C.F. Dacy, 68, of Eldorado, Texas died at his residence in Wichita Falls, Texas on Saturday, March 20, 2010. Memorial services will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. Friday March 26, 2010 in the Eldorado Cemetery.
C.F. was born and raised in Eldorado, and continued to love it dearly even after he relocated to Wichita Falls in 2004 to spend the rest of his life next door to his son and family. He was employed by Southwest Texas Electric Cooperative for 35 years. During the 6 years he spent in Wichita Falls, he was a daily part of his grandchildren’s lives-- a chauffeur, a guardian, a Barney-buddy, a friend. He was a constant, comforting presence to his family; taking the daunting role of the ever-present baby sitter, always cheering at the game or sitting in the stands at practice, assisting in the management of his son’s wild game processing business and still always ready for a summer night cookout with family and friends. He was grounded and assured, deeply faithful, quiet but loving in the kindest of ways.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Mary Charles Reynolds Dacy and Marion Dacy; and one daughter, Carrie Ann Dacy. He is survived by a son, Nick Dacy, Jennifer Dacy, grandchildren Jake, Kamden and Ashley, all of Wichita Falls; brothers Lee and Monroe Dacy of Eldorado; sisters Debbie Sue Rios of Hondo, Texas and Jean Schmidt of Fredericksburg, Texas; and many close friends. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
“He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—length of days, for ever and ever. -- Psalm 21:4
