Aug. 13, 1926 – July 13, 2014

Shirley T. “Mac” McFadden passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, July 13, 2014, after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was born in Nelson County, Va., on Aug. 13, 1926, to Mary Alice (Jennings) and Otha McFadden.

Mac retired as a senior master sergeant from the United States Air Force in 1965, after 21 years of dedicated service. He was a firefighter and served as fire chief during his final tour of duty in Bitburg, Germany.

Mac was a fine auto mechanic and enjoyed tinkering in his garage. He was a self-taught guitar player and often strummed old country classics.

Mac is survived by his wife, Marcella McFadden; their nine children, Kathleen (Vernon) Hague, Shirley Ann (Dave) Scrivner, Janet (Dennis) Retzloff, Nancy (Steve) Aldrich, Mary Jane McFadden, JoAnn (Bob) Perrin, Daniel McFadden, John McFadden and Deborah McFadden; and three sisters in Virginia, Eliza, Elsie and Ella. Mac was a proud grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather.

He was grateful for long and caring friendships. He strived to be fair in all his actions during his lifetime and is missed by his family and friends.

A committal and honors service were held Tuesday, July 22, 2014, at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon.

The family asks that no flowers be sent.

Arrangements under the care of Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, 707-425-4697, www.bryanbraker.com.

    So very sorry for your loss, I so loved Mac he was a wonderful man, he watched me grow up and then watched our son grow up. When we moved it broke my heart to leave and say goodbye. He was truly the best of the best. When Rocky was out working on a car Mac would always wander over and help. Please know we will carry him in our hearts forever. Vicky and Rocky Traylor

    My heart goes out to all of you. I have always looked for him on the porch every time that I drive down our street. May he rest in peace.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know Mac was well loved. I too have memories of him sitting out in front of the house while growing up across the street and always taking an interest in what us kids were doing.
