Joe Mulderig

April 9, 2017

Joseph Mulderig, 82, of Camillus, passed away peacefully on a beautiful spring day. He was a lifetime resident of the Syracuse area. Joe served as a police officer with the Syracuse Police Department for 20 years before retiring in 1977. He also worked for Prudential Insurance and St. Joseph's Hospital as an assistant security director. He was known as "Joe Brown" during his time as a police officer and was an active member of the Police Benevolent Association. Joe was very proud of his Irish heritage but his real pride and joy was the West Genesee Wildcat Marching Band and watching his children and grandchild perform. He was very active in fundraising and was an original "Pit Dad." 

Joe was predeceased by his sister, Eleanor Mulderig; and brothers, George and Harold. 

Surviving are his wife of 64 years, the former Joan Ward; daughters, Katherine (Tom) Mulderig, Mary Clare (Kevin) Mulderig and Kelly Mulderig; sons, Patrick (Francine) and Martin (Maureen); grandchildren, Jacob and Julie Mulderig, Erin Downs, Sean and BJ Ryan, Clare Bellucci, Jenna Tersigni, Robert Schick and Nicholas Mulderig; great-grandchildren, Blake, Liam, Declan and Shae; and special loved ones, Carol Goldman and Sue Smith.

There will be no calling hours. A funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday, April 22 at 11 a.m. in Holy Family Church. Burial will be private.

Joe's family asks that instead of sending flowers, contributions be made to the West Genesee Wildcat Marching Band.

Known on the street as "Joe Brown", Joe was a legendary nacotics investigator back in the 70's.
