Tony L. Mack was born Dec. 21, 1966, in St. Marys, to Thomas J. Mack Jr. and Rosella Causer. He attended the schools of Camden County and was a graduate of the Class of 1985. He later attended Savannah State University, and in May 2006 graduated with a degree in chemistry.
Tony felt the need to further his education in spiritual matters and attended Freedom Bible College & Seminary in Savannah until his health began to fail.
Tony was a hard worker and held various positions. He was most recently employed by Securitas Security USA Inc. and was a licensed classroom instructor. He filled the position of branch manager in Pooler.
Tony accepted Christ as his savior on March 18, 1977, at Young Zion Baptist Church under the spiritual leadership of the Rev. J.G. Wright. He was always singing praises to God while in the junior and young adult choirs as well as the male chorus.
One thing Tony had a great love for was directing the choir. He served at Young Zion under the guidance of Pastor Quan D. Glover for many years, prior to moving to Savannah. Tony then joined First African Baptist of East Savannah, under the leadership of his uncle, the Rev. Dr. Thomas E. Williams. His service and dedication to his church was exceptional.
Tony was preceded in death by both maternal and paternal grandparents, Deacon Eldean Sr. and Sister Rosa Lee Williams and Deacon T.J. and Sister Louise Mack; his brother Darrell Way; and his granddaughter, D’Nyaah Ah’Leah-Anne Mack.
