MacPherson, Duncan John "DJ"- Age 75 years of Whycocomagh, Inverness Co. With profound sadness we the family of DJ announce his passing on Monday, January 14, 2019 in the Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital, Inverness.
DJ was born in Orangedale East on February 2, 1943 he was a son of the late Ross and Margaret (MacDonald) MacPherson. DJ was happy and would be there for anyone, at anytime. He worked at various jobs.
DJ enjoyed nothing more than a good game of auction. And watch out if he was losing the game on Saturday night at his sister, Edna’s house. He enjoyed nothing more than a good conversation of politics, and if you weren’t talking about the Liberal party forget it, he wasn’t chatting politics.
