“To the Glory of God and in affectionate remembrance: Hugh Percival McMahon, 1863-1924”
Donated by his family. Unveiled April 15, 1924.
In the left panel, Jesus is dressed in red robes. The empty cross crowned with a halo symbolizes everlasting triumph. Above His head is the sun with its rays illuminating His figure, a dove with outspread wings, and at the peak of the panel is a lamb with a banner, a symbol of victory.
The right panel shows three figures: St. John the Baptist typified as the prophet in his rough garments and his tall staff crowned with the cross, St. Andrew with the cross of St. Andrew above his head, and St. John with an eagle.
Hugh Percival McMahon was a bank manager, first with the Traders, and later with the Royal Bank. He and his wife, Ethel had three children: Hugh, Ted, and D’Arcy. They were active members of the church and Hugh left money in his will for a window.
