Mac served his country during World War II as an aerial gunner in the B-24 Liberator bombers in the South Pacific. Mac attended Marshall University in Huntington, WV, where he studied business. He was an active member of Southeast Christian Church for many years serving on the communion committee. Previous to that, he attended Buechel Park Baptist Church for many years. Mac retired from Snap-On Tools Corp. where he was the recipient of multiple awards for salesmanship.
