James W. “Mac” McConnell, III., age 70, passed away January 10, 2021, at his home.
Mac was born on June 23, 1950. He made his career in the dry cleaning business, locally. He also enjoyed Maine lobster and regular visits to the coast. Mac was an avid fan of the KU Jayhawks and may have single-handedly kept Eddie Bauer in business.
He is survived by his sisters, Mary McConnell Hudson, Cicely “Sam” (Ron) Teson, Melissa McConnell, and Bunny (Michael) Madden. He was an adoring uncle to his nephews and nieces, Beau (Diana) Hudson and their daughter, Crosby, Ali (Josh) Brueggen, and their children, Kendal and Brady, Christi (Damian) Schreffler, and their children, Braydon, Noah, and Leah, Nicole (Michael) Hackman and their son, Jacob, and Anthony Madden.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a contribution to a charity of your choice, in Mac’s name. Private services will be held on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
