"Donald John MacAulay was a quiet and reserved man, who looked after his own affairs with great integrity and was well known in the community through his business interests. Despite being self taught in business matters he operated a very successful Company and with the greatest of care negotiated himself and the Company through the disaster of the BCCI crises in the Western Isles, which was perhaps one of the harshest blows that he had to face in his business life. Local authority contracts, on which he depended so much, were reduced to a minimum. With great sadness he had to reduce his manpower accordingly, creating considerable unemployment in our local community. In recent months however, things began to look more promising for Donald John and his Company and perhaps it is with a touch of sadness that we reflect that he was taken away from us just as things were once again going his way creating much needed employment prospects within our area. His son, Father Seonnaidh was the main concelebrant along with the Island priests." (Written By Canon John Angus Galbraith in 1995)
