Name:Mr. John Angus Steele
South Uist
Originally from:North Boisdale
Place of death:Uist and Barra Hospital, Benbecula
Date of funeral:05/03/2010
Funeral Location:St. Peter's RC Church, Daliburgh
Presider:Fr. Roddy McAuley
Additional Info:Mr. Steele worked at the local Hydroboard Station in Daliburgh for many years. In 2005 he suffered a terrible accident and was in hospital for the last six years of his life. In his homily, Fr. McAuley said "John Angus had been in the Uist and Barra hospital for over six years after his accident. His family extend their gratitude to the doctors, nurses and all the staff within the hospital for their care and attention. Thanks too, to Tagsa Uibhist for the support they provided to John Angus and his family. We thank God for all the people who reached out to John Angus when he wasn't well. We remember too earlier days when John Angus worked in the Woollen Mill and the many years when he worked in the Daliburgh Hydro, the days when he was a keen runner and competed in the North and South Uist Games. John Angus competed and did very well in the Ben Nevis mountain race. He loved the pipes and in his latter years he would be happy listening to pipe music from morning until night.
It is worth reminding ourselves again that when Jesus wanted to give us an idea of how far reaching and all embracing the knowledge and care of our heavenly Father is, he spoke about the sparrows, “Can you not buy two sparrows for a penny”, he said. Yet not one falls to the ground without your Father knowing. Jesus went on to say, “You are worth more to the heavenly Father than hundreds of sparrows.”
May he rest in peace.
