Obituary of Alistair MacLeod, teacher; born May 23, 1938; died August 27, 2008.
Alistair MacLeod, who has died at the age of 70 after a courageous battle with cancer, was a teacher who devoted his very full life to three things: his faith, education and, above all, to his family.
He was born into a Christian family in Dennistoun and this set the pattern for his entire life.
His devotion to his church, Broomknoll Parish Church in Airdrie, was complete and he worked tirelessly for both, to the end of his life – even when cancer was taking a huge toll on his body.
At the time of his death, he was chairman of the education committee, continuing his life-long interest in young people; he was also chairman of the nominating committee; he was a long-serving elder (ordained in 1973) and, as in education, his influence has permeated every area of his life in Broomknoll and its linked charge of Calderbank Parish Church.
