Obituary

Edward Martin Mahon, Jr. 72

August 28, 1947 –  March 21, 2020.

 

 

On Saturday, March 21, 2020, Edward Martin Mahon, Jr., devoted husband and loyal friend to many, passed away peacefully with his loving wife, Maureen, at his side. 

 

Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey to Edward Mahon, Sr. and Georgia Mahon, Edward discovered his love of music at the age of 7 when he received his first acoustic guitar.  By the age of 13, he was playing bass guitar with bands throughout the area.  His passion for music took him on the road with a country band for 2 years, touring throughout the U.S. and Canada.  Fondly referred to as “Mr. Ed” by many of his band mates, he played acoustic guitar and bass guitar for the next 65 years and always found happiness with whomever he played with.  Edward proudly served in the U. S. Army during the Vietnam War from 1966-1969.  Although his time there was a life changing experience, his kind demeanor and positive outlook remained unchanged. He was a member of Local Union #9 Plumbers and Pipefitters for 50 years.  After his retirement in 2003, Ed enjoyed riding his touring bikes and motorcycles, as well as his favorite TREK  bicycle which he rode daily most of his life.  Throughout their marriage, Ed and Maureen enjoyed many cruises with dear friends.  His outgoing personality and love of people

and food made him want to travel. His fondest memories of his retirement were of the times he and Maureen spent traveling the Western U.S. and spending time with many of their friends in Arizona and Nevada. 

 

Edward was preceded in death by his father Edward Mahon, Sr. and mother Georgia Mahon.  He is survived by his adoring wife of 30 years, Maureen, many cherished family members and an abundance of remarkable friends.  A memorial service will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Disabled American Veterans at DAV. org.

    Eddie, you are missed and it's hard to believe that you are gone.

    Ed was a gentleman and a friend to everyone. Loved his positive attitude and his warmth. Will miss playing music with him for sure. Such a gifted musician. I will miss our daily morning coffee visits when in AZ. So grateful to God for bringing Ed and Maureen into our lives.

    Maureen, you are in our thoughts, hearts and prayers.

    Dear Maureen,
    I am terribly sorry for your loss. While I cannot sum him up in words, Ed such a wonderful and generous person. He was always tremendously encouraging of my music as a child, something that undoubtably helped enkindle that love and choice of career later in life. It was always clear that you both love each other so much and modeled what true commitment means to all you encountered... three decades of love that inspired us all . You remain in our prayers.
    Love, Kim, Jim & Sarah

    Ed was a joy to be around and will be missed terribly! He and Maureen turned us onto some great places to eat and some really good Motown music (Human Nature Jukebox). He loved life and it was obvious in his conversations and the smile on his face. I will miss hearing him sing ‘They Call Me the Fireman’. I consider it a privilege to have known such a great man! Maureen, we love you and are here for you!

    I’m so sorry and deeply sadden. I loved “Mr. Ed” (i.e., as we called him here in NJ; and, per Eddie, it’s pronounced “Mista” Ed!). I played drums with Mr. Ed in my first country band in 1977—Billy Wood with Super Cowboy and later, after touring for a couple years, in our band Still Willin’. Of all musicians, he impacted my life in the most wonderful way—he was my greatest teacher, he made me the best musician I could be, and he taught me, showed me, and shared with me how to love life every moment of every day.

    I will miss him so much...until we meet again.

    My love and prayers to Mo, all family, and friends.

    Ed always amazed me by the high class personality he always showed. He was a friend that I always looked forward to being around. He had a way of making you feel happy and always made you laugh. He was the most down to earth person I’ve ever known. His presence will be missed greatly. RIP Ed, a wonderful man and friend-

    I met Ed when I invited Maureen to the inaugural of our newest ship, Celebrity Edge, back on Nov 2018. The dinner table was always full of laughter and we shared some wonderful memories over those next two days. Since then, Maureen and I have kept in touch with her giving me a heads up as to when they were heading to AZ, when they'd be back in FL, and I still remember hearing Ed in the background as he was always a part of our conversation. What a love those two wonderful people shared! Ed - we'll miss having you onboard cruising the high seas with Maureen but your spirit will forever be with us, especially when Maureen hits the karaoke bar. Take care my friend!

    When I first met Ed, he impressed me as such an outgoing, kind and gentle soul. I was so happy that my friend, Maureen, found such a perfect match. In the over thirty years I have known him, he was still that same sweet guy when we saw him in January. We just cannot put into words how much we will miss him, We are so sorry for your loss MoRest in Peace “Teddy Ruxpin”

    Words can't express the sadness and loss of losing a sibling. Ed was not only a wonderful brother, brother-in-law an uncle he was also a great friend. We had many wonderful times growing up together. We also had fun times working together on the job and playing in the band together. I love him and will miss him every day of my life. Love always.

    Ed and Heidi Goodman says:
    Being around Ed would make your heart smile. Every time that he entered a room he brought joy through his welcoming smile, caring for others, and his love of music. Heidi and I will always cherish the times that we were able to spend with Ed and Maureen in Arizona and on our many cruises together.

    Ed gave so much to others without ever asking anything in return. Through his military service, countless years as a plumbing professional, musician and great friend he never asked for anything, except maybe an extra piece of chocolate cake when Maureen was not looking.

    His loss has left a hole in our heart but we cannot help smiling a little at the thought of him telling St. Peter he has the wrong bathroom fixture and playing his guitar while singing with the angels in heaven. God speed my friend.

    Maureen, you will be in our thoughts and prayers. You and Ed made a great team. We will always be there for you.
