David Hughes McGee passed away on November 10, 2013 in Oakland, CA where he had lived and worked for 24 years. He and his twin brother Edgar Harris McGee (Eddie) were born on July 29, 1963 in Winston-Salem to Louise White McGee and James Lloyd McGee (Spike). He graduated from Reynolds High School in 1981 and from Davidson College in 1985.
David worked in a variety of fields including IT marketing, journalism, financial services, credit counseling, and sales, but his great love was playing jazz guitar. He performed and recorded with a number of instrumental groups in the Bay Area where people in jazz venues, parties, jam sessions and churches enjoyed his gift of music. He is survived by his brother Eddie and Eddie’s wife Iris of Greensboro, NC, his brother Jim McGee of Louisville, KY and his brother Zell and wife Roz of Chapel Hill, NC. He is also survived by his aunt and uncle, Sarah and David Stedman of Winston-Salem.
The family is deeply grateful to cousin, Joy Heitmann of Raleigh, NC who joined Jim and Eddie in CA to make arrangements for the memorial service.
