It is with great sadness that Southminster shares news of the passing of David Lacy, President and CEO of Southminster from 1999 – 2019. David served in the field of aging services from 1982 until his retirement from Southminster. For 36 years, David’s focus on providing leadership and financial stewardship to CCRCs was part of his mission to improve the quality of life for seniors in North Carolina and strengthen the communities they call home. His many accomplishments include CFO, Executive Director, President & CEO, Board Chair of LeadingAgeNC, Board Chair of the LeadingAgeNC Foundation, and the recipient of the LeadingAgeNC Career Excellence Award for Lifetime Achievement. David had the ability to bring people together and find a way forward. He assumed value in every person and listened to each individual’s issue or concern. His business acumen and his thoughtful consideration and insight from a multitude of perspectives was widely respected by his colleagues, staff and board members who served with him. David’s humble manner, his sense of humor, and his love for this community will be remembered and missed by all who knew him.
