Dear Heather and Janet and grandkids ,
We were sad to hear of the Passing of Mac. We were neighbours of Mac and Helen (and girls) for many years on Galligan Road.
We always enjoyed our visits with them.
Both Helen and Mac so enjoyed their time down at the lake either at their favorite spot on the beach or sitting on the dock.
We still see them sitting by the lake.
They both were truly part of Eagle Bay and they will be missed.
Good memories of Murdo and Helen when they were residents of Eagle Bay. They took part in many community activities at the hall and the church. Murdo was part of the small volunteer construction team that enlarged the church, but his favourite role there was to assist the children ring the old-fashioned bell after Sunday Service. He played his other favourite role was at the hall, arriving as Santa Claus for the children’s Christmas party
Now Murdo and Helen are together again. God bless.
Thanks Uncle Murdo for all the fun.
I have many good memories of Murdo as we worked together
on the New Westminster Police Department for many years.
He was a kind and generous man with a big heart and a good
sense of humor.
