November 18, 1939 – July 3, 2012

On Tuesday, July 3, 2012 Andrew passed away peacefully at the Carewest Sarcee Hospice with his devoted wife and family by his side.

Andrew was born in Glasgow Scotland and was the oldest of four children to parents Robert and Winnie Macfarlane. He moved from Glasgow to Southampton England where he spent many years working with Weir Pump this enabled him to travel the world. Andrew immigrated to Canada in 1980 and made his home in Calgary, Alberta with his wife Elaine and family.

Andrew was predeceased by his parents Winnie and Robert Macfarlane of Glasgow, Scotland.

During his life he made many lasting professional and personal relationships and we want to thank everyone for their thoughts and wishes over the past few years and true to his wishes, no services will be made, instead we will continue to celebrate his life rather than mourn his passing. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. The family would also like to thank the wonderful staff at the Carewest Sarcee Hospice for their compassion and care and in lieu of flowers donations can be made to a charity of your choice or to the Carewest Sarcee Hospice.

In living memory of Andy Macfarlane, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

    Although Andy, Elaine and I lost track of each other over the years, Andy and I worked together when he first came to Calgary. I have always had fond memories of the time we spent together both at work and outside of work. Elaine, please know that my thoughts are with you and the family. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.

    Best Regards
    Dawn
