From: Michelle McKay, Cold Spot Paranormal Research™:

“On April 15, 2007 my great-uncle pioneer UFOlogist Henry McKay passed away. His contributions to UFOlogy and physical trace research will never be forgotten. Uncle began his research in 1965, when he was with the Air Force and one of the guys in the tower saw something they felt was bizarre. They turned to my uncle to investigate, this was his first case.

Those who knew him personally can attest that he was strongly dedicated to his research and gave his life to it. Even up until the last moments before he went into the hospital he was actively investigating. I will never forget him standing in his suit telling me about his present investigation into “mysterious balloons” in the area. He was the Director of MUFON for Canada, taught UFOlogy at a high school in Toronto, and was one of the first in the world to specialize in physical traces of UFO landings.

Sue Darroch of ParaResearchers said it right when she said that there is a bond between paranormal researchers through our love of the paranormal even if we have different methods and opinions. So true, thanks Sue. I want to thank all of you in the paranormal research community for your condolences and appreciation for Uncle’s long-standing contributions to this research, it really is appreciated and seeing everybody who cared about what he did provides comfort and helps with his passing. Not only was he highly intelligent, he truely was a good person and had a very caring “spirit” if you will, about him. He was cremated, the way he wanted to be. He passed away very peacefully and was at ease with his predicament and doesn’t want anybody to grieve over him. We will all miss him greatly. This tribute page is for you Uncle…”

The Passing Of A Canadian UFOlogist

It was with sadness that we learned of the passing of Henry
McKay, earlier this month. Henry was a long standing contributor to Canadian
ufology and former MUFON Director for Canada.

Henry McKay had made invaluable contributions to UFO research in Canada. A
book that I reviewed just last year The Missing Seven Hours, by David Haisell is in
large part based on Henry’s investigation into this fascinating case.

I had plans to meet with Henry this past November along with his niece who is
following in her uncle’s footsteps, in the hopes of interviewing him, but ufortunately
that meeting never took place. His presence within UFOlogy will be sorely missed.

Our deepest condolences go out to Michelle McKay, and her family at this time.


It is with sadness that I report the passing yesterday of Henry McKay, former
MUFON Director for Canada. Recognition for Henry’s long standing service to
Canadian ufology was paid to him on Sun Sept 25/05 at UofT’s Convocation
