MCEWEN, John Anthony Edward (Tony)
John Anthony Edward McEwen, known as TONY
April 12, 1941 to September 07, 2020
A few years back, as a Hospice exercise, we both wrote our obituaries. Ever the quintessential lawyer, Tony could not leave the cause of death blank.
Having survived the battle of the bulge; the battle of wounded knee; his left foot; he finally succumbed to the certainty of life.
Tony was the love of my life, joy of my heart, centre of my Universe. My sorrow will be shared by our children, Suzy, Sarah and Ian; favourite son-in-law Wes; favourite daughter-in-law Anna; grandchildren Alis, Rory, Jonah and Piper; as well as our family and many friends, all of whom I thank for their love and support, particularly through the journey of the last five years.
Special thanks to Dr. Woodley for everything; Douglas Smith for Friday tea and cookies and latterly, for Wednesday walks, MMN Boyz, Tim and Grace for always being there, and Bootz, without whom we could not have done it.
Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease. Should you wish to make a donation in Tony’s memory, please consider: Hope for Wildlife, which provided endless hours of enjoyment; the Greenwoods Foundation for the Braehaven day program; Being Patient, a weekly Alzheimer’s newsletter.
