Obituary: David Edwards McKee

Posted: Updated:

David Edwards McKee, 75, of Bozeman, Montana, died February 20, 2017, after a short battle with cancer. Dave was raised in Westtown, PA. and attended Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. Upon graduation, he entered the Air Force as a second lieutenant and after 4 1/2 years of service, was given an honorable discharge as Captain. Soon thereafter, Dave started Expanko Cork company- a small business operated and run with all his heart and soul for many years.

   In 1968, Dave and Judith Knepper were married by Dr. Wayne Allen of the First Presbyterian Church of Westchester, where they found a wonderful church home. They raised their two sons, Dave and Rob, in Westchester. In 2000, Dave and Judy moved to Bozeman, MT. where they joined the Springhill Presbyterian church, and where he served as a volunteer fireman and member of the board of the Bridger Canyon Fire Department.

   Dave had a good sense of humor and held family and friends as his top priority. He was a caring husband, a respected father, and loving grandfather. Passions included golf and fishing as well as platform tennis, and chopping and splitting endless quantities of wood for fires they enjoyed every night of the winter. Two golf balls, perhaps his most prized possessions, remain on his desk, each representing a hole-in-one and countless days of trying. Dave's persistence, his generosity, and genuine good nature will be missed dearly.

   He is survived by his wife, Judith Knepper McKee, of Bozeman, MT; son, David Russell McKee and his wife, Cornelia H. McKee, of Bozeman, MT; son, Robert Edwards McKee and his wife, Alexandra McKee, of Woodville, VA; his grandsons, Jack and Charlie McKee, of Bozeman, MT, Winston and Van McKee of Woodville, VA; and his sister, Margot McKee, of Westtown, PA.

    A memorial service will be held at the Springhill Presbyterian church in Bozeman, MT, on June 17. In lieu of flowers, please send any donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) 100 W. 10th St. #1103, Wilmington, DE 19801.

Arrangements are in the care of Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service. www.dokkennelson.com
