At 18 Mack served as a Switchboard Operator in the Field Artillery at Fort Lewis, Washington. After three years in the Army, Mack attended Los Angeles Bible Institute, where he became a dedicated student of the Bible, and his love for the Scriptures became a life time adventure.

Mack also attended Lamar University Technology in Beaumont, Texas and received Certifications in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Electrical Technology. In 1959 Mack started a Home Building Business in Nederland. In 1965 he moved his family to Longview, Texas, where he and his wife spent many years in the building business.

They always felt Longview had been kind, in a unique way of life for them, in this area.
