In Memoriam Herb MacAulay


Herbert is lovingly remembered by siblings Dianne Clyburne, Helen McKinnon, John MacAulay, and May MacDonald, children Steven and Barbara Ann MacAulay, grandchild Eric MacAulay, and many dear friends including Mike and Lee Lucas, and Jake and Annie McKenzie.


Herbert was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, on January 21, 1936. He traveled the country after joining the military, where he served for thirty-one years, coaching sports and providing physical education, before retiring as a Sergeant. After retiring from the military, he finally settled in Chilliwack, British Columbia, with his wife and children. Even after retiring from the military, he provided for his family by providing various services for the bases, and even owned his own chimney business. Throughout his life, he had various important and interesting jobs, such as construction on the Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow, landscaping, and telegram delivery.


Herbert enjoyed various sports throughout his life, but was particularly passionate about golf. He loved fishing, crabbing, and hunting, especially with his family by his side. Herbert also loved his garden, and found great joy in tending his garden with his wife, children, and grandchildren.


The funeral service will take place on Thursday, November 2, 2023, at 11:00 AM, at Cooke’s Presbyterian Church, 45825 Wellington Ave, Chilliwack, BC V2P 2E1. It will be officiated by Reverend Willem van de Wall. Burial will follow at Vedder View Gardens Cemetery, 44675 Watson Rd., Chilliwack, BC V2R2Y6, at 1:00 PM.


Herbert will be remembered as a loving and proud father, husband, relative, and friend by all who knew him.

Gerry McGarry Appreciation...

Just wanted to take a moment to thank Gerry McGarry for his recent donation to the PERIScope. I'm sorry I missed him this year when he was in Arizona but hope we can make plans to hook up for a round

Sadness at losing yet another fellow tradesman, and our condolences to his family for their loss of him passing.

the greatest thing to hear is his love of family because in the end they are the one’s who are with you and know how important andwho you really are. God Bless

So sad. I knew the man well. We served as a/i's in Gagetown in the sixties, and he drove my wife Joanne to the hospital for the delivery of my son, as I had been posted to Kingston at the time. A man with a great sense of humor and always friendly, I really liked him.
