Paul Hynes Molloy Jr.

On Friday, August 9th, 2019, Paul H. Molloy, beloved partner, husband and father of one daughter, passed away at the age of 63 at his home in New Ipswich, NH.  Paul was born in Boston, MA on September 22, 1955 to Ann and Paul H. Molloy Sr. He was raised in Newtonville, Newton, MA.  He attended college studying Business and engineering. In 1973 he started his career at Data Instruments and proceeded to Raytheon where he worked as a Senior production engineer. He also owned his own Programing and systems design company. He then began a new career in 1999 opening his own business, The New England Post Rider, a business that provided history to customers in the form of documents and postage stamps.  This opened the door to his new passion: working as an Antiques Dealer and Manager of 101A Antiques and Collectible center, located in Amherst, New Hampshire.  Paul enjoyed all aspects of history and loved the American Revolutionary War. He lived with his partner Vanessa and was enjoying renovating their antique 1776 Cape home. He was known for his quick wit, intelligence, kindness and professionalism.

He is survived by his Mother Ann Molloy of Lancaster, PA, long term partner Vanessa Jelley-Gohl of New Ipswich, NH, his daughter Kimberly, son-in-law John Riel and three grandchildren; Tyler, Ryan and Marissa Riel of Ashby, MA. He also leaves behind his brother Kevin Molloy, sister-in-law Lisa and their son Kyle of Lancaster PA., his sister Karen Molloy of Somerville , MA., a niece Brennyn Molloy of Virginia and Lucas Molloy of Vermont and his former wife Mary (Vito) Molloy. Besides his father Paul Molloy Senior, he was predeceased by his brother Dennis Molloy.
