Obituary of Ralph McLean

It is with great sadness that the family of Ralph Allen McLean announces his death, which occurred on Wednesday, July 10, 2024 at the Sussex Health Centre. He was born in Minto, NB, on January 9, 1949, a son of the late Weldon and Elsie (Doherty) McLean.

Ralph loved God first, placing his faith at the center of his life. His devotion to his family came next, always ensuring their well-being and happiness. Music was a passion that filled his soul, bringing joy and inspiration. Above all, he cherished people, fostering deep connections and spreading kindness wherever he went.

He also had a comical side that left you in stitches.

He is survived by wife of 50 years, Treva (Hopkins) McLean; son Jeremy (Kara) McLean of Quispamsis, NB; daughter Andrea (Corey) McAllister of Sussex Corner, NB; grandchildren: Myah, Addison, Corbin, Jovi; brother Raymond (Dawn) McLean of Mount Middleton, NB; sisters: Joyce (Sterling) Stewart of Minto, NB, Jean DeWitt of Fredericton, NB; as well as several nieces and nephews.  Along with his parents, Ralph was predeceased by his brother-in-law Bob DeWitt.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Wallace Funeral Home, 34 Sunnyside Drive, Sussex, NB (506-433-1176), and will currently be held privately.  However, there will be a public Celebration of Ralph’s Life on Saturday, July 27, 2024 from 1 to 4pm at 16 Pugsley Street, Sussex Corner.  This Celebration will consist of music, memories and refreshments.
