I always remembered Mac when I went to work with my dad Vince Petit. He was always so friendly and found some fun things for me to do while I was in the office.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Mac at American States! He sure made it so my workday was never dull! I will never forget when I first learned I was hired. American States was on Lake Avenue then and everyone had a small office. Mac took me to my office to show me and it was used for storage. Lol There was a big wicker chair in there and he informed me that would be my office chair! But it turned out he was the most helpful in teaching me their computer! He was a great man!
