Obituary for G. Scott Macy

G. Scott Macy passed away peacefully on Friday, the 26th of October. He was surrounded by his family. He was born January 21, 1951 to Eleanor and Glen Macy in McMinnville, Oregon. He graduated from McMinnville High School and went on to earn a Bachelors degree in Business from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. After college, he joined Volunteers In Service to America (VISTA), which took him to Marquette, Michigan. While being a VISTA he weatherized homes through a program called Action Housing. Subsequently, after his term with VISTA, he became director of the Action Housing. Later, he became executive director of the Alger-Marquette Community Action Program. It was in Marquette where he fell in love with Mary Sue Kordish. They married in Marquette, Michigan on July 23rd, 1978. In 1982, with a young family in tow, he moved back to McMinnville, Oregon to join his brother Steven D. Macy in the family business, Macy and Son Funeral Home.
Scott loved his community. He was active in numerous civic organizations. His most notable achievements were recognition as McMinnville’s Junior Citizen in 1985 and Kiwanian of the year for 1987-1988. He served on the swim pool renovation committee, Parks Bond Committee and was instrumental in the building of the Senior Center. In addition, Scott served on several professional boards.
Scott was a lifelong swimmer, even holding an AAU National record at age ten that still stands today. He loved gathering with family and friends, sharing embellished memories around an ocean caught feast. He had an easy way with people and cherished all of his friendships. He was an avid fisherman who also enjoyed biking, skiing, reading, traveling, and most of all, the ocean. Scott maintained a gentle sense of humor even throughout his illness.
He is survived by his wife, daughter Ericka Macy-Gustafson (Matt), son Glen C. Macy (Kellee), grandchildren Mia and Maverick Gustafson, brother Steve Macy (JacE), sister Thrina Parent (Mike), and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Christine Gibney.
Services will be held at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in McMinnville on Saturday, November 3rd 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Private family interment at Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery. Contributions can be made to Willamette Valley Cancer Foundation or the McMinnville Noon Kiwanis in care of Macy and Son.
