At home on Monday, November 8, 2021, the death occurred of Kevin Blain MacDonald of Charlottetown, age 71 years. Dear son of Henry “Bud” MacDonald (Mae) and father of Sharie Hughes (Robi) and Nick Holmes (Amy Morrow). Grandfather of Sam, Simon, Leo and Max Hughes. Brother of Heather MacSwain (Rollie) and Kathy Adams and uncle to Ben MacSwain, Katelyn Miller (Dave), Julia MacSwain (Cullen Mullally), Joee Adams (Jaime Hood) and Jarrod Adams (Kristy Dutcher). Step-father of Shelley Hanson (Jason Woodside) of Charlottetown and Ross Hanson (Grace) of Toronto and step-grandfather of Kylan, Maddon and Rhivi. Kevin will be missed by friends Doug and Linda McNeil. Predeceased by his mother Marina MacDonald (Brown) and his wife Barbara Lynn MacDonald (Hanson) and his sister Sharon MacDonald. Resting at Hillsboro Funeral Home, Stratford.
Kevin worked at the Public Archives in Charlottetown for more than 30 years and after his retirement he did some casual work for the PEI Legislature of Assembly. He was a very accomplished track and field runner, played badminton for many years, but baseball was the sport he loved to watch and especially the Blue Jays. He loved music very much and took pride in his music collection. Dalvay beach was his favorite place where he had many great times with his children, family and friends. Kevin cherished these memories!
“And when the night was cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me. SHINE UNTIL TOMORROW…LET IT BE”
May you rest in peace Kevin… we love you and will miss you so much.
