Dick Macy
Resident of Moraga

Ernest Richard (Dick) Macy, a remarkable and cherished individual, has left an indelible mark on the lives of those who were fortunate enough to know him. He passed away surrounded by the love of his family on January 30, 2024.
Dick was a devoted husband, celebrating 70 years of marriage with his beloved wife, Jean Macy. Together, they exemplified unwavering commitment and deep affection.
As a father, Dick was unparalleled, nurturing and guiding his children with wisdom and love. He leaves behind a legacy of love to his children: Kim Macy Richardson, Eric Macy, and Jennifer Conley. He was not just a father but a pillar of strength and support, instilling in his children values that will endure through generations.
To his grandchildren, Brittany and Amanda Richardson, Eric Jr., Brooke, and Hunter Macy, he was affectionately known as 'Papa'. His playful spirit and boundless love enriched their lives and created cherished memories that will be forever treasured.
Dick earned his undergraduate degree from UCLA (Kim and Eric followed in his footsteps) and his MBA from USC, all while working to support his young family. The majority of his career was spent at IBM, where he spearheaded major projects and built highly effective teams. Upon taking early retirement, he joined Digital Equipment where he handled major domestic and international accounts.
Dick's faith was the cornerstone of his life, and he was an active member of Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church for many years. He served in various capacities, from elder to mentor, leaving an indelible mark on the community. His dedication extended to supporting Mount Hermon in Santa Cruz, where his participation was deeply valued.
Beyond his spiritual and familial commitments, Dick was an adventurer at heart. He found joy in sailing, whether on larger boats or navigating the waters on his Hobie Cat catamaran, where he fearlessly rode the waves of both San Francisco Bay and Lake Tahoe. His zest for life extended to other activities, including travel, horseback riding, bike riding, and motorcycle riding. He was also a master of leisure, enjoying games like Monopoly, Gin, and Ping Pong.
However, above all else, Dick cherished moments spent with Jean, his beloved wife and companion for 75 years. Their enduring love story is a testament to the power of love and companionship.
Though Dick has departed from this world, his spirit will forever live on in the hearts of those he touched. His kindness, laughter, and unwavering love will be dearly missed but fondly remembered for years to come. May his legacy of love and joy continue to inspire and guide us all.
