He was born in Louisville, Kentucky on November 29, 1942 to Mack Murray, Sr. and Thelma Delores Parson Pryor. He was a member of Audubon Church of the Nazarene. Mack spent most of his life working in construction, pouring concrete, framing, painting or just about every form of building. He was the ultimate hunter, be it raccoon, deer, rabbit, or squirrel. He loved fishing and his westerns, but would watch “Say yes to the Dress” with Granny. UK Basketball was his sport, even when they weren’t winning. He was not above teaching the grandkids to drink coffee and burp.

Along with his parents he was preceded in death by his wife of 55 years, Patricia Coletta Pryor.
Mack is survived by his sons, Mack “Mark” (Cheryl Judd) Pryor III and Steven (Karen) Pryor, both of Owensboro; his grandchildren, Megan Pryor, Mack Pryor, Chelsey Pryor, and Stephanie Pryor; his great-grandchildren, Renee Pryor, and Travis Pryor; his siblings, Jerry (Diana) Pryor, Robert (Connie) Pryor, Linda (Dale) Hagan, Pat (Tim) Wheatley, Michael (Elaine) Pryor, Bruce (Bobbie) Pryor, Lisa (Frank) Smith; many nieces and nephews; and certainly not least, his best porch sittin’, yard watching, squirrel chasin’ buddy, Sweetie, the dachshund.
