Robert John “Bunny” MacLauchlan was the natural son of Dr. Robert Henry MacLauchlan and his first wife, Mamie Hoy. Often, the acorn does fall far from the tree: Bunny (as opposed to his father), was generally described as a fine man by all who knew him. He was born September 20, 1919 and saw service with the Royal Canadian Navy in WWII. Upon returning from his military service, he lived in Calgary until his death. In the early 1950s, he lived with his family at #1-1512 Twenty Second Ave., SW and worked as an electrician.
He married Verna Rita Pohl in 1945 and they had three offspring, some of which are surnamed Downey. Some of his children or his descendants may currently live in Calgary. Because we would like to know if “Bunny” passed on any stories of his father, the doctor (who was later killed in a drug-related murder in New Westminster in 1966), we are asking any descendants of “Bunny” MacLauchlan to contact us at our website address.
