I write this years later, I thought of Lt. MACKAN last night and thought I would look him up on line, I was very sad to learn of his passing. I served with him on Diego Garcia and with him in NMCB-133 at Gulfport, Ms. I have fond memories of "Mad dog" as we called him and I express my greatest sorry at not getting in touch with him sooner. To his family I express my deepest condolences.

Knew Mike since we were children, grew up on same street, same classes as young Catholic kids. Great guy. My first gift from a young man (in our pre-teen years) was a box of chocolate covered cherries for Valentine's Day from Mike! Many good memories always. God Bless as you rest in peace with your Dad and Sister.

Mike was a great mentor, teacher, and above all, friend. He helped me get into residency and get through it. Of course, he got me hooked to the Kentucky Derby as well! He will be truly missed and I will always remember him.

It's been over 30 years since Dr. Mike Mackan taught me in the emergency room, first as a medical student, then a resident. I remember his kindness, patience and thoroughness with both his patient care and teaching --no matter how crazy or hectic the ER was. It was a privilege to know and work with him. Please accept my deepest sympathies on your loss.

I worked with Mike from the time he returned from the Navy until he retired. He was a great colleague and friend. I remember him as a very compassionate physician who always developed an amazing rapport with his patients. He also had an amazing ability to memorize medical facts & differential diagnoses. We had great times together tailgating at the OSU games. He is truly missed. I had the pleasure of working with Michael as a nurse in the ED.

I had the joy of working with Mike throughout his residency and as an attending in the ER at ACH. He was clearly one of the best ER physicians I have known. He will be and has been missed. I am sorry for your loss.

Mike was such a dear friend, so kind and thoughtful. The last time we "hung out" together was at Mitch's Lounge on Exchange st. We've thought about him so often the past few years. We really miss him.
