Christopher Paul Mackin (61) of Johnson City, NY passed away unexpectedly on August 24, 2023, while in Dennysville, Maine; a place he truly loved to be and where he found respite.
Chris grew up in Binghamton, NY. He graduated from Seton Catholic Central High School and received his master’s degree from SUNY Binghamton. He was an accomplished wrestler in both high school and college.

One of his favorites being Head of Security at Hansom House in Southampton, NY. He also had his hand in acting, film and television in his younger days.
