on ‘Mac’ McCoy, age 72, of Southeast Portland, died Sept. 19, 2012 following a stroke after an all too short battle with cancer.
Born in Corvallis, Ore. on Sept. 24, 1939, Myron spent his early years living as the brother of 12 siblings in Prineville. As a resident of SE Portland for over 40 years, he sought ways to serve his neighbors and connect with his community.
Myron worked at Mail-Well Envelope Company in Milwaukie, Ore. for well over 30 years. He also had his own upholstery business, was an orderly, drove an ambulance and sold shoes in his youth.
Mac was a 'Rambler Man', collecting and restoring several classic Ramblers which he often entered in shows and drove in parades. He sold parts to people all over the world and was always interested in helping others restore their own Ramblers.
Most important to Mac was his family. He is survived by his wife Julie, his sons Mike and Ken, and his daughter Kate. He has several grandchildren, the youngest four of whom he liked to call his 'Future Miss Americas'.
Above all, Mac lived life selflessly and was known by all who knew him as a good man.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Signature Hospice House in Beaverton, Oregon. A private memorial service for family will be held in Prineville on Saturday, October 6th.
