Obituary of Matthew John Magee
MAGEE, Matthew John, 72, of Niagara-on the Lake, ON, passed away on Monday, May 27, 2019. Born in Dublin, Ireland, he was the son of the late Michael & Monica Magee. Matthew worked in the shipping industry for over 40 years, in England, South Africa, Germany and Canada. He had a love for travelling. At a young age he left home and ventured out to explore many countries. He enjoyed reading and always had a book on his lap. Lately he was intrigued with quotes by Sir Winston Churchill. His favorite was « We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give ». He was a master at telling jokes which he always managed to not get quite right, but loved telling them none the less.
