Ronald David (Calvin) McLAY

McLAY, Ronald David (Calvin)

1947 – 2015

Calvin, as he was known by his family and friends, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 23, 2015 after a short but difficult battle with cancer. Calvin was born in Kimberley, BC on May 1, 1947 to Ian David Glencorse and Joyce McLay (nee Muir).

Calvin is survived by his sons; Michael and his daughter, Brooklyn; and David (Stacey) and their children Brianna and Caleb. He also leaves his brothers, Terry (Louise) McLay and Don McLay as well as numerous other relatives and friends.

Calvin was predeceased by his parents and his dearly loved son, Justin William Laurence McLay.

Calvin was an extraordinary, kind man who would help anyone he could without hesitation. He was a hard, dedicated worker and was employed at the Kimberley Golf Course for many years. When Calvin wasn’t working or golfing, you could find him sharing stories and laughs with his old buddies at the Sully Pub.

He will be missed by his family and many friends for his wit, friendly humour and sincere smile.

At Calvin’s request there will be no funeral service at this time. A Celebration of Life for Calvin will be held at a later date. In Calvin’s memory, donations may be made to the Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank or the Canadian Cancer Society.
