Martin T. Muldowney, 76 of Plains Township, passed away peacefully Thursday morning, April 15, 2021 at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore.

Born in Wilkes-Barre, he was the son of the late Martin and Regina (Hannon) Muldowney.

Marty was a graduate of James M. Coughlin High School, Wilkes-Barre, Class of 1962 and was a United States Coast Guard Veteran of the Vietnam War. He was proud of being one of the last Lighthouse Keepers, serving as an Engineman aboard Ship John Shoal Lighthouse Station on the Delaware Bay. He also served with two search and rescue units in Delaware and New Jersey. Upon his honorable discharge from the United States Coast Guard in 1967, Marty served a 5 year apprenticeship with Pipefitters Local 147, Wilkes-Barre, and later with Local 524 Scranton, following their merger. He was a proud pipefitter for over 40 years, until his retirement.

He was a member of St. Dominic’s Church, Parsons, the Delaware Bay Lighthouse Keepers Association, Lewes, Delaware, the Plains American Legion, Joseph E. Conlon, Post 558, and the Polish American Veterans, Plains.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 42 years, the former Judith A. Rohme on February 20, 2010, and twin children Mary and Marty Muldowney.

Surviving are twin sons Timothy Muldowney, Wilkes-Barre and Monsignor Thomas Muldowney, Scranton, and son Michael Muldowney and his wife Lauren, Mountain Top, granddaughter Isabella Muldowney, sisters Joan Mack, and Carol Pericci and her husband Joseph, all of Hanover Township, nieces and nephews.

Marty’s family will be forever grateful for the compassionate and loving care provided by the nurses and staff of the Cardiovascular ICU at the Wilkes-Barre General Hospital and Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by his son, Monsignor Thomas M.
