Born in Pittsburgh on April 26, 1945, he was the son of the late Nora Coyne McGee and Joseph Arthur McGee.

Joseph was a beloved husband of 50 years. Also, as a father and grandfather, he always put his family first.

Also, surviving are four siblings, Jeanne Cowden of California, Patricia Cicero of Florida, Paul McGee of Pennsylvania, and Marianne Reed (Jim) of Pennsylvania.

In keeping with Joseph’s wishes, there will be no service at this time. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a charity of your choosing. Joseph donated to causes such as Wounded Warriors Project and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
