Jim McDermott, founder of McDermott Cue Mfg., dies at age 80

James D. McDermott, age 80, found eternal peace on February 27, 2014 in St. George, Utah.  He was born August 18, 1933 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Jess and Maude Ruff McDermott.  He was a devoted husband to the late Marilyn L. McDermott for 58 1/2 years.  Marilyn passed away just a short 18 days ago.  He was a Corporal in the Air Force during the Korean War.

Jim lived in Milwaukee until 1993 where he was the founder of McDermott Cue Manufacturing, Inc.  He and Marilyn retired to Las Vegas, NV; from there they bought a ranch in northern Nevada and finally for the past 7 years they resided in St. George, Utah.

He is survived by his children Jess (Diane) McDermott and Phyllis McDermott; grandchildren Casey McDermott and Brie McDermott; great-grandchildren Brooklyn and Leelan.  He is preceded in death by his wife Marilyn L. McDermott and his 7 siblings.

A viewing will be held on Wednesday, March 5, 2014 from 1:00-3:00pm at the Sun River Community Center Ballroom located at 4275 S. Country Club Drive, St. George, Utah.

Interment will be at the Graceland Cemetery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In lieu of flower, the family requests donations to be made to your favorite charity in Jim’s name.
