MACV address

The Wall of Honor is a tribute to those living and deceased. The names posted have been honored as being special in some significant way to someone who has made a gift to MACV. Please contact us to include the name of someone special to you.

In Honor of Nathanael Vitalis
In 2012 MACV lost one of our most dedicated team members.  Nate’s commitment to MACV’s mission was unwavering.  His unmatched analytical skills helped build MACV’s strong financial and IT systems. Nate was an inspiration to those who were fortunate enough to work with him.  He taught by example to not see the problem, only the solution.  The following was written by Nate and Kathleen’s son Lukas.


September 29, 2012

For two and a half years my Father devoted the entirety of his existence to fighting cancer, and today, for the first time in those two and a half years, he is no longer plagued by worry, doubt, or sadness.

The greatness of a man is not determined by his wealth or by his conquests.  The greatness of a man is determined by the people whose lives he’s touched, and today the world lost a truly great man, the best man I’ve ever had the honor to know.

A Father, husband, son, brother, uncle, teacher, coach, and best friend; rest in peace Nathanael David Vitalis, you will always be loved.

~ Your Son
