William R. (Mac) Mcnutt

February 8, 1938 — September 1, 2022

William R. (Mac) McNutt age 84 of Maryville passed away on September 1, 2022. Mac is preceded in death by his wife of 62 years Gayle Holloway McNutt, son Jeffrey R. McNutt, and parents Mr. and Mrs. Hugh T. McNutt.

Survivors include daughter Melissa McNutt Click (Rick), sons Tim McNutt (Rhonda Tindell) and Steven McNutt (Shawn McCormick), and grandsons Brandon Crabtree, Nicolas Crabtree, Jacob Click and Isaac Crisp.

Mac was an MHS graduate as were his wife and children, and he attended Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville. In addition to owning many businesses including McNutt Chrysler Plymouth Dodge, McNutt Good Times Kawasaki Yamaha, Knoxville Kawasaki BMW Suzuki, and the Mountain View Stables located on his farm in west Maryville, Mac was also an avid hiker and volunteer for the Appalachian Trail Maintainers.

After retirement, Mac was a constant presence on his beloved family farm, where he had been raised since childhood. He could always be seen moving horses, talking to clients who board in his stables, or on a favorite John Deere for his almost daily duties mowing.

The family offers special thanks to friend and care giver Tracy Gregory, who cared for Mac’s wife Gayle until her death in March and remained as a constant companion and helper to Mac and his family.

Please join us as we celebrate Mac’s life the way he would have wanted.

The Celebration of Life will be held on Friday Sept 16, 2022, from 6pm-9pm @ The Showroom at Five Points, 1529 East Broadway, Maryville. This venue is dear to the family as it was once the location of McNutt Motor Co.
