Pat McGuire

August 7, 1940 — July 13, 2020

Thomas Patrick (Pat) McGuire, 79, died Monday of Parkinson’s disease. He was born in Washington, DC, and resided there until his retirement in 1999 when he and his wife, Susan Harris McGuire, moved to Onancock, VA. A graduate of American University, Mr. McGuire served in the Air Navy during the Vietnam era. He began his career as a manufacturer representative for several lines of office furniture, securing government contracts and later in facilities management for such companies as MCI where he executed real estate contracts and permits to lay the groundwork for that communications company’s nationwide network. He also worked for a prestigious law firm overseeing a $10 million, five story renovation in downtown Washington. Later he served as the general manager of The Towers, a DC condominium complex. In his new home of Onancock he enjoyed life in the small bayside town serving as an election officer and a school bus driver. He was an active proponent of recovery from alcoholism, helping hundreds of others over his 48 years of sobriety.

Mr. McGuire is survived by his wife, Susan, and his brothers’ children and grandchildren, namely niece, Sharon Mcguire Robertson of Solomon’s Island, MD, her daughter, Suzanne George and granddaughters, Amber, Caitlyn and Bridget George; niece, Leslie Mcguire Favre of Harwood, MD, and her children, Madeleine Rose and Sébastien Guy Favre; nephew, Kevin McGuire of Boston, niece, Anna McGuire Businger of Cinnamisson, NJ, and grandnephew, Jack McGuire.
