McCUE < Terrance "Terry" McCue Sr., 68, passed away following a brief illness. Terry finished his final lap and went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, September 5, 2007 at 4:00 p.m. Coffee time.
He was preceded in death by siblings, Hal Ryan McCue, Frances Ann DeMayo, Louise T McCue, Thomas Raymond McCue, and William "Billy" McCue.
Terry is survived by his loving wife of 46 years Melba Melba Raye Wiley McCue; son, Terry Scott McCue, Jr. and his wife Janet; daughters, Jennifer Raye McCue and Tracey Renee McCue; brother, James L "Buddy" McCue (JoAnn); sisters, Virginia Marie Shows and Bridget Marie Hodgson (Ted); sisters-in-law, Rita McCue and Joyce McCue; brother-in-law, Scott Wiley, Jr. (Becky); sister-in-law, Alda Sheckells (Leo); many nieces and nephews; and his dog Tango.
After leaving Fletcher High School, Terry had a variety of careers. He served in the Air National Guard as a Radio Operator and was honorably discharged in 1961. He worked alongside his dear friend, Benny Rodriquez, with Southern Bell as a lineman for 10 years before deciding to enter the profession of real estate. For several years he was blessed to work for and be mentored by beaches realtor, Townsend Hawkes, prior to establishing Terry McCue Real Estate, Inc. in 1968. Over the years he could often be found having coffee at a variety of beach establishments with his friends and business associates where he jotted notes and drafted ideas on his napkin. The cell phone was likely his greatest accessory as it allowed him the freedom he cherished to be on the move traveling the beach, "making the loop", in his suburban looking for his next deal. He never retired and continued to successfully own and operate his business leaving it for his family to continue. In his free time, he enjoyed tinkering with cars, cutting the grass, and fishing at his retreat on the Suwannee River.
As a lifelong resident and business man at the beaches, he had the opportunity to work with and know an undeterminable amount of wonderful people. We invite you to a celebration of his life to be held at Neptune Baptist Church, on Thursday, September 13, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. with Pastor Tom Bary Officiating, casual dress appreciated. The family will receive friends directly following the service at the home of Michael McCue, 1701 6th Ave N, Jacksonville Beach.
