Winston S. McAdoo of Peachtree City

Winston S. McAdoo (known to many as Mr. Mac) passed on peacefully at home Friday, November 8th, surrounded by his family.

Born in St. Louis, Mo., and formerly from Darien, Conn., and Barrington, Ill., Mac lived in Peachtree City for the last 10 years.

He was preceded in death by his dear wife of 58 years, Pearl Sidenius McAdoo.

Mac is survived by sons David and wife Susan from White Pine, Tenn., Richard and wife Jean from Fayetteville, Ga., and a daughter, Barbara McAdoo Gahlon and husband James of St. Paul, Minn., four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

He was a retired Certified Public Accountant with national and international experience and over three decades as a consultant and president of Darien Associates in Connecticut. He graduated from Southern Illinois University and earned his CPA from Northwestern University in Chicago, Ill.

Mac was a member of First Church Christ, Scientist, in Fayetteville, having been active in the Christian Science faith since his early teens. All that knew him were aware that what Mac cherished most was his church, his family and the St. Louis Cardinals.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to First Church Christ, Scientist (P.O. Box 142007, Fayetteville, Ga. 30214), the Southern Illinois University Foundation (, or a community service organization of your choice.

The family gathered for a private memorial service honoring their father and grandfather.
