In Memory of Rob McDonald

Posted by & filed under SCL.

It is with sadness that I share the news of the death of Rob McDonald on September 19, 2017. Rob and his family had a long history as residents of our community. Rob lived in the Strathcona community for most of his adult life and was passionate about many of our community issues. He was a member of the Strathcona Community League Board from 2007 until 2012, first as Chair of Civics and Planning, then assuming a Co-Presidents role before becoming the President.
Although Rob moved away from the community he continued to be involved as president of the board for Ice on Whyte. He told me how this involvement enabled him to stay connected to the community that he loved. Our sincere condolences to Rob’s children Jackson, David and Olivia as well as to Lydia Neufeld, mother of his three children.
Rob will certainly be missed by our community.
A memorial will be held October 21, at the Strathcona Baptist Church.
