Macdonald, Malcolm Christie
June 5, 1926 – May 30, 2010
Loved, and was loved.
With great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend.
Mal will be dearly missed by Bernice, his wife and best friend of 57 years, his loving children and their spouses Cheryl and Brent, Ross and Cathie, and Ian and Marlene, and his three precious granddaughters Sara, Kelly, and Caitlin. His gracious, welcoming ways and great company will also be missed by nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Mal left the Prairies to travel the seas in the Navy and following World War II applied his trade as radar technician. For 35 years he worked at this job that he loved, first in Victoria at Island Tug and Barge and later in Vancouver at Seaspan. Upon retirement, Mal and Bernice were able to take several trips together, including visits to Scotland to connect with family there. They also enjoyed winters in Mesa, Arizona, spending many happy days lawn bowling and golfing. At home, they continued to pursue these interests as well as spend time at their camp in Washington. They enjoyed a happy and loving life together.
A service of remembrance and celebration of Mal’s life will be held on Saturday, June 19th at 11:30 a.m. at Hazelmere Golf and Country Club, 18150 – 8th Avenue, Surrey, B.C.
