ISEA Organist, Mac McCluey passes away


On June 7th, 2011 Elkdom lost one of its most cherished members Mac McCluey. Mac exemplified what Elkdom is all about. He was Veteran's Committee Chairman for more years than most can remember and the winner of many awards for this. He was our Lodge Organist and State Organist. Mac traveled around playing for many Assisted Living facilities and was a regular at the State Veteran's Home. Mac was a Honorary Life Member. He was a 60 year member of Boise Lodge #310 initiated in 1951. Mac was inducted into the Idaho Elks Hall of Honor in 1999. Mac was in charge of Flag Day for the Lodge for many years and took great pride in that. His day to be laid to rest is June 14th Flag Day. This is so appropriate for one of the most patriotic men I have ever known. I will remember Mac most playing the organ for members at the lodge meetings and for the youth at so many lodge functions. Mac we salute you and your name will be on all our Tablets of Love and Memory. Mac most of all you will be remembered as a dear friend.
