After serving in the Army during World War II, he returned home to complete a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy at Alabama Polytechnic Institute, now known as Auburn University.
He began work as a pharmacist at Prattville Drug where he met his future wife, Louise. After their marriage, they moved to Fort Deposit. In November 1956, Mack and Louise relocated to Tallassee and opened Jordanville Pharmacy which later became known as Center Drug. He continued practicing as a pharmacist until his retirement in April 1989.
He loved his family and committed his life to serving others. Church was a vitally important aspect of his life where he served as song leader, deacon, secretary of treasury and Sunday School teacher.
In his spare time, he enjoyed wood working and attending the sporting events of his children and grandchildren.
Mack epitomized the love of a Christian husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He instilled Christian principles which are evident even in the lives of his great grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sarah Louise Carter Browder and two daughters, Kathy Hardy and Ramona Lazenby, son-in-law John Lazenby, four grandchildren; Alison Cali (Joseph), Matthew Lazenby (Mehgan), Emily Cason (Ben) and Brittany Morgan (Jonathan), and six great grandchildren.
