Obituary for Michael John Macchiaverna

Michael John Macchiaverna, Sr. “Mack” of Reedsville, passed away at his home, surrounded by his family on Thursday, September 6, 2018.
Mack was born in Danbury, Connecticut on July 31, 1951, a son of Patrick and Annice Romanowicz Macchiaverna. He married Kathy Waddell on June 19, 1976.
He is survived by his wife Kathy, a son Michael Jr, wife Amy and daughter Emma Kate Macchiaverna of Nashville, TN; a daughter Ann, husband Jared, and sons Gabriel and Greyson Getz of Reedsville; a daughter Traci Macchiaverna of Wyomissing; a son, Patrick and wife Rachel Macchiaverna of Nashville, TN; a daughter Amy and husband Mychal Ragland of Pittsburgh; their “Brooklyn, NY son”, John and wife Amy Feldmann of Royersford; sisters Clara and Patricia Macchiaverna, and Marlana Martin of Danbury, CT along with 7 nieces.
Mack was preceded in death by his parents, two twin infant sons, and a sister, Joyce Schultz.
Mack attended Salem College in West Virginia and began his teaching and coaching career that spanned 34 years. The passion he had for teaching and coaching has touched the lives of many in Mifflin County. He had a tremendous work ethic that he passed on to all of those he mentored in the classroom as well as those on and off the playing field. Those who knew Mack know he was an avid horse racing fan and cherished many years of meeting his friends and family at the Kentucky races every year. Above all, Mack’s dedication and love for his family was always most important and will forever be carried on in their hearts.
A memorial service will be held at 6:00 p.m. at Kish Valley Grace Brethren Church, 99 Taylor Dr., Reedsville on Wednesday September 12, 2018, with Pastor Doug Saban officiating. The family will receive friends from 4:30 p.m. until time of service at the church.
Arrangements are under the care of The Barr Funeral Home Inc. and Crematory, 120 Logan Street, Lewistown.
Mack desired that if anyone wished to honor his name that they donate blood, or have contributions be made to the Hope Lodge, 125 Lucy Ave., Hummelstown, PA 17036 where he resided with his wife during his treatments for the past 8 months.
