During the Second World War he served with the Royal Marines from 1940 to 1946, first in the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean and later with the Commando in continental Europe. David married Mary Watson Macaree (maiden name unknown) in 1949, and in 1955 they immigrated to Canada, first teaching in North Central British Columbia before moving to Vancouver.

David Macaree joined the Department of English as a lecturer after he completed his M.A. at UBC. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 1965, and became Associate Professor of English at UBC in 1970. In 1985, after his retirement, Macaree was honoured with the title of Associate Professor Emeritus of English. David died on 9 Dec 1998.
