MACQUEEN, Murdock ‘Junior’
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Murdock ‘Junior’ MacQueen on Thursday, August 10, 2017 peacefully at home. Born in New Waterford to Murdock and Faye MacQueen on October 31, 1949.
Murdock is survived by his loving wife of 43 years Joanne (Walsh); son, Christopher (Renata); daughter, Tracey (Shawn); grandchildren, Katelynn, Matthew, Emily, Christopher and Loagen; brothers and sisters, John, Blair, Brenda (Frankie), Gail (Tommy) and Wayne who will miss him dearly. He is predeceased by his parents, mother-in-law, Roseanne Mason; brothers-inlaw, Mickey, Frankie, Stewart, Dennis, Carson and sister-inlaw, Rosie. Junior worked at the Sydney Steel Plant for over 30 years, then after retirement travelled to Alberta and worked as a pipefitter. He was an honorary member of the KOC in New Waterford and enjoyed stopping in for a drink and a laugh or two.
Junior was an avid outdoorsman; loved making trips to Gabarus hunting and fishing accompanied by his son-in-law, Shawn; buddies Kenny, Dinx and Keith. In the early years he enjoyed hunting and fishing with his two brothers-inlaw Stewart and Frankie and his trips with Gerard to Lake Ainslie and the many tarabish games with good friend, Wayne. He also enjoyed his many fishing trips with his son, Chris and grandsons, Christopher and Loagen as well as heading to the track with his sonin-law, Shawn. He was never one to turn a meal down and so enjoyed his family suppers at Gail and Brenda’s. He was a gentleman who catered and spoiled his girls Tracey, Katelynn and Emily.
He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and contagious laugh.
Cremation has taken place and a chapel service will take place Monday, August 14, 2017 at 2 p.m. with Deacon Leo Penny officiating followed by a luncheon at the K.O.C., Plummer Ave., all are welcome.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of McLellan Brothers Funeral Home, 3183 Plummer Ave., New Waterford 902-862-7500
