Butch McCue's favorite place to be was on Cape Cod…namely Popponesset. Anyone who has affection for the Cape knows once you're over the bridge on the other side of the canal it's the way life should be. The ocean, the beaches, nature and the company of family and friends was all Butch ever needed.

Donald C. 'Butch' McCue died Monday, August 10, 2020 in Care Dimensions Hospice Residence in Lincoln. He was 83.

When not on the Cape home for Butch was Waltham. Born on April 22, 1937 in Waltham he was a son of the late Thomas and Elizabeth (Hays) Waltham. A graduate of Waltham High School with the class of 1956 he married Waltham native Patricia M. Canter on June 16, 1968.

Butch worked over 30 years for Lucent Technologies before retiring in 1987.

He was a member of the Waltham Sons of Italy Dante Alighieri Lodge #648 and in earlier years enjoyed rounds of golf with friends as well as fishing and other sports with his two sons. An avid Red Sox fan he was a coach for his sons when they played in the Nipper Maher league in early years.

Butch was predeceased by his siblings, Walter, Paul, Arthur 'Squeaky' McCue and Barbara Clark.

In addition to his wife of 52 years, Patricia, he leaves his sons, Steven M. McCue (Janet) of Shrewsbury and Scott A. McCue (Karen) of Manchester, New Hampshire; his grandchildren, Jameson, Brady and Taylor; his brother, Robert McCue of Wisconsin; nieces & nephews.
