Gregg Robert McClelland, suddenly but peacefully, in the early morning of Saturday, April 29th, 2023, at London University Hospital, at age 78.
Devoted husband of Dorothy “Dotty” McClelland (née Fenton) of Kincardine.
Loving father to Kevin Gregg McClelland and his wife Tanya of Pickering and Ryan Dale McClelland and his spouse Amanda of Courtice.
Proud Grandfather of Kevin’s daughters: Kaley & Kiera McClelland.
Gregg worked as a Sales Director of Group Insurance at Crown Life for 37 years where he and Dotty met. He retired at age 55 and left his home in Toronto for his adopted home of Kincardine.
Tireless volunteer and past president for the Kincardine Hospital Foundation, past president of the PROBUS Club, faithful member of Kincardine United Church and Past Master of Northern Light Masonic Lodge. Gregg’s passions were golfing, telling jokes (and bad puns!) and cheering on his Blue Jays and Leafs (GO LEAFS GO!).
His extended family will miss him deeply, Glenn and Connie Fenton of Toronto and Dale and Linda Fenton of Collingwood and their families. Gregg considered Glenn and Dale his adoptive brothers.
The family wishes to thank the Kincardine Hospital and all of the medical professionals for the care received both now and over the years.
Visitation will be held at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home on Monday, August 14th, 2023 from 10 to 11 a.m., followed by the memorial service to honour Gregg's life at 11:30 a.m., with Pastor Ken Craig and Reverend Gord Dunbar co-officiating.
Interment Kincardine Cemetery.
Celebration of Life at the Ainsdale Golf Course to follow from 2 to 4 p.m.
Expressions of sympathy would be gratefully received by the Kincardine Community Health Care Foundation and the Kincardine United Church.
