John was born on September 16, 1946 to John and Ina Mae (Mills) McMahan, Sr. in Childress, Texas. He graduated high school in Quanah, Texas. John worked in construction most of his life and was a member of the Rose Assembly of God Church. He always had a smile and a hello for everyone he encountered, he didn't know a stranger. In his younger years, he would visit area nursing homes and entertain the elderly by singing church hymns and praise music. John had such a zest for life and he devoted himself to caring for those he loved. John enjoyed watching WWE wrestling, OSU football, Thunder Basketball and cheering on the Navajo Indians. His time spent with family was his greatest treasure.

John is preceded in death by his parents, a daughter, Christina Martinez, and a brother, Charles Cox. He leaves behind two sons, Stephen McMahan and J D McMahan; grandchildren, Adriana, Javi, Stephanie, John, Kaithlynn, Marcus and Ronnie: his sisters, Dorothy Bramblow and Pauline Loveless; brothers, Paul Briscoe and David Knowles; his sister, Linda Cox, and James and Monica Cox; his special nieces, Damaris, Chelsea and Cassi Cox; his special nephews, Dallas and Devon Cox; and many other friends.
