Mack had distinguished a 40 year career as a Realtor and member of the Arkansas Board of Realtors in Little Rock. Mack was co-owner and broker of the first Remax franchise in Little Rock, "Remax Affiliates Realty". Later, Mack opened and operated "Mack and Company Realtors" in Little Rock where he served the community with integrity and professionalism until the end of his career. Mack was a routine recipient to the Board of Realtors, "Million Dollar Club Award".
Mack was a committed Christian and possessed a strong faith and love of the Lord. Mack's faith helped him through many obstacles in life and made him an excellent father, brother, son, and friend. Mack was a strong student of the bible and often quoted his favorite verse, Mark 12:30 "Love the Lord God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."
Mack was a loving and devoted father to his daughter, Courtney whom he referred to as the greatest joy and accomplishment of his life. Mack was an avid hunter and fisherman with membership in Speer Hunting Club in Tinsman, Arkansas which he founded with his brother in law and long time friends.
Mack's absence will be deeply felt by friends, and family who were greatly impacted by his work ethic, love of and concern for others, his sense of community and civic responsibility, his quick wit and humor, and his love and devotion to family and friends.
