Canton – Harold Mack Warren, 89, of the Lake Logan Community, passed away on Thursday, July 21, 2022 at his residence.

Mack was a native and had resided most of his life in Haywood County.  He was a son of the late Garland and Pearl Reece Warren.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers, Claude, G.L., and Grady Warren; and five sisters, Donnie Inman, Genevieve Vance, Tulan Rogers, Bonnie Vance, and Beatrice McFalls.  Mack was a United States Army veteran having served during the Korean Conflict and a member of Riverside Baptist Church.  He was the owner of Superior Barber Shop in Canton from 1964 – 1974 and Warren’s Barber Shop in Bethel until he turned 80 and retired in 2013.  Many will remember Mack for being a barber to the shut ins and residents in nursing homes and hospitals.  He was a farmer, excellent fisherman and a great friend to many dispensing wisdom and counsel to many.  He was Dad to some, Mack to his friends, and “Uncle Mack” to many.
