Mac and I were in the Class of 1970 at Springfield Local High School.  He was a quiet and unassuming.  I met up with him in the mid 1970s in Amsterdam and he told me he had been in the Army and served in Vietnam.  But he didn't mention what he did there.  It was so like him.  I send my deep condolences to his wife,  daughter, and all his family and friends.  I will be sure to let his classmates know.
