Donald McCue, Jr. Obituary

Donald Francis McCue, age 81, of New London, PA passed away on Monday, September 25, 2023. 


He was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, son of the late Donald McCue, Sr. and Helen
(Ogden) McCue. Don is predeceased by his sister, Connie Barosky.


In addition to supporting his family, Don retired from General Motors (GM) after 25 plus years of service. He was also an integral part of creating a robotics-engineering display in the early 1990’s at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. He was very ahead of his time with robotic-technology. 


Don was an avid outdoorman who enjoyed fly-fishing and had such a passion for the sport. In 1981, he founded the BOJC Chapter in the state of Pennsylvania. The purpose of the organization is to teach the younger generation about fly fishing, conservation, and sporting ethics. He dedicated many hours supporting the organization. 


Don was a part of the Delaware County Field & Stream Association in Brookhaven, PA for many years, receiving numerous trophies and awards for his skills and talents in archery. 


He was also a member of the local Masonic Lodge organization. 


Don was very proud of the house that he built himself to raise his family. He enjoyed planting a beautiful flower garden each year and most importantly, spending time with his grandchildren who adored him. 


Don is survived and was the beloved husband for 60 years to Patricia (Kovaleski) McCue; father of Don McCue (the late Sloane Daly McCue) of Paradise Valley, MT; and Marlene O’Reilly (David), of Lincoln University, PA; and the grandfather of Kaitlin and Owen O’Reilly. 


Most of all, Don was a friend to many, a true-story teller, and loved to share his many jokes. He was known for his kindness and generosity. He will be missed by all who knew him.


Visitation with the family will be from 10:00AM until 11:00AM.  A masonic service will begin Don's celebration of life service at 11:00AM on Friday, October 13, 2023 at the LONGWOOD FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION of MATTHEW GENEREUX, 913 East Baltimore Pike, Kennett Square.
