Vincent E. MacDonald



Born June 8, 1936 in Millville, Nova Scotia; passed away peacefully on Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 at Penticton Regional Hospital with his family by his side. Vince will be deeply missed by his best friend and loving wife of 47 years Dyane; sons Ted (Rita), Kerry (Eve); daughters Kim and Anne-Marie (Darrell); grandchildren James, Jennifer, Darcy, Jack, Philip and Jessica; sister Louise; brothers Allan, Laverne, Michael and John as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was a kind, gentle man who loved his family deeply. Vince worked at the Penticton Regional Hospital for many years, finding his ‘niche’ in Extended Care (Westview). He was an avid sports fan who loved baseball and hockey, especially the Canucks and Blue Jays. Vince played both baseball and hockey in his younger years and in retirement (1996), he enjoyed playing Old Timers Hockey. He also took up swimming and went on fishing trips, and lately you could find him at the mall having coffee with his buddies. Vince will always be remembered for his entertaining personality and his desire to help others—he touched so many people. Vince was cremated Sept. 29, 2014. A Memorial Service to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014 at 1 p.m. at Penticton United Church, 696 Main St., Penticton with Rev. Laura Turnbull officiating. All family and friends are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations to the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation or the Penticton United Church Mission & Service Fund would be appreciated.
