HUGH GLEN MONTAGUE MONCRIEFF 1936 -2014 Hugh died peacefully on February 9, 2014 at the Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton after a brief illness. Hugh was born in Winnipeg on September 29, 1936 to Nancy and Ernie Moncrieff. Graduating from the University of Manitoba in 1961 with a Bachelor of Arts and the University of Western Ontario with an MBA in 1963, he pursued many business interests finally settling on a successful career in real estate. Hugh married his life partner of almost 50 years, Paula Bridgman on May 16, 1964. He is survived by his loving wife and their children, daughter Carla Marlyn of Calgary, and son Hugh (Jennifer) of Winnipeg. He leaves behind his two brothers, Murray and Colin, both of Winnipeg. Hugh was especially proud of his grandchildren, Melissa and Michael Marlyn of Calgary and William and John Moncrieff of Winnipeg. He was an exceptional athlete be it hockey, basketball or golf. A wonderful story-teller and raconteur, he loved to play the piano by ear and lift the spirits of those around him with his conversation and personality. We are grateful for, above all else, his kindness and generosity to those whose many lives he touched through his volunteer work with the Cross Cancer Institute, his many friends and work colleagues. The family wishes to acknowledge the caring and attentive staff at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and the Palliative Care Unit at the Grey Nuns Hospital. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 22 at 4:00 p.m. at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011 - 114 Street, Edmonton.
