Angus William McGivern

Big, kind gentle giant

One of the things I take most heart from is the amount and variety of life Angus was exposed to in his time with us, a world traveler by the time he reached a double digit age, he knew most of the international terminals by heart and, in his inimitable fashion, could run rings around the unaccompanied minor staff meant to shepherd him between flights, which I know also drove his brother insane but it was like trying to tame the wind when he was younger.

He lived in multiple countries, visited even more and was exposed to opportunities and work experiences that are not readily available.

All in all, a rich life

But what we should all be most proud of is that, despite the difficulties of his disease, he was just a good person, inherently kind, a gentle giant, a lover of life.
