The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Ottawa Journal published in Ottawa, Ontario 2 July 1942:
Son of Former Ottawa Minister Killed in Action
Sgt. Pilot George Macdonald, son of the late Flight Lieut. Rev. George Macdonald, former minister of Southminster United Church, has been killed in action overseas, according to word received by his uncle, W. Ross Macdonald, M.P. for Brantford city.

The 20-year-old airman, whose mother, Mrs. Mary Macdonald, resides in Edmonton, recently was mentioned in despatches for bringing his aircraft back to its base after his gunner and observer had been sot. He was well known in the Capital and had a number of relatives here, including an aunt, Mrs. Annie Touzel, 106 Harmer avenue, and two uncles, Thomas Boland, of Killaloe, and Stewart Boland, of Cache Bay. His 16-year-old brother John is living with their mother in Edmonton. A sister, Mrs. Richard Hurlburt, lives in Halifax.

The late Flight Lieut. Rev. George Macdonald was minister of Calvin Presbyterian Church in Ottawa for some time prior to church union, and after that church amalgamated with Ottawa South Methodist Church to form the present Southminster United, he remained in the pulpit there for some time.

Rev. Mr. Macdonald later was called to Fergus and then went to Edmonton. He joined the Chaplain Service following the outbreak of the war and died not long afterwards following a sudden illness. He was a veteran of the First Great War.2
