Mac was a sweet fella!!! Knew him from our time in Forest Hills and Cullowhee High School. I pray his family finds God's strength and peace during this difficult time.

Mac will be missed at work. He was a very hard working man who was always positive and had a smile on his face. Even better he knew his Savior. Miss you Mac. I pray that God comforts your family during this difficult time. Kenny Jones
