MACKAY, On November 20, 2013, Thomas Mackay, 84, peacefully joined his Eternal sweetheart, Nan and granddaughter, Amanda with their Heavenly Father.
He lived most of his life in the land of his birth, Scotland. He had a great love of the gospel of Jesus Christ and his church family. Thomas had a passion for golf, and sometimes he would say it was a waste of a good walk, but only when he had a bad round.
He has lived in California, Utah, and finally in Ohio.
Tom has lived in Wintersville, OH, for the past two years, where he has made many friends and had the opportunity to get to know his great-grand- children.
Tom is survived by his wife, Jeannine of Texas; daughters and sons-in-law, Moira and Gary Ritchie of Wintersville, OH and Lucy Ella and Paul Gibson Alaska; grandchildren, Wendy, Jennifer, Fionna, Vicki, and Emily; and great grandchildren, Michael, Kaitlyn, Jay, Fiona, Hunter and his youngest, Rusty.
Life is real, life is earnest, and the grave is not its goal; dust thou art to dust returneth was not spoken of the soul (Longfellow).
Reassured by the knowledge that life is eternal, he will be greatly missed by we who must remain.
Friends will be received at the Everhart-Bove Funeral Home, 685 Canton Rd., Wintersville, OH, from 1 p.m. until time of memorial service at 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 23, 2013.
