MALEY, Anthony (Tony) McGrory, passed away peacefully at Malton Village LTC, Mississauga on December 17, 2020 at the age of 93. Born in Paisley, Scotland on September 8, 1927, he immigrated to Canada in 1970 to make a new life for his family. He was asked to come to Canada to set up the estimating division at Babcock and Wilcox, where he enjoyed a long career, traveling frequently until his retirement.
Predeceased by his beloved wife of 60 years, Ellen (nee Doherty 2014), survived by his daughter Christine (Ed) and his granddaughter Aneisa. Tony was part of the Parachute Regiment, an airborne infantry regiment of the British Army, best recognized by their maroon beret and parachute wings, he was part of the regiment for two years towards the end of the Second World War.
While growing up in Scotland I remember going far on the train, a day out to watch the horse races in Rothesay, an early introduction to math and fun. Tony and Ellen enjoyed spending many summers at the beach in Southampton. Tony played golf almost every day, while enjoying a little Scotch in the club house after the game. Tony spent many years as a member of the Galt Country Club and later as a member of the Galt Curling Club. Tony was an avid ice skater learning to skate and play hockey in Paisley. In Cambridge, he continued to play in a league in the Shade St Arena and later he was a referee when he felt he was not fast enough to keep up with the "boys". Tony enjoyed singing his party piece "That Old Black Magic" at the house parties "the Scottish crowd" held after they had all immigrated to Canada. They made many good memories.
The family would like to thank the staff at Malton Village LTC for their care and attention over the past three years. They truly went above and beyond anything that was in a job description.
Donations to the Alzheimer's Society would be appreciated, donations can be made at their website: alzheimer.ca/on/en/take-action/donate.
A private family Funeral Service will be held, with interment following at Parklawn Cemetery.
