Memorial services will be held in Albuquerque, N.M., this weekend for John J. Mulhern, 75, a Buffalo native and retired FBI agent.
Mulhern died Thursday (March 30, 1995) after a long illness. He has lived in Albuquerque since retiring from the FBI in the late 1970s.
The son of Irish immigrant parents on Buffalo's West Side, he graduated from the old Annunciation High School, Canisius College and Fordham University Law School. He spent some time practicing law before joining the FBI in the 1940s.
During his approximately 30 years in the FBI, he served in the Buffalo, New York City, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Albuquerque offices.
"My brother was a great student. Even in his '70s, he was taking courses in Italian at New Mexico University, just because he loved to learn," said his brother, Paul E. of Buffalo.
Survivors also include his wife, the former Jean Bacigalupo of Albuquerque; three daughters, Mary Jean of St. Paul, Ann Shields of St. Paul and Patricia McClannahan of Albuquerque; four sons, Brian and John, both of St. Paul, and Terence and Thomas of Chicago; and 12 grandchildren.
