MCRAE, Winston Norman Keith 
It is with great sadness that the family of Winston announce his passing on June 15, 2020, at the age of 78yrs old.

Winston was the son of John McRae & Grace Copeland of Lost River, Quebec and was 1 of 14 children.

He married Waverly, the love of his life, in 1967.  Winston is survived by his son’s Cameron (Kim), Bobby (Heather) & daughter Treena (Les).  

Cherished by his Grandchildren Kristen, Jordan, Emily, Tye, Sydney, Summer, Liam, Farran & four Great Grandchildren.

Left to mourn his passing are his sisters Heather (Bob) & Margaret (Richard), predeceased by his brothers & sisters Wyman (Edith), Lawrence (Norma), Anthony (Kitty), Angus (Opal), Harold (Faye), Mary (Charles), Eleanor (Lambert), Iva (Bob) & Brian (Alice).   He will be greatly missed by his sister-in laws, brother-in laws, cousins, nieces & nephews.  

Winston was a hard worker, kind, caring & gentle person who enjoyed helping friends & family. He was loved by those that have had the pleasure to have met him.  He enjoyed going for drives on his ATV through the countryside, back roads, maybe stopping off to see a friend for visit & taking the grandchildren out.  He had a true love for the outdoors & never took a day for granted to be out enjoying it.

He was definitely a people person, who gave everything he had to let people know they meant a lot to him.  He always had a beautiful smile when he saw you & gave the most incredible hugs that said he really cared & loved you.  Winston will be forever in our hearts and memory.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Desforges Funeral Home, 188 rue Principale, Grenville, QC (819) 242-2113.
