Obituary for Donald L. Mahoney

Mahoney, Donald Leo Age 93

Donald Leo Mahoney, 93, who served as a Representative of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers for decades, one of North America’s largest trade unions, died of cancer on August 31.

He was born to parents William and Lillian Mahoney, on July 7, 1928, in Chicago, Illinois. Don graduated from Oak Park River Forest High School. After the tragic work-related loss of his father at an early age, Don dedicated the rest of his life to helping families through his skills as a union organizer.

Don, a south side Irishman, is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Deloris, and preceded in death by his first wife, Irene (who died in 1984), mother to his daughters Barbara (Glen) Rainey Terry, and Colleen (Nick) Fera, and their sons, his proud grandsons, Anthony, Aidan, & Dominic. Don is also survived by his brother Gene (late Jeanie) and predeceased by his brother William (Dolores), and sister Marylyn. Don was beloved by his many cousins, nieces, and nephews in his family. Don was also a friend and mentor to so many more.

Don spent almost seven decades in service to the IBEW, including more than twenty years on the pension and retirement committees after his own retirement in 1993. His lifelong passion was to serve others by fairly representing their interests for better working conditions, pay and benefits. As an international Representative, he organized tens of thousands of telephone and electrical workers from the early 1970’s, to the mid 1990’s. He dedicated his life to the IBEW.
