So, with AC, who one day saw light, this Light was Jesus. The other day, the Light called him home. Mr. AC Mastin was born July 31, 1930 in Belle Miner, Alabama, the son of Wesley Sanfur and Minerva Mastin. When AC was 3 years old, Lewis Randolph Sr. and Minerva Mastin got married and the family moved to Leighton, AL. He confessed a hope in Christ at an early age and joined the Galilee Missionary Baptist Church, singing in the choir, and was a Happy Hitter’s gospel singer. AC attended Leighton Training School where he loved to compete in track. He was a Jack-of-All-Trades, being able to create all things he set out to do. In 1953, he came to Flint, Michigan seeking work at Buick City, a division of General Motors Corporation. AC united with Antioch Missionary Baptist Church where he sang in the choir. On June 6, 1954 he married the love of his life, Edna, celebrating 67 years of marriage and after dating 4 years which made 71 years together. He had a way with his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and god-children, to make them think they were special and his favorite one. In 1957, he helped organize the Mighty Wind Spiritual Singers, and he sang lead baritone while traveling. They were on stage with the Mighty Clouds of Joy. The late Reverend L. W. Pryor sent AC and Edna to Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church where AC sang in the Inspirational Choir, Male Chorus, drove bus tours and helped build the Baptistry. It was there that he met his friend Rev. Jo Ann Carrigan who kept in contact with AC through the years. Every time he went to the hospital or even was sick at home Jo Ann would call. The last time she called he whispered “I can’t sing”, but then he tried. He fought a good fight and had a lot of pain. AC was a member of Beacon Light #10, Eureka Grand Lodge in Detroit, MI and was also a Shriner. He also drove for Flint Charters and was a self-made barber from the age of 16. He was loved by all and will be greatly missed. Mr. AC Mastin leaves in care of his Heavenly Father: wife of 67 years, Edna B. Mastin; 2 sons, Maurice A. Mastin of Flint and A’cdric J.
