Obituary for Ricky L. "Rick" Mackey

Ricky (Rick) Lee Mackey of Mercersburg, PA passed away peacefully after a brief illness on December 9, 2018 at the Chambersburg Hospital.
Born on June 16, 1957 to Theodore and Mabel (Patterson) Mackey of Chambersburg, Rick spent his youth in Edenville, PA. He was a 1975 graduate of James Buchanan High School and continued his education at Juniata College, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1979.
In Rick’s early career, he was employed by the Harrisburg School System and as store manager for Endicott Shoe Company . He then returned to Edenville and helped with the family orchard business. His love of cooking brought him to Foot of the Mountain Restaurant in Mercersburg where he dedicated over 30 years of his life as second shift supervisor and grill cook.
Rick was always there for family and friends in their time of need. He was a constant care giver for his father until his father’s passing. Rick was a great story teller, loved old movies and was quick to answer any trivia question. He loved to sing old classics and share homemade goodies with friends and coworkers. He will be lovingly missed by family, friends, coworkers and long time patrons of the Foot of the Mountain.
He was preceded in death by both parents, a brother Kenneth (Skip) Mackey, a sister Doris (Mackey) Flory and her husband, Robert (Bob) Flory. He is survived by an older brother Theodore Mackey of Neenah, WI, an older sister Karen (Mackey) Johnson of Chambersburg, Pa, five nieces and four nephews.
A gathering for family and friends will be held at Foot of the Mountain Restaurant from 5pm-7pm January 21, 2019 to celebrate the blessings Rick brought to our lives.
Thank you to the staff at the Chambersburg Hospital for all the support given to family and friends. The family has entrusted Rick's care to Kelso-Cornelius Funeral Home in McConnellsburg, PA. Online condolences may be expressed at
