Mack attended grade school in Moline and graduated from Elk Valley High School with the class of 1980. Right after graduation he had signed his intent to join the United States Army but shortly fell seriously ill and was never able to serve. Mack’s work resume is the blueprint of a jack of all trades, he worked in construction, the oil fields, underground utilities, Longton Coop, school bus driver, Hackney & Sons, Elk Manor Nursing Home, and Cessna. If one word could describe Mack, it would be volunteer, he was the first person to offer help to anyone in need.

He volunteered to drive the church bus for the youth group canoe trips, he volunteered with the Fishing Has No Boundaries, and served on many local boards and committees to make his hometown a little bit better. Mack was a generous person that always went above and beyond. Mack knew everyone, it was hard to go anywhere without running into someone that he didn’t know. He was an extraordinarily tough person, strong as an ox but on the same hand, one of the most gentle people you could have come across.
