Kip recruited me to join the Arizona Attorney General's Office in October 2004. We had been associates in law enforcement beginning in 1995. He was my boss, my mentor, my friend, and my inspiration for almost nine years. By my count, we had lunch together almost 2,100 times, during which we talked about almost everything under the sun, to include our fascinating and demanding profession as civil racketeering prosecutors(of course), his beloved family, and his and Julie's Oregon beach house (a wonder of personal innovations). We laughed, we argued, and we conspired. After his many successes in bringing major institutional money launderers to their knees, he created the Southwest Border Anti-Money Laundering Alliance, funded by his $96 million settlement with Western Union. While he worked only 14-16 hours a day, seven days a week, his head was in the game 24/7/365. He faced impending death with the same intellect, energy, and resolve with which he faced life. He was strong to the end, offering to me encouraging words, even until the night before he died. I often hear his voice in my head, responding as he did when I would call him on the phone - "MISTER Mahon", as if to ask "And what foolishness are you up to today?" I lost my brother Doug to cancer in May 2012. I lost my brother Kip to cancer in September 2013. The memories of both shall continue to inspire me until I, too, am dust.
