Angel Macias
Parkton—SGM Angel Macias, 80, of Parkton, passed peacefully on January 5th at Moore Regional Hospital. Angel was born in Torreón, Mexico on August 8th, 1940 to Ambrocio and Carolina Macias. He is survived by five children, Charles Macias, Donna Scales, Christina Sponsler, Ruby Champ, and Angela Kluck; seven grandchildren, Stacie Coggins, Ashley Calhoun, Jackie Adam, Jodi Bloomfield, Zachary Champ, Katherine Champ and Kayla Macias; eleven great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild; one brother and three sisters, Lupe Gonzalez, Johnny Macias, Carolina Munguia, and Cande Elizaldi; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. Angel served his family and his country. He joined the US Army at age 19 and had an illustrious military career earning many decorations and medals as a Vietnam soldier including the Bronze Star Medal. He furthered his accomplishments through his work in Special Forces serving as one of the original members of Delta Force. After retiring from Special Forces, he continued his work in Civil Service for 20 years. He spent most of his retirement days at the "office", aka, the golf course. He is joined in Heaven with his late wife Gertrude "Trudy" Macias, his parents, and brother, Manuel Macias. The family is planning a service and celebration of life at a later date due to COVID-19.

May he rest in piece. From a former MANCHU brother. Many of us former "Lieutenants" benefitted from (then ISG) Macias when we were in the 1st Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment at Camp Hovey Korea. It was a tough post but sprinkled with many outstanding leaders such as he.
