(July 28, 1917 – Nov. 5, 2008)
Malcolm McKellar died in Chilliwack General Hospital following a brief illness.
Mal, as his friends knew him, was born in Chilliwack, but grew up in Burnaby.
He served in the Army during the Second World War, and worked as a marine engineer on coastal tugboats for most of his career.
Malcolm was predeceased by Delores (Dolly), his loving wife for 65 years.
He is survived by his younger brother: Gordon (Margaret); sons: Jamie and Rod (June); nephew, Steve (Sandra); granddaughters: Robin (Robert Carriere), Shelley (Jason Allen), Alia (Ben Hodgkins), Angela (Steve Thorne) and Devon.
He was delighted to be a great-grandfather to Malcolm, Hope and Trent.
A family memorial gathering will be held in December.
Donations in his memory can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
