Ed retired as a Supervising Adjuster from the Continental Insurance Company and as a General Adjuster from Charles R. Mead Associates. Ed loved to spend time and have a beer or a gin and tonic with his family and his many friends. He loved Yankees baseball and Notre Dame football, and he enjoyed a lifelong love/hate relationship with his beloved New York Giants. Ed is survived by his children Frank Mahan (Debbie) of Cary, NC, Barbara Mahan (Donna) of Delmar, NY, Michael Mahan of Albany, NY and his step-son Ken Stahl (Lulu), who is the son of his dear departed friends Taeko and Walter Stahl.
