Bay Ridge American Legion Member Dies at 93

James Francis ("Jimmy”) Mulcahy, 93, of Bay Ridge, passed away on Jan. 6. He is survived by Janine, his beloved wife of 57 years; his sister Catherine Mulcahy Harley; sister-in-law Mary Cataldo, and all of Brooklyn. 
Numerous nieces and nephews remember him lovingly; “Uncle Fran” was especially cherished by goddaughters Patricia Manning and Peggy Terry. He is predeceased by treasured brother “Buster” of Troy; beloved sister Mary Terry of Long Island; dear sister and brother-in-law Peg and Joe Callaghan of Brooklyn. 
Mulcahy was a decorated WWII Army veteran of the Battle of Luzon, Philippines, and a proud member of Bay Ridge American Legion Post #157, to which donations may be made in his memory. He retired as special agent-in-charge of the U.S. Customs Service’s Hartford office. 
Mulcahy was known for his Irish wit and heart, although some might say more for his mischief-making, according to his family. He will be missed as a loving husband, brother, uncle, and friend, his family said.
