Donald R. McVey, 87, of Berwick, formerly of Shickshinny Lake, passed away Saturday evening, Jan. 23, 2021, in Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, with his loving wife, Gloria, and one of his daughters, Colleen, by his side.
He was born in East Orange, N.J., the son of the late Christian and Fay Beauchamp McVey.
Don served proudly in the United States Navy, serving on an aircraft carrier in the Korean War. He worked at Picatinny Arsenal and Instrument specialties as a Master Tool and Die Maker. He was an avid fisherman, ice fisherman and bowler.
He was Gloria's heart and soul, being there for her and his family. He will most be remembered for his ability to make you laugh and his extremely hard work ethic. If he was not working on a project, he was figuring out his next one.
