We read in the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting Newsletter about the death last winter of Father Gordon E. Mycue, a priest and former radio engineer. Mycue was 80.
Mycue was born in Woodville, Minn. He worked at several Twin Cities radio stations as a young man in on-air and technical and engineering positions. He was an amateur radio operator and musician.
During the 1940s Mycue was climbing a radio tower to make repairs when he struck by lightning. Escaping unscathed, he made the decision to become a priest and was ordained in 1949.
Following his ordination, Father Mycue served a number of parishes in the greater Twin Cities area; he worked for 23 years as pastor of St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Corcoran. Combining his passions, he served as director of radio and television for the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis for 22 years.
