It was a very touching service 

Officers who worked with Mahan, as well as some who grew up with him, spoke about his family first approach to life. Stacey's oldest son was able to deliver a wonderful summary of his relationship with his father and the many avenues they found to bond over. A proper tribute was given to Mahan and his family by the law enforcement community. The service was streamed with hundreds of viewers throughout the service.
