Patrick Mahon Death, Obituary – The family of Patrick Mahon wishes to convey their deepest condolences to Patrick’s friends and loved ones as they share the news of his untimely departure on Wednesday, December 21, 2022. Pat passed away at home in Wasa. Pat and Cherry have called the town of Wasa home for the past 27 years. During that time, they have created countless memories with their children and grandchildren there, including a wedding, numerous dinners, barbecues, campfires, and camping trips. Pat is survived by his wife Cherry, his eldest daughter Tammy, and his youngest daughter Tricia.
He is also survived by his brother David, sisters Louise, Shirley, Kathy, and Linda, as well as a large number of his nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Pat and Cherry first crossed paths in 1968, became engaged the following year, and then tied the knot on January 16, 1971. 1971 marked the arrival of the family’s first son, Douglas, and 1972 saw the birth of the family’s second oldest son, Dwayne. After that, in 1975, came Tammy, who was the middle child, and then Tricia, who was the baby of the family, in 1979. The majority of the children were brought up here here in Cranbrook.
They relocated to Alberta in the middle of the 1980s, and it turned out to be an excellent decision for Pat’s career after they got there. He worked as a CFI, did bushwork, operated a tye mill, was under contract with Fort Steele Train for five years, and was an owner of water trucks over the course of his life. He worked on the Old Man River Dam from the very beginning to the very end. He worked hard no matter what job he had because he enjoyed his work so much. When he began working in the aggregates industry at the dam and later at LaFarge in the aggregates, washplant, crusher, and machining departments, he realized that he had discovered his calling and that he was operating at his peak performance.
He worked his way up from the bottom in a relatively short period of time to become the superintendent, and he ultimately became an expert in all aspects of the aggregates industry, including managing and maintaining it. He had the ability to mend practically everything, as well as a lot of patience, which was the complete opposite of me. He was very passionate about his work and won a great deal of respect from many higher-ups in firms that were comparable to his own. These higher-ups asked him for advise on fixing, or setting up plants, or fixing a problem with a machine, or setting up a plant. Even to the point where we decided to hire him only for his consultancy services.
