It is with great sadness that the family of Thomas Noel Mulhern announces his passing on Saturday, January 16th, 2021 at the age of 58 after courageously battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Tom was born December 25th, 1962 in Phoenix and graduated from West High School. Tom worked at Alcoa for over 30 years in the Chandler area. He is survived by the love of his life,
his wife, Lilibeth Verunque Mulhern who took the very best care of him and his precious daughter Ashley Nicole. He is also survived by his mother Izola Jean Mulhern (94) of Phoenix and his siblings Mike and Maureen Mulhern, Katherine Butler, Tina, and Richard Janson, Janice Rigstad, Georgia Mulhern, Mary Mulhern, Frederick Mulhern, Edward Mulhern, and 21 nieces and
nephews who all adored him! His entire family is blessed to have all the wonderful memories they shared with him. Tom was preceded in death by his father Charles Phillip Mulhern, his sisters, Teresa Mulhern, Carol Ohm, Christi Endres, and his brother Charles Mulhern.
Tom was such a kind, intelligent man who had the biggest, most generous heart. He had the most memorable laugh and would light up any room he entered. He had a passion for rebuilding Jeeps, specifically CJ-7’s. He loved traveling, the outdoors, camping with family, playing cards with his family, playing golf, and was a big New York Giants fan. Tom loved many things but what he held dear to his heart most was spending time with his family. Private services will be held at St. Andrew’s Apostolic Catholic Church in Chandler, AZ for family and close friends. In lieu of flowers please send donations to The ALS Association Arizona Chapter at 360 East Coronado Road, Suite 140, Phoenix, AZ 85004 that will aid in finding a cure for this pernicious disease.
~A life well lived is a precious gift, of hope and strength and grace from someone who has made our world a brighter, better place. A life well-lived is a legacy of joy and pride and pleasure. Living, lasting memories that all of our grateful hearts will treasure. This was our Thomas Noel.
