Sgt John William Bryden Sam McGhee (Ret’d)
We regret to announce the death of Sergeant John William Bryden "Sam" McGhee (Ret’d) at the North Bay Regional Health Center on 21 November 2012.
Sam was a 23-year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, serving first as an Air Boson in the Royal Canadian Navy and then later as a Firefighter in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He then worked in the Transit Department of the City of North Bay and then with Public Works. Sam was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #23, the Nipissing Masonic Lodge #420, the Rorab Shrine Club and was the host every Wednesday and Friday of the Gordon Drive Shedites commonly referred to as Branch 23 and a Half.
Two Memorial Services will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #23 on Friday, 30 November and all are welcome. The Masonic Service will be at 1:00 PM followed by the Legion Service at 1:30 PM. Fellowship and refreshments to follow. A gathering will occur later on Friday at the Legion for all Sam's friends to enjoy one last Meat Draw and remember his Life in a way in which Sam would have appreciated. If desired, donations to War Amps of Canada would be appreciated.
