Wade “Mac” McCoy, CMSgt (Ret), Lusby, 2/4 Oct

National Mission Thread

It is with great sadness I share the news of the passing of Chief (Ret) Wade “Mac” McCoy.  During his time in the Air Force he was stationed in San Antonio, TX, Biloxi, MS, Westover, MA, Denver, CO, The Pentagon and overseas in Japan, Korea, Turkey, and Canada.  The day after retirement from the Air Force, Mac went back to work as a civilian for the Air Force, Department of Defense as a Communications Electronic Systems Manager and retired in 1992.  He was a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Mac was one of a kind.  He and Joanne had been married for 50 years with 4 children and 5 grandkids.  Mac was special to our family because he was also the ‘adopted’ Dad of our own Kevin Rock. The McCoy’s took a young airman into their lives many years ago and have always been very good to him.   Kevin will be attending this mission as a member of the family instead of as Ride Captain.

Our heartfelt condolences go to Joanne and the entire McCoy clan.
