Silent Servant: Dr. Mack Hill

Silent Servant: Dr. Mack Hill

Described as an exceptionally gentle, generous and kind man by those who know him, Dr. Mack Hill, McKinney’s original pediatrician, has dedicated a lifetime to serving others.

“As one of the first pediatricians in Collin County, if not the first, he’s taken care of lots of babies, many of whom still remember him fondly,” says the Rev. Neill Grimes, of McKinney’s First Christian Church, where Dr. Hill is an active member, and church historian.

“Mack and his late wife Anne were here when I came [to McKinney] in 1999,” says Grimes, “They were and are woven into the fabric of this community.”

According to Grimes, Dr. Hill has served in numerous capacities through the years, from serving as an Elder, to teaching and leading small groups, to opening his home for fellowship and fun.

“Mack is incredibly hospitable and generous in spirit,” says Grimes, “It’s not uncommon for Mack to slip in and pick up alter flowers after services, and take them to someone in need at the hospital, or in need of a pick up or visit.”

In addition to service to his church, Dr. Hill has dedicated years of service to both civic and medical organizations as well.

“He is a true southern gentleman,” says retired nurse and fellow congregant Dot Crosswhite, “I got to know him in the 60’s. [At the hospital] he was always smiling and in a good humor, and whistling, and he was always so eager to help anybody with anything.”

“He’s just so friendly,” says Crosswhite, “He is one of the greatest.”

Town Square Buzz agrees that Dr. Hill is indeed one of the greatest. For a lifetime of dedicated service to the people, places and organizations that make our community a better place to be, on behalf of Town Square Buzz, we thank you Dr. Hill.
