Mackie Lee 'Mac' Harman, age 76, of Daniel Boone Drive, Boone, passed away Monday, June 6, 2022 at Watauga Medical Center. Born February 8, 1946 in Cherokee County, NC, Mac was the son of Lonnie Charles and Oma Lee Patterson Harman.
Mr. Harman served for four years in the US Air Force as a mechanic crew chief with the rank of Sergeant, working primarily on F-4 fighter jets. Whatever he was doing, it was always with a sense of wit and humor that only he possessed. As a young man, he enjoyed racing stock cars on figure eight race tracks and drag racing. He was always ready to repair a car engine or a small appliance. Mac loved gardening, fishing, riding the Harley-Davidson motorcycle that he built from scratch; the beach and deep sea fishing. But most of all, he loved spending time with his family.
Mr. Harman is survived by his wife, Maria A. Harman; children, Michael Dale Harman of Boone, Theresa Bishop and husband, Floyd, of Charlotte, Charles Joseph Harman of Boone, Shanon Canuto and husband, Dennis, of Waxhaw, and Heather Seddon and husband, Paul, of Matthews; eight grandchildren, Alex Spellman Harman and wife, Jessica, of Raleigh, Megan Harman and husband, Dillan, of Yadkinville, Bianca and Blake Bishop, both of Charlotte, Wilamina McCord of Waxhaw, Sophia and Simon Seddan, both of Matthews, and Alyssa Canuto of Waxhaw; three great-grandchildren, Makinley and Marley Harman and Mason Harman; and two sisters, Louise Ward and husband, Tommy Joe, of Sugar Grove, and Glenda Bentley and husband, Dexter, of Foscoe. A number of nieces and nephews also survive.
