MCEWEN, Philip Keith Francis (Bud)
March 13, 1932 — November 11, 2018
Bud McEwen passed away peacefully while sleeping on November 11th, 2018. He is survived by his wife Audrey, his son Tom (Veena) and grandsons Nolan and Graham, his son Brett and his brothers George and Tom. He was predeceased by his first wife Lois, son Craig and his brother Robert. Bud had a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Alberta, a discipline that defined his character and personality – analytical, pragmatic and brilliant. He worked most of his career as an engineer and executive for Alberta Power which he thoroughly enjoyed. He had many interests over his lifetime including racing boats, coaching hockey, carpentry and flying. However, he was happiest when spending time with his family or working on a project like the family cabin at Pigeon Lake, Alberta. Bud was very devoted to his family and he will be sadly missed by them and all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be sent care of Eunice Schmidtke to Brookhaven Care Centre at 1775 Shannon Lake Road, West Kelowna, BC V4T 2N7, where he was fortunate to spend his last weeks under their competent and loving care. A private family service to remember Bud will be held at a later date in Alberta.
