I will always remember his unique ability to make everyone around him laugh. I loved being around Mac .... one of my favorite memories is eating at Red Lobster and getting asked to leave because we (Mac) were having a VERY good time and getting kinda loud. He was one of a kind and will be sorely missed!!

Mackie lived his life the way he chose to, on his terms and in his own way. This is why we all loved him and will miss him so much, he was unique, one of a kind and he truly enjoyed being who he was. It is so very rare to meet someone with that kind of outlook on life. The world is a lesser place without him.
