March 17, 1938 - September 12, 2020
Roger Leon Mahan, 82, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his family on September 12, 2020. He was born on St. Patrick’s Day, 1938, to Clarence and Alice (Brothers) Mahan in Orange County, Indiana. Roger owned his own masonry contracting business for many years and was a lifetime member of Moose Lodge 1081. More recently he worked as a Maintenance Supervisor for Bryan Rentals where he could be found overseeing many projects around Bloomington, His family will remember him as their go-to for advice; whether it was a “weird noise” that a car was making or helping with a bathroom remodel, he always knew the answer. He would always insist that if you were going to do something, do it right the first time. Roger was a fan of NASCAR, the Indy 500, a good NFL game, and IU sports. On Sundays he could often be found in the garage watching the races or ballgames. In the Spring, he could be found in the woods, looking for mushrooms. He also gained a lot of joy in spending time with his canine best friend, Katiedog. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Lily Sharon as well as their two daughters: Debra (Jack) Morrison, of Mooresville and Kim “Mahan” Farris of Ellettsville. He also leaves behind three grandchildren: Mechelle Farris (Uriah Girdley), Amanda Farris and David Farris, all of Ellettsville; two great-grandsons: Kyan Mathews and Arlo Girdley; his brother Mike (Deb) Mahan as well as several cherished nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, sister Janice Kruse, and brother Robert Mahan. Friends and family are welcome to attend his gravesite funeral service at Valhalla Gardens on Friday, September 18 at 2:00PM. Due to Covid-19 restrictions masks will be required. Please join the procession leaving from Allen Funeral home at 1:30PM or join the service at 2:00PM.
