Mac was lost when the P-3A Orion aircraft he was co-piloting crashed near Searchlight, NV. Stationed at NAS Barber's Point, HI, the aircraft and crew was over NV for cross-country navigation training.

He was survived by his wife, Rose.

Previously selected for promotion to LT, he was posthumously promoted.


From GH Spaulding:

On 1 October, 41 family members, friends and fellow squadron mates gathered in Searchlight, Nevada to honor fallen shipmates from VP-I 7. They observed a new bronze plaque depicting an Orion mounted on a large rock at the local park. The sculpture memorializes the 10 P-3A (ZE.6, BuNo 152159) crew members who perished in a crash in the Searchlight area on August 3rd, 1970. Crew member names are on a separate plaque on the rock.
