MacRAE _ Dr. Roy Allan Dr. Roy Allan MacRAE passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 10, 2009 surrounded by his family. Born in Vanguard, Saskatchewan on September 10, 1930, Roy spent much of his childhood moving around the province with his family. In 1954, he graduated with his degree in pharmacy from the University of Saskatoon. The next year, he married the love of his life, Kathleen Audna Stewart. Shortly after graduating, they moved to Calgary and welcomed a son in 1958 and a daughter in 1960. Roy then moved his family to Edmonton in 1963 to pursue dentistry. In 1966 he welcomed his second daughter. He graduated in 1967 from the University of Alberta. After graduation, they moved back to Calgary where he began a devoted and dedicated dental practice that lasted for forty-one years, continuing right up to his passing. Aside from continuing to practice dentistry, Roy spent much of his spare time at his ranch with his wife up until her passing in 2007. In the past, he has been an accomplished trumpet, violin and bagpipe player and was a member of the Calgary Highlanders for a number of years. He was also a contributing member of the Masons and the Kiwanis Club. His recent hobbies included ship building, movie collecting, gardening, farming, bird watching and photography. Roy had a lively sense of humor and an infectious smile. Roy was the son of Allan and Ellen Bullis (MacRAE) and husband to Kathleen Audna Stewart (MacRAE). He was a brother to David, Robert and Dorothy Jean, father to Allan (Rose), Deanne (Rick) and Susan (Jean Francois), grandfather to Katie, Curtis, Melinda (Rolland) and Bryan, and great-grandfather to Lucas. He will be missed by his family as well as his friends, colleagues and patients.
