MICHAEL THOMAS MCDONOUGH MANHATTAN - Michael "Mike" Thomas McDonough, 82, beloved husband of Kathleen M. Flaherty, passed away on Thursday, July 14, 2022, in Latham.

Mike was raised in Cambria Heights, Queens and had many fond memories and lasting friendships from his hometown. He graduated from Andrew Jackson High School.

Mike was also a NYC Firefighter and later ran his own accounting business. He enjoyed tennis, horseracing, cars, traveling, and games of chess and backgammon.
