Remembering Alan as a kind, honourable man with a compassionate heart.

Sincere condolences to Alan's family. We were school friends in Pincher Creek & our mothers taught school together.I am touched by all the testimonials from students, teachers & friends as we lost touch through the years. Alan sometimes remembered my birthday & would surprise me with a call & we did exchange family pictures of our respective families a few years ago. May God bless you & comfort you and I bet you are still singing up there in heaven.

This saddens me greatly to learn of Mr McQuarrie passing. He was one of the best teachers I ever had. He not only made science fun ( and made you think), but he also always lent an ear when you needed one.

My condolences to his family. The world lost a great teacher and man.

Mr McQuarrie was the kind of teacher that made a real impact in the life of his students. I remember his class very fondly and even though it's been almost 30 years I was just recalling a memory of something that he taught me and shared it with my children just the other day. He was a wonderful man, and I'm very sad to hear of his passing. I hope he knew how much of a mark he left on all the children that he taught.

I am so sad to hear that a great man and a amazing teacher has passed away. Mr. McQuarrie was one of the best teachers I had at Parkview. I will never forget how he called each of us the night before school started to introduce himself and warmly welcomed us to his class. I had him for home room and science. He was passionate about teaching, but he genuinely cared about his students more. He often spoke of his family and his love for singing. There is so much I can write about a wonderful man with a huge heart, a sense of humour (I think you need one to survive teaching jr high!) and an excellent role model. His booming voice and huge smile filled the room. I am thankful for the year I had him as a teacher. He left an imprint (and I actually enjoyed science for once!). Thank you Mr. McQuarrie. Rest in peace. My condolences to the family.

I'll never forget the first day of ninth grade when I walked into my homeroom at Parkview and my classmates, having seen "Mr. McQuarrie" written on the board, asked if the new science teacher was my dad. Alan certainly had a presence about him, and his deep, booming voice could easily seem intimidating to unruly teenagers, but his passion for science ignited a spark in all of us and his fondness for his students was clear. It didn't take long for him to win us over.

Soon after the start of the school year, we'd greet each other by playing off of our name. I'd cheerfully greet Alan with, "Hi Dad!" and he'd always return with, "Hi daughter!". It was our thing and it never got old. He always had time to listen, time to explain, and time for a smile, even once we had moved on to high school and would return to visit.

I am grateful that Alan found me through social media so that we could catch up over lunch last year. He spoke fondly of his family, retiring from teaching, of sharing his love of science at TWOS, and of course, barbershop. It was as if hardly any time had passed since that first day at Parkview, when actually, it been over 25 years. It meant a lot to the now-grown-up kid whose teachers were held in the highest regard and with the utmost respect.

Sending much love and sincere condolences to the McQuarrie family. May you find peace in each other at this difficult time.
