Obituary

David Gracey, 78, of Greeley, Colorado, passed away on March 20, 2021 in Greeley.

David was born in Iowa to Virgil & Evelyn (Simmons) Gracey on May 25, 1942. During his youth, David was involved in Boy Scouts with his Dad, they both earned the Order of the Arrow. After graduation as an honor student from Alameda High, he went to Colorado State University with plans to become a veterinarian. Unfortunately, chemistry was not his friend! On the first day of classes their freshman year, he met Liz on their way to P.E. On September 9, 1962 in Greeley, David married the love of his life, Elizabeth (Liz) (Lee) Gracey.

After graduating with a degree in business, David was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force as a maintenance officer on the C141A Starlifter. During his enlistment, David participated in several training operations to Japan and other areas of Asia. Many times, he and Liz referred to the Air Force as the best years of their lives! While stationed at McChord Air Base in Tacoma, Washington, their family gained a daughter, Coral. When he was discharged, he was a Captain. David was very proud of his service to our country.

After his time in the Air Force, David became a CPA, after he went on to have his own accounting firm in Greeley. David was also an active member of Lions Club International. While a member, he enjoyed being a member of their bowling team. He went on to become president of the local chapter, he enjoyed traveling to the annual state conventions (this was frequently a family vacation). He also became a member of the State Lions Camp board and went on to become the president of this board. He was very passionate about providing a safe, fun place where the campers could grow and learn.

David also was an involved dad and loved attending Coral’s many extracurricular activities. He drove to events, helped stack papers for paper drives, and shuttled cookies as cookie chairman for her Girl Scout troop.

After retirement, David and Liz enjoyed some traveling, and paid frequent trips to see Coral wherever she was living at the time. His lifelong love of music was enhanced by the variety of musical talents that performed at the Union Colony Civic Center over the years.

A Celebration of Life will be at 11:00am on Monday, March 29, 2021 at Northern Colorado Crematory- Community Room, 700 8th St, Greeley, CO 80631.
