Dr. Daniel John Duprey

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. Dr. Daniel John Duprey, 60 of East Stroudsburg, passed away on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

He was the loving husband of Mary Jo (Licchio) Duprey with whom he had celebrated 29 years of marriage. Born in Troy, he was the son of the late Clarence William and Kathleen (Slocum) Duprey. Daniel was a resident of the East Stroudsburg area for the past 25 years.

Daniel was a very accomplished physician. He practiced internal medicine for twenty-nine years. He was licensed to practice medicine in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey.

From: “Riverso, Milo E.” ’81

With the deepest sympathy for his wife Valerie and his entire family, I regretfully tell you that Mike McHugh suddenly passed away yesterday.  Mike was a most dedicated husband and father but always found time to attend the many Moles meetings and functions especially Moles functions that encouraged engineering students to join our industry, such as the annual Students Day Tour. He was a man with numerous friends at the Moles, all of whom will miss his unique approach to business and outgoing personal style.

The following arrangements have been made at:

Dear Fellow Committee Members,

Many of you may have already heard that we lost Mike McHugh yesterday.

For those who hadn’t and in remembrance of his long and excellent leadership of this committee, I felt that noting his passion for Manhattan College, the Construction Industry Golf Outing and, most importantly, his towering personality, smile, and friendship to many of us was imperative.

I will truly miss the man and his lovingly awkward smile when I would insist on hugging him because I only can up to his shoulder.

I welcome thoughts on how we should honor Mike whenever you have them.

Best Regards,
Paul Scariano

John MEDICA
1958 – 2017
Obituary

John Kevin Medica, 59, of The Plains, Virginia, died peacefully on Friday October 13, 2017, in Reston Virginia, with his beloved wife and family by his side.

John was born August 23, 1958, in Ridgewood, New Jersey, the son of Adolph and Helen Medica. He is survived by his wife Megan Salzman Medica, of 32 years, and his brother James Medica; brother-in-law Joseph M. Salzman; sister-in-law Kimberly Medica; and his nephews, John Paul and Owen Christopher, and niece, Lauren Holly. He is also survived by many first and second cousins, his Uncle, Pat Santoro, and an Aunt, Donna Medica. He was preceded in death by his parents, his parents-in-law and sister-in-law, and several additional aunts, uncles, and one cousin.

He was a globally recognized senior executive in the technology industry, beginning his career at Apple Inc. for ten years, and then with Dell Inc. for fourteen years, where he retired as Senior Vice President and Co-Leader of the Product Development Organization. In his final professional position, he served seven years as Vice Chairman and Group Corporate Advisor for Compal Electronics Inc., based in Taiwan. For more information about John’s professional experience, please see The Wall Street Journal’s article, John Medica Helped Apple and Dell Recover From Design Fiascos: a boisterous engineer, led teams that developed notebook computers written by James R. Hagerty.

John also served on the Board of Directors for General Instrument (TX), and was currently serving as a board member at Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. (OR), and as a director at Artificial Solutions, Inc. He joined the Wake Forest University Business School Board of Visitors in 2001, and became a member of the Board of Trustees in 2009.

He earned his BSEE at Manhattan College in NY, and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Wake Forest University, Babcock School of Business.

A long-time resident of The Plains, Virginia, he invested his time advising technology companies, sailing, and playing golf. Together with his wife Megan, John was an ardent supporter of animal welfare and rescue groups, higher education, and had recently become involved with The Boys and Girls Clubs of America. He enjoyed his leisure time as a member of the Saint Francis Yacht Club in CA, Camden Yacht Club in ME, Caves Valley Golf Club in MD, and his favorite of all, the New York Athletic Club. John enjoyed traveling around the world throughout his life, and loved to sail extensively. Most importantly, he treasured the time he spent as the favorite uncle with his two nephews and niece, his loving family, and especially his wife.

The family would like to thank the staff of Purcellville Fire and Rescue, Middleburg Fire and Rescue, and The Plains Volunteer Fire Department. In addition, the family would like to thank the care givers and physicians at Reston Hospital for their vocational excellence and tremendous support and care during the final phase of his life.

A private memorial mass and celebration of John’s life is being planned for January. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made in his name to the following organizations: Wake Forest University Debate Wreaths Across America Best Friends Animal Society Purcellville, Virginia, Fire & Rescue Middleburg, Virginia, Fire & Rescue The Plains, Virginia, Volunteer Fire Department Or your local First Responders Organizations
