PORTLAND — Michael J. “Muggy” Molloy, 60, of Harrison died Wednesday morning, May 16, at Maine Medical Center in Portland.

He was born June 9, 1957, in Concord, Mass., a son of William and Christine (Lampinen) Molloy. He graduated from Maynard High School in 1975 and went on to graduate from Mitchell College in New London, Conn.

After a short time at Northeastern University and taking a “long-cut” to the West, where he was going to continue his education, Mike took a job at what was the Cracked Platter in Harrison in 1977 as a breakfast cook. Twelve years later, he took ownership with the family of the Caswell House, running the restaurant on the Main Street of Harrison until November 2014.

On Oct. 14, 2006, Mike married Kathleen Koss and she worked alongside him at the restaurant.

He enjoyed all sports, taking particular interest in New England sports teams. He was a former member of the United Bikers of Maine, the Harrison Bocce League and at one time served on the Harrison Planning Board. He also enjoyed riding his motorcycle, taking his granddaughter Karlie swimming and annual vacation trips to Gloucester, Mass.

He is survived by his mother, Christine Molloy, of Waterford; his wife, Kathy, of Harrison; daughters Bridgette Nadeau of Norway, Marcie Bryant and her husband, Shayne, of Windham and Ashley Koss of Windham; grandchildren Karlie Nadeau, Nola Bryant and Braycen Freese; a sister, Maureen Andreou, and her husband, George, of Grovetown, Ga.; two nephews, a niece and two grandnieces.

He was predeceased by his father, Bill, and a beloved dog, Himshe.
