Army civilian dies at home in Germany
A longtime civilian employee who worked for the U.S. Army died Saturday at his home in Weinheim, Germany, according to the Army.
Michael Macari, 44, had worked for 18 years as an Army civilian, most recently as an electronics engineer with the Army’s 5th Signal Command in Mannheim.
He had been with the command since 1994, and most recently served as a lead senior-level project engineer in its plans and engineering section, according to an Army press release.
From 1989 until transferring to 5th Signal, Macari worked for the former U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command-Europe.
Macari worked in Saudi Arabia on projects for Operation Desert Storm and on projects for U.S. and NATO troops in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia, the release said.
He is survived by his wife, Elaine, and son, Michael.
A memorial service is scheduled for Thursday, at 2 p.m., at the Benjamin Franklin Village chapel.
