There exist roughly 10, 000 stars for each grain of sand on Earth. Maynard “Mac” McCune often shared this astonishing fact with others to express his sense of awe and reverence for life and the universe.
Mac will be lovingly remembered by his son, Stuart (Monique) of Steinbach, MB; daughter, Marilyn of Seattle, WA; granddaughters, Stephanie (Todd) of Nanaimo, BC, and Bryce of Washington, DC; and great-grandchildren, Noah and Ruby. Mac will also be dearly missed by his nieces, nephews, and many friends.
Mac was predeceased by his loving wife of 50 years, Isabelle “Bell” Grace (nee Burke); son, Murray; grandson, Michael; brothers: Charlie, Melvin, Victor; sisters, Vivian and Winnie; and his parents Oscar and Stella.
Mac was born in Strome, AB (1925-1929), and lived in Killam, AB (1929-1935), Lougheed, AB (1935-1944), Edmonton, AB (1944-2017) and Steinbach, MB (2012-2021). Mac was deeply rooted and thrived in his Alberta home until the age of 92 years. Across those years, Mac worked as a paper delivery boy (1935-), reserve militia (Sarcee, AB, 1939-1941), taxi driver (1945-1946), shoe salesman, teacher (1949, Rocky Mountain House; 1951, Swalwell, AB; 1953, Standard, AB; 1954, Edmonton, AB) and realtor (Melton Realty) before joining Edmonton Catholic Schools (1962-1986) as teacher (O’Leary High School), vice principal
(St. Mark Junior High School), and principal (St. Clare Elementary & Junior High School). Mac was the kindest and most faithful soul. A remarkably gentle man, he withstood great losses in his life with grace, and resilience. He always expressed gratitude and lived the values of generosity, humility, respect, loyalty and charity. He was well loved and admired, and he is profoundly missed.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Mac McCune 2021..
