MacPHEE, Gary--

October 4, 1946 - February 4, 2018

We, the family, are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our father, Gary MacPhee, age 71, of Guelph, Ontario on February 4, 2018. Gary was predeceased by his beloved wife, Sheila (nee Currie). He is the treasured father of James (Toby), Laura (Rick) and Kristina, and the amazing Grandpa of Claire, Rowan, Graham and Bridget. He is also survived and loved by his brother Roger (Judi); sisters Jane, Judith and Eleanor (Scott); special sisters-in-law Kaye and Marilyn Currie, as well as his cherished nieces and nephews. Gary was also predeceased by his parents Jim and Dorothy (nee Doyle), late of Sydney, N.S., as well as brothers-in-law Sandy and Greg Currie and Robin Parke, and sister-in-law Babe Currie.

Gary was born and raised in Sydney, N.S., and began working for Air Canada in the late 1960’s. Together with Sheila, he moved to Toronto and then Guelph, where they built an incredible home that was alive with love and celebration. Throughout Gary’s career in aviation, he was integral in developing and implementing procedures to ensure the safety and smooth running of airport operations. With Sheila and his children, Gary travelled the world, exploring new cultures and customs, always respectful of and grateful to the people he met along the way.

Our Dad has instilled these values within us, and we are proud and honoured to have been raised by such an incredible man. We would like to thank everyone who has provided care for Dad over the past three months, especially Dr. Bailey and Kelly C. We are eternally grateful to the staff of Hospice Wellington for their incredible and compassionate care of Dad in his last week, and also for the compassion and comfort they gave to us, his family.

Friends are invited to meet with the family at the Gilbert MacIntyre & Son Funeral Home, Dublin Chapel, 252 Dublin St. N., Guelph, on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 from 7-9 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held in the funeral home chapel on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 11 a.m. Cremation to follow. Gary’s ashes will be interred beside those of his beloved Sheila. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Hospice Wellington would be appreciated by the family.
