Sean Daniel McMahon - Obituary


ean Daniel McMahon, 59, departed from this Earth on Valentine’s Day. He was born on September 3, 1963, in Greenwich Village, NY and was adopted by loving Irish Catholic parents, John and Alice McMahon, and was extremely proud of his Irish heritage. He was the first of their six sons, Patrick, Brendan, Mathew, Andrew, and Terrence “TJ” McMahon. The McMahons moved to Riva, MD when Sean was 7 years old- this would become his old stomping grounds, and a place he would remain deeply attached to throughout his life. In his early years, Sean spent much of his time devoted to sports like wrestling, lacrosse, and weightlifting. Sean loved spending time on the Chesapeake Bay- metal detecting, canoeing, helping others, tinkering with pocket watches, or enjoying his friends and family with a good party to pass the time. He loved animals (especially his dog Bella, his cats and birds, and of course ducks) and nature. Sean was passionate about music, playing guitar, and collecting classic rock records and CDs. He loved collecting antiques and hunting for treasure anywhere he went. Sean’s wit and humor were unique and he enjoyed having a great laugh. He served as a CPA for over 30 years with the Federal Government and recently retired from the Department of Education. Sean was proudly Irish Catholic and his love for Jesus and the Holy Mother, Mary was always on his mind. St. Jude, the Patron Saint of Hopeless Causes was his favorite saint to call upon. In the summer of 1988, Sean met Karen at a house party in his family’s home. From the moment she tackled him to the ground, the two became inseparable. They got married in 1993 and welcomed Margaret and Finn into the world a few years later. At his core, Sean was a family man. He loved his children, his brothers, his wife, and his friends with all of his heart and soul, even though he sometimes had a tough time expressing it. The people in his life were the most important thing to him, and he always saw the good in people- even in the hardest of circumstances. Sean is survived by his wife, Karen McMahon and his children, Margaret and Fionnbar McMahon. Mass of the Resurrection will be offered on Friday, February 24 at 10:30 am at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, 620 N. Bestgate Rd., Annapolis, MD.
