Hugh G. Mahany, 79, passed away peacefully with his devoted wife, Jill, by his side following a long illness. Hugh was born September 27, 1942 to the late Daniel J. Mahany and Mary Louise Huggins. Hugh was a native of Tybee Island where he grew up, attending St. Michael’s School and later returned as a full-time resident.

Hugh spent his career in building construction and founded the Mahany Construction Co. in 1985 with his long-time business partner and dear friend, Vincent J. Ferraro, III. Thoughout his many years as a Savannah businessman, Hugh was known to be a “man of his word” and someone who truly values relationships. Outside of family and friends, Hugh was an avid fisherman and passionate about venturing out for both inshore and offshore fishing trips. His sense of humor, good nature, and charismatic personality will be sorely missed by his family and host of many friends. A special thanks to Dr. Dorsey Flanders for his support and always being available to Hugh.

Jill , you & your family are in my prayers. The Mahany family in Newberg, Oregon are close friends. I am one month older than Hugh, so my heart goes out to you knowing that life is short for the present ; to be eternal in the future. We know death was never intended and will be reversed by means of the resurrection. We are so close to conditions being restored to the original paradise intended. We pray, for Christ’s Kingdom government to to come and restore perfect life for all obedient mankind. Isaiah 9:6,7 We have confidence that Hugh will answer when Jesus calls, Job 14:14. May you be comforted. “Enjoy Life Forever” Warm Christian Love and Prayers, Sandy Wirfs

My Dad, Joe Arsenault had many business relationships that over the years developed into respectful friendships. Mr. Mahany was one of many. My Dad thought very highly of Mr. Mahany and I remember the laughter that would always come from Dad’s office when they met. I am praying for all Of his family and friends during this time but I know he and Dad are enjoying each other’s company once again. God Bless.
