OBITUARY

Thor Macht

November 2, 1994October 1, 2019

Andrew Thorin Macht, was lovingly known as Thor to his family and friends, was an actor, photographer, singer, athlete, lifelong fanatical Ravens fan, a natural entertainer, and a gentle and caring friend. Not every person in this world feels true joy for the achievements of others, and very few of us can say that our #1 goal in life is to make the world brighter and be a friend to everyone. But that was Thor's goal. Thor was a warmhearted soul. Helping other people to overcome their difficulties, pursue their goals, and become their best selves was his mission. And he led by example, in pursuit of his own big dreams. He was bit by the acting bug in 2014, and from there landed a long list of gigs that included numerous television series, Hollywood films, Indie films, regional television commercials, and voice overs. His second passion was photography. He was a freelance photographer for the Henrico Citizen, the Richmond Roughriders, and the Mills E. Godwin community. He was a football fanatic, played tight end for his varsity high school team, and was forever flying the purple and black of the Baltimore Ravens. He loved music, singing, and being an all around entertainer with his goofy dancing. But it was all for the smiles on other people's faces. If he was with you, it was his job to keep you smiling and laughing. He found his greatest happiness by bringing it to others, to his family, and to his friends. And everyone was Thor's friend, because that's what he wanted most of all.

Thor is the beloved son of Linda Balder and her husband Robert and Andrew P. Macht; loving brother of Jessica A. Macht; grandson of the late Albert and Lorraine Paolino and Stuart and Ann Macht; adored nephew of Marcella Wood, Eugene and Gayani Paolino, Steven Macht, Linda Macht Collier and the late Albert Paolino. Also survived by his life long friend, Chase Spicer and a host of cousins across the country, and Canada.

To Thor's family,
I believe it was 14 yeays ago that I had Thor in my Reading class at Byrd Middle. He is one of the most memorable students I had in my 41 year career. I especially remember his interaction with the visiting author Christopher Paul Curtis. Thanks to FB, I have followed his work as a photographer and actor in recent years. I am heartbroken. I want him to still be here, living life, taking photos, smiling. I sure will miss him.

Thor was a kind, compassionate, friendly, loving boyfriend and friend in our relationship. I am very much grieving this loss, as Thor provided so much support in my life. He was truly an angel and a special person. I am saddened by what has happened, and hopeful he is not in pain anymore. This obituary was beautifully written and accurately described how wonderful he was. My heart is sad that I couldn’t reach out more during his difficult times. I’ll always love you, Thor. Fly high. I will never forget you or your contagious energy and spirit.

Macht Family,

There are so many words to describe the great and caring person Thor was but friendly and charismatic stand out for me. He always made me laugh and never failed to ask how I was doing. This is a tragic loss but someone we all will never forget. RIP Thor 🙏

I'll never forget teaching Thor. Very few people have the power to lift the spirits of others with a smile but Thor was special like that. I remember a kid with sweatpants and ruffled hair strolling into my room with a big smile and always asking me, "What up Mr. K? How are you doing?" I loved talking football with Thor and hearing his love and passion for his beloved Baltimore Ravens come through in his voice. Sometimes we'd see each other at the YMCA years after he had been at Byrd and each time I knew I was in for a good conversation. Thor was an original in every sense of the word. I'll miss looking for him at the YMCA. Rest easy Thor.

Thor was one of the nicest, and caring students I have ever had in many years of teaching. A true joy to know. I remember when I had cafeteria duty and I would see Thor sitting with others at the lunch tables, and Thor would always cheer someone up with his infectious good-nature and he was always able to bring a smile to a person who seemed sad or alone. Rest in peace Thor, and know that you will be remembered by many of us for your unwavering humanity.

My days in Consultative Study were made brighter by Thor’s infectious smile, helpful, giving nature and kind words for everyone that crossed his path. He was the first Ravens fan that I met at GHS, and could rock the purple better than anyone. In my book, Thor was and always will be the most valuable Eagle to grace the halls at GHS.

Thor. I will miss you. You had such a good heart. Thank you for treating me with kindness. You will truly be missed. I liked singing Always Look on the Bright Side of Life and You’ll Never Walk Alone with you. Even though I have Down Syndrome you treated me the same. You really deserved Most Valuable Eagle. Love, Owen Hicks

Thor was a great guy. He was one of the only guys in my classes who would ask you someone if they were doing okay if they looked sad or upset. He always reached out out no longer how long it had been since you last talked. Thor cared. Glad to have known him.
