MacDONALD, William 'Bill' Angus MacDonald - Obituary | Print |

MacDONALD, William 'Bill' Angus - P. Eng.

Macdonald_BillOn February 28, 2014 in Cobourg, proudly "in my 90th year!"

Beloved husband of 63 years of Dorelle (Monahan). Loving and proud father and father-in-law of Bill (Jane), Mary, Jim, Joe (Irene), John (Sonja Schroedter), Susan (Stephen Hinton), Dorelle (Jeff Roberts), Kate (Reiner Estrada).

Proud grandfather of Kelly (Ken Huston), Stephen (Caleigh); Kathryn (Matt), John, Jennifer; Patrick (Charlene), Michael, Mark; Travis, Cameron; Dorelle, Alexander; Brendan, Thomas, Alexandra; Rebecca, Sebastian, Monica. Thrilled great grandfather of Adrianna, William and Owen. Predeceased by sister Mary (Killoran, Smart) and brother Rowan.

Mourned by sisters Ann Dolan, Ruth (Jim) McGrath, in-laws Sylvia MacDonald, Stephen Monahan, Mary Chard and Barbara Webster and his many nieces and nephews.

WWII veteran (Artillery), U of T 4T8 Engineering, long-term Imperial Oil employee.

Many happy years were spent on their dream farm in Hastings ON, to which Bill retired at a youthful 58. He formed lasting friendships and loved hosting all visitors at the round table in the kitchen. From his computer control desk he composed 'odes,' managed his " ’43 Army Course gang” and their reunions, organized church and community committees, solved Canada's political problems, linked relatives near and far with his many emails, and would happily ‘Skype’ with anyone willing at any hour.

Family reunions were a particular joy, (although Mom did all of the work!). While health issues kept them from living at "Monahmac Farm" this past year, Bill and Dorelle were able to have many precious visits there, surrounded by their large, loud brood.

Bill was a force of nature who lived life to the fullest. He made everyone whom he met feel special. He guided his children to parent with “unconditional love." Bill had a very deep faith and we take great comfort in knowing he is now in Heaven.

We would like to thank the staff at Palisade Gardens, Bill’s many healthcare providers over the past year, and most especially Dr. Mark Essak for his generous and compassionate care.

Funeral Mass will take place on Monday, March 10th at 11:30am, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Hastings. Reception to follow at Dreamland Resort, Hastings.

In lieu of flowers, and in honour of son Jim, please consider donating to Community Living, Peterborough.
