Worked in pot lining with Jim McMahon. He was one of my supervisors ,I have to say Jim was nicest Kamas person that I’ve ever worked for. He had a way about him you wanted to do your job for this man and do your best. He was full of jokes made me laugh most every time I talk to him. After Jim McMahon retired our department fell apart. He truly was an awesome person and he will be terribly missed. My prayers go out to the family for healing.

I WORKED IN POTLINING DEPT. AT ALCOA WITH " MAC " FROM 1971 UNTIL I RETIRED IN 2000. HE WAS THE BEST EQUIPTMENT OPERATER IN THE DEPARTMENT. YOU NEVER HAD TO WAIT FOR MAC HE WAS ALWAYS AT LEAST 1 STEP AHEAD OF EVERYBODY. WHEN HE BECAME SUPERVISOR I ALSO HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WORK FOR HIM. AGAIN HE WAS A GREAT SUPERVISOR. HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM OR WORKED WITH HIM.

Around 1980 Jim was the cage operator on day shift at Alcoa in the potlining dept. I was filling in for a man on vacation and was opening bags of Buffalo patch with my trowel. He must have noticed because the next day he presented me with a knife he had made from an old sawblade. He cut it out shaped it and sharpened it. It made opening the bags much easier and quicker. It shows what a kind, helpful person he was to do that without being asked to. I've still got the knife almost fifty years later and I always think of Jim when I look at it. I'm sorry He's left the Earth and I will miss seeing him around town.
