We know you will be riding with the winning jockeys at the Kentucky Derby, pushing the Brown forward for a win and most of all watching over OSU. When Jim stuffs the pepper jars he will look up and say Mike I need your help. Will miss your smile and witty ways. Had great times with you at our camper. Jim & Paula Halas

I HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH "MACK" IN THE E.R. AT CITY HOSPITAL SEVERAL YEARS AGO AS A RED CROSS VOLUNTEER. HE WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON, AND VERY CARING. HE WAS BLESSED WITH THE GIFT OF HEALING, AND TOUCHED MORE PEOPLE THAN HE EVER KNEW. "MACK" WILL ALWAYS HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART AS THE GUY WHO TOOK TIME TO MAKE A DIFFERANCE. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO HIS FAMILY AND LOVED ONES.

To Dr. Mackan's Family, I had the privilege of working with Dr. Mackan when he first started working at Akron City Hospital ED. He was always kind, caring and compassionate to all of us: patients, coworkers and those fortunate to be in his care during their ED visits. He saved my husband's life when he was having a major heart attack. We think the world of him. He will be missed. In sympathy and friendship, Marvin and Diana

I met Mike in 1978 when he returned to ACH from the Navy and I had just finished my medical residency. I worked with him for a year in the ED and later through the years as colleagues in the medical community. His abilities to rapidly assess and treat a patient were uncanny. He left a huge footprint on this earth and will remain an inspiration to all who knew him for his abilities and his humanity.

Megan and Bethany- I spoke with my mom today and she told me about the passing of your dad. I wanted to tell you both how sorry I am for your loss. Your dad was a great guy and will be deeply missed by many. I still remember all of the fun things your dad did with us when we were kids….the Billy Idol concert, Geauga Lake, Cedar Point, etc. I hope you both are able to focus on all

I knew Mike when I worked at City Hospital with the Media Services Dept. He was a great teacher and always loved his ER work. He was a good friend to all of us both at work and socially. My deepest condolensces to his family. It is unfair to lose someone who made this world a better place.

Dr Mackan was a great supporter for the American Heart Association. He was always working on educating the EMS system. I will also remember him for his friendly personality and his love of Ohio State football! He will be missed!

Mike, the first time I met you @ City hospital I couldn't get over how friendly you were. Since that was my first day on the job I was nervous but you put me at ease. You went on to dazzle me with your brilliance through the years. You will be missed by all. Remembering you fondly.
