Denis Boyd Mahon

Denis Boyd Mahon, (Known by Many, Remembered by Few – His favourite quote!) of Blind Bay, B.C., and a former long time resident of Saskatoon, SK. died at 76 years of age on the 27th of August, 2013. Cause of death was complications from COPD and Lung Cancer. He battled his illness with strength, courage and grace. Denis was a kind self-less and caring individual who always put others before him. He will be missed by many of his dear friends. Denis’ passions in life were family, friends, travelling, reading, enjoying nature on the shores of the Shuswap Lake and of course, his Saskatchewan Roughriders!. Denis is survived by his partner, Lyn Butcher. He also leaves his son Stephen (Debbie) of Cloverdale, B.C., daughter Sheila Bricker (Wade) of Saskatoon, four Grandchildren Tyler (Lori) Mahon, Jessica (Craig) Pritchard, Alexandra and Juliette Bricker and three Great Grandchildren Hannah and Robyn Mahon and Vanessa Pritchard. His family wishes to thank the Salmon Arm Community Care Program, nurses and aides for their incredible support during Denis’ illness. Because of their assistance he was able to remain at home until his passing. Many thanks also go to Dr. M. Lourens and Dr. R.A. Currie for their compassionate ongoing care. As per Denis’ request, there will be no funeral service. Donations in lieu of flowers can be sent to a charity of one’s choice.
