In loving memory ~
With a broken heart we have to announce the passing of Jack McKay. He died peacefully on Monday, September 4th at Rainbow Gardens in Port Alberni. Jack was born in Comox and raised in Union Bay.
He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Joan; daughter, Lana; son, Todd; beloved grandchildren, Ashley (Will), Carly (Paul) Courtney (Travis) and Nathan; great grandsons, Jack, Bennett, and Brooks; brother, Patrick (Jan); nephews, Mike and Dan and their families; sister, Sheryl; nieces, Lucinda, Robyn and Trisha; as well as a large extended family in both Union Bay and Courtenay. He was predeceased by his parents, Tom and Milla McKay.
Our family would like to thank Dr Daryl Lund, who has been there for us with encouragement and support throughout the 17 years, and to Drs Marsay and Dana and Cindy. A special thanks to the staff of Rainbow Garden for the loving and compassionate care he received during his time with them.

A limb has fallen from the family
Tree that says do grieve not for me
Remember the best times, the laughter,
The song of good life I loved when I was strong.
