Words can't express the gratitude I feel toward Mac for giving me a chance to contribute at Downey, nor the sorrow I've felt since our efforts fell short. That sorrow is compounded now with Mr. McAlister's passing.

Mac never wanted to settle for 'no,' never wanted to leave a situation without finding a way to make it better. His straightforward nature and relentlessly positive attitude made him the type of person anyone would be proud to be associated with.

We all owe you a debt of gratitude for the contributions you've made, Mac. You'll be missed.

They say that greatness starts at the top and this was true of Downey Savings and MAC. My 10 years at DSL were the most rewarding and enriching years of my life. I am truly appreciative of the opportunity that I had working for such a sound institution. This is a testament to the foundation that MAC established and it definitely reflected in the many great people that worked there. Mac and his great stories of hardship coming from Arkansas to California to establish that great bank are an inspiration to the common man to strive and work hard for greatness. You will be missed. I know that going into God's presence is a much deserved reward for the many whose lives you help to enrich on this earth. God Bless you to you and your family!

I've been at a total loss for words since hearing of Mac's passing, as I always believed his endless energy and strength of character would cause him to live to 110 and beyond. I've not only lost a good friend, but a mentor and man of immeasurable honesty and goodness. I will miss our phone calls lamenting the state of the economy, speculating on the ups and downs of real estate and what garden seeds I should plant this year. Mac was not only generous of his time, but sharing of his wisdom. Whenever I told him about a problem, his response was always, “Well now, let me see…” His creativity partnered with good common sense made him a standout among all men. His parting leaves a giant hole in my heart that will never be filled by anyone else and I will miss him terribly. I offer my hope and prayers for nothing but happy memories to his wonderful wife, Dianne, and his gracious family.

Mr. McAlister was one of a kind. He helped thousands and thousands of people without them knowing. No matter the situation he always had a positive attitude, words of encouagement, along with much wisdom. There are not enough words to express the impact he made on my life. My prayers are for Dianne and his family I know he will be greatly missed. My heart broke when I learned he had gone to be with The Lord but I can truly say for all he did and the lives he touched his crown of glory might be too heavy for him to wear. Thank you Mr. McAlister and Dianne for everything including how much you cared about others, you are both one of a kind. Valerie Lay

Downey Savings was like home and Mr McAlister was always so friendly. He actually dressed up one Halloween and made the rounds of the departments. Too funny. I grew up in Downey and remember when Downey Savings opened. When I was hired in 1982, my childhood dentist Dr Strang was still on the Board of Directors. So many connections. Downey Savings Corporate HQ was a fun place to work, I was there for 18 years until retired. Mr McAlister made it fun.
