Byrne, Malachy Obituary
Malachy Joseph Byrne "Mack" died suddenly on October 31, 2014 at Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark. He was only 2 years, 7 months old. Arrangements are through the Armitage & Wiggins Funeral Home in Kearny.  His funeral Mass will be on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. in St. Stephens Church, Kearny, and he will be laid to rest at Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington. Following the cemetery service, all are welcome to gather at Manor Park across from their home at the corners of West Bennett Avenue and Hamilton Avenue in Kearny to release balloons in the park that Mack loved so much.
 
Mack is the beloved son of Gary (JCFD) and Alyson (nee Levinson) Byrne. He was the favorite little brother of Zachary and was the grandson of Irene and Joseph LaGreca, the late Gary Byrne (BFD), the late Mary "Mimi" and the late Jay Levinson. Great grandson of Edna "Nana" and the late Augie "Papa" Byrne, he is also survived by his aunts and uncle, Cheryl and Russell de Moose and Michele Matos and his cousins Jessica and Shannon.
 
However brief Mack's life was, he will live on through the courageous and loving decision of his parents to donate his organs. This selfless act has saved the lives of eight little babies. 
 
In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a donation to The New Jersey Sharing Network or Make a Wish Foundation.
