Obituary

edit

Mac worked as Senior Counselor, for SATP department, for the prison system at the Central unit from April 1, 1985 to Oct. 28, 1994.

Promoted to Regional Director of SATP, where he worked tirelessly up until his suicide on Jan. 15, 1995.
I too, was very disallusioned with the prison system, that chose to just "sweep it under the rug", and by it I mean Mac's suicide. He had been sober for over twenty years. That month we had a quarterly meeting at Jester I, Richmond, TX. No one even mentioned his name! He was supposed to lead that meeting! Needless to say I was pissed. Someone asked me if I was alright, and I answered, "Hell, no I am not OK!" Mac suffered and died, and not one person even acted like they missed him.

I knew that no one cared about the inmates, but after that I realized that they didn't care about us dedicated employees either. I left that dysfunctional system in 1996, after five years of dedicated, hard work trying to help alcoholics and addicts begin their road to recovery. God never gives up on us, even when we do. RIP Mike!
