MCAFEE, Michael John (Mac)

In HIGH TIDE or in LOW TIDE I’ll be by YOUR SIDE MCAFEE, Michael John (Mac) – We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Michael in his 65th year. Peacefully in the arms of his loving wife of 38 years, Karen. Mac’s ship set sail on September 29th, 2016. Mac joined the Royal Canadian Navy at 17 and retired in 1991 as Petty Officer, First Class. Through his retirement Mac was chief bar steward at the Brant Artillery Gunners Club and fully retired as part of the kitchen staff at The Brantford Club in 2011. He was best known for his sharp wit, his stories and most definitely his sense of humour that will live on in the many lives he touched. A spirit larger than life, Mac will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved him. Mac is predeceased by his parents, Malcolm and Barbara McAfee, brother James “Jimmy” McAfee, sister Valerie Layne and mother in-law- Frances Dishart. Forever missed by wife Karen, and his loving children Sean (Lindsay), Sara (Cory), his 3 grandchildren Gavin, Karley and Gibson and his loyal 4 legged companion Maddie. Mac is also survived by his 2 sisters Kerri, Jayne, 2 brothers Timmy, David, father-in-law Jack Dishart, brother-in-law Kim and sister-in-law Linda as well as many nieces and nephews. Thank you to the staff of BGH, CCAC and nurses and PSW’s of Bayshore. The family will receive friends at the Brant Navy Club 54 Wadsworth St on October 8th at 2:00 pm. Short service to be followed by a Celebration of Life. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Stedman Community Hospice or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

    Our deepest sympathy to Karen and family, and were saddened to read that Mac’s had crossed the bar. We had the cleaning contract at the Gunners Club from1992-2004 and got to interact with two very nice gentlemen of Gord Fluker and Mac. Jim and I were both in the Navy at the same time as Mac and knew a few of the same people and exchanged “war” stories. We’ll muster together one day.
