Sonny passed away peacefully on Dec 18, 2012 at Kootenay Lake Hospital surrounded by his loving family.
He was born and raised in Crawford Bay to Roy and Dorothy McGregor, one of the pioneer families in the area. His many occupations included logging, mining, farming and small businesses which included the Crawford Bay store, the Riondel store and the Kokanee Springs club house. He enjoyed his retirement years on the McGregor farm cutting wood to keep the home fires burning and going south in the winter.
Sonny was a loving husband, a caring father and a loyal and trustworthy friend. He liked nothing better than having friends over and debating the issues of the day. He touched the heart of everyone he met and he will be greatly missed.
He his survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Joanne, three children, Wayne (Connie), Keith (Wendy), Heather (Rob) and six grandchildren, Lexi, Lori, Mike, Desiree, Clinton and Lavonne, and four great grandchildren. He is also survived by one sister Winnie Charlton of Vanvouver and several nieces and nephews.
Cremation has taken place and at Sonny’s request there will be no service. As an expression of sympathy, family and friends may make a donation to the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation or their charity of choice.
The family would like to thank Dr Noiles, Dr Grant and the third floor nursing staff at the Kootenay Lake Hospital for the wonderful care he received during his stay there.
