James Robert Macy
November 25, 1950 - October 8, 2023
James Robert Macy was born in Kansas City, MO on November 25, 1950. He moved around a lot as a kid because of his father's job at AmoCo. Refineries. As a teen, he worked summer jobs in Oak Bluffs at Reliable Market and the Strand movie theater to name a couple.
James received a bachelor's degree in education at Texas A&M University. After college, he taught high school math and social studies in both Boerne and Galveston, TX.
James married his wife Faye Baird right out of high school on August 1, 1970. Their son, Jeremiah, was born in Houston, TX on October 9, 1983.
The couple had summered in Oak Bluffs but decided to permanently move to the Vineyard in 1990. The family lived in the Camp Meeting Grounds in Oak Bluffs in a home called "The Sea Breeze".
James leaves behind his son, Jeremiah; his wife, Faye; his brother, Philip III; and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents, Marguerite, and Philip Macy, Jr.
James passed away peacefully Sunday morning, October 8th, at Martha's Vineyard Hospital.
