He graduated from Central High School and attended Oklahoma A&M before entering the military.

He opened McClung Upholstery Company, then worked at Sears & Roebuck where he was a drapery workroom supervisor and service technician. Retiring in 1980, he enjoyed many years of travel and adventures with his wife, Helen. He loved to fish, spend time with his family, and there wasn't a Crypto-quote puzzle he couldn't solve.

He is survived by his wife, Helen; his son Mark with wife Teri; his daughter Clara Terranova with husband Peter; his sister Dalena Wakelee; two grandsons, Jonah with wife Amanda, and Lucas McClung; two granddaughters, Rachel and Emily Terranova; and three great-grandsons, Shane, Kade, and Kody McClung, all of Oklahoma City.
Mac will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him. He was a great example of both husband and father as anyone could find. The family would like the thank the staff of the Oklahoma Heart Hospital for the kindness and dedicated care they took of Mac.
