Rockport, MA - Paul E. "Sonny" Mackey, 87, of Rockport, passed away peacefully on April 26, 2019, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House.

Paul was a lifelong resident of Rockport and many knew him from his daily walks around town. He enjoyed taking photos and reading magazines of various topics from science, airplanes, cars and travel.
Paul was a generous and kind man. In the earlier part of his life, when his father George N Mackey Sr. owned and operated the Burgess and Mackey Funeral homes in Rockport and Gloucester, Paul was ever present in the maintenance of the homes and he always had a wonderful kindness with bereaved families.

He is predeceased by his brother George N. Mackey Jr.; his sister Dorothy Muise and her husband Archie and his sister Caroline Woodbury and a nephew Gladwyn Seavey.
