Mass of Christian Burial
Mac was like a second father to me, in fact, I met the Mac through my Dad. My Dad was IPD officer and usually, the press and police don't see eye to eye. My Dad always said Mac was a straight shooter and wasn't into getting headlines, but telling the truth. Mac's son Tim and I ended up going to the same school and became life long friends. Mac kept the score at our little league games and was always there with positive comments and relaxing you with his quick wit. Over the 50 years, I knew Mac and spent holidays, weddings, cutting fish at St Chris, racing events, funerals and everyday events I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. When I think of Mac it's not all the funny things he said, he led with his actions. I know Role model is often overused today, but Mac was one to me. He really made a difference in my life and there will never be a day when I won't draw on his humble guidance.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It appears he lived a long and active life. Remember the good times and celebrate his long life with all of you. May the time together grieving and celebrating his life go well.
Meredith and Patty.
Blessings to the family of Mac Trusnik. I worked with Mac at the cop shop for the Indianapolis News for a short time after he returned from Korean War service. In fact he succeeded me, and apparently got along well with Homer ? who had covered that beat for ages. I moved to the courthouse beat but then moved on to other papers later in the 1950s. Sorry for the loss of Mac who was a first-class journalist.
Looking back, I see a devoted and generous brother, spouse, father, grandfather, godfather, uncle, and parishioner, from news reporting to fishing to baseball to cartoons and to wisecracks, who was one of a kind, a genuine family man and a warm-hearted, good person who lived a full life -- "a great guy." He sure was.
With prayers every day...
To the Trusnik family. My Deepest sympathy goes out to you. Have very fond memories of his coaching days of the old Briskey softball team and of course the night before the 500 partys in the alley. RIP Mac.. you will be missed by all. Larry McHenry
