In Memorial



Steven "Dave" Macy

CA Licensed Land Surveyor (PLS 7033)

Born: August 10, 1946. Died: February 16, 2002.

Dave Macy, a land surveyor at ProjectDesign Consultants (PDC) in San Diego, was an inspiration to everyone around him. For the past 10 years, Dave selflessly acted as a surrogate father for two impoverished children in Mexico, Brenda and Danny. After meeting the children begging on the streets, Dave immediately began providing financial and emotional support to them from that day on. The children now live in an apartment with full utilities, appliances and even a computer. Dave traveled to Mexico almost every weekend to take the children to movies and help them with homework.

Mr. Macy was born in Wayne, Michigan on August 10, 1946. Mr. Macy died February 16, 2002 in an automobile accident in Mexico. A memorial service was held to celebrate Dave's life on March 1st at Eternal Hills Mortuary in Oceanside, California. A dedicated land surveyor for the past thirty-five years, Dave moved from Oregon to San Diego in the late 1980's to pursue a career at SDG&E before moving on to ProjectDesign Consultants in 1997. Dave was responsible for overseeing SDG&E contract surveying and right-of-way work while at PDC.

While Dave will be remembered for his accomplished career in land surveying, he will possibly be more remembered as a selfless, thoughtful, soft-spoken gentleman who treasured his surrogate children, airplanes, pipe smoking and lemon pie.
