MacGregor, With great sorrow, we announce that on September 04, 2004, Francis (Frank) David MacGregor passed away peacefully at Peach Arch Hospital. He is survived by Vivian, his wife of over sixty years, and his three children and their spouses - Gary and Linda, Chris and Liz, and May Jean and Kevin. Frank was born on May 20, 1920, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was there that he met and married the first and only love of his life, Eva Vivian Akins. Frank enlisted into the Canadian Army Pay Corp at the age of nineteen where he rose to the rank of Captain. During his twenty-five year tour of service, he travelled extensively throughout Canada and Europe. After retiring from the service, Frank went on to work for the real estate firm of Akins and Wallace. Upon completion of night school, he received his certification from the Appraisal Institute of Canada and began work as an appraiser for the Province of Manitoba. In 1979, he and Vivian moved to Tsawwassen where they could be closer to family. Frank was an avid gardener and was renowned for his beefsteak tomatoes. He loved to play golf and for many years belonged to the Breezy Bend Golf Club in Winnipeg and to the Beach Grove Golf Club in South Delta. Frank was the original Mr. Fixit. He spent countless hours helping his family and his many friends with their home projects. Frank shared in the enjoyment of watching his grandchildren grow up and marry - Andrea to Trevor and Steven to Cherise. He was a devoted great-grandfather to Roshod, Dominic, Cameron, Mackenzie, and Kayla. He thought himself a truly blessed man. His family held a sharing of loving memories on Tuesday, September 7, at Victory Memorial Park Cemetery in White Rock. In lieu of flowers, kindly make a donation to the charity of your choice.

MACKENZIE, Emily passed away peacefully at her home in Langley on Saturday September 4, 2004. Emily was born Emily Margaret Cherry on October 10, 1911 in Ottawa, Ontario. She is survived by her daughter Francis, Langley, and sons, Edwin (Sharon), Vernon, Cameron (Luci), Langley, and Jim (Lynda), Kamloops and 8 grandchildren, Duncan, Erin, John, Sandy, Cameron, Lochie, Conor and Bren. She was predeceased by her husband, Duncan, her 4 brothers and 3 sisters. Emily and Duncan moved to BC in 1950. They settled on a dairy farm in Glen Valley, just east of Fort Langley. Duncan initially farmed and then taught at UBC while Emily focused her attention on raising the four children. In 1976, several years after Duncan had passed away, Emily moved into Langley City. Emily enjoyed traveling, painting, knitting, needlework and sports. Her real love and joy were her Grandchildren. Granny as they called her, always enjoyed the opportunity to go and watch any sport they participated in and to hear about their activities. Emily loved sports and keenly followed tennis, hockey and golf. Each summer, she enjoyed spending several weeks in Parksville. Although, Emily loved the beauty of BC's oceans and mountains, she always liked to reminisce about her formative years in Ontario where some things like the Fall colors and cold crisp Winter days were just a bit better than what B.C. had to offer. Emily will be lovingly missed. At Emily's request, there will be no service, but a family gathering will be held to celebrate her life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Emily's memory to the CNIB Talking Books Program, c/o 5055 Joyce St, Vancouver, BC, V5R 6B2.
