C. Duane MacPhail

C. Duane MacPhail

August 8, 1941 – February 6, 2015

It is with immeasurable sadness that the family of Duane MacPhail announces his passing from this earth to a place of wonder and joy with the Good Lord, and His many angels on the evening of February 6, 2015.

Duane’s greatest joy was his family: he believed he simply had the best. He was so proud of them all: His faithful and devoted wife and best friend of 50 years, Bonnie: son Shane (Dana) from Australia with grandsons Dylan (Monique) Keenan, granddaughters Charlotte and Teyah: daughter Shannon (Clayton Johnston) and their children Rory, Kiara and Shayce all from Salt Spring Island. Daughter Stacey (Sabrina) and grandsons Peyton and Crosby from Kelowna. Another ‘special daughter’, Rhonda from Australia was dear to him as well. Cousins Carol and Barb were more like special sisters.

Bonnie and family wish to thank first the initial responders here on the Island and the wonderful work of Dr.’s White and Morse, and then the exemplary care from all the staff at the RJH ICU staff. They were so efficient medically, but as important, very compassionate and helpful with Duane and the family.

We welcome friends to attend a brief and informal celebration of his life at the Brinkworthy Clubhouse on Friday, February 13 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Heart Foundation or the charity of your choice.
