The Piano Brothers

Chris McMahan, age 42, of Black Mountain, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 in Old Fort.  A native of Black Mountain, Chris was born on March 1, 1975 to Larry McMahan of Black Mountain and the late Lynn Burnett Ruff.  Chris battled a debilitating illness for many years.  In spite of his disabilities, he truly loved doing things outdoors including camping and fishing.  Riding motorcycles was one of his favorite activities.  More than all that, though, spending time with his children and other family members was the thing that he enjoyed most.  A private service will be held at a later date.  

Chris is survived by eight children: Brandon, Jacob, Amanda, Zachary, Brittany, Zephaniah, Tzipporah McMahan and Tyler Smith. He was also the loving brother of Cary, Brad, Junior, Joey McMahan and Brandy, Joel, Scott, Kevin and Todd Ruff.
