Aubin Remi McGrath



With heavy hearts our family announces the passing of our loved one Aubin Remi McGrath on June 1st at the Canmore General Hospital at the age of 75. He was the son of Johnny McGraw and Suzanne Beaulieu from Bois-Hébert, NB.

Aubin was born on February 29th, 1948  and raised in New Brunswick. He was the second youngest of a family of 14 siblings (Ludivine, Gilberte, Jean-Paul, Gérard, Vitaline, Gisèle, Simonne, Honoré, Viateur, Élie, Eugène, Odette, Aubin, and Raymonde). He also had lots of brother and sister in laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and lots of friends. He moved to Canmore in 1998. He will be tremendously missed by his loving wife  Rose H. (Leloule) of 55 years and his cherished daughter Jackie.

Aubin was known for his heart of gold, his beautiful smile and curly hair. He was the most kind, compassionate, patient, gentle and generous man. He cared deeply about his family. Aubin was a Professional Tour Bus Driver for Canada Coach Lines for many years. He also worked at the Dirty Dog Car Wash, Bow Kor Excavating and Clean Sweep.

In his leisure time, Aubin enjoyed cooking on the barbeque, driving his Miata Roadster convertible, hanging out with the family cat Chrissie and going for dog walks with his wife, daughter and Princess Sissie the dog. He also enjoyed eating out at restaurants and going for coffee with his friends and family.

Thank you for the kind and caring staff at the Canmore General Hospital, Home Care and our family doctors J. Michalyshyn, M. Elkink, L. Lourens, C. Card and S. Grondin.

Please join us for a Funeral Mass on Saturday, June 17 at 11:00 a.m. at The Shrine Church of Our Lady of the Rockies (Catholic Church) 2 Silvertip Trail, Canmore, AB. 

If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Calgary Tom Baker Cancer Center.
