William B. “Bill” Macey of Papillion, NE; Tucson, AZ; and Sidney, BC Canada passed away peacefully in his home on the morning of July 12, 2017. Bill was born in Buffalo, NY on August 1, 1920 to parents Charles and Doris (Bourne)Macey.

Always gregarious, humorous, and giving—Bill completed his bachelor’s degree in petroleum engineering in 1942 from New Mexico School of Mines (now New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology). After his four years as flight engineer with the 351st Bomb Group of the U.S. Air Force, he began his successful career with small and medium sized oil and gas companies in New Mexico, Texas, and Wyoming rising to the level of president in all of the companies. In 1970, he started his own successful oil and gas exploration company, Macey Mershon Corporation in Denver, CO. He received an honorary doctorate in 1984 from New Mexico Tech for his accomplishments, achievements, and dedication to the university.

Perpetually kind-hearted, he was very philanthropic especially to his alma mater—New Mexico Tech (NMT). He contributed the majority of the funding for The Macey Performing Arts Center as well as The Macey Family Children Center both at NMT in Socorro, NM. He believed in education by establishing The Macey Scholars Program and The Macey Scholarship both at NMT, a University of New Mexico (UNM) Business School Scholarship, a UNM Alumni Scholarship, and a University of Arizona (U of A) Engineering Scholarship. He also gave generous amounts to U of A Heart Center, NMT Golf Course, Stephens College, and Hillsdale College.

An avid golfer he was a previous member of Alto Country Club, Tanoan Country Club, Garden of the Gods Golf Resort, and past-treasurer /past-president of Skyline Country Club. Race horses were a passion and he served as board of director/ past president of Ruidoso Jockey. He and Cheryl were world travelers, enjoying days at sea, lunch at small bistros in Europe, and dinner under palm trees with Polynesian breezes.

Survived by his loving and caring wife Cheryl Pulaski Macey; stepson Collin (Emily) Schwartz; grandson Thomas Schwartz; daughter Barbara (Joseph) Todd; granddaughter Sarah (Tyler) Brewer; sister-in-law Ellen Pulaski; nieces Pam (James) Baker and Nancy (William) Hohensee; nephew Richard Poppenberg ; numerous grand-nephews and grand-nieces; several great grand-nephews and great grand-nieces; and his four-legged companions—Molly and Bailey. He will be terribly missed by all.

Preceded in death by his parents; his wife Jean Mullins Macey; sister Doris Poppenberg; nephew Macey Poppenberg.
