Macaulay, Kerry B., Saginaw Township, Michigan


Beloved husband, father, and son passed away Tuesday, July 26, 2011 at his home surrounded by his family. He was 56 years old. Kerry was born August 30, 1954 in Detroit to Brian and Joey (James) Macaulay. He was married to Susan Geese on February 24, 1979 in Saginaw. She survives him. Kerry was employed at Schneider Electric/Square D. He was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and of the Knights of Columbus #4232. Kerry’s first love was his family and he treasured their time together. He also enjoyed fishing, especially fly-fishing on Michigan streams, and in 30 years he never missed an opening day of trout season with his brother-in-law Dave. Kerry traveled many miles on the Saginaw Rail Trail and also competed in the Ice Man Cometh Challenge 27-mile bicycle race. Left to cherish Kerry’s memory, along with his wife, is his son, Matthew Kerry Macaulay of Lansing; his father, Brian Macaulay of Bay City; his father and mother-in-law, Albert and Ruby Geese of Saginaw; two brothers-in-law: Dave (Penny) Geese of Saginaw, Don (Diane) Geese of Holland; two cherished nieces: Nichole and Elizabeth; very special cousins: Martha (Sam) Pettineo of Chicago and Jim Huston of Detroit.
