Malcolm SABISTON Obituary
MALCOLM SABISTON Malcolm 'Mac' Renaldo Sabiston passed peacefully at North York General Hospital in his 95th year on January 6, 2019. Mac was predeceased by the love of his life, June (née Marsden). Mac and June had 3 children: Judy Morgan, Mardy Hollingsworth, and John Sabiston (Vida Stripinis). Mac's 8 grandchildren were the centre of his life: Julia Morgan, David Morgan (Sally), and Jenna Giga (Farouk); Amy Hollingsworth (Justin Grant) and Kerry Caleb (Eric); and Jeffrey Sabiston, Trevor Sabiston (Cailin Munroe), and Milda Sabiston (Matthew Osborne). Mac was also thrilled about the arrival of his 1st great-grandchild, Pip Morgan, and was looking forward to others. Born in Toronto, Mac was the eldest child of Ken and Von (née McConnell). He was predeceased by siblings Colin Sabiston and Lois Howard. His studies at University of Toronto Engineering were interrupted by 2 years in the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Air Force where he flew in England until WWII ended. He had an accomplished career at Sangamo Electric/ Schlumberger improving on the Watt Hour Meter and a weather research Radiosonde, and later led their production as plant General Manager, then Vice-President of Operations. He later embarked on a second career with EEMAC (Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers Association of Canada) where he helped modernize many standards. He enjoyed a joyful retirement with family, friends and his many hobbies, which included sailing, woodworking and genealogy. Mac's life will be celebrated in the upcoming summer at the family cottage on Washago Bay, Lake Scugog. Please contact 905-815-9332 or [email protected] if you wish to attend.
