KAILUA-KONA — A public celebration of life will be held Saturday for veteran Hawaii Fire Department Capt. David Alan Mahon, 49, who was killed last week in a three-car crash on Mamalahoa Highway.
Mahon’s family and friends invite the community to a service that will open at 2 p.m. with a reception at the ballroom Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay.
Before the celebration, the Fire Department will hold a last alarm at 1 p.m. At approximately 1:15, a vehicle procession will commence from the Kailua-Kona Fire Station, down Palani Road, continuing onto Alii Drive to the Sheraton.
At 5:30 p.m., Fair Wind Cruises will depart Keauhou Bay for a scattering of Mahon’s ashes in the waters off the Kona Coast. To reserve a spot on the vessel, if available, call Kyle at (808) 960-1756.
From 6 to 7 p.m., a service will be held at Lyman’s at Holualoa Bay. Those unable to get on the boat are encouraged to head to Lyman’s with a surfboard or stand-up paddleboard (SUP). The family asks attendees to bring loose flowers to drop in the water. The celebration of life will come to a close about 7:30 p.m.
