I fondly remember “bobo” helping him clean Slater swimming pool. He slipped and hit his head on the floor and was sliding towards the water. I pulled him back and helped him up. He never remembered it.

Remember Mr. McMakin from our days at Blue Ridge High School. Still remember when he entered the classroom, we would wait for him to speak to see what kind of mood he was in! Really good teacher and coach. My condolences to his family..

To Mr. McMakin's family. He was my physical ed teacher and was my coach me in two sports for 2 years.
I liked all my teachers, but Mr. McMakin will always stand out as one of the most, if not the most, respectful
men I have ever known. Loved seeing him at a couple of the Blue Ridge class of '60 reunions.

Coach Mac was my football coach with Coach Liston at Blue Ridge High School. One memory, when I pulled a muscle playing ball, was when Coach Mac found some strong liniment that didn’t start burning until I left the locker room and looked back and saw Coach Mac just a grinning.
