Myles G. Mooney was born January 8, 1947 in Highland Park, IL and passed away from sudden cardiac arrest on July 21, 2021.
Myles graduated from Highland Park High School and attended the University of Arizona where he graduated with a BS in Production Management in 1969. He was hired by Texas Instruments out of college and soon moved into their accounting department in Dallas, TX. Myles worked in various accounting and finance departments at Texas Instruments for 36 years. He was respected at TI for the knowledge he brought to his team but was well known for his leaning towers of paperwork.
He met his wife, Marlena (Martie), at the University of Arizona. Myles and Martie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2019. They have 2 children and 6 grandchildren. After retirement, they made it their goal to travel someplace interesting every year together. Some of their favorite trips were to Egypt, Ireland and Iceland, the Mediterranean, the Baltic, and a pilgrimage to France with their church group. They especially enjoyed traveling with their children and grandchildren to Maui and Colorado.
Myles had many interests that included listening to all types of music from country to New Age (with speakers blaring), woodworking, fishing, golf, and bowling in a weekly league. He played golf in the Senior League at Sherrill Park. Myles was a longtime fan of University of Arizona sports and a convert to supporting Texas A&M athletics. Myles always looked forward to attending his grandchildren's sports and activities, much as he did with his children when they were younger. He was known for his keen sense of humor that made life enjoyable.
Surviving are his wife Marlena (Martie) and two children Drew (Erica) Mooney and Karen (Tully) Wyatt. He has six grandchildren: Evan and Dylan Mooney; Claire, Thomas, Annie, and Cecilia Wyatt. Papa was their hero. Also surviving are his sister Gwen Mooney, father-in-law Leo (Olga) Elbert, sister-in-law Mariann (Jim) Wolf, brother-in-law Michael (Shirley) Elbert, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Beverly Mooney and James Mooney, and mother-in-law Helen Elbert.
A Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, July 30th at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph's Catholic Church at 600 S. Jupiter Rd, Richardson, TX 75081.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Myles' name to St. Joseph's Catholic Church.
