Obituary

Richard O. “Mack” McDonald, 86

Richard O. “Mack” McDonald, age 86, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 30, 2020, at Brethren Care Village in Ashland.

He was born 1934, in Ashland, to Carl and Lillie (Gerwig) McDonald. He was a 1952 graduate of Ashland High School. He worked at General Motors in Ontario until his 30-year retirement. When not working at General Motors, he owned a large vegetable farm in Nankin providing corn, strawberries, pumpkins, and other vegetables to local grocery stores for over 50 years. Farming to Richard was a way he could connect with his family as well as his community. Richard was a member of First Baptist Church and sang in the choir. He bowled in the local bowling leagues and traveled out west to pheasant hunt with “the guys”. He loved watching the "Cleveland Indians” and was a devoted baseball fan throughout his life, always hoping the Indians would win the “Series”! Richard truly lived life through the simple pleasures, laughing with friends, family dinners, and having coffee at the Lyn-Way.

Richard’s family would like to thank the Health Care Center team at Brethren Care for their excellent attention and care while Richard was a resident.

Richard is survived by his sister, Linda Miller (McDonald); as well as nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother, Carl McDonald Jr.

Funeral services will be held, Friday, November 6, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in the Denbow-Gasche Funeral Home with Reverend John Bouquet officiating. The Ashland Veteran’s Honor Guard will conduct full military honors. Interment will be in Nankin Cemetery. Friends may call one hour prior to the service from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions, Mission to Amish People, 575 US Highway 250. Greenwich, Ohio 44837.

For those who may not be able to attend, online condolences may be shared on the funeral home’s website at denbowfh.com.

Denbow-Gasche Funeral Home & Crematory is handling the arrangements.
