Mark Mahan

Mark Charles Mahan, born October 23, 1947, lost his battle with long term COVID on September 2, 2022.
Mark was born and spent his early years in Fort Worth, Texas before his family moved to Des Moines, Iowa. After graduating from Roosevelt High School where he played football , he moved back to north Texas. He continued playing at East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas and briefly at North Texas State University in Denton, Texas from which he graduated. Mark always considered himself an athlete and worked at staying in shape.

Mark was a lifelong bachelor, Presbyterian and Democrat. He had many friends and close calls with marriage along the way. Mark was the epitome of "hail fellow well met." He was known for his willingness to talk with anybody about anything without bringing politics into it unless it was necessary. Now, this is not to say that Mark was exactly easy going as he was ready for a political debate at any time with anyone. He definitely had blue blood in his veins. Mark had an undying belief in the goodness of people and a government that served the people, not corporations. Mark was looking forward to working in the mid-term elections in Tarrant County, when his health improved, which unfortunately never happened. Mark was involved as a paid worker and consultant for many political candidates over the years. His first campaign was for Walt Parker, a Democratic state senator from Denton, in the 1970s.
Mark always took time to enjoy himself at numerous bars around Ft. Worth. He particularly enjoyed the many British bars around town. The Ye Olde Bull and Bush was a favorite during the last 15 years or so. His friends and family had his wake at the Bull and Bush on Sunday afternoon, September 4.

Mark was preceded in death by his parents Milo and Virginia Mahan. Mark is survived by his brother, Milo J Mahan II and wife Tammy of Cleburne, Tx and his nephews Matthew Mahan of New York, NY and Milo Mahan III of Lubbock, Texas. He will be missed by countless friends as well.
