Zachary Paul McMahon, 41, passed away at his home in Olathe, KS on June 12, 2017.
He was born September 6, 1975 in Lincoln, NE to Richard and Laurie McMahon. Zach graduated from Lenox Community Schools in 1993, and went on to earn a Doctorate in Pharmacy from the University of Iowa in 2000.
Zach worked as a Clinical Pharmacist and Hospital Administrator, as well as working in consulting and conducting research.
On February 27, 2016, he married Becca Ayne Bell, and they made their home in Olathe, KS.
He was a proud member of Friday Night Lights fantasy football league, a master labeler and he was the official family medical advisor. He was also a terrible driver.
Zach enjoyed collecting sports memorabilia of all kinds, including the Nebraska Huskers and the Royals. Among Zach's favorites were reading, movies, music concerts, Diet Mountain Dew, Laffy Taffy, and Sour Patch Kids. He also had a amazing ability and gift to fix/repair/diagnose all things related to technology.
Zach is survived by his wife, Becca, his mother and step-father, Laurie and Ronald Travis, father and step-mother Richard and Linda McMahon, his brothers and sisters Trevor (Stephanie) McMahon, Michael Travis, Teresa and Neal Schnoor, Randee and Roberto Ruiz, and Jackie and Jamie Trutter, step-brother Jack and step-sister Rachael, his step-children Olivia, Ethan and Brooklyn, and nephews and nieces Rachel, Graham, Grant, Bobby, Ava, Briley and Oliver.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents Evelyn and Paul Lund, Dick McMahon, Lloyd and Esther Travis, and his uncle, John McMahon.
We will always love and miss Zach, but his laugh, his infectious smile, his dimples, and his over-the-top generosity will live on in our memory.
