While on a stopover in Arnprior on his way back home from Newfoundland, Desmond McEachern of Calgary passed away quite suddenly but very peacefully on Wednesday, July 26th, 2017. He was 68. Des was completing one of the items on his "bucket list"... a journey to Newfoundland on his beloved Harley. A couple years ago, Des began a battle with cancer and soon became aware that it was time to do the things that he had put off for so long. An accomplished and retired contractor, Des set out to live the dream. The rest is now history. He will be burried with his parents in his hometown of Thunder Bay.In the care of the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel Ltd., 50 John Street North, Arnprior.
