Eugene Alexander (Sandy) MacDonald

In loving memory of Eugene Alexander (Sandy) MacDonald, 64, a lifelong and proud resident of Sudbury, who died on October 11, 2012 at Health Sciences North, of cancer which he faced with a calm spirit and brave heart. Sandy leaves behind in sorrow his wife Susan (nee Beauchamp), their children Katherine (Karl), Joe (Melanie) and Dave (Amanda), his brother Joe of Axe Lake and sister Ann of New Zealand. He will be truly missed by his sisters and brothers–in-law, and relatives in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and England, and by his dear friends who journeyed through life with him.
