MATTHEW ROBERT MCFARLANE September 17, 1993 - March 8, 2013 It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Matthew Robert MCFarlane after a courageous and valiant battle with cancer. Son of Mary-Ellen and Michael. Loving brother to Mitchell and Mark. Predeceased by his grandparents Muriel and Carl MCFarlane, and Dorothy and Robert Graham. Nephew to Connie and Kevin MCFarlane and Cindy and Kevin Spinney. Cousin to Kathleen, Carly and David. Matthew was a devoted son, brother, nephew and cousin to his family and enjoyed nothing more than getting together with his family and friends. His charming personality, warm smile, infectious laugh, kind and generous heart will be greatly missed. We have all learned from him what is meant to have true courage, determination and how to be a better person. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. James Rutka, Dr. Howard Petroff, Dr. Clive Schwartz and their staff. Visitation will be held at the DeStefano Funeral Home (1289 Keith Ross Drive, Oshawa 905-440-3595) on Thursday, March 14th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Friday, March 15th at 11 a.m. Interment to follow at Duffin Meadows Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to Camp Oochigeas (a camp for children with cancer) would be appreciated by his family. Donations may be made at Memories and condolences may be shared at
