July 23, 1938 – August 24, 2019
It is with sadness we announce the
sudden passing of Angus Stuart MacGregor on
August 24, 2019 at the age of 81 in Kamloops,
British Columbia (BC).
Angus is survived by his son Graham MacGregor (Sheri Watson),
grandchildren Sarah, Erin and Gavin, and his long-time friend Sharon Rhodes, as
well as his sister Harriett Dickie and family from Pincher Creek, Alberta.
Angus was predeceased by his parents, Eldon and Mary MacGregor,
long-time partner of 40 years, Elly Van Ramele and brother in-law Ken Dickie.
Angus was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and his teen years were spent
in Calgary, Alberta (AB). After high school Angus moved to Edmonton, AB, where
he attended University of Alberta, playing football as a Running Back with the
Golden Bears. Following graduation, Angus worked for the Calgary Board of
Education as an Elementary school teacher for more than
30 years. An avid reader himself, Angus took great pride in teaching
young minds to love reading and developed an extensive library of children’s
books in his classroom. Angus appreciated the outdoors and his summers often
included hiking or camping trips that brought him to BC. In fall of 2016, Angus moved to Kamloops to be closer to his
son. In recent years, Angus enjoyed watching his son and grand kids at
their sports; whether it was soccer, volleyball or late-night hockey, he was
frequently there watching on the sidelines. Angus will be remembered for his love
of nature and sports (Go Montreal Canadiens!) as well as his amazing ability to
retain information, whether it was related to politics, current events, or some
small detail like the name of your childhood pet. He will be greatly missed.
A celebration of life will be held with family and friends in
Calgary at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Organization
