My Father and I just learned about the death of Dr. McCue and wanted to express our sincere sympathy to Ann and Michael. Dr. McCue removed my appendix when I was 12 years old, and helped me with many URI issues throughout my childhood. I have so many fond memories of him and his family. Roanoke was so fortunate to have the McCue family for 20 years.

I would also like to extend my condolences to the family. Dr. McCue taught me as both a medical student and a resident. He was an incredible role model and teacher. We have a teaching award named in his honor here at the College of Community Health Sciences. He won the award so many times, we finally named it after him. He will be greatly missed.

I would like to extend my condolences to the family. I worked with Dr. McCue at the Tuscaloosa VAMC and loved and respected him as a great Physician and teacher. The things I remembered most about him were his great laughter, sense of humor, and how much he loved the Medical Students and Residents. They loved him too! I'm glad I crossed paths with him. He was so a wonderful man.

I always loved running into Dr. McCue on the elevator or in the hallway at the Tuscaloosa VAMC. He always had a smile and a personal greeting that made you feel like he was genuinely glad to see you. He treated everyone with respect and caring. His residents loved him and he provided them great learning experiences. It left a big void when he retired. I really missed him and so did many others. Sorry for your loss and I hope you know how much Dr. McCue meant to the staff and patients he served and served with.

from a patient formerly of roanoke, al:
dr. mccue set my broken arm
early one morning in his office,
partly because my father

thought i should probably see
a doctor in this regard and
partly because health care was
delivered as needed in those
days. i recall crying a good
bit and had no idea that in the
future this would be a surgical
procedure. he gave me his
genuine medical penlight and
though i never quite completed
it, launched a career in
medicine. he made a
difference.
i think of him often.

Working with Dr. Mac at the VA has been one of the joys of my federal career. He was loved and respected by everyone and his influence still continues through all the medical residents he mentored, the staff lucky enough to work for and with him, and the veteran's he served. We love and miss you Dr. McCue!
