Mac (Malcolm Norman) Brodie Nov. 15, 1926 - Jan. 4, 2018 Husband, father, friend, mentor, engineer, businessman; Mac was all of these. He passed away peacefully at his home in Vancouver. Pre-deceased by his sweetie Nancy, he is survived by children John (Cath), Pat, Don (Darlene), and Alister, and 7 grand-children Karen, Malcolm, Anthony, Stefan, Chris, Jessica and Connor, and many relatives. Mac was married for 61 years and strongly felt the loss of his wife to Alzheimer's in Sept. 2016. His work took him to numerous countries around the world. At the apex of his successful consulting career he was highly sought after all over the world for his expertise in specialized mining machinery. He managed a growing family business on the side of his desk. When not working, he enjoyed many years as a successful soccer coach. However, Mac's number one place to be was Hopkins Landing, where he had enjoyed recreation since a young child. His integrity, honesty and gentlemanly manner was widely acknowledged as being of the finest way to lead one's life. He will be sorely missed. A service is planned for Feb. 24, 2018 at Shaughnessy Heights United Church. Details TBA.
