Warren Malcolm McLean


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father Lloyd Donald McLean on June 15, 2014 in his 87th year. Born on January 4, 1927 in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Don graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the University of Toronto in 1950 and then from the University of Guelph in 1954 with a degree in Horticulture. He co-founded McLean-Peister Ltd. (landscape contractors in Kitchener Ontario) and was very proud of his many major business contracts including the landscaping of Expo 67, Stratford, American Motors Plant in Brantford, as well as many Universities in Ontario. In 1963 he was elected president of the Ontario Landscape Contractors Association. An avid outdoor enthusiast Don moved to the Okanagan in 1988 and thoroughly enjoyed hiking, downhill skiing at Silverstar, bird watching and gardening.

Don was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Beatrice (Bricknell) as well as his sister Anna Stroh and Bette Hoffman all of Kitchener. He is survived and lovingly remembered by his sister Gladys Buck of Kitchener and daughters Heather Morrison of Peachland, BC, Debbie Dahms of Steveston, BC, and his son Scott McLean (Loni) of Peachland, BC as well as his grandson Matthew McLean and granddaughter Samantha McLean. A Service for friends and family will be held at First Memorial Funeral Home, 1211 Sutherland Avenue on June 24, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Shriners of BC and Yukon. Special Thanks to the wonderful staff of Lakeview Lodge in West Kelowna. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com. and searching his name under stories.
