1950 - 2017
With extremely heavy hearts we announce the passing of Richard McLean, age 67, on October 18, 2017. Richard was born October 12, 1950, in Edinburgh, Scotland to John and Jesse McLean. The family moved to Canada when Richard was young, eventually settling in Kamloops, BC. Richard worked for over 30 years with Barton Black and Robertson Insurance/Interior Savings Insurance Services where he met his wife Carol and together they raised 2 children. He would go on to retire and enjoy his true passions of garage sales and gardening. It was a sure bet that on any given day you could find Richard either out in his garden wearing over sized gum boots, a hat and a smile or driving his 1966 “Robins Egg Blue” GMC truck. Richard had a wonderful sense of humour, loved watching his favorite sports teams, win or lose, he was a loyal fan. Some of his favorite times were when he packed up his family and went out to Knouff Lake for a weekend of fun.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife Carol; along with their children; Michael McLean, and Melissa (Spencer) Fauteux; his 2 adored grandchildren, Alexa and Chase Fauteux; nephews Kenneth Andrew McLean and Brain McLean as well as many other loving relatives.
Richard was predeceased by his parents John and Jessie McLean; and his brother , John and Kenneth.
We welcome family and friends to take an afternoon to share and remember the life of Richard McLean at his and Carol’s Westsyde home from 1:30pm until 3:30pm and Saturday, October 28th, 2017.
