McNair Lane - San Antonio, TX

Friends,

I'm just back from an unexpected weekend trip to the beautiful city of San Antonio where I attended a family gathering to celebrate the life of my uncle, McNair ("Mac") Lane.

There is little chance any of you met my Uncle Mac. He lived most of his life in the Panama Canal Zone, working on the Canal after he left the U.S. Navy and until his retirement. He and his wife lived near Center Point, TX for some years until they relocated to San Antonio.

Mac and his wife Priscilla raised nine children, all of whom were born in the Canal Zone and spent most of their lives there. Most of them have relocated to Texas - several in the San Antonio area; one lives in Mississippi and one has returned to live in Panama. Mac is survived by his wife of 66 years, eight children, numerous grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. I have attached a photo of the family gathering this past Saturday, but this isn't everyone in the family!

"Big Mac" was a big man. Big and strong physically, with big hands and a big voice. When Mac yelled, you listened! As a kid I was a little intimidated by him; over the years I saw him mellow and I learned to see the big-hearted man beneath the "man's man" veneer.

The remarks made by his oldest son at the family gathering were touching, heart-warming, humorous, and illuminating. Stories were shared about how Mac saved a man's life while in the Navy, how it took 5 Canal Zone cops to keep him from going after the father of a kid who beat up one of his sons, how he helped his children get jobs, and many more.

Son, brother, U. S. Navy veteran, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and good friend - we'll miss you Mac!
