OBITUARY ANGUS ROBERT MCLEAN July 29, 1924 to December 28, 2004 After a short battle with cancer, in his eighty-first year. Born in Bathurst, New Brunswick, son of the late Gladys (Bean) and Angus Ethelbert McLean. Brother of Donald B. McLean (Margaret), and the late Elizabeth (Betty) and John Heward. Dad was the much loved husband for fifty-five years of Marilyn (Marr) McLean and adored and proud father and (father-in-law) of Barbara (Mort Mitchnick), Diane (Marc Ratcliffe), Debbie (Sean Waller) and Judy (Stephen Goddard). He will be greatly missed by his 6 special grandchildren, Matthew, Michael, Luke, Robbie, Scott and Allison, who loved and knew him as "Grunny Bob". He was also uncle to several nieces and nephews. Upon the early death of his father, the family moved to Montreal where he attended LCC and later Trinity College School. He served as a pilot in the RCAF from 1942 to 1945, and upon discharge studied at McGill University, graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce in 1950. A free spirit with a sense of entrepreneurial adventure, in 1951 Bob joined Hollinger Ungava Transport (Iron Ore Company of Canada) as a bush pilot and with Marilyn went north for 2 years, but stayed for 35. Upon his retirement they moved to Oakville and were able to travel and divide their time between Florida and summers at the beloved family cottage on Youghall Beach, N.B. where the highlight of every summer was when the family gathered. Dad had a tremendous circle of friends from every walk and stage of life who respected him for his lack of pretense, sense of fair play, loyalty, understated leadership and for his spirit. They kept in touch until the end. We thank the doctors of Oakville Trafalgar Hospital and the nurses and entire staff of 2C who were incredible. Visitation will be Tuesday, January 4 from 7 to 9 p.m. and a memorial service will be held on Wednesday, January 5 at 2:30 p.m. at Ward Funeral Home, 109 Reynolds St., Oakville (905-844-3221). In lieu of flowers, if desired, donations may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of your choice.
