Martin D. McMahon, 93, peacefully passed away Saturday, October 23, 2021 at home.

Born in the Bronx on May 22, 1928, he was the second child of John and Mary McMahon. After graduating from St. Ann’s Academy in 1945, Martin enlisted in the U.S. Navy V5 pilot program. He spent several semesters at Holy Cross College in Worcester, Ma. training before that program ended. He was a graduate of Fordham University.

In the summer of 1946, Martin met the love of his life, Natalie M. Hastings at Indian Lake in Denville, NJ. They were married on November 27, 1954 and spent 66 years together raising their family.

Martin spent most of his career with Prudential Insurance, retiring in 1988 after 31 years. He also served in the U.S. Army National Guard, retiring with the rank of Major.

Martin lived his life devoted to his family and his faith. He loved his weeks at the beach on Long Beach Island, Emerald Isle and the Outer Banks with the entire family. He and Natalie had great times traveling with Father Ray and the group from Holy Family Parish. They also enjoyed spending time at Elder Hostels, learning new things and meeting new people. He loved to play golf, especially with his sons and grandsons, and his membership at Picatinny Arsenal provided him with many friends. He was an avid life-long reader.
