Roy Theodore Mulcahy (90), of Vestal passed peacefully into the arms of God on May 19, 2022 with his family at his side. Roy was born in 1932 in Jersey City, NJ to William and Henrietta (Scott) Mulcahy and raised in the historic Mulcahy farmhouse (circa 1869) in the Greenville section of Jersey City. As a young man, Roy enlisted in the Navy as a maritime radio operator during the Korean War, serving from 1952 to 1956. Following his service, he graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 1961 before beginning a long and distinguished career with IBM Endicott, where he was awarded a patent in 1996. Roy is predeceased by his parents, a brother, Albert Mulcahy, and infant daughter Renee'. He is survived by the love of his life, Marlene Mulcahy (Buffum), sister, Joan Zanotti, and his children, Roy Mulcahy (Brooke Keil), Eileen Mulcahy-LaChance (Tim), Daniel Mulcahy (Staci), Colleen Eldred (Jamie), Maureen Warren (Jeff), Christine Strawsky (Michael), 17 grandchildren, and many special in-laws, family, and friends. Roy was an active member and past president of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Knights of Columbus, and Our Lady of Sorrows Church. He found great joy in reading books about World War II, an event that cemented his life-long patriotism. He loved camping, traveling, golfing, reciting the rosary, and cheering on his beloved Red Sox. "...until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand."
