Bryan E. McFee

August 01, 1955 - December 06, 2018

Bryan E. McFee Bryan E. McFee, age 63, of Crane Hill, Alabama, died Thursday, December 6, 2018.
Born on August 1, 1955 in Roanoke, Alabama, Bryan played football at the University of Utah and graduated from UAB with a degree in mechanical engineering. Bryan and his beloved wife, Carol Mae, lived on Smith Lake along with a succession of devoted and very spoiled canines.
A natural leader, Bryan was cherished by his family and countless friends for his kindness, generosity and sense of humor. An avid outdoorsman, Bryan enjoyed hiking, canoeing, skiing, fishing or just admiring the sunset from the dock.
Bryan was a talented woodworker. He loved crafting things with his own hands - from exquisite bowls to full-size canoes. He was a member of Cullman First United Methodist Church where he served in many positions and was an enthusiastic member of the choir.
Bryan liked nothing better than a campfire, surrounded by close friends laughing and telling stories into the night. He will be greatly missed.
Bryan is survived by his wife of 32 years, Carol Mae McWhorter McFee; his sister, Rebecca McFee Robertson (Jim); and many loving nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Dr. and Mrs. E.L. McFee; and his sister, Beverly McFee Jones.
Visitation will be from 9-10:45 a.m. on Friday, December 14, 2018 at Cullman First United Methodist Church. A celebration of life service will follow at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Cullman First United Methodist Church (Building or Choir Fund), McFee Scholarship Fund at Trinity United Methodist Church in Homewood, Alabama or a charity of your choice.

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Bryan at work. He was so friendly and good to work with. I really enjoyed talking to him about his woodwork. His work is amazing. He also told me about his wife and her love for woodwork. It was so inspiring. I could tell he was passionate about his love for his wife, family and hobbies. We will miss seeing him at IP.

Bryan was a dear friend of my brother, Roy. I met Bryan several times over the last 24 years including camping on Smith Lake. Bryan loved the outdoors and all the beauty it held. This love of all things that grew, he literally took wood that appeared to have no usefulness and turned it into a piece of beauty. Bryan adored Carol Mae who shared his many life passions. You will be missed. May his memory keep him close to your heart.

I only knew Bryan for a short time and he shared so many things with me. My husband has cramps very much and he told me about a spray that would help me. He also shared his wood work with me and the way he talked about you, Carol was precious. His eyes brightened was he was talking about you and the work that you and him did. You were loved. The angels are singing because he is with them. My prayers are with you and I pray that God will keep you calm and help you with comfort. So sorry.
