Vernon McLean, of Mount Forest, passed away at Louise Marshall Hospital, Mount Forest on Wednesday, February 12th, 2020 in his 94th year. Beloved husband of 70 years to Norma McLean.

Dear great-grandfather to Reid, Autumn, Morgan, Ella, Connor, Nathan, Thomas and Audrey. Vernon will be missed by many nieces and nephews.

Born in West Luther Township, Vernon was a devoted farmer and was happiest when he was outside, working with his hands. He farmed for 50 years before moving to Mount Forest. His love for farming was surpassed only by his love for family and especially for Norma. He will be remembered most for his bright smile and friendly nature.
