There are condolences waiting approval on CLARENCE's Tribute wall
Deacon Clarence Mackall affectionally known as "Man," was born in Huntingtown, MD to the
late Chester Mackall and Sophie Brooks Mackall. He was the second oldest of four brothers
and three sisters. He gently passed from this life with his wife by his side on Saturday morning, November 3, 2018 at his home in Prince Frederick, Maryland.

Clarence also better known to his children and grandkids as 'Pop' grew up on the farm and was educated in the Calvert County Public School System. He met and married Virginia Elizabeth Parker and spent the next 64 years of their life together. He was a devoted husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend. His spiritual buddies were Elder Lowell 'Mickey" Thomas, Brother Irvin Cook, and the late Jessie Chew.

Clarence spent over 22 years employed at the State Highway Administration in Prince Frederick, MD. His supervisor was Elder Charles Hall where he received most of his promotions and safety awards for his excellence and customer service.

During his spare time, he enjoyed working outdoors where he cared for the grounds of his
property with particular care. During his younger years, Clarence and Virginia traveled extensively with church and family. They were known in their younger days for their summer visits to Niagara Falls Canada - traveling with them were Elder "Mickey" and Olivia Thomas, and, Chester and Annie Mackall. They loved to fellowship and often traveled with family throughout the years.

He was a member of Bibleway Church #2 of Prince Frederick MD under the pastorate of the
late Bishop Henry Brown where he served faithfully. He was baptized in Jesus Name and
filled with the gift of the Holy Ghost. He was a scout leader of the Boy Scouts of America at
Bibleway along with Elder Lowell Thomas. Together, they instilled to train youth in character
development, trustworthiness, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities including camping and hiking. Those skills earned their scouts merit badges for service, and demonstration of responsibility.

As the years went by, he became a member of the Mt. Gethsemane Holiness Church under the leadership of Bishop Robert Watts. While serving under Bishop Watts, Clarence was appointed as a Trustee. Later he was appointed as a Deacon. He served faithfully on the Deacon Board and enjoyed reading scripture and faithful fellowship with the saints. His best friend was Brother Irvin Cook where they communicated on a regular basis sharing thy word. He was later appointed as the President of the Usher Board and served faithfully for 14 years
(1995 - 2009) until his illness.

Deacon Clarence was known for speaking the truth from his heart. He will be remembered for
his love of hunting during his younger years, and long discussions with his longtime friend,
Brother Cook. Both sharing their love and care of working outdoors and the word of God! At
the heart of it all was his love for his family. He was a true family man and was an excellent
husband to his wife, father to his children, and affectionately known as 'Pop Pop' to his great- grandchildren. Indeed he believed in taking care of his family including his late brother, Cornelius

Pop was a man not short on his words - he was all about work, even to the point of not easily
excepting retirement - he always wanted to work. When it came to the word of God, he was
faithful and a stickler to the word.

He was a handworker and expected those to follow suite. According to his brothers, he was
always that way where he was nicknamed in his youth, 'superman' and later 'man' - they recalled that he would leave out early in the morning to work. He never complained - he always was tough and instilled in us to work hard with no excuses but remain faithful to God. He was a very determined person, but had a/very kind heart to children who drew to him like magnets. His grandson's remember with glee the many times when they were young and he'd hide from them and then jump out growling which made them yell and run to Mom seeking shelter. She would have a hard look in her eyes telling Pop to stop teasing the kids - but you could tell that she was holding back laughter at yet another side of Pop that we all loved. He enjoyed attending gospel concerts with his daughter Linda and sharing quiet moments with his other daughter Lavenia "Venia" about the word and ushering. He enjoyed long conversations with William "Billy" and Steven "Steve" discussing various topics of interest to them both. Although each family member took care of Pop, special recognition to David who was by his side tendering to the heavy lifting along with Michael who provided personal care along with his other siblings.

He leaves to cherish his memory his loving and faithful wife, Virginia Mackall (Wife), Clarence
Mackall, Jr. (Shirley) of Lusby MD, Albertlee Mackall (Hester) of Lusby MD, Michael
Mackall of North Carolina, William Mackall (Aimee) of North Carolina, Linda Gantt of Waldorf
