Obituary Overview

In Loving Memory

McCallum, Duncan

We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Duncan on Saturday January 6th, 2018 at Brampton Civic Hospital,
one day shy of his 72nd birthday.  Duncan was the beloved husband of Donna for 45 years.  Loving father to Kirsty and Robert, and proud grandpa to Abbey.  Duncan was born in Renton Scotland to Sadie and Peter McCallum (deceased).  Brother to Eleanor (Andy), and predeceased by his sister Betty (Alan).  Duncan retired after 31 years from Ford Motor Company of Canada.  Duncan was a retired sergeant and piper with the Lorne Scots Pipes & Drums (Peel, Dufferin & Halton Regiment) and received the Canadian Forces of Decoration (CD) for 18 years of service to Canada, 1976-1994. 

Duncan was a member of the Royal Legion Branch 15, and the Flower City Lodge.  We will miss Duncan’s sense of humour, his corny jokes, his smile that could light up a room, and his beautiful Scottish tenor singing voice.  He had a huge heart, loved to laugh and lived life to the fullest. 

The family would like to thank the wonderful and compassionate ICU nurses who took care of Duncan, along with the physicians at Brampton Civic Hospital.  

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke foundation, St. Paul’s United Church or a charity of your choice.

To Donna and all Duncan's family. It is with great sadness that we heard of Duncan's passing at such a young age. It is a blessing though that he did get to enjoy 14 + years of retirement. I worked with Duncan for many years at Ford, Bramalea and it was such an honor and a pleasure to be in his company at any time. We haven't seen him for a while now but he left a lasting memory that will never ever leave us. We are sorry we were unable to attend at his service, however we were certainly there in thought and prayer. Take care, share the love and be well. Bev. and Marion Genoe.
