Celebration of His Life
Sunday July 12 * 4:00
United Methodist Church
1001 Holden Avenue in Big Bear City
Mr. & Mrs. Mac McHardy
Long-time resident of Big Bear Lake, ‘Mac’
McHardy passed away peacefully, May 15th, 2015. Alexander ‘Mac’ McHardy was born
October 9, 1928 in Detroit, Michigan. After
serving four years in the United States Air Force, Mac returned to civilian
life in California, where he worked for ABC Radio.
While on vacation in Rome, Italy in 1974,
Mac met his future wife. Mac and Susan were married six months later, April 6,
1975. The McHardy’s became residents of Big
Bear Lake on their second year anniversary. Over the years Mac and Susan became
a well-known team in the local real estate industry from which Mac retired in
2006, but supported his wife who is with ReMax of Big Bear Lake, today.
Mac’s interests and talents were many and
varied. He always enjoyed an invigorating game of golf but the tranquility while
drawing and painting was a favorite, as well. Other more strenuous activities of
Mac’s were hunting, water and snow skiing and dirt-biking.
But his greatest passion was traveling with
Susan and they truly travelled the world. Mac’s life was a life well lived, with
the major time of a long and happy marriage. The McHardy’s recently celebrated
40 wonderful years together.
Susan McHardy comments “We wish to thank
Mark Kaliher, the nurses and the staff at Bear Valley Community Hospital for
their care and kindness to us during the difficult last year of Mac’s illness.”
‘Mac’ McHardy will be so missed by his
many friends and colleagues in Big Bear Valley. Survived by his wife Susan, Mac
leaves his sister Sally McNutt of Shalimar, Florida.
A ‘Celebration of Life’ will be held Sunday
July 12, 2015, 4:00 P.M. at the United Methodist Church located at 1001 Holden
Avenue (east of Division on the northwest corner of North Shore Drive) in Big
