His father was John Angus MacDonald, his grandfather was John Angus MacDonald, his great grandfather was John Angus MacDonald. . . . .   “Mac” to many, “Angus” to others, this man was truly great.  This year (1998) Angus made his “Trip to Paradise” and the Santa Rosa Scottish Dancers mourn his death and revel in the wonderful memories provided by his wit, shortbread, helping hands and especially his presence.
