McGinnity, Hugh

It’s comes with great sadness that we announce the passing of a beloved husband, proud father and blessed grandfather.
He is proudly survived by his loving wife Angela McGinnity, his children Elaine, Steven, Kevin and Ryan and by his grand children Lucas, Stephanie, Isabelle, Andrew, Sebastian, Michael, Travis, Brier and Paige. He was born in Glasgow Scotland, and met his first and only true-love Angela at the age of 14 and they were inseparable even since. They moved to Canada in 1967 for a fresh start and to build their life together In the GTA. Hugh was a driver for the TTC when he first moved to Canada, and eventually went on to work for Mississauga Transit and retired with them. Hugh was also an enormous football supporter, his team was the only team that mattered, “The Bhoys” Glasgow Celtic. Hugh could always find a familiar face wherever he went, he was well known in the communities he lived, highly respected and very well liked everywhere he went.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
And you’ll never walk alone,
You’ll never walk alone
In lieu of flowers please donate to a charity of your choice in memory of Hugh.

    Dad, words cannot describe the sadness we all feel with you no longer with us. You have been taken from us far to soon and we all miss you tremendously. It was like yesterday that we were talking and laughing about general, everyday things like we would every time I saw you. From your silly magic tricks to your funny pranks you’d pull on all of us, you are already dearly missed. I want you to know that Mom will be looked after in every way possible now that your gone, your children will help take over that role as you would have wanted.

    We will see you down the road, save me a seat next to you, we’ll have a cup of coffee and watch the next celtic game!

    With love always, your son Ryan ❤️
