Major (Retired) Verable Lancaster (Mac) McCloud passed away at Banner University Medical Center, Tucson, Arizona, on September 30, 2017. He was born on August 4, 1931, the ninth of 12 children, to Mr. & Mrs. Willie McCloud (deceased) of Mt Airy, NC.

During his tenure in the military he received honors from the Officers of III DAC Bien Hoa Vietnam, the officers and men of Advisory Team 95 in Vietnam, and an award, “ Victory by Valor” from the 20th Tactical Fighter Wing. He retired from the Strategic Air Command (SAC) in Omaha, NE in 1977.

He held several board positions with the Omaha YMCA, the Omaha Boys Club, and the Rockbridge Virginia Mental Health Association. After finally retiring he moved to Tucson, AZ in 1999 where he was a member of the Casa Adobes Congregational Church.
