Brinley “Mac” McDanel
US Navy Captain Brinley Kent “Mac” McDanel died of natural causes in Elizabeth City, NC August 17, 2023. He was first in command of a successful, interesting, and challenging life for 83 years. Though quiet and unassuming Mac’s presence in the many church and community groups he served was undeniable. Mac’s survivors include the unwavering love of his life, Ann McDanel of the Southern Shores residence; three children, Kim, John, and Megan; four grandchildren; and host of other relatives and friends near and far.
Mac’s directives for cremation will be honored. A full obituary and plans for a memorial are pending at this time. In lieu of flowers or food, Ann asks only that Mac’s memory be saluted by performing an act of kindness for someone in need. Ann and the family are together in private time for the next several weeks and appreciate your prayers.
