In Memory of Mark F. Mahoney

Mark F. Mahoney, ASA 1990, loving husband, devoted father, and endearing friend entered eternal life on September 17, 2018 ending his courageous battle with renal cancer.  His spirit is carried on by his wife Laquetta of almost 35 years, son Matthew & his wife Danielle, and daughter Meghan.  Mark positively affected an extended group of family and friends from every walk of life. We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Mark during his 58 years, among them: Always have compassion for others, place others needs before your own, always build people up, and speak well of everyone you meet.  Mark lived his life every day in companionship and concern for all he encountered.

Mark was a graduate of Georgia State University and spent a very successful Actuarial and Sales & Marketing career in the insurance industry (Southern Farm Bureau Life, CalFarm, Transamerica, Scottish Re, Canada Life and General Re) which allowed their family to build friendships in Jackson, MS / Folsom, CA / Charlotte, NC / Carolina Beach, NC. 

Of all the successes Mark enjoyed in his lifetime, the greatest among them was being the loving husband to Laquetta and devoted father to Matthew and Meghan.  He also found joy in traveling, living at the beach and thoroughly enjoyed meeting people and encouraging others through his positive attitude.  

A celebration of life was held in Mark’s memory on Saturday September 22, 2018 at Lake Norman, North Carolina.  Thanks to everyone for all of your prayers, friendship, and support throughout this journey.  We are forever grateful for your compassion and kindness.
