With grateful hearts for an incredible man, the family of W. George Clinton MacCallum, 87, of Moncton and formerly Steeves Mountain share that he is now with his Heavenly Father, passing on June 21, 2023 at The Moncton Hospital. He was the youngest child of the late Charles and Luretta (Harrop) MacCallum and was the last surviving member of his immediate family.
He is survived by his wife Eileen (Steeves), just prior to their 65th anniversary, his children Karen (Charles) Hopkins, Gail (Herb) Young, Ardith (Mike) Legacy, and Dwight (Leanne) MacCallum. He was Bampie to 14 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren with two more on the way. He was predeceased by his son Brent in 1988, grandson Connor in 1994, and 10 siblings Maryellen, Lois, Alexander, Archibald, Esther, Malcolm, Lucy, Joel, Neil and Allan.
After pursuing various fields of employment, he graduated from NBCC with a welding certificate in 1966 and worked at Apex Machine Shop for more than 30 years until his retirement. He worked very hard supporting his family, teaching himself plumbing, electrical, carpentry and vehicle repair. In later years, he loved puttering around in the basement of their Steeves Mountain home and memorializing the date on everything.
He was a lifelong member of the Wesleyan Church, and served in various capacities and attended the seniors group there.
The family would like to express a special thanks to the staff at the Moncton Hospital and especially the wonderful care provided by Dr. Brian Davidson.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Salisbury Funeral Home, 506-372-4800. A celebration of his life will be held at The Moncton Wesleyan Church Atrium on Tuesday, June 27th at 2:00pm. A private family interment was held at the new Elgin Cemetery beside his son Brent.
Donations in his memory can be made to Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation, or to a charity of donor’s choice. Online condolences and donations may be made at www.keirsteads.ca
