Obituary for John A. McLay
September 9, 1953 – January 15, 2020
It is with deep sadness that the McLay family announces the passing of John Allan McLay Jr. at the age of 66. He was the beloved son of Ivy McLay and the late John McLay, and brother of Bonnie McLay and Brenda McLay. He was the cherished father of Krystal McLay (Jeffry Bennett) and Miranda McLay, and uncle of Claudia Thompson and Tracy Thompson. John was a proud member of the Ivanhoe Masonic Lodge and as an Al Shamal Shriner. To inspire and inform others, John wrote “Cancer – Never Surrender, It’s Personal” – an anecdotal account of his years of journeying with cancer and his success using integrated therapies that combined both traditional with naturopathic treatments. Special gratitude to all who were involved in John’s wellness over the years.
Visitation will take place on Friday January 31st at Foster and McGarvey Funeral Home, located at 10011 – 114th Street NW, Edmonton from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. The service will follow at 2:00 pm and will be streamed online. Please contact the funeral home for further information. Donations, in memory of John, can be made to the Cross Cancer Institute, Edmonton.
John had been a very active IPE Member of the Edmonton Branch since 1980 (40 years) and will be missed by all those he has touched.
