WAYNE – Donald J. McAfee passed Sunday (August 7, 2022) surrounded by family. Donald was born January 29, 1937, to Harold and Fannie McAfee in Wayne, NY.

After serving in the Army from 1960 to 1962, he returned to Wayne where he met his wife, Janet L. (Corell) McAfee, who predeceased him in 2012. They married on November 24, 1962 and made their home in Wayne.

Besides his parents and his wife, Donald was predeceased by his son, James D. McAfee and sister, Joan Robinson.

Donald retired from Dresser Rand after over 40 years. He is a lifetime member of the Wayne Volunteer Fire Department, where he served over 50 years. He is also a member of the American Legion, the VFW and the Moose Club.

Donald loved sitting on his front porch and greeting his neighbors as they went by.

  2. It’s so sad to learn of this recent McAfee death. I know Don will be missed by his large family and I hope they know how proud he was of all of them. We always looked as we passed the house on the corner to see if Don was sitting there- and he often was!
    We send our most sincere condolences to ALL of the McAfee family.
