August 14, 1933 – October 9, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Malcolm Martin MacNeil on October 9, 2012 in Comox, BC. Mac was predeceased by his sister, Mary and his brothers, Hector and Peter.
Mac is survived by his loving wife, Theresa of 50 years, son Peter (Jody) of Mississauga, Ontario and daughter Catherine (George) of Calgary, Alberta, grandchildren; Jordache, Hunter and Courtney, sister Anne (Odie) Bonnell of Sydney, Nova Scotia, nieces and nephews; Shawn MacNeil, Peter MacNeil, Peter Fedora, Alan Fedora, Eddie Fedora, George Fedora, David Fedora, Sandy MacNeil, Betty O’Neil, Nancy Briand, Avitas Shield, Gary Bonnell, Karen Bonnell and Darlene MacQuin.
Mac worked at several hospitals across Canada prior to settling in the Comox Valley in 1957, where he worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital for 41 years until retiring in 1998. He was a man who truly loved his job and the patients he served. In Mac’s leisure time he enjoyed bowling and golfing. He was an avid Montreal Canadians Fan and later in life a Canucks Fan. Mac had a great sense of humour and was much loved and respected in his community. He also enjoyed his long walks, a great rivalry with his son-in-law and cheering on the BC Lions and Calgary Stampeders.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Mac’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
