Obituary for William H. "Bill" Mahon

February 4, 2018


William H. "Bill" Mahon passed away at the age of 87 on Super Bowl Sunday, February 4, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. Bill was born on his mother's birthday in Roxborough PA. He is survived by his children, Bill (Trish), Rachael Hicks (Craig), Teresa Welsh (Mark), and Raymond (Debbie). He was the proud grandfather of Daniel (1984-2005) and will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren, Billy (Lindsay), Joshua (Lindsay), Jordan (Stephen), Billy (Stephanie), Amber (Matt), Alyssa (Michael), Mark and Joel (Hanna) and his great grandchildren, Patrick, Dillon, Solomon, and Brianna. Bill was one of six brothers and is survived by his younger brother Don and many extended family members. He served during the Korean War and was stationed on the Island of Malta where he met the love of his life, Jessie (nee Ellul) (1936-2013). He retired as a delivery driver of 30 years for Levins. Being led by God, he ministered in prisons and helped so many to receive The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For those who met Bill, you knew he was kind, loving and easy to talk with. He was prompt and organized with everything that he did in life and started everyday with scripture from the bible. He was quick to lend a hand and constantly gave to the needy; he was the epitome of doing good unto others. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks for all the medical assistance from the many doctors and services in helping to make his journey home peaceful.
