    Just saw Fantastic Beasts, the new Harry Potter universe movie, and was surprised by how much the ‘nomag’ looked like him. That is how I came across this page. As someone has already posted, it really did seem that he was in all of the popular shows in the later 70s and throughout the 80s.
    Just sad that he was taken so relatively young. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and freinds. Gob Bless

  2. I just watched the Magnum PI episode where Magnum thinks he sees Mac only to find him and find out he’s a con man who looks like Mac, or did he only look like him? Anyways one of my all time favorite shows and I only found out now that Jeff Mackay is gone, so sad. Goodbye Mac

      That was season 5, episode 2: “Mac’s Back.” One of my favorite episodes. It’s hard to believe Jeff passed 8 years ago, next month, on August 22, of liver failure. He is truly missed.

    Loved Mac as Magnum’s good friend. Thought of him today, because I saw him in All the President’s Men. Thanks for the memories, Mac!

    You are the best Mac! Can’t watch Magnum without wishing you were here.
