CHESTER Donald M. McCue, age 91, the beloved husband of the late Virginia (Nichols) McCue, passed away peacefully at his residence in Chester on Tuesday morning, Dec. 17, 2013.

He was born on Jan. 23, 1922 in West Orange, N.J., the son of John J. and Norita (Kerons) McCue. Don proudly served his country in the United States Army during World War II in the Signal Corps in the South Pacific before graduating from Cornell University with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering in 1948.

In addition, he also studied at the Stevens Institute of Technology. After working with several manufacturers of power plant equipment doing design and field service work, he moved to suppliers of tube materials for that equipment which at that time was mostly copper alloys, but with the nuclear age the use of titanium tubes came to the forefront displacing other materials in nuclear plants.

He traveled the world successfully promoting titanium use and became known as "Mr. Titanium." It is now manufactured in many countries.

Don was a former resident of Southbury and had worked at Chase Brass in Waterbury. He was a longtime resident of Old Lyme, where he was a communicant at Christ the King Church and an active member of the Lyme-Old Lyme Lions Club. While residing in Chester he attended St. Joseph Church.

He leaves his daughter, Leigh Romanowski of Maynard, Mass.; his two grandchildren; his sister, Marjorie Bergstrom, of New Jersey; his sister-in-law, Miriam McCue, of Lexington, Mass. and his nephew, Brian McCue.

Besides his wife Virginia and his parents, he was predeceased by his son, Edward F. Robinson and his brother, John J. McCue Jr.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Christ the King Church, 1 McCurdy Road in Old Lyme, with the rendering of military honors to follow at a date and time to be announced. Private burial will be held in the Waterside Cemetery in Marblehead, Mass.

Arrangements by the Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home in Centerbrook.
