Burial will follow at the Downey Cemetery.
McCaughan, who is mourned by friends, family and a host of city and community figures, died of an apparent heart attack the evening of Friday, Sept. 4.
The McCaughan family, which totals 21 immediate relatives, as well as many who are more distant kin, has left a deep impression on the community. Gary McCaughan, Ed's son and the current Mayor of Downey, has championed the cause of neighborhood preservation, as taught and lived by his father. And the elder McCaughan, concerned by such nagging issues as the use of the land declared as excess by NASA and soon to be acquired by the City at the Boeing site, declared himself a November candidate for the soon to be vacated council seat in the Fourth District.
Ed and his wife, Katherine, have had a notable impact on the community through their children Gary (the Mayor), Pauline Barnes (principal in the Downey Unified School District), Noreen Gasdia (wife of Judge Brian Gasdia), and Karen Trejo (also a principal for the DUSD).
He was born in South Bend, Indiana on March 17, 1927. Ed arrived in Downey in 1938 at the age of 10. He married Katherine Vidovich, whom he met here, in 1952.
He attended Downey schools, graduating from Downey Union High School in 1944. He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, and received a Bachelor's of Science degree in business administration from USC in 1950. He retired from an upper management position at Revere Copper and Brass Corporation after 36 years with the firm.
He was active in the community, and was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Downey from the age of 11. He was a lifetime member of the choir. He served on the Downey YMCA Board of Managers, and the Board of the Self Insurance Association of the California Manufacturers Association. He was also a member of the Downey Jaycees, the Downey Historical Society, the Downey Symphonic Society, the 12:15 Club of Downey Community Hospital, and the Diamond Tread Model A Club. He was an enthusiastic supporter of Warren High and USC football.
The McCaughans kept in close touch with their children and hosted family brunches each Sunday after church. Ed shared with his son the ideal of community involvement and volunteerism.
He served for 18 years on the Personnel Commission of the Downey Unified School District. One of his goals, if elected to the Council, was closer cooperation between the City and schools.
He is survived by his wife, Katherine; his children, Dr. Gary McCaughan of Downey, Noreen Gasdia of Downey, Paula Barnes of Downey, Karen Trejo of Downey; 14 grandchildren, Katie Barnes, Scott Barnes, Michael McCaughan, Marc McCaughan, Lindsay McCaughan, Lauren McCaughan, Kristin Gasdia, Nicholas Gasdia, Andrew Gasdia, Jaclyn Gasdia, Karen Trejo, James Trejo, Gary Trejo, Katherine Trejo; three sisters, Eileen McClurg of Downey, Nora Grey of Whittier, Mabel Miner of Palos Verdes; and a brother, Fred McCaughan of Downey. He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Eleanor McCaughan of Downey, and two brothers, Robert McCaughan and James McCaughan.
He told the Downey Eagle in an earlier interview, "People who want to get involved will find there is an awful lot of things to get involved with." He said he stayed in Downey because he found stability and a caring community here. One that he felt safe raising his children in. He was a regular at City Council meetings long before he decided to run for a Council seat. His was a true civic interest. He will be deeply missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Ed McCaughan Memorial Choir Fund, c/o of First Presbyterian Church of Downey, 10544 Downey Ave., P.O. Box 5069, Downey, CA 90241.
