Herman "Mac" Gaines McGee

July 12, 1957 — December 21, 2021

Herman Gaines "Mac" McGee, 64, passed away after a brief illness on December 21, 2021 at his residence in Temple, TX. He was born on July 12, 1957 in Clarksdale, MS, the son of Herman Monroe and Ruby (Smith) McGee.

After serving in the Army Reserves, he became active duty in the Army in 1977 and retired as a 1SG in 1996. In the years following, he worked for the Department of Defense as a Quality Assurance Inspector. He worked both overseas and domestically as a soldier and with the DoD. He was the happiest when he was serving his country.

He did not have many hobbies, but he did enjoy hunting and fishing. Another favorite pastime was supporting and often “yelling” at the Dallas Cowboys when they played. He also loved old movies that he watched over and over and over and over.

He married Lea Ann Brasell in Lubbock, TX and she began to follow him on the travels of military life. They celebrated 35 years of marriage together and had four children, 12 grandchildren and one great grandchild with another one on the way.

In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by two brothers, Cecil Monroe McGee and Henry Lee McGee. In addition to his wife, Lea Ann, he is also survived by his two sons, Michael McGee, and his wife, Rachel, of Temple, TX and Nick McGee, and his wife, Donna, of Chula Vista, CA; and his two daughters, Brandy Clark of Dayton, TN and Lorin LeBlanc, and her husband, Chris, of Belton, TX. He is also survived by four sisters, Ruby Cruz-Mills, and her husband, Harvey, of Visalia, CA, Patricia Hays of Visalia, CA, Barbara McGee of Kerman, CA and Shirley Herrod of Oak Ridge, TN.

The next generation of family that he cared for are his grandchildren, Patrick McGee of Visalia, CA, Victoria Ronspiez of Visalia, CA, Brooke Mancill and her husband, Jason, of Knoxville, TN, Bethani Parisi of Dayton, TN, Raina Ross of Temple, TX, Lyza LeBlanc of Belton, TX, Brandin Cooper of Killeen, TX, Aubrey McGee of Chula Vista, CA, Lexi LeBlanc of Belton, TX, Lily LeBlanc of Belton, TX, Finley McGee of Chula Vista, CA and Lindi LeBlanc of Belton, TX.

Last, but certainly not least is his great grandson, Logan Mancill of Knoxville, TN who is soon to be joined by a baby sister.
