"Mack" fell in love and married Kathe Lee Edwards in Lubbock, Texas on September 19, 1936. To this union were born 2 beautiful daughters. Mack and the family packed up & moved to California when the girls were just young. Mack was a Master machinist and one of the strongest men I have ever known. Mack could place one hand atop the other on a large pole and lift his body straight out without cracking a sweat. Mack loved racing Midgets and all that he raced, he built with the help of a select few friends. Mack holds the track record in Lemoore, California under his nickname "Go Go Grandpa". You see Mack wasn't a young man when he was winning all those races and he was a grandpa. Mack still had the reflexes of a young man and was a "natural" when it came to racing. His beloved Kathe, known to most by "Granny" never missed a race. Mack and Kathe had a special love, one that kept them together until that fateful night when his aorta blew out, killing him instantly while he slept next to his beloved wife. Mack was a very spry 53 year old with great good looks and personality plus;) I was only 9 when Mack took the hand of Jesus, but in my heart Mack will always be my first love. I loved Mack Presley for 5 short years, but I still cry when I think of him not being here.
Kathe came to live with my family after Mack's tragic death. Granny lived in a beautiful mobil home in our back yard for many years and worked for a monument company across the street from my parent's, whom ran the cemetery. My Dad was Mack's best friend, so my Dad wasn't about to leave Mack's wife without means;)
You are greatly missed by the little girl that followed you around race after race & spent weekends at your house. You are missed by your beloved Kathe, your daughters, grandsons & friends.
