Old guys are cool

Mark Mahoney poses with a box of Goose Old Man Grumpy Pale Ale, a fitting selection.

Today (Friday, June 26) is staff writer Mark Mahoney’s birthday and his last day as a member of the Iowa Information team.

Mark and his wife, Christina, and their daughter, Hazel, will be moving to Nebraska where they recently purchased a new home and to be closer to family.

Mark has been Iowa Information for 6-and-a-half years and has written countless articles for us and approximately 50 Take 5s.

As Mark’s friend and managing editor, I’ve decided to reshare five Take 5s that sum up Mark’s essence, which is being an outwardly super serious old soul who cares about his family, torturing his friends with bad jokes and occasionally writing stories. He also managed to literally break a bone while bowling once.

Good luck on your next journey and thank you for the puns!
