In Memory
Angus Gerard MacDonald

Our friend and co-worker passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, June 4, 2022.  He  was a well-respected member of our team for 27 years.  Gerard was “always there”, for us, his family, and friends. He was a welcoming presence, who loved meeting and talking to people.  We a most grateful for the time we had with him and will cherish his memory.

“Eternal rest grant unto 
Gerard, O Lord,
and let perpetual light 
shine upon him
May his soul and all the souls
of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
Rest in peace.
Amen”
