FRANCIS NATHAN "MAC" MCHENRY, 88, of Panorama City,
CA, passed away on Jan. 28, 2011 of stomach cancer.
He was born in Ranger, TX on Dec. 12, 1922. He was
a very talented artist from the age of 12. Mac
graduated from Ranger High School in 1940. He later
joined the U.S. Air Force during WWII with his buddy,
Bob Hunt. Mac played the French horn in the Air Force
and after, with the Philadelphia Symphony. He was a
college graduate and an excellent dancer--he won many
caps in ballroom dancing. And it was a great joke
that he drove with a "lead foot"!
Mac leaves behind a daughter, Monett, two grandson,
and his son-in-law, Keith. Also many cherished friends:
Bob Hunt whom Mac knew from grammar school on up; Jim
Charles of Texas; retired Army nurse Billy Feliz; Dianne
Blake-Ohman, dear friend of twenty years; Porky Johnson,
who took great care of Mac as did friend and neighbor
Tony Gibson; as well as the members of the Reel Cowboys.
Mac was much loved and was a charming, talented gentleman,
unafraid of the truth, noble, and will be greatly missed
by all those who loved him.
