Alan Macdonald 1927-2023
It is with great sorrow that we mark the passing of Alan Lawrence Macdonald. Alan passed away peacefully on May 16, at the age of 95. He was a loving husband to Patricia (dec) and father to Colin (dec), Doug (Ava Armstrong), Glenn (Donna Macdonald), and Scott (Marianne Yong-Macdonald). Alan was brother to Colin, Rod, Malcolm and is survived by his wonderful sister, Jean (Murray Cockburn).
He is Grandfather to Corinna, Benjamin, Adrienne, Heather, Margot, Mawgan, Malcolm, Kipp, Kiana and Naaman. And, he is Great Grandfather to Theodore, Emanuele, Isla, Harrison, Marlow, and Avalyn.
As one of our friends put it, “Al was a larger than life character.” He will be missed dearly. Special thanks to the caring staff at Idlewyld Manor.
Cremation has taken place. Services to be held at a later date.
My deepest thoughts are with you all. I met Alan many years ago. My father, Rod, always spoke so fondly of him. I am sure he will be missed.
Please accept my deepest condolences on your dear Dad’s recent passing. Alan’s quick wit and smile will be missed by all at Idlewyld Manor. Please cherish the memories of him and hold them close to your heart.
