Christopher J. Mahoney
BALTIMORE, MD- Christopher J. Mahoney, 46, died suddenly at home on Sunday, January 19.

He was survived by his mother and stepfather, Sheila and Paul Fennessey, of Ft. Lauderdale, FL and West Dover, VT, a brother, Kevin M. Mahoney, of Boston, MA, and many cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Mr. Mahoney was born in Boston, and grew up in Quincy, MA, before moving to Boston. He was a graduate of Quincy High School and Emerson College. In his career, he became a reporter for the Quincy Sun and the Patriot Ledger. He worked for over 14 years, many as an editor, at the Boston Business Journal and in 2012 was promoted to managing editor of the Baltimore Business Journal.

In addition to working for the American City Business Journals, Mr. Mahoney taught journalism at Emerson College. Journalism was his vocation. His love of words prompted his “Haiku Tuesdays” for all his Facebook friends. They could look forward to Tuesdays and a tongue in cheek haiku from him that was hard to match.

As journalism was Mr. Mahoney’s vocation, music was his passion. He was a member of the Boston Gay Men’s Choir; sang in the choir of his church, the Old South Church of Boston, and participated in many little theater groups. He was a devout Christian who was dedicated to reaching out to the less fortunate. He served at the Old South Church feeding the homeless and went to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to build and repair homes with other members of his church.

Memorial services for Mr. Mahoney will be held at the Old South Church, 645 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, on Saturday, April 5, at 1 pm.
