Waterford – Michael J. Gully Jr. (“Mickey”), 77, passed away peacefully on December 31, 2019 at Albany Medical Center. Born in Troy on November 6, 1942, he is the son of the late Michael and Bernardine Gully. Mickey was a graduate of LaSalle Institute Class of 1961. He began his career with the United States Postal Service as a part-time mailman in Green Island and worked his way up the ladder to become a well accomplished administrator in Washington D.C. At age 55, he retired and returned back home to be closer to his family. Mickey loved sports and played quarterback for the semi-pro football team the Troy Titans, alongside his beloved brother Jim and many lifelong friends. He was also a coach for Troy Pop Warner football organization for more than 15 years. He was an avid golfer and racquetball player well into his retirement. He could often be found cheering on his beloved New York Rangers and New York Jets. Mickey was a man who enjoyed the finer things in life, including fine wines, great food, sports cars and of course, his family. Mickey is survived by his children, Michael (Patience) Gully and Maria Maloney; his grandchildren and lights of his life, Kevin Maloney and Molly Maloney; his siblings, James (Marge) Gully, Susan Mangione, Bernardine (David) Bochette and Debra (Bob) Nuttall.
