It is with heavy hearts that we, the family announce the passing of our loving husband, father and grandfather, Michael Daniel MacLean on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, at the age of 66, in the Au Cala Unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

Born on November 4, 1957, Michael was a son of the late Michael and Shirley (MacLellan) MacLean.

Michael was the loving husband to wife, Beverley; father to Michael (Brittany), Andrew (Amy), and the proud grandpa of five grandsons, Michael, Ben, Brady, Jace, and Alec.
