McCain, Wallace (13 May 11)
April 9, 1930 – May 13, 2011
Earlier this week, we learned that Mr. Wallace McCain, the husband of our former Honourary Colonel, Margaret McCain, passed away on May 13 at age 81 after a 14-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
In 1995, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada for being “one of Atlantic Canada’s most notable entrepreneurs” and was promoted to Companion in 2008. In 1993, he was inducted into Canadian Business Hall of Fame and the New Brunswick Business Hall of Fame in 1997. In 2003, he was awarded the Order of New Brunswick.
He has received honorary degrees from Mount Allison University, the University of King’s College, the University of New Brunswick, the University of Toronto and St. Francis Xavier University.
The GGHG Association offers its deep and heartfelt sympathy to Col McCain and her family and our thoughts and prayers are with them during this time of loss.
