Born Sept. 20, 1953, he set himself free from his body’s battle with cancer on Jan. 8, 2012. He was a leader in courage, humour, directness and love during his time with us. Angus faced his imminent departure with humour, wisdom and a good dose of mischief, right to the end! He was taken from life too soon for those of us left behind, with lots of music still in him.
He’ll be so missed by his loving wife Michelle, son Allan, siblings Shari (Brock), Madelaine, and Ian (Krista), many extended family members, and a wealth of treasured friends. Angus’ sense of adventure and creativity was in full force as always, leaving an amazing wake of laughter. Whether it was designing, building, tinkering, racing bikes, cars or bathtubs and sharing great music, food and conversation with friends, the only way to do life was fully participating in each moment, usually at full throttle.
Angus often said that if you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space! He was passionate about helping others with their “Pursuit of Excellence.” As a valued leader, assisting with the delivery of programs in the Yukon, Vancouver and on Vancouver Island, he will be profoundly missed by his colleagues and life time friends.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2012 from 1 pm – 4 pm at the Parksville Community & Conference Centre, 132 E. Jensen.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Pursuit of Excellence Training Society or the charity of your choice are appreciated.
