Obituary for Donald R. McCord

Donald R. McCord, age 89, of Enfield, beloved husband of the late Myrna McCord for 58 years, entered into eternal peace Thursday June 11, 2020 due to natural causes.
The son of the late Fred and Emma McCord, Don was raised in West Hartford where he graduated from Hall High School, later becoming a resident of the Enfield community for over 60 years. Don was employed at United Technologies for more than 35 years before retiring. He was a founding member of the Enfield American Baptist Church, and served on numerous committees.
Don was a sports enthusiast. He loved watching the Red Sox, UCONN, golf, and Patriots games, of course, while eating a sweet treat. Watching Don watch a game was simply entertaining in itself; he brought such a passion to being a fan.
Don was a loving person with a big heart and a sharp sense of humor. He laughed easily and loved telling his jokes. Don also enjoyed family dinners with his loved ones and always looked forward to parties and celebrations.
Don is survived by his son Michael James McCord and his wife Janet of Chilton, WI., his daughter Melissa (McCord) Bednarz and her husband David of Enfield, CT, his grandson Zachary McCord Bednarz, and his granddaughters, Caitlyn A. McCord and Hannah H. Bednarz. He also leaves a sister Joan McCord of Newington, CT, and two sisters-in-law, Kathy Maynard of Orland, ME and Barbara McCord of Wethersfield, CT.
He also leaves many loving cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was predeceased by a brother Harry McCord, sisters Dorothy Gallagher, Constance Wilkinson and a brother-in-law James Maynard.
Don’s family would like to extend a special thank you to all of the staff at Evergreen Healthcare Center for their countless hours of support and tremendous care.
Due to the current public crisis, services will be held privately. Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels has care of arrangements. For online condolences, please visit

Don used to bring his wife Myrna to my Salon many years ago. He was such a caring, loving husband to her. May you find peace knowing they are together again 🙏 sending love to the family!

Melissa, we are so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. Always a pleasure seeing him & your mom around the school. Thinking of you and your family during this time.

Melissa, Michael, and families, it was my great privilege to know and love both of your parents. Your dad's obituary beautifully captures all of his best qualities--his passion for sports, his love of his family, his dedication to his community. I can hear his voice in my ear as I type--the stories he would share about Myrna and the founding of EABC, and the pride that would overflow as he would speak of his children and grandchildren. You are all in my prayers.

McCord family, my deepest sympathy for your loss. I met Don at the Enfield Senior Center not long after Myrna passed and it quickly became clear how special he was. A true gentleman, very articulate and caring of others. He spoke often about his beloved wife and his family. It was a pleasure to meet and spend time with him. God speed Don.
