John Michael Mahon (50)

Carmi, Illinois
Birth: March 27, 1971
Death: December 6, 2021

John Michael Mahon, 50, of Carmi, Illinois, passed away suddenly on December 6, 2021, at his home. He was born March 27, 1971, the son of Jack and Marcy (Pavlick) Mahon. He married Lori Pierson on May 23, 2008, and she survives.

John had a wonderful sense of humor and loved life so very much, especially time spent visiting and laughing with friends and family. He enjoyed vacationing at Panama City Beach, Florida, riding the waves, eating seafood and relaxing with loved ones.

He drove a semi-truck for 25 years, but his passion was working on old cars. Chevys were his life, and he was happiest in the garage with a cold PBR, his brother, Bill, and his dear friend, Scott Prince, who preceded him in death four years ago.

John is survived by his wife, Lori; children Dylan Mahon and Haley Cason; parents, Jack and Marcy Mahon; brother Bill (Sonya) Mahon; niece Emily Mahon; nephew Ethan Mahon; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Charlie and Lana Pierson; and his beloved little dog, Annie, whom he cherished.

John was so loved and will be missed by his family and friends immensely, but they know his best friend, Scott, is waiting at the gates of heaven so they can burn rubber together on the streets of gold.

John’s remains were cremated and a private gathering of family and friends will be at a later date.

Cook Funeral Chapel in Carmi is honored in serving John’s family.

Visitation: No Visitation
Service: Private gathering of family and friends at at later date.
