To the family I knew Mr. Hill by coming into the McLennan County Treasurer Office. We used to have talks about his walks and he loved to tell jokes. He was a hoot & made me laugh all the time. I am going to miss his fun humor, smile & just seeing him. He will be missed greatly.

I'm so blessed to have known Roy Mack, who always had a greeting and a kind word every time I saw him. He was thoughtful and represented his clients so well. I will miss seeing him around the courthouse. Godspeed, my friend.

Roy Mack befriended me on our first day of law school. We were both back to school for a new career. We became good friends, study partners and practice court partners. I loved his wry humor and aromatic pipe. I can´t count the number of times he made me or a group of us laugh. I know he was a contribution to the Waco bar and a zealous advocate for his clients. To his girls and family I send my sincere condolences.

The Courthouse will not be the same without his daily visits giving out kind words or just simply to say hello. He will be greatly missed. To his family, thank you for sharing him with us.

Roy Mack befriended me our first day of law school. During that time he was a friend to me and many others, my study partner and practice court partner. He made me laugh more times than I can count. I know he was a contribution to the Waco bar and a determined advocate for his clients. My sincere condolences to his girls and his entire family.

I lived here close to my Dad and am so grateful for all of his knowledge , genuine nature and gentle ways. He was a brilliant man who gave so much to so many. I am so happy I was able to kiss his cheek one last time. I spoke to him at least two or three times each week and I am so glad I was able to have those conversations with him. I will always hold onto every memory. Thank you to his friends who have been by his side all these years. I love you , Daddy. -Julia
