A Penrith father has died weeks after a tragic accident in Bali.

Kevin Malligan leaves behind a heavily pregnant wife and young daughter.

The 24-year-old was the passenger on a scooter involved in a crash in Bali on December 29 and suffered head and neck injuries.

He underwent surgery in Bali before being flown back to Sydney where has been under treatment of doctors at Nepean Hospital.

Mid-way through last week he was confirmed as brain dead and has since passed away.

“We had to go through a traumatic time that no wife, father, mother, dad and family should have to go through,” his family said on a Go Fund Me page set up to help the family.

“Leah and his dad made the beautiful generous choice to donate his internal organs. We hope that all these organs are going to help and save as many people as possible to live a healthier life for themselves.

The toughest goodbye.

“We are forever grateful for so much support over these last two weeks from family, friends, work colleagues, community and complete strangers.

“Leah is overwhelmed by the support to bring Kevin back home and to have the opportunity to farewell her beloved husband and father to Ivy and her soon to be bub – due early February 2024.”

Malligan is a former student at McCarthy Catholic College.

In an emotional post on social media, Leah Malligan said she would forever miss her beloved husband.

“I miss you already, you’ve touched so many lives but mostly mine. You fought so hard and I will forever love you,” she said.

“I promise I will forever give our girls everything and they will always know how much their daddy loved them.”
