Mac was born to a Navy submariner, getting his early ‘survival skills’ education in the seaports of
Panama, Charleston and San Diego. He graduated from High School at The Bulkeley School in New
London, Connecticut. He is a Navy veteran who served in the Mediterranean as a radioman nearing the
end of WWII. He is a graduate of the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawk).
He had a passion for work. From his days shining shoes at the Navy base in Charleston while 10 years old
through his retirement at 85, he maintained laser focus on completing every project with the utmost of
care and professionalism. He was a partner in several Consulting Engineering firms over the years:
Gault, Moore & Stevens in Gardner, KS, Associated P&C Engineers in Billings, MT and Stevens &
Associates in Vancouver, WA.
He had a passion for boating. It didn’t matter how old or new the boat – all boats needed to be ‘fiddled’
with. Whether it was a Sears catalog 12’ Aluminum boat or a Ponderosa 42’ Cruiser, he made sure each
of his boats ran smooth and tracked true.
Most notably, he had a passion for the welfare of his children. He spent his life ensuring each of them
had every opportunity to succeed.
A private service will be held.
