Clarence McMillan

MCMILLAN, Clarence James Alexander

With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Clarence James Alexander McMillan, at the age of eighty-eight years, in Vernon, British Columbia on December 18, 2010. Mac, as he was fondly called, was born March 8, 1922 in Regina, Saskatchewan and was raised on a farm in Saskatchewan. At an early age he left home and became a mechanic in the Air Force. Eventually he moved west with his wife and two sons and raised their family in Taylor and Fort St.John, B.C. Mac had many talents being a welder, mechanic and truck driver which he loved the most. He will be greatly missed and remembered as an easy going, thoughtful man. He was predeceased by his son, Douglas McMillan. Mac will be forever loved and his memory held dear in the hearts of his dear wife, Margaret, to whom he was married for sixty-one years; son, Gregory (Charlene) and two grandchildren: Kara McMillan and Kyle (Krystal) McMillan. He is further survived by his sister, Jean Jaeger. A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, January 6th, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel of Personal Alternative Funeral Services, (4417 – 29 Street, Vernon, B.C.) with Pastor Rick Corak officiating. Interment will take place following the service in Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
