Angus P. MacGillivray passed away peacefully at the Royal Jubilee Hospital on May 02, 2022. He passed away at the age of 93.

He was born in Glasgow, Scotland and after serving in the British army in Egypt, he decided to settle down and got married to Margaret nee McMullen (Deceased 2008), and had three children Heather, Angus and Ken.

In 1957 he immigrated to Canada with a nursing degree and got a job in the Vancouver General Hospital, and then sent for his family. In 1967, he took a position at the Royal Jubilee Hospital where he and his colleagues opened up the Renal unit and saved people’s lives.

Later in life he changed to a career in occupation Health and Safety and worked at Crown Paper.

He is survived by his daughter Heather, and his two sons Angus and Ken. He is also survived by his cousins and their families, and his many nieces and nephews in Scotland and England.

His passions were art, gardening, writing and always loved a good time.

There will be no service at this time.

    Angus was a gentleman, a scholar and above all, a true friend. I loved spending time with him because he was always kind, encouraging and supportive.
    Angus was also a Great-grandfather to Tanner and Bailey; he seemed to relish the boys boundless energy, but was also just as prepared to read a story, or to share his artistic talents.
    I will never forget how strong Angus was, he seemed to have super human strength and endurance. I recall one 12 hour fishing trip where Angus kept pace with me, never stopping or slowing even though we walked through the bush and waded the river the entire day. When I think of that day, I still laugh and smile even though it was 20 years ago.
    God bless you my friend,

    So sorry to hear this, dear Heather. My heart goes out to you and Angus and Ken at this sad time. I did so enjoy chatting with your father whenever he dropped in – a lovely man with a big heart and a warm smile. I know you’ll miss him, but will also have so many good memories to sustain you. Love to you all.

    There’s the happy face I remember! I used to do the nursing timekeeping at RJH in the early ’70s and Angus and I had many a friendly chat. At that time, my office was in the Administrative Annex (old nurses’ residence) and Angus would bring his pay sheets to me. His lovely accent and story telling will be etched in my memory forever. My heartfelt condolences to his family on his passing. He was a very special, intelligent man and a joy to be around.

  • Gillian Edwards
