Gregg Robert McClelland of Kincardine, died suddenly but peacefully, in the early morning of Saturday, April 29, 2023, at London’s University Hospital. He was 78. Devoted husband of Dorothy “Dotty” McClelland (née Fenton) of Kincardine. Loving father of Kevin Gregg McClelland and his wife, Tanya, of Pickering; and Ryan Dale McClelland and his spouse, Amanda, of Courtice. Proud grandfather of Kevin’s daughters, Kaley and Kiera McClelland. Gregg worked as a sales director of group insurance at Crown Life for 37 years, where he and Dotty met. He retired at age 55 and left his home in Toronto for his adopted home of Kincardine. A tireless volunteer, he was the past-president of the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation, past-president of the PROBUS Club, faithful member of Kincardine United Church, and Past-Master of Northern Light Masonic Lodge. Gregg’s passions were golfing, telling jokes (and bad puns!), and cheering on his Blue Jays and Maple Leafs (GO LEAFS, GO!). His extended family will miss him deeply: Glenn and Connie Fenton of Toronto and Dale and Linda Fenton of Collingwood, and their families. Gregg considered Glenn and Dale his adoptive brothers. The family thanks the Kincardine hospital staff and all of the medical professionals for the care received both now and over the years. Memorial donations to the Kincardine Community Health Care Foundation and the Kincardine United Church, would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy; arrangements entrusted to the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, Kincardine; Memorial service and celebration of life will be announced once details are finalized.
