THORN, Malcolm Eric - 1939 - 2021 On the morning of September 20, 2021, at the age of 82, Malcolm Thorn peacefully passed to the next stage of his journey, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Predeceased by his parents, Eric and Winifred, Mal leaves behind his loving wife, Wendy, his five children Peter (Barti), Robert (Leeanne), Michael, Jeff (Kim) and Heidi (Howard) along with his beloved grandchildren Erica, Alexandra, Jake, Zack, Abbie, Jillian and Malcolm.
Mal was highly respected throughout his forty-plus-year career in the insurance industry, retiring as Chairman and President of Aon Re Canada.
He loved his work, requiring him to travel extensively.
Many of Mal's clients and colleagues became lifelong friends. With Wendy by his side, he enjoyed years of boating, cottaging, travelling, golfing and wintering in Florida.
He lived his life with integrity, generosity and had a wonderful sense of humour. He will be dearly missed!
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
