McKEAGUE, Justin Alexander November 7, 1924 January 5, 2007 Died peacefully at home surrounded by family members. Alex was born to the late Samuel and Nora McKeague and grew up during the great depression on a farm near Sibbald, Alberta, in the dustbowl of the Palliser Triangle. He did a stint in the army in the Second World War and used his entitlement to attend university. He subsequently worked as a school teacher and in soil survey before discovering his true profession in soils research. In December 1961, after obtaining his doctorate at Cornell University, Alex and his family came to Ottawa. He had a productive career at Agriculture Canada for 35 years. He loved his job and was always grateful to the Canadian government for giving him the education that enabled him to find his niche. His career included a posting to Tanzania to work with the Canadian International Development Agency from 1986 to 1989. After retirement, he devoted his energies to environmental sanity, social justice, refugees and tennis. He was always frank about his dislikes, chief of which was wearing a suit and tie. Alex leaves behind his wife Jane McKeague (nee Thompson), with whom he spent 54 loving and eventful years of marriage. He is also mourned by his son Paul (Katya Feder) McKeague and his daughters Elly (Mark Haughey) McKeague, Martha (Don) Hall, Shirley (Peter) Stanton and Ruth (David Gardner) McKeague. Alex was the delighted and devoted grandfather of Isaac, Sarah and Samuel McKeague; Lucas and Kate Parker; Rebecca, Madeline and Bridget Hall; Crystal, Taylor and Haley Stanton; Rachael, Charlotte and Elizabeth Gardner. He is also survived by his brother Vernon (Jackie) McKeague and sister Florence (Don) Menck. He faced death with grace and courage. "I'm ready for the road," he said. The family would like to thank all the health professionals who provided able and compassionate care over the last three years. The family also appreciates the support given by church and friends. In recent years, Alex was part of a group at Trinity United Church who established a foundation to redistribute wealth from the affluent to the poor of the world. Those who would like to make donations in Alex's memory may do so to the Trinity Jubilee Foundation, Trinity United Church, 1099 Maitland Ave., Ottawa, ON, K2C 2B8. There will be no visitation. Memorial service at 10 a.m., Wednesday, January 10, Trinity United Church. Reception to follow immediately thereafter in the church hall. Published in the Ottawa Citizen from 1/6/2007 - 1/8/2007
