William McClain “Mackie” Sloan, 79, of Charlotte, NC, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, February 8, 2019 at his residence.

He was born on April 29, 1939 in Olin, NC, the son of the late Lex Sloan and Allie Ree “Tump” Sloan. If you knew Mackie, you would know that he was a sweet, strong man of few words with a laid-back personality and a heart of gold.

Mackie served with the US Army. He enjoyed working in the yard, mowing, fishing and spending time with his family and friends at home or up at the creek. He was a kind-hearted caring man that was loved by many and will be missed terribly. He was a loyal member of Robinson Presbyterian Church and enjoyed volunteering his time at the pantry or mowing or the shelter or to any special projects needed.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Gail Sloan; his daughters, Carmine Elizabeth Sloan and Wendy Abigail Sloan; sister, Lexine Jordan; brother, Andy Sloan and many nieces, nephews and cousins and also many fur babies that he loved to pet any chance he got.

Funeral services are planned for 1:30 pm Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at Robinson Presbyterian Church, 9424 Harrisburg Road, Charlotte, NC 28215 where friends may visit from 12 pm to the time of service.

I first met Mackie and Gail in 2000 when we bought a house down the street from them. At the time my husband Bill and I were the only Blacks in the neighborhood. Mackie and Gail welcomed and embraced us with open arms. There was never a time that we called on them for help that they wasn't there. I will never forget the time when I was in a bad car accident and Mackie and Gail offered one of their vehicles to my husband for his personal use. They also many times let us use their truck for various errands. They never took anything from us in exchange. Mackie even tried to teach us how to start a vegetable garden; we are Northeners so you can only imagine how that went! We loved him and will miss him FIERCELY! May you rest in peace our dear, sweet, loving Mackie. God only call the BEST! Just knowing you lived down the street was very comforting!

I first met Mackie Sloan in 1971 when his brother, Jerry, introduced me to the Sloan family . Mackie smiled and nodded his head in a bashful way. His personality was warm and welcoming. He accepted me into the family from day one.

Mackie never changed over all the years. He always loved and accepted people and he was a very good listener. He would do anything he could to help anyone at any time.

Mackie will be greatly missed by many people.

My condolences to Gail and Carmine and Wendy.

Love ya,
Linda Sloan Agnew
