Vail Daily obituary: Ward Mack, 1950-2014

Ward Mack lost his courageous battle with cancer on Dec. 23 with his wife of 30 years, Jane, and his beloved dog, Sadie, by his side.

Ward was born and raised in upstate New York. After graduating from St. Lawrence University in 1972, his passion for skiing and mountain biking took him to Vail, where he lived for more than 30 years. He was well known as the general manager of several of Vail’s top restaurants, including the critically acclaimed restaurant La Tour.

Everyone loved Ward. His mischievous smile and easy laugh will be missed by many, especially his mother, Ruth; wife, Jane; brothers, Bob and John; and nieces, Katie and Jamie.
