February 27, 1939 – September 23, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mac Harrison with his wife and family by his side on September 23, 2021.
He is survived by the love of his wife Linda, sons Ken (Heather) and Al (Heather) and step daughter Sara. Surviving siblings are Keith (Maggie) and Diane (Wilf). Grandchildren: Jina (Gabe), Dyan (Twyla), Alyssa (Tyler) and Darrian. Sisters -in-laws; Bev (Paul) and Evelyn and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Predeceased by parents Bert and Thelma and siblings; Ivan (Mary), Lorraine (Jim), and Dorothy (Willie).
Mac retired as a bus driver from Winnipeg Transit after 30 years of service. He made many life- long friends in that time, participating in curling bonspiels and goose hunts.
In his younger years he spent his spare time golfing, curling, fishing and hunting. He also loved entertaining family and friends at home and at the lake, while enjoying great food and several beverages.
After retirement he continued golfing and fishing as often as he could. He also took up bread making, which was a family favorite.
He was always the life of the party and loved to entertain. He loved cracking jokes, dancing, making people laugh, playing cards, crib, marbles and horseshoes. He always knew how to make you laugh with his great sense of humour and spent endless time entertaining his grandchildren.
Once Linda joined him in retirement they enjoyed spending time together and socializing at Lee River and making numerous new friends. They travelled to Texas, Arizona and BC with friends and family. They were always in attendance at the local Legion for the weekly meat draw.
In his late 60’s his heart was captured by a furry friend named Puttie. He talked to her and always took her outside for a walk. With the loss of Puttie, he gained another furry friend named Kittie that brought smiles and happiness to his life.
Mac was a special person who made anyone feel like a friend and was loved by everyone he met. His presence in life will leave a large void for anyone who knew him. He will be truly missed by all. We love you!
Linda would like to thank her sister Bev for being by her side and special thanks to everyone who reached out with their kind words and support.
A celebration of Mac’s life will be held at the Dugald Community Centre 544 Holland Street Dugald, MB on Friday, October 1, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. Covid restrictions apply, masks and double vaccinations are required.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society 45 Hurst Way Wpg, MB, R3T 0R3.
