I worked at Downey Savings for 15 years and could honestly say it was like home. Mac was very good to us and to this day I still say "we" instead of "they" when talking about Downey Savings. Good man who cared for people. Jim Kendall, Downey Savings Administrative Services.

Dianne, Im so sorry to hear about the passing of Maurice. Although I didn't know Maurice, very well I always respected him & knew he made you very happy. Love Bob Johnson Class of 1953.

Thank you Addison! I remember those elk stories on the reservation my dad and Mac use to tell me about them. I'm sorry you just found out but I'm glad you have lasting memories of him. Blessings!

I was blessed to be able to spend some time with Mac when he hunted elk on the Hualapai Reservation. He always had great stories that resonated with me and have since served as great advice. I'm sorry to have just now heard of his passing...I wish I'd sought him out for one more cup of coffee.

They do not make men like Mr Mcalister anymore... I was his mailman years ago in Bullhead City... A self made man. He has all my respect!!!!

Happy Birthday Mr. McAlister, I wish I could have been at Saddleback Church today to celebrate your life. The celebration will probably go on for hours there are so many people you touched and have wonderful stories about you. Dianne and family I hope it brought joy during your sadness to know how much we all loved Mr. McAlister and you. He will truly be missed but his legacy will live on through his family and all of us who had the priviledge and honor to know him and you. God Bless

An amazing individual.. A man among men.
Generous with all he had.
I had wanted to meet him and he wanted to meet me. So we met about listing his Downey
Home. was i in for a surprise.
I hadnt met anyone quite like him and may not again. he shared his God given wisdom
About many things. I thank God for leading me to this man to whom the Nevarez family will always be grateful and will never forget. My brother and i were fortunate to see him and say our goodbyes for now.
God Bless You All!

What can I say? I loved that man. He was a father that I never had. For 31 years I loved going to work each day at Downey Savings. I will always remember when Mac would come to my office and we talked. His first question was "What are you working on?". Mac had a great love and interest in computers. He gave us the tools to turn Downey into the finest Savings and Loan in the industry. I will always remember when he came and said he wanted a state of the art Loan Origination system. I think we gave it to him. He was very proud of the system. My prayes will include the McAlister family and for the man who gave so much to the employees and friends. I hope to see you someday Mac. My friend always.

Wanted everyone to know who would like to attend that Mac's memorial is going to be held on what would have been his 88th birthday. Friday April 26th at 2pm at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest. My grandma has MDS and is very susceptible to things so please if you are under the weather or anything you can give your condolences in the guest book there, here, or with her family, she will see them. Thank you we appreciate your understanding.
