Concluding the final chapter in a love story that lasted over 65 years, David MacKay McClughan passed away on what would have been his beloved wife Christine's 89th birthday, a year and a day from the anniversary of her death. Born April 24th, 1918 in Vancouver, Dad spent the bulk of his childhood growing up on his grandparent's farm in Innisfail, Alberta. He loved animals, horses in particular, of which he was a gifted rider. As a young couple, he and Chris moved to North Vancouver where he built his own home and lovingly raised his family and served the community. Dad was a strong, kind and humble person with a zeal for living that he shared with everyone. Work for him was a joy which he continued into his late 80's. He leaves behind many people grateful to have known and love him, including but not limited to son Glen (Sue), daughter Ellen, grandchildren Daniel, Michael, Brodie, Conner, Madeline and great granddaughter, Marissa. Our family would like to thank the staff at Capilano Care for their care and kindness.
God speed Davey boy, say hi to Mum for us. Love you always.
A celebration of David's life will be held at Highlands United Church, North Vancouver on January 25th at 2 pm.
