Kenneth R. Macks • September 20, 2021



Kenneth R. Macks, age 83, passed away at his home on Monday, September 20, 2021.

He leaves behind his wife Norma, of thirty years; his four children, Sharroll (Paul) Fanslau of Pembroke, GA, Douglas (Rebecca) Macks of Kissimmee, FL, Tracey (Robert) Nelson of Richmond Hill, GA, Andrew (Jennifer) Macks of Billings, MT; and one step-son, Gibson (Tammy) Riggins of Fairburn, GA.
Also surviving are his two sisters, Ruth Barron and Deloris Perry both of Cantonment, Fl. Kenneth also leaves behind thirteen grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and many nephews and nieces, all whom he loved very much. Kenneth was preceded in death by his parents, Andrew and Martha Macks; five brothers; and one sister.

Kenneth served in the US Army from 1961 to 1963 and was a member of Graceway Baptist Church.
He was a proud member of Masonic Lodge #17 and retired from IBEW Local #1547, both located in Anchorage, AK and a proud member of Ensley Chapter #244 Order of the Eastern Star. After spending the last eight years of his career living in an RV with Norma, finishing many jobs all over the state of Alaska, Kenneth retired in 2000. After his retirement, he returned home to Pensacola, where he continued his love of driving big rigs until retiring from trucking in 2018.

Kenneth enjoyed traveling with Norma in their RV, and visiting with his family and many friends all over the country, but most of all he loved spending time with his grandchildren every chance he got. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were everything to him.
Kenneth also loved spending time in his yard and helping others, and died doing what he loved; working and helping others.
Kenneth will be missed terribly by all who loved and knew him, and will always hold a special place in our hearts, he left a legacy like no other.

Special thank you to local Masonic Lodge #278 for administering Kenneth’s masonic funeral rites.
