Steven Ellwood Macy of Littleton, CO, was called home to heaven on Nov. 12, 2009.
Steven was born on Feb. 13, 1961 in Vermillion, to Ralph and Lenette Macy. He attended school in Rapid City, graduating in 1979 from Central High School. At the age of 13, Steven asked Jesus to be his personal savior. Steven graduated from Arizona State University in 1984 with a degree in small business management. His first job at American Hospital in Denver was his "dream job" and was the start of a wide range of positions, including his favorite at Gateway Computers where mace2k became his nickname. Steven loved people and everyone he met became his friend. He had a great passion for missions and spent six months with YWAM in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he worked in Sarajevo. International travel became a strong interest for Steve. In 1997, Steven was married to Julia Chebakova of St. Petersburg, Russia. From this union Gabriella "Ellie" Macy was born.
Steve was a people person with a wide range of interests. He loved camping, fishing, photography, and tennis. He had a heart for people and was generous to a fault. Steven loved his family and friends and would do anything for them at a moment's notice. His infectious laugh and crazy "stevisms" were always a source of humor. Steve lived in the Denver area working on computers and miscellaneous IT areas until his death. He was loved deeply by his family and friends and will be greatly missed.
