In Memoriam

Peter McLay

The Western community is mourning the death of Peter McLay, a 4th-year student in Mechatronics Engineering, who passed away with family by his side on March 31, 2022 in Kingston, Ontario.

Peter was a devoted student and member of the Western community. He was on the Dean’s list each year of his studies despite ongoing cancer treatments.

Western extends its condolences to his partner Sarah Jory, his parents Michael and Sally McLay, and sisters Sarah McLay and Heather McLay, and to his extended family, friends, and classmates.

Western reminds the campus community that counselling services are available to support students, faculty, and staff during this difficult time.
