We will always remember the house in King City where Nana and Pa would throw family gatherings. The property out back and the pond in the front were some of the key highlights when attending family events. We remember weeks up until the winter carnival asking our dad if Pa had flooded the ice. When we were younger he would work to make sure we would have somewhere to skate no mater what, even if it was only on the little pond. Say hey to Nana for us and we love you both!

Love,

Mitchell and Spencer

I’ve known Mr. C. for almost 50 years. I’m a childhood friend of his daughter Jean. I would have sleep-overs with Jean , as a teen, in Montreal. This brings one fond memory to mind... Jean’s father often sounded stern and Jean wasn’t always sure back then just how serious he was at any given time. I’d often be invited to stay for dinner. Mr. C. would always be after her to drink her milk (but when Jean wasn’t looking he’d wink at me). I’ve gone trailer camping with him and once got a photo of him way up the tree (with his pipe in his mouth) getting firewood, that became a long running private joke. Once Jean and Paul moved to Toronto, I’d go to visit as often as I could and Jean would take me to King City to see them, or they would come to Jean’s to see me. I was fortunate enough to be able to speak with him on the phone last Thanksgiving at Jean’s -for which I’ll always be grateful. I cared deeply for Mr. C. and thought of him as a second father. I loved him and will miss him.
My sympathies to Jean, Donnie, all his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchild.
R.I.P. Pa, and once again be with your Loving Wife, Anne, that you’ve missed for the last 13 years...
Love, Maureen

Father MacLean and I have wonderful memories of both Don and Anne. We were just talking the other day about them. Morning Mass, many lovely visits at their home and how they were so good to Father. We were Blessed to have both of them in our lives.
Masses will be offered. You, the family are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

May they rest in peace!
