8 Condolences for Mack Ray Bailey

  • Cookie,

    I am sorry to hear that Mack had passed away. Kim texted me on Saturday to let me know.
    I enjoyed talking with Mack. He was always telling me about his work. The one day we all went to Applebee’s while I was talking to him, I truly felt that he had gone to work that day and was talking business with the guys. He had a way of talking that would want you to listen to him. That is the way I felt anyway. I am sure that this journey over the last year has been very hard on you. My condolences.

    Deepest sympathy,

    Chuck, Tina, John, and David Kaczmarczyk

  • Cookie,
    From the eastern shore, to Delmarva, to the heat of the desert, to the lake effect snow & back to Delmarva you & Mack created a lifetime of memories. Even though the last 2 years were the worst, they were good too because we got to spend so much time together doing things with Mack.
    Everyday was a holiday! I will miss my brother in-law of 50 plus years. I love you.

  • Cookie,
    We are so very sorry to hear that Mack passed. It seems that time has also passed too quickly. We do think of you often and then something happens and more time passes. We will remember the good times we shared in Delaware and CT. Mack was a very special person. He will be missed by everyone who was fortunate to have known him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you……..
    Sincerely, Ed and Mary

  • Dear Cookie! We are so very sorry for the loss of Mack. I, (Fran) remember Our snowmobiling times and how much fun we had. Mary Jane met Mack some years ago, and was very fond of Mack and how friendly and intelligent he was. We enjoyed your friendship and we so enjoyed visiting and having lunch with you and Mack. We hope you will find peace that he is in a better place. We love you, Cookie. Franny and Mary Jane

  • This is your old next door neighbor from Delpark Manor, Joyce Thompson 2117 Ferguson Drive. Mack was truly a great person, he was like a surrogate father to me growing up. He helped me with my car, and things around our home. My father traveled a lot and Mack was always there if we needed anything. He also set me up for an interview at W.L. Gore and helped me get a job with the Company. I will be celebrating my 36 years with Gore this month. It’s been a great 36 years and I always credit him for helping me get in.
    I am truly sorry for your loss, Mack was such a good person to me and my family growing up and I think and speak highly of him often.

    Take care, Joyce Thompson/Luff

  • Bert,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I will always remember the good times I had with Mack while working at papermill and Phoenix plant. Regardless of ones work commitment he was always there for support and encouragement. As I write this I reflect on the hospitality I received while visiting Mack at his home in Phoenix. I can recall the lightning strikes that occurred across the mountain terrain and the soothing fresh air that occurred as a result. We had a good time enjoying each other through conversation. That I will Miss and remember! I will not say goodbye, but so long because I know we will meet again.

    God Bless,

    Ken Kennedy

  • Cookie,

    Janis & I send our condolences. We have such fond memories of time spent with you, We remember snowmobiling, boating, crabbing, and visiting with our relatives. We especially remember Palm Sunday of 1989 spent at the Phoenix Zoo with you. Mack insisted that we drink water to stay hydrated
    in the dry heat. We want you to know that we are keeping you in our prayers and ask that God be with
    you to support you and give you guidance so that you can face the future. Love, Bill&Janis
