Eamon Lin MacQueen

Apr. 18, 1980 – Jan. 13, 2016

With profound grief, we announce the death of Eamon Lin MacQueen, our beautiful son, brother, (great) grandson, nephew, cousin, kin, friend, and spiritual warrior. Eamon, aged 35, died of unknown causes in Victoria, BC, on January 13, 2016 while in the stabilization unit of the Eric Martin Pavilion. 

Eamon was born in Kelowna BC on April 18, 1980 to Carol (Roy Stewart) and Lindsay MacQueen. He leaves behind stepmom Stefanie Denz and siblings, Aulden, Frieda and Ella MacQueen-Denz, Leah and Carl Westlind, and grandparents Nick and Eileen Radelfinger, and Peter and Millie MacQueen.

Eamon was embraced by our entire diverse community. He left us far far too soon. Eamon was a formidable chef (clear the kitchen), reader, artist, media arts whiz, origami master, mathematician, chess player, conversationalist and staunch defender of free and creative thinking. He loved a good joke. Even a bad joke. Eamon risked, challenged, and lived a hard life as an adult. He loved his childhood. He loved his community and family. He loved to think and ponder chaos theory and fractals. There was never a kinder heart nor more loyal person. His spirit lives on within us all. 

Eamon’s life celebration will be at the Beaver Point Hall 2-4 pm, Saturday January 23, 2016 on Salt Spring Island, BC.

There will be music, food aplenty, and opportunities to connect and swap stories. All are welcome. Bring a dish to share. If you have any memories you would like to share of our dear Eamon there will be an open mic. We thank everyone for the generous support we have received. Donations can be made to the food bank or community services in his memory.
