I knew Mac years ago when I lived in Greensboro, and he was a young boy, full of curiosity, affection, and playfulness. Unfortunately, over time, and as life sometimes takes us into new directions, we can lose touch with people in our lives. I had eventually relocated, and was unable to see Mac grow into the wonderful man that he became. Mac was a joy as a child, and from reading these precious memories, it is obvious that Mac had also grown into a kind and good man as well. My condolences go out to his wife, Michele, their children, and extended family, and I will keeping them in my heart and prayers. Go gently with God, dear Mac.

McGuire Family,

Please except my condolence for such great lost.
I was introduced to Mac last year when I joined Cedar pool.
It was such crazy year, but Mac welcomed me with his kind face
and wide smile.
I volunteered to help this year with pool "clean up" day .
He greeted me with the same gestures and thanked me at least 100 times for the cash donations to the pool.
This is a man, I totally respected and always admired his character and examples displayed to our younger generation.
My heart is with you,
Cynthia S. Smith

To the McGuire family,
We are truly sadden by the news of Mac's passing and will always remember our time spent with your family during our summers at Cedarwood Swim and Tennis Club. The joy and laugher that Mac displayed while trying to get the greasy watermelon away from my son will always be a memory of what a good and fun loving person that has transitioned to his heavenly home. Mac will be missed, and you and your family are forever in our prayers. May his smile radiate in your hearts and you cherish the memories as we all shall.

I dont know "Mac" like most people. I only met him once. During our 25th High School reunion. However, he was so funny and very welcoming. I also know, he was married to a wonderful person inside and out. One day we will all be celebrating together again.
Bless everyone that has been touched by such a great human.

Mac and Michelle were a part of my life for a brief period of time between 2000 and 2002. Though we didn’t get to spend more years sharing life than we did, Mac’s investment in my life in my early 20s prepared the way for the Lord to redirect my life and call me into vocational ministry. 20 years later, I am still in ministry at the same church that Mac and Michelle helped me get connected with. I know his impact was similar on countless others, and that the treasure he has stored in heaven is significant. Prayers for everyone still in this life that have a piece of their heart missing now that he is gone.

Our family will cherish every single wonderful memory we made together. Beach trips, Disney, mountain weekends, game nights, Christmas parties, and the simple times we shared. We will forever miss you, and the ways you could always make us all laugh. We will meet again one day…

What can I say Mac other than the many years that I have known you, you were an amazing friend, Father, abs Coach. I had the pleasure of knowing you in all those areas, but coaching with you those several years will have to be the most memorable. Playing scrimmages with our girls and teaching them all we knew about the game. I will miss seeing your smiling face on Facebook (since I moved to Colorado) and just in general. RIP my dear friend. You touched so many lives and will truly be missed. Carla

Ten years ago, Morgan was in my 5th grade classroom, as well as being a member of fLACO & ZE CLOWNETTES, our clown ministry at Florence Elementary. When Morgan signed up, Mac asked me "do you ever let parents clown?" I said "you bet" and Mac became TROUBLE, an hilarious performing adult clownette !

I have many memories playing ball with Mac (softball and basketball). I remember one of if not the first win we had with Gate City basketball was about 3 of 4 games in we had not won a game, but Mac hit a game winner. After the hand shakes Mac was sitting on the bench he looked up and said "Coke look at my legs they are still jumping for the adrenaline". The smile he had was unforgettable. He played with passion and he was a great teammate. Most importantly he love for God was genuine.

Mac will always be one of my favorite people. I'm deeply saddened and still in shock over his death because he had enough life in him for ten people and it couldn't stop flowing out of him everywhere he went. It's a tragic loss for all of us who are missing him. I know his soul is in the presence of God, but that doesn't stop my wanting him to still be here. I'm blessed because I knew him, and because I will see him again. Michele, Mo, Matt, Mason -- I love you and I'm covering you with prayer every day.
