Mr. Mack — a 2018 inductee into the area’s Law Enforcement Officer Hall of Fame and the recipient of its most recent distinguished service award — said he founded Toledo’s Buffalo Soldiers chapter in 2013 because of his fascination with African-American history and his desire to embody values put forth by the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A former state liquor control agent, he worked his way up to deputy director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety in Columbus, where he oversaw statewide homeland security programs for five years until his retirement on Dec. 28, 2012.
