Lincoln and family
So sorry to hear of Wade's passing....
Martin Wade McClinchey
February 21, 1952 – July 8, 2022
It is with extreme sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Wade McClinchey on Friday, July 8th, 2022, surrounded by his loving wife, family, and friends.
Predeceased by his parents Elmer McClinchey and Hermine (Chartrand) McClinchey. Wade is survived by his wife Cathy (Ginger) McClinchey, his children Lincoln (Linda), Angela (Dave), Lee Ann (Leon). “Papa Wade” will be missed by his grandchildren (Alexis, Braden, Tristen, Camrin, Chloe, Noah, and Liam) and his great grandson Owen who Wade called “the star of the show”.
Wade came from a large family and will be missed by his siblings, Bert (predeceased by Noleen), Mary/Maisie (predeceased by Bob Laflamme), predeceased by Jim (Barb), Edgar (Marilyn), predeceased by Jack (Bertha), Bob (Rose), Eric (Jacquie), predeceased by Perry.
Wade worked at Ontario Hydro (Hydro One) for 30 years. He loved being outdoors with his dogs (Sarah and Sheila) hunting, fishing, ATVing, and trapping.
Wade enjoyed spending countless hours with his extended Sesekinika family and “Mom & Dad Mattice” in Muskoka. To quote a Ses family friend “He was such an icon, we lost a leader, hero and a true friend”.
Thank you to the amazing staff and workers from CCAC, Closing the Gap, Extendicare, TPR, and caregiver Marg Baker for their kindness and professionalism while caring for Wade. The family would also like to thank Dr. Moore for her support and understanding while caring for Wade.
As per Wade’s wishes, there will be no service. A private celebration of life for immediate family will be held at a later date. For those who wish to donate in Wade’s memory, a donation to Sesekinika Lake Property Owner’s Association would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be e-transferred to: firstname.lastname@example.org (please mention in the comments that it is a donation made in memory of Wade McClinchey).
