CLINTON JOHN MACPHAILPosted: May 15th, 2017
October 10, 1952, Medicine Hat – May 9, 2017, Vancouver
Clint’s family is deeply saddened to announce his sudden death. He is mourned by his mother, Rose, Medicine Hat; siblings Sandy (Peter Bull), Edmonton; Jim (Shelly), Medicine Hat; Bob (Wendy), Lethbridge; Bruce (Amal) Calgary; Stu, Red Deer; & Jackie (Jeremy Reynolds), Calgary. He also leaves nieces & nephews: Michael (Shirley Walker); Jill (Justin Boksteyn), Medicine Hat; Stephen, Calgary; Jamie, Lethbridge; Emilie & Mary; Calgary. He was predeceased by his father James Clinton “Clint” in 1980.
His Alberta family greatly appreciates the unwavering & loving support during this past year of his “Vancouver family” including: Maitreyi Chakravarti; Sam, Lida, & Mahyar Mohammadi; Eileen Mate; and Ladan Mohammadi & Amir Abdollahzadeh-Zarre & their cherished sons Ali & Daniel.
Clint loved learning as demonstrated by his attaining degrees at the Uof A in Arts, Science, and Business. Following 16 years in the financial industry in Edmonton and Vancouver, he spent 15 years in Business Coaching & the communications industry. His passion for teaching was evidenced by the mentoring of many young people in the banking industry and the tutoring of English to new Canadians. Many would agree that his greatest gift was his generosity of spirit.
His family would also like to acknowledge the exceptional compassion of Dr Maryse Power and the nursing staff at the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit of VGH for Clint’s care.
Following a memorial in Vancouver (date TBD) his ashes will be interred in a private family ceremony in Medicine Hat. Condolences may be expressed to the family via firstname.lastname@example.org. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor his memory may make donations to support Leukemia Research at VGH.
