MAHONEY, Sr., John Frederick

John Frederick Mahoney, Sr. (September 30, 1939 to May 23, 2014) Born in Marion, IN. Lived in Ft. Myers and West Palm Beach, FL. Resided with wife Vivian Madison-Mahoney in Gatlinburg, TN since 1995. John was the precious husband of Vivian, 19 years (September 1st) and friend of 40 years. Most loving, caring and devoted father to sons John "Jay" Mahoney, Jr. and Matthew Blake Mahoney. He is a treasured step "dad" to Darlene and Lori Worrell and Dawn Madison and "Grampa" to Ashley Worrell and her two little children. Graduated from Fort Myers, FL High School (1958), US NAVY 1962, USS Rushmore SD-14 and Licensed Funeral Director for 35 years including owning his own business in Palm Beach County, Director of Funeral Homes and as a Deputy Coroner in Modesto, CA. John was a man of integrity and honesty. His word was his bond. He looked at the world with optimism and greeted people as a friend with an open hand and his infectious smile. He had a great sense of humor, quick to compliment and hesitant to criticize or judge. John was never idle and lived life to its fullest and considered he had met most of his dreams and goals. John made a memorable impression on all those he encountered as further evidenced by the thousands of emails, Facebook comments, cards, letters, phone calls and visitors he received along with his wife Vivian who almost lost her life in this accident on May 14th as they were hit by an oncoming horse, loose from a local ranch. We can only pray that John "knows" of the outpouring of nationwide love, honor and prayers he's been receiving daily. A Memorial / Birthday Celebration of his Life will be held on September 30th at the Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg, TN 3:00PM to 7:00PM. RSVP to [email protected] or call 865-436-3573.
