A former U.S. Navy SEAL who became of a reality show star passed away on Monday. He's being praised for 'living by example.’
Richard "Mack" Machowicz passed away at the age of 51. Machowicz had been battling brain cancer since 2015 when he was diagnosed with Stage 4. According to a tribute by his friends and fellow SEALs, the veteran spent 'nearly fifty-two years of living by example'.
After his military career, Machowicz starred in the hit Discovery Channel show “Future Weapons.” He also hosted 'Deadliest Warrior' on Spike TV, and contributed to several shows on the History Channel and Military Channel.
Machowicz ran the company “Not Dead, Can't Quit” and published the best-selling book, “Unleash the Warrior Within: Develop the Focus, Discipline, Confidence, and Courage You Need to Achieve Unlimited Goals.”
Machowicz is survived by his wife and two daughters.
“An amazing man in so many ways,” wrote Navy SEAL buddy Craig Sawyer on Facebook. “...His strength of character and integrity were outstanding.”
