Dr. Bruce J. McGann



Dr. Bruce J. McGann (April 29, 1952-September 29, 2017) - Passed suddenly and peacefully September 29, 2017. Bruce was born in Staten Island, NY, raised his family in Mount Laurel, NJ and most recently lived in Hardeeville, SC. He is pre-deceased by his parents, Vivian and Donald McGann. He is survived by his loving and caring wife of 34 years, Allison (nee Aliotta), children Christopher (Melanie), Kaitlyn and her fiancé Justin, Kyle (Lorraine), and his brother Gregory (Ron). He was a hard worker, esteemed colleague, but most importantly he prided himself on his title of “Dad”. Above all else, he was a family man, providing comic relief in the form of off key singing and two left-feet dancing whenever possible. He began his career as a pulmonologist at LICH in 1981, switching focus to work as a hospitalist initially at Our Lady of Lourdes in Camden, NJ and then at Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, SC. In the work place, he was known for his welcoming demeanor, dry sense of humor, and loved mentoring his resident physicians. He and his wife were surrounded by loving friends, with busy weekends full of dancing, board games, and rounds of golf. Bruce was a simple and good man. He was happiest when around his friends and family, including his dogs. He left a lasting impact and touched many he came across in his personal and professional endeavors, spanning from New York to South Carolina. He will be missed and cherished by all of those who knew and loved him. In lieu of flowers, donations to the American Heart Association are welcome. Services will be held at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 at Sauls Funeral Home, 90 Simmonsville Road, Bluffton, SC 29910. The family will be receiving friends from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the service. A memorial service will also be held in Mount Laurel, NJ at a later date, yet to be determined.
