Richard (Bus) McClure passed away on Saturday, May 19 at the age of 77 after a long and tough battle with cancer. Survived by his beloved wife Sheila, family and friends, Bus worked in construction, driving concrete mixers and gravel trucks, ending his long career with Mike Vail Trucking. Bus was an avid gardener and in his retirement years liked working in his backyard and then sitting in the shade and enjoying his prized lilies. At Richard's request, there will be no Funeral Service. Instead the next time family and friends think of Bus, lift a cup in his honour and toast to a life well lived.
