William McLean Obituary

William McLean of Summerland, BC, passed away on February 18, 2024, at the age of 99 years.

He was born in 1924, in Virden, MB into a close-knit family of 7. At the age of 17, he joined the RCAF and served as a wireless air gunner on a Lancaster Bomber. Post-war, William resumed his education, taking leave to work, including underground gold mines and surveys for a pulp and paper company in Ontario.

William was attracted to Northern Manitoba – The Pas, and to a dental assistant named Irene Williams. They married and raised 4 children. He became Resources Director in MB and served with the Legion, Air Cadets, School Board, and Sports Clubs. Irene was happiest amid grandchildren, tending to her flowers, spending time overlooking the lake and hosting family and visitors. Dad was a member of the Summerland Golf and Country Club from 1986 – 2019.

William is sadly predeceased by his wife, Irene, in 2008; son, Brad, in 1984; and daughter, Heather, in 1996.

He is survived by his warmly supportive sons, Ritch (Diane) of Summerland and Howard (Ana) of Sylvan Lake, AB; son-in-law, Allan Gee Sr. of Summerland; four grandchildren, and several great-grandchildren.

A Memorial Service was held on Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 1:00 p.m. at the Summerland Legion, Branch 22, 14205 Rosedale Avenue.
