Raymond M. “Mace” Maracic

Raymond M. “Mace” Maracic, age 77, at rest January 30, 2023. Beloved husband of Carlota Maracic (nee: Mendoza) for 55 years. Loving father of Cynthia (Dean) Lyon and Charlotte (Scott) Jaskoviak. Cherished grandfather of Arielle Lyon. Raymond was preceded in death by his parents John and Frances Maracic (nee: Eck), and his brothers John (Geraldine), Frank (Irene) and Eugene (Ruth) Maracic.

Ray’s love and priority was spending time with his family.  Ray and Carlota enjoyed attending art fairs/festivals, concerts, the theater, and the opera. When Cindy and Charlotte were kids, he always made the time to be with them no matter how tired he was from work, from teaching them how to fish, twirling a jump rope to pitching a softball.  He never got angry when he was handed a wrong tool rebuilding engines on his many muscle cars. Corvette’s, Chevelle’s and T’Bird. 

When Ray and Carlota first married in 1967, Ray worked two jobs so they could build their first custom home in Oak Lawn and have his wife stay home to raise their two daughters. He was a hardworking husband and father who shared his ambition and talents through his work with National Can Corporation, The City of Chicago, and as a union carpenter and foreman at McCormick place for nineteen years. Ray continued his career as a Hinsdale-area realtor for thirty years and as a residential builder, undertaking the design and construction of his family’s homes, including a handful of investment properties. Ray had a knack for finding value in everything and everyone he encountered.

In 1985 they moved to Burr Ridge where they built two additional custom homes and have since resided for the last 38 years. He adored and loved to spoil his Granddaughter Arielle. Every Saturday when she was a child they would go to McDonalds and Grandpa never missed a school performance. Ray kept lifelong friends to whom he spoke to on a regular basis, from childhood, high school and into his professional career. “MACE” was his nickname from playing HS football. After finishing high school, he went on to the practice squad with the San Diego Chargers, which was a short brutal stint. He remained a loyal and lifelong Chicago Bears fan. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Paralyzed Veterans of America or the American Cancer Society  would be appreciated.
