Kevin Sean Mahan

October 29, 1962 January 25, 2016

On January 25, 2016, Kevin Mahan passed away at his home in Woodbridge, Virginia. He was 53 years old. Kevin was born in Philadelphia, PA to Helen and John Mahan. At the age of two, the Mahans moved to Thousand Oaks, CA, where Kevin spent the next 35 years of his life. Kevin was a graduate of Westlake High School and discovered his lifelong passion for theatrical lighting during his work with the Conejo Players Theater in Thousand Oaks. Thereafter, he attended the theatrical lighting program at the Juilliard School in New York.

Upon graduation from the program, he began working at the Pasadena Playhouse, and eventually became the theater's director of lighting. It was there he met his wife, Kathleen, and their first son, Riley, was born in California. The young family moved to Fairfax, VA when Kevin accepted a job with the Shakespeare Theatre, where he also became lighting director. Their second son, Bryce, was born in Fairfax.

In addition to his love for his family, Kevin had a deep love for baseball, and was a devoted fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers and then the Washington Nationals. He was also an excellent baseball player both in his youth and teens, and enjoyed playing in an adult baseball league later in his life. Other passions over the years included fishing, spending time with his beloved dog, Logan, and entertaining his sons with a fireworks display each Fourth of July and Christmas lights in December. He also loved movies and spending time at the beach.

Kevin is survived by his two sons, Riley Mahan and Bryce Mahan, his mother Helen Mahan, his brother Chris Mahan and wife Carrie, sister Paula Mahan-Crary, nieces Shane Campbell-Kaslin, Laura Mahan-McDermott, and Kelly Mahan, nephews Mike Mahan and Matthew Mahan, and several grand nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, John Mahan.

His deep laugh and witty sense of humor will be deeply missed by his family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to:
