Mack Miracle

December 10, 1956 — April 7, 2022


Mack H. Miracle of Miracle Kentucky, entered into his heavenly slumber on Thursday, April 7, 2022, in his home, surrounded by his loving family.

Mack was born in Monroe, Michigan on Dec. 10, 1956.  At the age of 17, Mack joined the United States Army and lived his life as a proud Vietnam Era Veteran. Mack spent the last 30 years building lifelong friendships with his co-workers at M. Fine and SEKRI, where he was an industrial sewing machine mechanic.

An avid hunter Mack enjoyed the outdoors, teaching his children and grandchildren to hunt was one of his favorite activities. If Mack wasn't spending his free time in the woods, he could be found in the yard working on a "project” or tending to his plants.
