Richard McCue Obituary
Richard Dick McCue passed away on October 16, 2017. Dick was the son of the late Richard Philip McCue and the late Beatrice (Shivery) McCue, and brother of Danny, Julie, Kathy and the late Gary and Eileen. A lifelong resident of Brookline, he graduated from Brookline High School in 1970, having attended Devotion School and St. Aidans grammar school. Custodian/ caretaker at Temple Emeth in Chestnut Hill for 34 years, Dick was extremely devoted and greatly appreciated by his Temple Emeth family. He was honored as Temple Emeth Brotherhoods Man of the Year in 2010 for his support and service that went so far above and beyond, for his kindness and generosity, and for his persona which exemplified the Mens Clubs ideals of leadership, innovation and community. Dick would be out at 4 am shoveling and snowblowing in the fiercest of New England storms, making sure that the 7 am minyan crowd could safely park on the streets and walk on the sidewalks. Additionally, they would come out after the morning service and find that Dick had cleaned the snow off of all their cars. He just did it, and quietly did many other generous and thoughtful things to help others and make the synagogue run smoothly and beautifully. An avid Beatles fan as well as a big-time Patriots fan, Dick's interests included music, sports, politics, media; he loved Spiderman and other superheroes, and was very well-read and knowledgeable on a great many topics. And anyone who knew Dick knew of his love of animals | most especially of his late beloved dog, Rufus. The two of them were inseparable. Dicks favorite pastime was taking Rufus to Nantasket Beach. Dick will be greatly missed by all those blessed to have known him. Private services will be held.
