Marine veteran from Brookfield celebrates his 90th birthday
The veteran celebrated a milestone birthday last week when he turned 90. His friend, Frank Bader, and wife hosted a small birthday lunch for McGinley on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Katie’s Kitchen in Wolfeboro; a larger event – a surprise party — with the couple’s children, Cathy and Michael, and three grandchildren, was held the prior weekend at the Bayside Grill and Tavern in Wolfeboro.
McGinley is originally from Alfred, Maine, but he has lived in Brookfield for the past 36 years, with his wife, Virginia McGinley, to whom he has been married for 50 years.
McGinley does not talk much about his war time experiences, but did say he was “very proud to be a Marine,” and that he and the friends he had enlisted with all got home safely. He continues to volunteer locally at the Wright Museum.
