In memory of
Michael J. McLaughlin
Michael Joseph "Mike" McLaughlin, 78, died peacefully Saturday, March 14, 2020, surrounded by family. Mike was born Jan. 14, 1942, in Rockville, Md., to George Joseph and Catherine Elizabeth McLaughlin, the second of eight children. He graduated from Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C., and earned a bachelor of science in business from the University of Maryland, graduating with high honors. Mike was predeceased by his wife of 35 years, Catherine Elmira (Harman) McLaughlin. He is survived by his wife of 17 years, Carol (Hays) McLaughlin, of Moon Township. He is also survived by his daughter, Kelly Ann McLaughlin, of Kennebunk, Maine; son, Michael Patrick McLaughlin, of Saco, Maine; and stepson, McKee Graham Dixon, of Moon Township. He was the beloved grandfather of Laura Catherine McLaughlin, Graham Patrick McLaughlin and Lidya Grace McLaughlin, all of Kennebunk, Maine. Mike is survived by five siblings, Dennis McLaughlin, Barbara Ozmore, Kathryn Lowery, Victor McLaughlin and Kenneth McLaughlin; and was predeceased by brothers, Steven McLaughlin and Robert McLaughlin. He will be missed by his many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends. Mike was a lover of dogs, most recently his beloved Kayla. He enjoyed playing golf, tennis, paddle-tennis, and cycling, and watching televised sports, especially soccer and rugby. He was a proud member of the S2000 Club of America and enjoyed attending rallies throughout the Northeast. Mike joined Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel (PDM) in 1969 as the first non-engineer to be accepted to its engineering training program. At the age of 28, he was assigned to manage a project in Western Australia, beginning a long career of international business. He was the founding president and general manager of PDM subsidiary Conservatek Inc. in Conroe, Texas, and the division manager of PDM-Johns Perry, Pty. Ltd. in Sydney, Australia. He finished his career with PDM in Pittsburgh as the manager of international operations. Following his retirement from PDM, he was an executive at Tippins Inc. and Stein Heurtey Inc. Mike was entirely devoted to his dearly loved family and friends and will be sorely missed. Donations may be made in his name to Good Samaritan Hospice House, 146 Neely School Road, Wexford, PA 15084. Burial will be private with service to follow at a later date.
