The obituary of Francis P. Maguire:

Francis Paul "Mac" Maguire
Died peacefully on July 23, 2013 in his home surrounded by family. He was born on August 29, 1922 to John and Anne Maguire in Providence, Rhode Island. He served honorably in World War II as part of the greatest generation, landing on Omaha Beach in 1944 with his fellow soldiers in the US Army's 83rd Infantry Division. Following the war, he moved to Indianapolis and married Margaret O'Brien. They were married for forty-six years until her death in 1993. Francis then married Nuala O'Connor and they celebrated their 18th anniversary on May 13, 2013. He had a 40-year career in the electrical contracting field, proudly carrying his union card for IBEW 481. He also worked as an estimator and eventually retired as vice president of Sanborn Electric Company. He was a devoted member of Saint Mark's Catholic Church. He touched many lives through his generous spirit and active involvement, including hosting prayer groups, singing in the choir, Nocturnal Adoration, Christ Renews His Parish, and Saint Vincent DePaul. Mac could do it all: chef, golfer, mechanic, crossword puzzle expert, voracious reader, and engineer. He is survived by his wife, Nuala; his children, Joseph (Rita) Maguire, James Maguire, and Elaine (Randy) Powers; stepchildren, Emer (Mike) O'Connor-Keller, Cormac (Jen) O'Connor, Cathal (Susie) O'Connor, Donal (Michelle) O'Connor; twenty grandchildren; and ten great-grandchildren. Visitation will be held at Saint Mark Catholic Church, 535 E. Edgewood Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46227, on Thursday, July 25 from 3-8 p.m. and Friday, July 26 from 9:30-11 a.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Saint Mark Church on Friday, July 26 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Saint Mark Catholic Church or The Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Online condolences can be shared with the family at orileyfuneralhome.com.
