May 18, 1937 – September 30, 2012
Hugh MacPherson, beloved husband of Gwen, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the age of 75 years.
Hugh was a man of many talents and passions. As a professional musician he played trombone in the Boston, MA, and Calgary areas. He stood proud as a member of The Lord Strathcona Band (R.C.A.C.) and as the D.O.M. of The King’s Own Calgary Regimental Band (R.C.A.C.). Hugh taught trombone and composition at Mount Royal College and was a “guest” teacher for the C.C.S.D. He loved time spent at “the farm” in Dalemead, AB and with the “puppies”. Besides his loving wife, Hugh will be sadly missed by his children Hugh (Deb) MacPherson, Cheryl (Brian) Stawinski; grandchildren Sean, Christopher, Scott, Amanda, Cheyenne and dear friend Robin Cassidy.
