MULCASTER, Randal Grahame P.Eng. (Civil)
May 7, 1918 – November 6, 2011
Randy passed away November 6, 2011 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, BC. He will be sadly missed by his wife Isabel, son Ian, grandchildren Valerie and Livia, daughter Janet (Ron) older sister Wynona along with nieces and nephews.
Randy grew up in Prince Albert Saskatchewan. When WWII broke out he left University and enlisted. As a Lieutenant in the Ontario Tank Regiment he served in North Africa, Italy and European campaigns. After the War, Randy returned to University to complete his Civil Engineering degree. His professional life led to work surveying parts of the Trans Canada Highway though Banff and, later, as Department of Highways Manager, he was responsible for building and managing many of the highways throughout BC in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
Randy’s work brought him and Isabel to the Comox Valley in 1965 where they settled and raised their family. They were always up for adventure, the outdoors, travel and time with friends and family. He enjoyed an active life style during his 30+ years of retirement. We will miss his humour and pragmatic straightforward approach to life.
A celebration of life will be held at Piercy’s Funeral Home, 440 England Ave. on November 19th at 11am.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Red Cross in Randy’s memory.
