David Macy, 61, of Vermillion, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, at the Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls.
David was born June 8, 1951 in Vermillion to Merle and Marjorie (Hilker) Macy. He graduated from Vermillion High School and attended the University of South Dakota. He served in the National Guard and married Janet Walz on April 11, 1970 in Vermillion. David retired as an ag loan officer for the Randolph State Bank in 2008.
David started his banking career at the National Bank of South Dakota in Vermillion where he worked as a teller from 1968 through 1971. In January 1972, he moved his family to Kilgore, NE, where he started working for Farmers State Bank as a teller and loan officer, working his way up to president of the bank. In January of 1985, the Macy family moved to Lenox, IA. Dave became an ag loan officer at the First National Bank of Lenox until September of 1999 when they returned to Vermillion. Dave worked at CorTrust Bank until 2004, and at the Randolph State Bank in Randolph, NE from 2006 through 2008 when health reasons forced him into early retirement.
Dave was always a farmer at heart and although he didn’t farm on his own, his fondest memories were working on the family farm near Burbank, SD and was happiest when being able to make farming possible for countless others.
