Laurence Jason Mack, 70, of Kalispell, passed away suddenly on May 29, 2020 at North Valley Hospital in Whitefish. Laurence was born to William and Miriam (Fredenberg) Mack on July 23, 1949. He married Jeanette Kelsey in 1973 and together they had three children. He has been married to Marcy Van Alstine since August 1998. He was drafted into the Army and served in the Vietnam War as an MP. He worked at Plum Creek fiberboard for many years and then through the Electrical Union he could no longer work due to his physical disabilities.

Laurence enjoyed hunting, fishing, collecting cars, guns, and knives, but his favorite thing was family get-togethers where there was a lot of chaos and children laughing.

Laurence is preceded in death by his parents William and Miriam (Fredenberg) Mack, his brothers Billy and Ralph Mack, his niece Leah Jones, and numerous other family members.

Laurence is survived by his wife Marcy Mack, his daughter Jennifer (Curtis) Skelton; son John Mack and his girlfriend Amanda Dusek; daughter Jessica (Jason) Lesker; his grandchildren Devan, Kendra, Kylee, and Kierstyn Skelton, Trevor Mack, Xander, Ashton, and Grayson Lesker; his great-grandson Owsley Flatt; his step-children, Derek Williams, Stacie (Bo) Alsup, and Megan (Dex) Hardy; and his step-grandchildren, Mackenzie McClain, Kayla and Gabriel Williams, Andi Rae Alsup, Tucker Morgan, and Dayton Hardy.

There will be a celebration of life with military honors and a pot luck for Laurence at Birch Grove Community Center on June 20, 2020 at 1 p.m.
