I worked with Mac for 20 years. Mac was a wonderful man to work with as he was a very kind and thoughtful man. His stellar leadership always served Middle Tennessee Mental Health and myself. I will always cherish the wood carvings he made for me as they are some of my most prized possessions. Prayers for his family and friends. Mac will be missed.

Mac is my lovable cousin. While growing up I used to spend summers in Knoxville with him and his mom. We always enjoyed each other’s company and shared a special bond. I love him deeply and I know he loved me. The memories I have of him will stay in my heart forever. My heart goes out to Brenda and their sons.
