Br. John McMahon OFM., was born in Meriden, Connecticut, on January 3, 1916. A graduate of St. Joseph's Seraphic Seminary in Callicoon, New York, he entered the Holy Name Province's Novitiate at St. Bonaventure Friary, Paterson, New Jersey, in 1936.
In 1937, he professed Temporary Vows. Because of illness, John was sent to the west to St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, where he professed his Solemn Vows in 1943.
Brother John moved to Queen of Angels Hospital in Los Angeles, California, in 1944, where he showed signs of improvement following a surgical spinal fusion. His sparkling personality and sense of humor won all who met him. He had an intense desire to become a priest but offered the sacrifice of this cherished wish to God when it became apparent he would never recover his health.
In 1946, his request to return to the east was granted. After a short stay at St. Anthony's Hospital in Warwick, New York, he died at St. Mary's Hospital in Hoboken, New Jersey, on September 10, 1947, at the early age of 31.
