Mostly cloudy

George Herbert Mack III

George Herbert Mack III “Herb”, 64, of Medina and Columbus, was called Home to our Lord on Tuesday December 4, 2012. He was born June 2, 1948 in Columbus, to the late Doctor David Slocum and Donna Louise (Acheson) Mack.

Herb has the distinction of being the youngest appointed District Deputy Director of the Ohio Department of Transportation, District 6, of Franklin County, and of designing the Broad Street Bridge in Columbus, and of holding the record for the discus throw for well over a decade from his high school alma matter, Medina Senior High School. Herb was also active in, and president of, the Young Republicans Club in Columbus, for many years.

Herb graduated Medina Senior High School in 1966 and went on to graduate as a Civil Engineer from Ohio Northern University in 1971.

Herb worked for the Ohio Department of Transportation for many years, eventually going into the private sector, working at Burgess & Niple in Columbus.

Herb suffered an injury six years ago, and although his journey from that point on has been difficult, he never lost his sense of humor, nor failed to positively touch the lives of those he encountered. Everyone loved Herb; his entire life was a testimony of the goodness of God, for he was an uncommonly kind, thoughtful, loving, generous, and intelligent man. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Herb is the beloved brother of John Keller Mack II and Meri Ann Mack-Davis; beloved uncle of David Mack and Miranda Acheson Davis; beloved brother-in-law to Carol Lee (Marcellus) Mack; and beloved and dear friend to countless others.

A party to celebrate Herb’s life will be held at a later date.

Donations may be made to Medina County Park District 6364 Deerview Lane, Medina, OH 44256. Please note: in memory of George (Herb) Mack III.
