A longtime East Texas pastor and hospital chaplain has passed away.

Reverend Michael Macey, who pastored for 25 years at Longview's Trinity Episcopal Church, died Wednesday night at Good Shepherd Medical Center.

After he retired from his minister's post 12 years ago, Macey worked at Good Shepherd as a Chaplain and was active in community affairs.

Hospital employees say they have lost a loyal and dedicated member of its family.

Ed Banos, Good Shepherd MC CEO calls Macey, "A positive person who was always available, you just really felt his presence, felt it when you were with him, and just knew when he was in the building, loved the job here and he made everybody else love their job even more when he was involved."

Funeral services for Reverend Macey are scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday at Trinity Episcopal Church in Longview.
