John Glenn "Johnnie Mac" Mcdaniel

August 4, 1930 — December 30, 2020

Ssgt. John Glenn “Johnnie Mac” McDaniel, USAF was greeted by his Lord and Savior on December 30, 2020. This small town, Southern man lived to be 90 years old.

Johnnie Mac was born August 4, 1930, in Waycross, Georgia and stuck to his hardworking, Southern heritage all of his life. When he was not working, Johnnie Mac’s favorite spots were either a fishing hole or his shop in the backyard where he could be found laboring on woodworking projects. He built shelves, rocking chairs, refinished furniture and made mirrors, just to name a few things.

A kid at heart, Johnnie Mac was a prankster and practical joker, especially when he was around his kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. He was also a motorcycle enthusiast, a hunter and loved riding horses. He was born a Methodist where he was saved by the grace of God but became a Baptist after marrying his wife Joyce Tuten McDaniel. The couple celebrated 66 years of marriage in November. He was a longtime member of Shirley Hills Baptist Church.

Johnnie Mac was preceded in death by his parents, Francis Anthony “F.A.” McDaniel and Nannie Kate Sikes McDaniel, and his brother, Cecil McDaniel.
In addition to his wife, Joyce, Johnnie Mac is survived by his children, Marca Bishop of Hahira, Jeffrey Glenn McDaniel (Brenda) of Lawrenceville, Amy Hudson (Jimmy) of Warner Robins, and Melinda Garrick (Kenneth) of Titus, Alabama; grandchildren, Madison Trotter, Harry Bishop, Adam McDaniel, Matthew McDaniel, Mallory Lima, Cameron McDaniel, Katie Sanders, Sarah Portera, Ellie Sanders, Kasey Garrick; step-grandchildren, Michelle Paterson and Cameron Lair, brother Gene McDaniel, 15 great grandchildren and a joyful uncle to a host of nieces and nephews.
