On January 10, 2010, John McClean of Coldstream BC, died peacefully at the age of 85 years.
After serving in the Canadian Air Force in WWII, John’s business career was spent in Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton. His most rewarding venture was his beloved Beta Plastics Ltd. After retiring, John and Wendy moved to the Okanagan where they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary enjoying many summers in the sun and winters in Hawaii and down South. Wendy passed away in 2001 and John’s heart and soul went with her. John was fortunate to remain in the comfort of his home until recently.
He will be sadly missed by his children Heather Hammond (Greg), Peter McClean (Shannon) and Beth Comartin (Bob). Grandfather/Papa will be missed by his grandchildren Allan (Elizabeth) and TJ Hammond, Jonathan, Morven and Jillian McClean, Eva Kelemen (Kelsey), Johanna and Emily Comartin. Grandfather/Papa is also survived by his three great grandchildren Austin Joseph and Sierra Wendy Kelemen and John William Hammond.
A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.
