Mike was a proud Monterey Plainsman and Red Raider, where tales of his otherworldly speed on the track are still told. While Mike gave his love freely to everyone he met, Julie Hall McCasland was his world, and he married the love of his life on December 15, 1973, in Lubbock. Mac mirrored the unwavering love and selfless care that he had for Julie in each of his three children; Brooke (Savage), Brice (McCasland), and Blessing (Kihlthau). Mike was a tireless giver, example, and friend to anyone that knew him. The love that he had for his family and others was seen in everything he took part in; from his service in the AMBUCS, during his time as President of Lubbock Cooper School Board, and as the owner of Quest and Sons. Whether it was business or pleasure, Mac lived by a credo of “if you are going to do something, do it right,” and it was evidenced in everything the man did. The legacy that Mike leaves behind is a testament to his pursuit of God and his efforts to show Jesus’ love in everything he could. The passion that Mac had for life was not a quiet thing, but something vibrant, living, and beautiful. While Mac has headed home, his legacy and character live on in his wife Julie; their children, Brooke (David) Savage, Brice (Katie) McCasland, Blessing (Phil) Kihlthau; his grandchildren, Luke, Ryan, and Noah Savage, Harper and Norah McCasland, Truitt and Levi Kihlthau; and sister Gingah (Ralph) Williamson.
