JOHN EDMUND MACPHERSON Passed away very suddenly on Monday, September 8, 2008 in Winnipeg, Manitoba at age 65. Born February 10, 1943 in Oshawa, Ontario to Murray and Ella MacPherson. John grew up in Oshawa then attended Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario where he graduated with Bachelor of Science and Civil Engineering. In 1968 he worked as the Civil Engineer for the town of Arnprior, Ontario where he met and married the love of his life, Beverley Ann Ingram in 1969. He worked as a civil engineer for CP Rail and for Del Can Limited where he was the head engineer of a portion of the Light Rail Transit project for the city of Calgary. After this he returned to work for CP Rail until his retirement this spring. John was thorough and skilled at everything he set his hand to, whether it was work, personal study or his hobbies and interests.

'Papa' will be deeply missed by his seven grandchildren, Kassidy, Melissa, Evan, Jonathan, Elias, Mikyla, and Arwynn. He will be missed by his brother Jim MacPherson and sister Linda Armstrong as well as nieces, nephews and many other relatives and friends.
