Mr. McIe worked in the logging business beginning at an early age and logged the "old-fashioned way" with horses. Before going to Holbrook's, he enjoyed visiting with friends and community members at the Rock Cave Diner, Kay's Diner, and sitting in his truck at the Y in Rock Cave. He enjoyed joking around with folks, no matter friend or stranger. After visiting with folks for a while, he usually found a "connection" with them. He was a Christian by faith.
The family will receive friends from 5-7 p.m., on Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013, at the Heavner and Cutright Funeral Chapel. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013, at the funeral chapel with the Rev. Robert F. Heavner officiating. Interment will follow in the Bennett Cemetery at Kanawha Head.
