Upon graduation, she returned to the U.S. where she and her mother settled in New Rochelle, NY. Marion worked in New York City at Bankers Trust Company and later, The Catholic News. In 1946, she married her beloved husband, Richard S. Mangan.

Thomas A. Dent was born, brought up, educated, and lived virtually all his life in New York City. He married to Virginia, better known as “Mike”, he was the father of three: Judith Ann, Marie Elaine Scofield and Marc Thomas Dent; stepfather of one, Frank Koupash, and grandfather of eight: Tim, Sean, and Stephanie Scofield, and Ryan, Matthew, Trevor, Julia, and Eliza Dent.

A child during the Depression, he worked and helped his mother care for and raise his two younger brothers, Darby & Patrick, ten and eleven years his junior.  Tom worked his way through Queens College doing everything from selling pencils to manning the desk at the library.

In 1942, degree in hand he enlisted in the Navy.  A tall, strong athlete he had little issue obtaining a commission as an officer.  During World War II, Tom was first mate of PT Boat 550 (Ron 28) and later skipper of PT Boat 350 (Ron 25) in the Pacific Theater.  At the Solomon Islands he was wounded by shrapnel from a Japanese bomb, for which he received the Purple Heart.  In the Philippines, he directed the rescue of 85 sailors from a PT Boat tender that had been struck by a Japanese Kamikaze bomber plane.  For this, he received the Navy & Marine Corps Medal.  Of the rescue, he once said “If I did nothing else during the war, that action made all the rest worth it.”

The last-surviving Charter Member of the Flushing Rotary Club, formed in 1953, Tom served as its first President in 1955-56.  In 1976-77 he was Governor of Rotary District 7250, overseeing 43 Rotary Clubs in Queens, Brooklyn and Nassau.  Tom was named a Paul Harris Fellow in 1978.  Tom and “Mike” have attended over 25 Rotary International Conferences on four continents and in ten countries and in nine of the United States.
An attorney at law for over 61 years, Tom was a partner in Dent & Witschieben in Garden City, NY.  He was a member of the Queens County Bar Association and the Bar Association of Nassau County, and was admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, the U.S. District Courts of the Eastern District of New York and the Southern District of New York. As an Adjunct Associate Professor, Tom taught law at Queens College for 26 years. He was a Queens College graduate, class of 1942, and held Juris Doctor and Master of Law degrees from Brooklyn Law School. Tom served as president of the Queens College Alumni Association.

Epitomizing the Rotary Motto: “Service Above Self”, he was a man of service his whole life.  In 1954 Tom was the Democratic candidate for Congress from the eastern Queens 4th Congressional District, after winning a four-candidate primary.  In the election, alas, he gave the 14-year incumbent the closest race of that Congressman’s career …almost but not quite.

With others, Tom founded the Child Guidance Center of Northeast Queens in 1959. He Served as its first President for three years. The Center provided low-cost or no-cost psychiatric services to children of the area and later became a unit of the Queens Child Guidance Center.

An aspirant golfer, Tom had been a member of the North Hills Country Club for over 35 years. With others, he helped create the Udalls Cove Preservation Committee and served as its Vice President and on its Board of Directors.  Tom was actively involved in Peter Tare, a PT Boat officer’s organization until it disbanded in 2007.
Peter Damian Mooney
Born April 2nd, 1948 -
Died January 12th, 2017

Peter is survived by his wife of 40 years, Robin Gail, whom he loved deeply and remained dedicated to until the last moment of his life.
His sons Damien Thomas Mooney (wife - Carolyn), Brian Patrick Mooney, and his daughter Jennifer Ann Mooney Etringer (husband - Matthew), along with two grandsons, Chase Etringer and Dylan Collins bear his loss with dignity. He is survived by his eight siblings: Paulette, Andra, Josephine, Philip, Claire, James, Regina, and Jeanette. Together with their spouses and children, the family members all share in the deep sadness his death has caused.

Peter was a proud and patriotic American. He expressed his love 
for his parents and in-laws by tenderly caring for them,
and was a great brother
and a faithful friend to many. He had a deep sense of honor, loyalty,
and duty which he passed down to family members.

He was a life-long nature lover and explored his world with joy. A favorite saying of his was, "Time spent in the woods is always time well spent.” He studied local habitats, often discovering long lost histories and artifacts such as arrowheads in Alley Pond Park and fossils along the coasts and rivers of Florida. Many of his precious finds were donated to local historical societies, environmental centers, and schools.

He leaves his family and friends with a greater appreciation for the Earth and its many wonderful gifts, especially the birds of the sky. Peter will be remembered in the soaring wings of the Red Tailed Hawk and the wise eyes of the Great Horned Owl. He will remain forever in our hearts. 

Peter’s wake will be held at Gleason’s Funeral Home, 10-25 150th Street, Whitestone, New York, on Thursday January 26th (2pm-5pm) and (7pm-10pm) and the funeral mass at St. Luke Church in Whitestone on Friday, January 27th at 10:15AM.
