AJ MacEachern

Aubrey John MacEachern

November 11, 1954 - November 11, 2015 

Aubrey, known as “A.J.” to many, passed away from this world on November 11, 2015.  He had been treated for heart and other complicating issues.   Aubrey was born in Charlottetown, PEI and spent many years living and working in British Columbia.  He was the loving son of Eleanor MacEachern and the late John A. MacEachern.  Dear brother of Adele (Carl) Crawford, Roberta (David) McKenna, Bonnie (Shane) Keddy, Stephen MacEachern and Darren (Heather) MacEachern. He will also be sadly missed by Aunt and Uncle Norma and Stanley Thompson, many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.

Following time served on Coast Guard Ships Aubrey left home at a young age to pursue a career in British Columbia.  During his years at sea he studied and achieved his Second Class Marine Engineer’s Status.  This included his placement as Chief Engineer on the Quadra and many years at the BC Ferries.  He spent many years with Dome Petroleum working in the Beaufort Sea (the Explorer II).  He made wonderful friends along the way while developing a love of travel, music and his culinary skills.  He loved to entertain with a generous spirit.  We will all miss him terribly but were blessed to have him in our lives.

The family would like to extend our deepest thanks to all who have expressed their condolences and who made Aubrey’s life so full.  Thank you as well to the extraordinary staff of ICU at Nanaimo Regional Hospital. 

A Celebration of Aubrey`s life will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2015 .  We look forward to seeing family and friends at the Thetis island marina, 3 - 5 pm for refreshments and conversation.
