It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bryan William McCue on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at the Ottawa General Hospital at the age 72 years. Born in Perth, ON, Bryan grew up in Levack, ON and lived in many places throughout his life, including Smiths Falls, Kingston, Kenora, Kemptville and eventually Cornwall.

Ever the scholar and aspiring geographer, Bryan pursued his post-secondary education at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON. After marrying Holly and moving to Kenora, ON, he completed a Masters Degree through York University, and began a long and successful career with the Ministry of Natural Resources. An avid outdoorsman, Bryan spent his life actively seeking out adventures everywhere he went. He skied, hiked, swam, golfed, paddled, biked and camped around North America. In 2011, he realized a lifelong dream by making his way to the Great Wall of China. Bryan was a dependable dive buddy to many, a spirited doubles partner on the tennis court and a true gentleman on the golf green. He was a steward of the great outdoors and was most himself in the natural world. He enjoyed sharing his hobbies, expertise and love for life with the people around him, especially his family.

Bryan was the beloved husband for 48 years of Holly McCue (née Johnston) of Cornwall. Loving, dedicated father of Amanda Van Dalen (James) of Kanata, ON, Scott McCue (Tina) of Kaohsiung, Taiwan and Sean McCue (Candice) of Picton, ON. Cherished grandfather of Ava, Sydney and Jack. Dear brother of Robert McCue (Sheila) of Smiths Falls, ON. Bryan is predeceased by his parents; Gordon McCue and Blanche McCue (née White). As per Bryan’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Memorial donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Canadian Blood Services would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Wilson Funeral Home, 822 Pitt Street, Cornwall, ON (613) 938-3888. Condolences may be made online at
