Frank is predeceased by his ten brothers and sisters. He is also predeceased by the love of his life, Audrey, his wife of sixty three years. Frank was a patient and fearless man who was quick with a smile and found the good in even the worst situation. Always the first to lend a hand or offer a good word, he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Frank was a fiercely proud veteran of the Second World War where he saw combat in four countries; France, Belgium, Germany and Austria. As an infantryman in the U.S. Army's 42nd Rainbow Division, Frank fought in the Battle of the Bulge and was one of the first soldiers into the Dachau concentration camp in southern Germany where the horrors he witnessed were silently carried with him for life. It was then that Frank made a pact with God; If he made it home alive he would go to church every Sunday for the rest of his life. Frank Mahon was a genuine member of the Greatest Generation. After the war Frank returned home, met and married his soulmate Audrey. They had two sons, Robert (Mary) and Gary (Nancy).
