MARVIN (SONNY) McQUARY
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving husband, father, grandfather and brother Marvin (Sonny) McQuary at age 72. Born in Saskatchewan, he came to BC with his parents as an infant. Marvin worked for BC Ferries Catering department for 35 years mostly out of Horseshoe Bay and Langdale, and this is where he met Bev. After retiring in 1995, he felt the need for a new challenge and so Marv & Bev moved to Nanaimo. They opened Esquires Coffee House at Longwood Station where many wonderful relationships and friendships were formed with their customers. By 2007 it became clear that it was time to retire for good, and do some travelling. He leaves his wife Bev of 44 years and their five children and seven grandchildren, a large extended family and friends. On July 18 at 1pm a graveside service will be held at the Chinese Cemetery on Townsite Road in Nanaimo to be followed by a Celebration of Life for family and friends at Deer Wood Park Estates on Biggs Road, Nanaimo. In lieu of flowers, a donation to BC Children’s Hospital would be greatly appreciated.
