Mr Mack was a good man and always had time to listen, not only to family and friends, but to employees.
I thank you for all the years I worked for you, and I often think back on that time.
He will be missed.
God has called you home.
Sincerest condolences to the rest of the family. Really wish we could have gotten together more and written your memoirs. Such an incredible life. Will miss you, Uncle Mack, and what might have been.

Mack was a wonderful friend and bridge partner. Everyone liked him. Love and prayers to his family Rayma Watson
Mack was a good friend and loved to play bridge. He and I rode to Canyon each Monday morning to play bridge there. He was a fine person and to know him was to like him.
He was a strong man who lived through great ordeals. I am proud to have known him.
Rest in peace, Uncle Mack. I will miss you. I wish I’d known years ago that you played the violin. We could have played duets.
Condolences to the family. Mack was a very good man whom
I respected greatly.
