Mack was a loving brother. He was a great family man and a good dancer. We very much appreciated his visits with us in the State of Washington along with other family members where we enjoyed a trip to Mt St Helens and saw many elk.

Rest in peace. You will be greatly missed.

Buford, Molly, and Family

Mack was one of the most tender hearted, gentle, caring, giving men I have ever known. I met him while fishing at Norton Reservoir with his wife, Dorothy. A finer couple you could never find. Mack would drop whatever he was doing to help me. He never spoke ill of anyone. It was a joy fishing with him. I’ll miss his smile and laugh.

A finer man has not walked on this earth than Mack Counts. Mack was a very important part of our family and was always ready to help in any way he could. I don't know of anyone that touched more peoples lives than he did, and in a positive way. He is the only man I know that no one ever had anything bad to say about. We will greatly miss him and will never forget him. So sorry to the family, as much as we will miss him, I know you all will miss him more.
Allen and Linda Yates

Dear Dorothy, Tina, Keith and extended family, May our precious Lord provide love, comfort and healing to all. Seems like Mack was always happy. His presence always had a positive effect in all interactions. I remember being in his company back in the 50's. He was the same then as always. His presence was always welcome. Mack was steady in all weathers. He was and will forever be a treasure to those of us having the privilege of knowing him and his precious family. Damon, Bobbi and family
