MacDONALD, Richard " MAC"
(September 3, 1947-December 16, 2007)
Richard MacDONALD (MAC) passed away suddenly on December 16, 2007 at his home. He created so many memories and he will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He would never want us to mourn his life (or write a cheesy obituary about it), for he had a great time! There will be no service by request and that is why Sherry, Emily and Dan are throwing a party in his honour to celebrate his life. We want to invite all who knew and loved my dad to come to: Sylvia's Restaurant (The Sylvia Hotel) 1154 Gilford St. (on English Bay) Vancouver, British Columbia Date: January 12, 2008 Time: 5:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Let's listen to some good music, drink beer and share some funny stories about Richard. My dad was never a big fan of flowers; he killed all the ones my mom ever tried to grow. So in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charitable organization that my dad fully supported and where my mom volunteers: WISH (Women's Information Safe Haven) Website: www.wish-vancouver.net We love you Daddy!
