McClary, George – Passed away, peacefully at home, surrounded by the love and comfort of his family on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at the age of 85. Beloved husband of Lois (nee Cudmore) for 62 years. Cherished father of Susanne DaSilva (late Joseph), Stephen McClary, Sandra McClary (Joseph Posteraro) and stepfather of Randy Campbell. Proud and loving grandfather of Christopher DaSilva (Lisa), Julia DaSilva, Joseph DaSilva, Jennifer DaSilva (David Bowman), Stephen Dean and Mandi McClary (Joel Hopkins). He will be sadly missed by many great-grandchildren. Dear brother of Lena DiLellio (late John), Margaret McClary and Carol Hodgkins (late Lorne). Also survived by several nieces and nephews.
George was a Master Plumber by trade, but music was his true passion. He was a talented guitarist and vocalist, entertaining at venues throughout Southern Ontario with his band “Seventh Son”. Proud of his Irish Heritage, he was outgoing and quick witted, always ready with a joke to tell. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather whose infectious smile and caring nature have touched the lives of so many.
The family will receive friends at the H.L. Cudney Funeral Home, 241 West Main Street, Welland on Thursday, February 22nd from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. A service to celebrate George’s life will be held in the Cudney Chapel on Friday, February 23rd at 11 a.m. followed by burial at Mount Osborne Cemetery in Beamsville.
In Lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial donations may be made to a charity of one’s choices. Online condolences available at www.cudneyfuneralhome.com
