Angus was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. He was the son of the late Harold and Gertrude (nee MacDonald) MacPherson of Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
Angus headed west in the late 1970's and met the love of his life, Anne, in 1982 at a Maritime Reunion Association weekend bash. He had a great sense of humour, loved to tell a story and made everyone feel like a friend.
Angus was an employee with the City of Calgary Recreation Department for over fifteen years. He made many friends through work and felt most at home at the rink or with a fishing rod in his hands.
