Sterling McEachern

Sterling was born in Lindsay, Ontario, and graduated from Queen’s University as a mechanical engineer. He met Maureen at Queen’s; they married in 1960 and have four girls and three grandchildren.

Through him, we discovered the love of music, sports, reading and outdoor adventures, especially overnight canoe trips.

On Salt Spring, Sterling enjoyed square dancing, Trail and Nature walks, Tai Chi and golfing with the Fickle Fingers.

He showed us the beauty of silence. How to not take life too seriously. And what a truly good father, grandfather and husband looks like. Strong. Honest. Love through actions.

Sterling lives on always in our hearts.
