Angus McKay Jr. of Kincardine, died peacefully, with family by his side, Jan. 27, 2022, at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Chesley, in his 90th year. Beloved husband of Audrey (nee White). Cherished and loved father of Sandra Smith, Lori Reid and the late John McKay (2021), and beloved little girl Joanie (1960). Proud grandpa of Josie Venn-Hershey (Tyler), Jeanna Crawford (Sean), Alexina Aikens (Brian), Chad Smith (Rayleen), William (Jacqui) Hazen, Thomas Hazen, and Michael Hazen; as well as 15 great-grandchildren. Angus is survived by his sister, Mildred Bonnett (the late Les); in-laws, Grace MacPherson (the late Stuart), Bernice Zuber (the late Jim), Elsie Jenkins (Earl), Sheila Rintoul (Paul), and Marlene White (the late Gordon). Predeceased by family members, Mary Roppel (Wes), Christena Roppel (Art), Glady’s Emmerton (Wib), Bernice Burt (Bill) and Cliff McKay (Marj). Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by his many friends and neighbours. Angus was known to most as Junior and with his beloved wife of 67 years, they farmed on the same farm where Junior was born, until 2001. He and Audrey were a team and at one time, they both drove school bus. Those who were fortunate enough to be on Junior’s route still comment on what a great bus driver he was. Angus was a social man, who enjoyed the company of others. He was very much loved, and his absence will be felt by his entire family.
