April 30, 1951 – January 4, 2013
Martin McInneny passed away peacefully, but, far too soon, surrounded by family at the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital after a massive stroke.
Martin was born in Glasgow, Scotland to John and Margaret McInneny and immigrated to Canada with Lesley in 1976 where he lived in Prince George, BC until 1989 when he and his family moved to Nanaimo, BC. Martin will be missed dearly by his loving wife of 39 years, Lesley, son David (Debbie), daughter Suzanne (Dave), grandchildren Gracie, Alex and baby-to-be in February. Also missing him very much are his sister Moira (Norman) and brother John (Monica), all his nieces and nephews and numerous other family and friends.
Martin loved the game of soccer and was active in the soccer communities of Prince George and Nanaimo, playing, and coaching various teams over the years. Martin worked as an aircraft mechanical engineer at Rolls Royce in Scotland before moving to Canada and beginning his career as a machinist. Martin loved his family dearly and enjoyed every minute of being a Granddad to Gracie and Alex.
A memorial service will be held in Martin’s honour on Saturday January 12, 2013, 1:00pm at Sands Funeral Chapel, 1 Newcastle Avenue, Nanaimo, BC. Reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
