The Victoria Standard - - Obituaries / Notices -

We, the fam­ily of John Alexan­der Mack­in­non ‘Johnny John Alex’, with great sor­row and sad­ness, mark the pass­ing of his death, on Dec. 14, 2017. He passed away peace­fully at the age of 85 sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily.

Papa will be for­ever missed by his eight daugh­ters, Donna (Ju­nior) Dun­phy, Wanda (Lisa) Mack­in­non, Marcena (Wil­son) Boutilier, Jackie (Timmy) Tim­mons, Ann Aleta (Roger ‘Dickie’) Mack­in­non, Kath­leen (Allen James) Mac­don­ald, Debbie (El­don) Tim­mons and Juanita (Aun­dre) Mack­in­non; 22 grand­chil­dren; 38 great-grand­chil­dren and 2 great-great grand­sons, as well as ex­tended fam­ily, “across the path”. He is also sur­vived by sis­ters, broth­ers, nieces, neph­ews, cousins and other fam­ily and friends. Papa will also be missed by his “fa­vorite daugh­ter” Beatrice who was very spe­cial to him and Mama. Last, but not least, Dr. Ni­cola Smith who held a spe­cial friend­ship and bond with Papa. He con­sid­ered her part of his ex­tended fam­ily.

Be­sides his wife and par­ents, he was pre­de­ceased by four chil­dren in in­fancy as well as nu­mer­ous broth­ers and sis­ters.

Papa loved the out­doors and spent most of his ca­reer as a Fish­er­man/trap­per. He had a great love for cars, his fa­vorite be­ing his old 68’ Pon­tiac. He also en­joyed a good “feed” of fish, es­pe­cially when Dy­lan would come across the path with trout. Birthdays were a spe­cial time of year for Papa, es­pe­cially when it came to his beloved Emma, who he cel­e­brated faith­fully with for the past 19 years. Noth­ing com­pared to the love he had for his soul­mate, his wife, Mar­cella, who pre­de­ceased him last year on Dec. 13, 2016. They were in­sep­a­ra­ble through­out their lives. He was known to have spent time in the gar­den with her plant­ing flow­ers which most likely would have been Black-eyed Su­san see­ing as they were her fa­vorite. They were al­ways to­gether, al­ways happy, and al­ways smil­ing. There will be a void in the fam­ily with­out them, but they are to­gether again, happy and smil­ing, we are sure of it.

A fu­neral ser­vice cel­e­brat­ing the lives of John Alexan­der and Mar­cella Mack­in­non was held Dec. 21, at Asby Bay United Church with Rev. Carolyn Sharpe of­fi­ci­at­ing. In­ter­ment will take place in St. An­drews Ceme­tery. If de­sired, do­na­tions may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion or the Cana­dian Di­a­betes As­so­ci­a­tion.
