David Magee Obituary

David Magee, 84, of Dunellen, passed away on October 1, 2023 in Dunellen, NJ.

David was born in Jersey City, NJ to Elmer and Edna Magee on June 28, 1939. He graduated from Metuchen High School. He married Nancy Ott on November 22, 1961 in Edison, NJ. David worked at PSE&G in Newark for more than 40 years, retiring at the age of 59. He was an active member at the First Presbyterian Church in Dunellen followed by Grace Episcopal Church in Plainfield and then Saint Francis Episcopal Church in Dunellen.

David was known for his positive attitude and it was not unusual to hear him whistling a tune or breaking into song. David enjoyed serving in various positions to support the church including singing in the choir, acting as financial secretary, serving as a deacon, elder and vestry member, head of altar guild, even learning to play the carillon in the tower of Grace Church.

David is survived by his wife of 61 years, Nancy, their son Scott and his wife Kathy, son Steven and his wife Sue, daughter Kristin Pirich and her husband Dean and 6 grandchildren, Michael, Kelly, Samantha, Erin, Sydney and Cassidy.

David’s family wishes to extend sincere thanks to the hospice team of Atlantic Visiting Nurse and to all of his caregivers, especially “K”.
