Mr. Alfred Churchill Lockyer McKay, born 8 September 1916 in Glasgow Scotland, passed away suddenly on 19 April 2008 in Kelowna, B.C., at the age of 91.
He was predeceased by his loving wife of 65 years Freda (Mix), his brother John, and his grandson, Kenneth.
Lovingly survived by his children, Elizabeth, James (Jessie) and Marilyn (James), his eight grandchildren, his twenty-five great grandchildren and his sister Janet (Harry) and his brother-in-law, Emmanuel (Helena).
He graduated from the School of Hard Knocks with flying colours. Alfred emigrated to Canada at age 14, working on farms in Tilsenberg, Ontario and Richmond B.C. to pay for his passage. He retired from the Vancouver School Board having risen to the position of senior gardener. He enjoyed a comfortable retirement with his family residing in North Vancouver and for a short period in Abbotsford B.C. Dad’s passion was serving his Lord, using his wonderful tenor voice in glorious songs.
We love you, we miss you and we will see you again.
