Dylan McMahon Obituary, Death- Dylan Charles McMahon, a vibrant soul of 31 years, passed away on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, in Rockford, the place that held his heart.
Born on May 22, 1992, Dylan was the cherished son of John and Cresta (Watson) McMahon, a testament to the love they shared. Dylan’s journey began at Hononegah High School, and he later found his purpose working with JG McMahon Construction.

Yet, among all these passions, one beacon shone the brightest in Dylan’s life—his beloved daughter, Hazel. His unwavering love and dedication to her illuminated every step of his journey.
Dylan embodied love in its purest form, with a heart overflowing with generosity, a wit that could brighten any room, and a compassion that touched everyone he met. He was a one-of-a-kind soul who left a lasting impression on all who had the privilege to know him. Dylan leaves behind a legacy of love, survived by his precious daughter, Hazel; his loving parents, John and Cresta.
