McENROE TIMOTHY DANA McENROE (Age 77) Died on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House with his wife and family by his side. Born in Fargo, ND in 1933, Tim grew up in Washington, DC and graduated from the Capitol Page School. Service during the Korean War instilled a love of journalism and he joined the National Press Club shortly after. He attended Georgetown University before launching into the field of public relations. The firm Rainey and McEnroe was established in the early "60s. He moved to Cincinnati, OH in 1978 and eventually took the position of Vice President of Public Relations with Federated Department Stores. For a number of years the Cincinnati Enquirer ran his editorial column. Tim was involved with the United Way, serving as campaign coordinator. He also co-authored a textbook, still found in classrooms, on ethics for social workers. In 1996, he fulfilled a long-held hope by moving to California. He enjoyed being able to see all his good friends more often. By 2002 he was in Maine, to be closer to family and relished sitting at the head of the table for many a feast. Tim won the Vermont Playwrights 2009 award for his play, "Seeking Mischief". He is survived by his lovely wife, Linda Whittaker McEnroe; his children, Marion McEnroe Puglisi and her companion, Bernard Zike, of Portland and Warren, ME, George Patrick McEnroe and his wife, Atsuko Shimowada, of Houston, TX, Dana Elizabeth McEnroe and her husband, Daniel Nuzzi, of Cumberland, ME and stepchildren Payson Stewart Briggs and his wife, Aideen, of Cincinnati, OH and Heather Whittaker Briggs, of San Francisco, CA and their families. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, it is requested that contributions be made to the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House.
