It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our father, William Allan “Billy” MacLean, 68 of Central West River.  He passed peacefully on April 25, 2022, at the Aberdeen Hospital surrounded by his loved ones.


Born to the late Vincent and Elsie MacLean, he was one of 2 sons and the last surviving member of their family.


Dad worked for 30+ years at Michelin where he retired.  In his retirement years, he spent his time working at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 16 in Pictou and making sure that his mom, Elsie, and wife, Wendy, had everything they needed in their final years.
He was a wonderful Dad and a great friend to many who was always there to help out in times of need. He had an excellent green thumb, passion for fishing, cooking and reading.


Dad was predeceased by his father, Vincent MacLean, mother, Elsie MacLean, brother, Robert MacLean, and beloved wife of 45 years, Wendy MacLean.


Dad is survived by his children, Robert (Jamie), Megan (Mike), and Michelle; grandchildren, Chloe, Jesse, Braydon, Colton, Makayla and Nathan, as well as several cousins, nieces and nephews.
