It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of a son, brother, grandson and nephew, Owen McGean on Wednesday, Aug 14, 2019 in Marion Bridge at the age of 16.

Owen loved hanging out with his best friends, Brooklyn, Connor, Dylan, George, Landon, Stephen, Andy and Isaac, Tyrell, Cassidy, Anthony and along with many others.
Owen loved skateboarding, snowboarding, four wheeling, boxing and playing his Xbox. He loved spending time with family and had a special place in his heart for his animals. He had a green thumb for gardening and enjoyed every minute of it. Most of all, Owen would always be seen looking his best.
