Esselmont, Donald McVicar (Mac)

April 27, 1939 – April 4, 2022
at the age of 82 years:

     There will be a Celebration of Life and reception at Fishers Funeral Service on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at 2pm.  

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Donald McVicar (Mac) Esselmont on April 4, 2022 at 82 years old in Salmon Arm, BC. 

Born on April 27, 1939 in Stewart, BC he was well known for his fun loving spirit, wit, quick laughter and lifelong love of golf.

Predeceased by his parents William and Muriel, his brother William and sister Patricia, he will be lovingly remembered by his sister Lynn (David), ex-wife Maureen, daughters Tanya (Rob), Nicole (Jay) and Kelly, grandchildren Tyler, Matthew, Jayne, Katelyn, Ryan and Tristan as well as many nieces and nephews. 

Mac moved to Maple Ridge in 1944 at the age of 5 and moved with his family to Smithers in 1978, to Victoria in 1991 and finally to Salmon Arm in 1997 where he enjoyed many rounds of golf with friends and family. In 2017 he moved into Arbor Lodge where his quick smile and happy demeanour more than made up for his inability to communicate with words due to the Aphasia he suffered from since 2016. 

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the staff and care givers at both Arbour Lodge and Mt. Ida Mews. 

There will be a Celebration of Life and reception at Fishers Funeral Service on May 24, 2022 at 2pm.  


  1. My Sympathies to Don’s family. Lynn, Carol (Hendrickson) Anderson and I were so sorry of Don’s passing

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Don. He was always a pleasure to be around. We had a lot of good laughs together. Heaven is probably a lot more fun right about now. He will be missed, and my thoughts are with his family.

  3. I am so sorry to learn of Don’s passing. I just saw it in the Shuswap Market paper today I have many good memories of Don as we were involved for a time. My sincere sympathies to his family and friends. He will be missed.
