the Ir­ish Lit­er­ary and His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. He be­lieved there was no more po­etry left to write since all the best po­ems have al­ready been writ­ten, by the Ir­ish. He reg­u­larly went to the Ir­ish, Silent, and Noir film fes­ti­vals. It brought him joy to sing Ir­ish bal­lads at open mic night. He was a clas­sic “left-wing lib­eral from San Fran­cisco” who got fired up talk­ing about so­cial jus­tice is­sues. He was loved for his good­ness and gen­eros­ity. Vis­i­ta­tion is on Mon­day, Sept. 17, be­gin­ning at 3:00 p.m. fol­lowed by a Rosary Vigil at 7:00 p.m. at Dug­gan’s Serra Mor­tu­ary, 500 West­lake Ave., Daly City. The Fu­neral Mass will be on Tues­day, Sept. 18 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Ce­cilia Church, 2555 - 17th Ave., San Fran­cisco.
