This has happened to me more than once, but I am sitting here at work and for some reason I feel a need to check the obituaries on the RC Journal I don't get on Facebook or the Cobbler website often...and today I see Steve's obit...I am so sad and shocked! We had written a few e-mails back and forth and of course Steve wasn't able to attend the reunion...he wrote that he would try to attend the next thoughts and prayers go out to his family! He sat behind me in 8th grade Social Studies and we reminisced about those days...he was always a good friend and he will be missed. I guess this is a wake up call that we need to cherish every day as you just don't know what the future holds...

So shocked and saddened by Steve's death. As Scott Feterl said, Steve was part of my baseball experience with the Diesels. He was a great teammate and ALWAYS encouraged you when things weren't going well.
Steve and I also went through confirmation together at Trinity Lutheran church. I still remember Steve having deep spiritual thoughts and questions during that time. He was a guy you could confide in and expect a thoughtful response.
Steve, God bless you and I hope you know how many of the old '79ers are thinking of you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Steve, his daughter, and his entire family at this time.

I've known Steve since Sunday School at Trinity since the ripe age of 3. See Karen Anderson (Richards) profile for the confirmation picture Mark R. is referring to. I believe Steve is standing behind Karen on the left.

From this place into God's tender care we wish you blessed peace dear friend.

I also attest to what Scott and Nadine have said. This is a real wake-up call to us all to stay in better touch with one another. My prayers and blessings to the Macy family.

So sorry to hear about Steve. This was a real shocker when I read it in the RC Journal. Glen & I were wondering what had happened to him. We didn't see Steve at the reunion, but we started talking about confirmation at Trinity and all the good times we had in class. Karen's picture brings back fun memories of some of our pranks. Not us! HA HA! Mark Rudebusch & I talked about this last week. Steve, you are still a great friend and a great person. Thanks for all the laughs. May you rest in Peace! Our condolences to Steve's family.

Hello Fellow Cobblers: Ann Zenk, Barb Kopp, and Chuck Kramer attended funeral services held for Steve Macy on Monday, Nov. 16th, 2009. The event was described as a "Celebration of Life," followed by prayers, scriptures, and personal tributes. We offered Steve's family our condolences on behalf of the Cobblers of 1979. Steve passed away in his sleep; hopefully he did not suffer. He'd had a heart condition for some time. Steve was a loving person, and his family reported that he "was called home to heaven on November, 12, 2009." Steve's sisters said they would enjoy hearing from Steve's classmates by e-mail or letter. They can be reached at: Joan Pomerenke 4331 Lincoln Way Sioux City, IA. 51106 AND/OR Steve's family has formed a book of comments and memories as a way of remembering his life. The book will be presented to Steve's surviving 10-year old daughter. They ask that you ponder a few questions: * How did Steve influence your life? * Describe Steve in one word. * What is a memorable time you remember with Steve? * What do you remember Steve's passions to be? * What was the funniest thing Steve ever said? * What did Steve teach you about God? * When you see Steve's picture, what will you remember most? submitted by Barbara Kopp Brinkmeyer

I just want to thank those who put this website together because without it I would never have touched base with Steve. We were able to share some of our rambling stories which he had many. God Bless you Steve, you left a beautiful memory.
