My grandfather, the late Robert Vice, was the town funeral director in Winchester, Ontario. He and Rev. MacDonald were great friends from them constantly running into each other on "business". He was the closest thing to a pastor my grandfather had, and that was the way Rev. MacDonald operated... one-to-one. I don't know that I've ever met a more noble human being face-to-face than Rev. MacDonald. I remember after grandpa's passing we all sat in the Country Kitchen restaurant in Winchester and reminisced about all the adventures Rev. MacDonald and my grandfather had been through. His particular style of oratory was attention grabbing to be certain. He could have been a speech writer for a Prime Minister or President, but he spent his life in small towns being a blessing to his community. He wasn't a good man. He was a great man. And his kind shall not pass this way again. Thanks for making this planet better in your own unique way, sir.

Pat, our thoughts are with you at this time. It was a privilege to have had Angus as our minister at Aylmer. He was truly one of the old school in terms of his dedication to his ministerial duties. The phrase, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant" truly applies to him. Sincerely, Isobel and Jennifer Day

I was sorry to read of Rev MacDonald's passing. He was such a kind and gentle man. When I entered Teacher's College in 1956 , he signed a statement for me, attesting to the fact that I was a regular church-goer. This was a requirement in those days.......unfortunately something unheard of today. Although we lost touch over the years , I remember him as our church minister in Winchester and the visits that he made to us in our home. He was one of God's blessed . My deepest sympathy goes out to his family! Sincerely, Joan (Clark) Ellis

Mrs. MacDonald & Family: So sorry to heard the news about Reverend. He was always there for our family in good times and in grief. We will always be grateful to Rev. Angus and to you as well Pat for getting us through the hard times and sharing with us through the good times also. Angus was a tremendously kind and gentle man that always did so much for his congregation and ask of nothing in return. He was also so proud of our music abilities and always complimented us on them. We were also so fortunate and proud to have him speak the opening words of praise on our gospel CD "Duraven Revival". God Bless you Reverend for all the lives you have touched and enriched over the years. Madeline, Eldon, Grace, Murray, & Ostrom Family
