Eric McRae

McRAE, Eric

October 27, 1911 – August 6, 2004

Passed away in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital after a brief illness.

Eric and Virginia (pre-deceased 1998) were born and raised on Vancouver Island. After stints in Montreal and the Cariboo, they returned to Qualicum Beach in 1983 and settled at Eaglecrest.

Eric was active in both St. Mark’s Church, Qualicum Beach and St. Columba in Parksville.

He is survived by his son (Richard) and daughter-in-law (Lynne) as well as his six grandchildren and eight great grandchildren, all of whom will miss him very much, as will his many friends both near and far.

“Be aye the thing ye would be ca’d”
