Not sure what to say?

Just found out about Bill's passing. So sad to hear this. I drove a truck for about 40 years and up until XM took him off he was always there and a friend to all of us. Been a fan since the WBAP days. Met him and Miss Cindy one time at a truck show and it was one of the highlights of my life. So sorry for his family's loss. BILL MACK WILL BE MISSED!!

So sorry just finding this out,thoughts and blessings for Bills family,we loved Bill & Miss Cindy,Lois lane & Jack truck drivers,listened to Bill on Xmas radio & met him at the truckshows

He was the greatest kept me company for many years you will be missed God bless you and your family sincerely Ron Dickey Arab Al.

I just wanted to say I spent nights on the road in high school traveling the back roads of Texas coming home late at night listening to Bill Mack's show on the radio was the only thing that kept me awake and rolling on down the road. My brother's and I really enjoyed him and I THANK HE & GOD For keeping me awake on those drives back from horse shows from all over Texas. RIP BILL MACK

Listening to Bill Mack was the highlight of my night at 14 years of age, because I knew my Father, a long haul truck driver would be listening to him and that made me feel closer to my Father. I enjoyed Bill Mack's voice so much, it was friendly!!!! Makes me sad that he is gone now - last link to my Father, he was killed in 1965 by someone who ran him off the road. Thank you to Bill Mack for keeping him awake while he was driving!!!!

My deepest condolences to Bill Mack's family...

My Million Mile Club jacket from WBAP's Midnight Cowboy, Bill Mack!

Like countless other truck drivers whose long hours behind the wheel during the night hours made for a niche that only The Midnight Cowboy, Bill Mack, could fill, this gentleman with the perfect voice and honest empathy for those of us that were on the road, won a place in my heart for all time. I was pleased beyond description to receive a jacket from Bill, inducting me into the Million Mile Club, and got to meet him at last, in person, at the Mid-America Truck Show (MATS) in 1996 or 1997....

Condolences. May God comfort you. God heals your broken hearts and those who are crushed in spirit. So sorry for your loss.
