MCKINLEY WAS ONE OF OUR ALBANY LEADERS THAT DID MANY AMAZING THINGS FOR OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY. FOR MANY YEARS OF WORKING WITH HIM AND HIS DEDICATED TEAM OF BROTHERS THE BARRIERS TO THEIR EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES WERE REMOVED AND THEY WERE GIVEN THE "DIGNITY OF A PAYCHECK". OUR THANKS FOR HIS COMMITMENT TO THE MOST NEEDY IN ALBANY.

To the Jones family,
Please accept our deepest condolences. "Buster" was more like a big brother than a cousin. Like many others, I idolized and respected him because he was part of a team of mentors I had growing up. Thank you for being there. Rest in peace Mac!!
