Born on November 25, 1956 in Sydney, Al was the son of the late Joe and Marguerite (MacNeil) MacLean.
Al will be fondly remembered as a man who had very strong faith and loved his family. He enjoyed watching all sports and was also known to have one or more household projects on the go. However, Al was his happiest when spending time with his beloved grandson.

Besides his parents, Al is predeceased by his brother, Jamie MacLean and nephew, Brandon MacDonald.
There will be no visitation for the late Al MacLean. Memorial Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at 10 a.m. in Holy Redeemer Church, Whitney Pier with Fr. Paul Murphy officiating. Interment will be in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.
Covid protocols will be practiced at the service and for those unable to attend, ‘Live Streaming’ will be available on Holy Redeemer’s Facebook page.

I had worked with Allison at NSPC Lingan plant. He was always ready for a gag pulled on our co workers. But the pay back usually resulted in his suffering the worse. Always cheerful and a great friend to all he will be missed.
