He graduated in 1947 from Peters High School and was retired from Western Electric. Mac loved to play baseball and played until he was about 70 years old. You called and he would play. He played for Western Electric, Gentilly Knights of Columbus and many other leagues. He was inducted into Commercial Athletics Association in 1974 Baseball Hall of Fame. Mac watched all sports, but especially the college games. One of his biggest loves was for Tulane University Sports. Especially following Tulane Baseball Teams each year. He kept the box scores on all of the games. Many Tulane baseball players would remember him as “Mr. Mac”. Mac was a part of the first All American Team that went to Johnstown, PA every year. Many trophies were won throughout his life. Although Mac really loved college games the New Orleans Saints were right up there in his loves. He was a season ticket holder for over 30 years. As he aged he took up Golf. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Mrs. Fay McConnell would like to acknowledge the kindness, compassion and support received from his care givers with R & R Home Care for 10 years, Dawn Bender RN, Kelly Abbuplon LPN, Karen Lee and Camelia; Hospice nurse, Stephanie; and also for the care at Passages Hospice Hospital, which had a caring staff and beautiful facility. Thank you to our wonderful good friends and neighbors for being there for both of us and The Vineyard Church of New Orleans, Kenner. Thank you God for giving him peace in death.
