Remembering WWII vet Mac McKean

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Friends and family of Francis “Mac” McKean mourned his passing on Sept. 8, when he died in a Florida nursing home at the age of 101. Mac moved from Machias to Florida in late 2019 to be near his son, Tom McKean, for the winter, and remained there due to the pandemic.

Mac was a local businessman and local legend, the proprietor of Court Street Variety, then of Court Street Plants where his lifelong passion for growing things materialized each spring in the form of geraniums and Big Boy tomato plants.
