In Memory

Harold McLean (Class Of 1968)

It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to Harold McLean. Surrounded by loved ones, Harold left us on April 23rd 2015 in Ste. Anne Hospital. A personable and vivacious man, he was known for his big heart and generosity. He was hard working and always put the needs of others ahead of his own, despite his own struggles. An endearing son to George and Jean McLean, Harold was born in Minnedosa MB on May 18th 1949, spending his childhood on the farm near Rapid City. Harold’s happiest days were spent surrounded by friends and family doing the things he loved most, camping, curling and playing ball. He took pride in his yard, loved his home, and cherished his community of St. Adolphe. He was a devoted husband to Irène (née Préfontaine), caring father to Chantelle (Dwayne), Kristian (Guylène) and Stéphanie, and a loving and adored grandfather to Ella, Eric, Amélie, Justin and Derrick. Harold is also survived by his parents George and Jean, siblings Craig (Sheila) and Janice (Barry), along with his in-laws Marc (Eva), Luc (Ida), Gil, Claire, Jean, Béatrice (Eugène), Léo (Jocelyne), Rachelle, Janine (Kevin) and Gisèle (Jean-Guy). He was predeceased by Monique, Victor and Éveline Préfontaine. Harold leaves behind a great number of nephews, nieces, friends and a special Goddaughter. A Celebration of Life will be held in his honour on Sunday, May 3rd 2015, at 2:00 pm, at Pioneer Hall in St. Adolphe. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or Ste. Anne Hospital. “Friends and family are the MOST important” – Harold McLean
