October 29, 1945 - March 22, 2024

In Loving Memory

David Grant McKay

On March 22, 2024, Grant passed away peacefully. Left to cherish his memory are his wife Sandra, his daughter Kelly and her husband Ian and grandson Evan, his brother Bruce, sisters, Heather and her husband Ian, Louise, nephews David and his wife Leah, Greg, Gavin and his wife Melissa, niece Kay and numerous extended friends and family.

He was predeceased by his son Jason.

Grant worked in the oil industry, mostly in Calgary and mostly in sales. He was great at his job and loved it.

His biggest passion was building and restoring airplanes so he could fly them. He and his dear friend Bob Petryk built the first Christen Eagle in Canada and competed in many competitions and Grant has the trophies to prove it!

Our family could not have gotten through this process without all the care that was shown to Grant over the past several months. To the care aids, nurses, doctors and the many earth angels:

You rock and thank you from the bottom of our hearts

A celebration of Grant’s life will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2024 at 3pm at the Kingfisher Community Society, 3337 Enderby Mabel Lake Rd, Enderby, BC V0E 1V5

    Hello Sandra
    I am so very sad for you and so sorry that you have lost your beloved Grant. I remember Grant as a kind man with a quick wit. I truly enjoyed the times I met him and was able to chat with him.
    You two made many wonderful memories together. Hold your memories close.
    Hugs to you and all of your family and friends that knew and loved Grant.

    My sincere condolences Sandra on the loss of Grant

  4. Tom Lockhart says:

    Grant was one of the guys who started the Aerobatic Club of Alberta, some 40 years ago, and he served as its first president during its formative years. The club is still going strong today, and this speaks to the strong start it got under Grant’s leadership.

    Thank you Grant.
