Long Description:
One of two dedicated benches within Sturdivant Park and near a boat ramp contains a plaque that reads:

DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY
OF
HAROLD McCUE
BY
KIWANIS CLUB OF COQUILLE

I was able to locate an online obituary from FindaGrave.com which mentions a memorial service for Harold and his wife, Eva. It also mentions that Harold was missing and presumed to have died in 1983!:

Memorial services for Eva and Harold McCue will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the First Christian Church in Coquille with pastor Mary Scherpf officiating. Private interment for Mrs. McCue will be at Sunset Memorial Park in Coos Bay.

Mrs. McCue was born March 17, 1893 in Myrtle Point and died February 4 in Coquille. She and Harold McCue were married January 10, 1924 in Coos County. He is missing and presumed to have died in 1983. She was a lifetime resident of Myrtle Point, Lee Valley, and Coquille, and was the granddaughter of Joseph Bradford Lee and Marilla Huntley who pioneered Lee Valley on a 300-acre ranch in 1855. She was a member of the Coquille Grange, life member of Order of Eastern Star, a member of the First Christian Churches of Coquille and Myrtle Point, and the American Legion Auxiliary.

Survivors include her sister, Helen Comstock of Portland; and several nieces, Mr. McCue is survived by a brother, Jack McCue of Lakeside; a sister, Agnes Schroeder of Coquille. The family requests memorial contributions be made to the First Christian Church Memorial Fund. Arrangements are under the direction of Amling/Schroeder Funeral Service.

The World, February 5, 1987

I can only assume Harold was a longtime member of the local Kiwanis chapter.
