October 23, 1926 – Arklow Co. Wicklow, Ireland
January 4, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta
He was a nice man. He was an Irishman who embraced Canada as his home since 1954. He loved his family, downhill skiing and his farm. He will be missed by all as he had an indomitable spirit, a wry sense of humor and was a courageous linguist. Aidan had a clear sense of reality and a willingness to communicate his take on all things. In his career, he ran a full pediatric practice with a focus on advocating preventative allergy treatment in Calgary.
He is survived by his loving wife Maryann, their five children, Sandy and her husband Mark Thygesen of Edmonton, Carol and her husband Michael Mannas of Calgary, Jim and his wife Jill Kavanagh of Tampa, FL, Katherine and her husband Mark Lesack of Vancouver, Joanne and her husband Dave Dial of Calgary, many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; sisters Mary Kennedy and Susan Wain of Ireland.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Catholic Church (1307 – 14 Street S.W., Calgary, AB) on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire donations may be made directly to the charity of your choice.
