MAHON--Arthur L. Age 58, passed away on Friday, November 6 at his home in Boynton Beach, FL. Art is survived by his loving family, his father, Arthur J. Mahon, his sisters, Maura, Madonna and Nancy, his sister-in-law Susan Trerotola, his niece and nephew, Emelia and Chris and many loving cousins from the Mahon, Slote, Thanhauser, O'Leary, Fitzpatrick and Burris families and his Uncle Neil Mahon and Aunt Nula Thanhauser. Art's mother, Myra Murphy Mahon, predeceased him and he now joins her in Eternal Life. Art will be sadly missed by all of those who were blessed to know and love him. He was an enormously generous, kind, gentle, caring and witty person. Born on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1961, Art loved and celebrated every Holiday, particularly Christmas, by giving generously to others. He attended school and grew up in Pleasantville, NY, and then later in Chappaqua, NY, when his family moved there. Art had a special capacity for engaging with and helping people. Art had a career as a retail manager and officer at several companies in Miami Beach and Port St. Lucie, FL including Macy's and Brooks Brothers where he oversaw several departments. Later in his career, while living in Madison, CT, Art dedicated his life to not-for-profit organizations. Art was a sympathetic listener with a warm wit. Art loved spending time with his family, warm weather, the sun and the beach. As a child, he had spent summers with his family and Burris cousins at the beach in Madison, CT. When he retired he moved to Ocean Ridge and then Boynton Beach, FL to be closer to his family. Art was a life-long reader and book lover. Art loved and cared for animals throughout his life. He leaves his cherished shih-poo, Nyla. The Mahon Family requests that well-wishers make donations to their local animal rescue center or ASPCA. Funeral services are private. A memorial will be held at a later date. Details will be posted on

I was startled to read of Art's too early death. He was a baby sitter for our children, Andrew and Fiona, when we all lived in Chappaqua. He was a great baby sitter and his only request for snacks was Diet Soda. I shall show the Obituary to Andrew and Fiona, too. I also have good memories of Myra with whom I shared many lunches at Jonathan's in Pleasantville. My deepest condolences to you all - Art was a very special person. Valerie Wallace

Blessed to be your cousin.
Your kind and gentle nature gave such evidence of your big heart. Adored you and your quick wit. In the middle of a heartfelt conversation, you would come up with one line (under your breath) and have the whole room doubled over in laughter.
Our loss is heaven’s gain, and just in time to wish Aunt TC a Happy Birthday in heaven.
Love always,
Debbie Fitzpatrick
