He was born on April 29, 1939 in Olin, NC, the son of the late Lex Sloan and Allie Ree “Tump” Sloan. If you knew Mackie, you would know that he was a sweet, strong man of few words with a laid-back personality and a heart of gold.
Mackie served with the US Army. He enjoyed working in the yard, mowing, fishing and spending time with his family and friends at home or up at the creek. He was a kind-hearted caring man that was loved by many and will be missed terribly. He was a loyal member of Robinson Presbyterian Church and enjoyed volunteering his time at the pantry or mowing or the shelter or to any special projects needed.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Gail Sloan; his daughters, Carmine Elizabeth Sloan and Wendy Abigail Sloan; sister, Lexine Jordan; brother, Andy Sloan and many nieces, nephews and cousins and also many fur babies that he loved to pet any chance he got.
Funeral services are planned for 1:30 pm Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at Robinson Presbyterian Church, 9424 Harrisburg Road, Charlotte, NC 28215 where friends may visit from 12 pm to the time of service. Committal services and burial with military honors will take place in Charlotte Memorial Gardens.
