Amos Mack Sr., (Dad, Pop, Pop), started his journey on Sunday, June 6, 1915, in St. George, South Carolina.  He was the eldest child of Josephine Breaker and Jim Mack.  Much of his earthly life was spent working various jobs on the farm in the South Carolina low country with uncle and grandfather.  He accepted Christ at an early age, and was a member of Good Hope Baptist Church in St. George, SC.  He sang with the Quartet of Gentleman who traveled from church to church every sunday singing God's praises.

Even though he was South Carolina born and bred, Philadelphia would become a special plce to him and the place where he would now put down roots. It was in Philly that he met and married the love of his life, UZ Mattie Mack, whom he affectionately called "C".  From this union, three children were born, Clorise, Amos Jr., and Michelle.

Pop had an infectious personality and those who knew him truly loved him.  He experienced so much in his 102 years of life and we all became beneficiaries of his wisdom and knowledge through his stories and life lessons.

He leaves to cherish his wonderful memory, daughters; Clorise Wynn and Michelle Green; son-in-law, John Green; daughter-in-law, Robin Mack, Gloria Price; goddaughter, Bishop Stephanie B. Green; grandchildren, William Caddell (Jennifer), Jelani Mack, Nicole Jenkins and (Antwan), Melanie Scott (Ashley), Joi Hargust, Tonya Fuller (Dana), Patricia Wynn-Mason, Teisha Wynn Coley (Thomas), Keith Wynn(Donna), Andrea Adams (Victor), Stephanie Nicholson(Kevin) and Patricia Wlilliams; great-grandchildren, Stephanie, Sydney, Morgan, Lelani, Aaron, Amaya, Ava, Alaina, Darius Denum, Jahir, Jihad, Juwan, Jayden, Theo, Camille, Mayvone and John.  Preceding him in death were his daughter, Marylou and a son, Amos, Jr., and his granddaughter, Dajha.  Special friends, Ora Barnes, Trina Barnes, Charlotte Jones, Kim Holland and Esther Vanrandwijk, and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

   Posted Fri November 17, 2017
To the entire family and friends of Mr. Mack: I know that this is a sad time for you, but no matter the age the pain is the same. The bible assures us that God see's our pain and sadness and He made the promise after the original sin that he was going to rid the earth of the enemy that threatens the human family. Revelation 21:4, John 5:28,29 and Psalms 37:10,11,29. May you find comfort during this time of sadness.
