Exerting himself to his limit, Allan raced to get William and got hold of him as he came to the surface after going down. He started to swim ashore, but his own life was soon in jeopardy as the frantic and helpless older brother got a grip on him that threatened to carry the two of them under in the vicious undertow which was running. Swept To Sea. In an effort to save both of them, Allan broke the hold of his older brother, who sank before Allan could again get a grip on him.

In a bad way himself, the younger of the Boones started for shore and seeing James Arbuckle, Dominion No. 6 and George Taylor, R.N., of May Street, Glace Bay he shouted to them that his brother was drowning.

Bordillon Gilbert Bordillon Cape Breton Post 1/19/2008
Gilbert Bordillon 1946-2008 With deep sorrow we announce the unexpected death of Gilbert Bordillon, 61, of Wreck Cove. He died suddenly in Victoria County Memorial Hospital on Jan. 16, 2008. No one who crossed paths with Gilbert during his 10-year sojourn on Cape Breton's north shore will forget his enormous energy, enthusiasm and good will. His infectious laugh and 'joie de vivre' transcended all boundaries, creating a sense of universality and an enduring personal immediacy. A hug from Gilbert was like no other. Together he and Jitka created their Cape Breton paradise, Singing Pebbles, overlooking a magnificent shoreline. From the glacial rubble of coarse stone, they created a veritable sea of fertility, with gardens, ponds, animals and buildings. From these resources, they built a growing small business base. Gilbert's blade of enthusiasm was never dulled by the adversities that many might crumble under. He just got on with what he wanted to accomplish on a daily basis, no holds barred. Gilbert was a 'chef of all chefs' treating his friends to 'haute cuisine' delights fashioned from what he grew, raised and gathered locally. He set a new standard for those who take delight in gastronomic finesse. Jitka's desserts were always prefaced with Gilbert's fine cheeses, ordered from his special global suppliers, and a good baguette. Of course there was always a fine wine and genuine bonhomie. Please join family and friends from away and here in Wreck Cove in a celebration of Gilbert's life. A date in mid- February will be announce later. 1/16/2008

Edmond Boudreau - 77 yrs, New Waterford - Edmond Boudreau, 77 yrs, of LeDrew Street, New Waterford, passed away on Sunday, January 2, 2011, at his residence. The funeral arrangements are incomplete and will be announced by the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home in New Waterford.

CBP dated Jan. 4, 2011:

Edmond Boudreau

Born in: Belle Marche, Cheticamp, Nova Scotia, Canada Born on: 09/10/1933

Passed away in: New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada Passed away on: 02/01/2010

On Sunday, Jan. 2, 2011, of this new year, when a cure was not to be, a truly remarkable husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother and friend passed away quietly at home after sharing an unforgettable Christmas with his entire family in the family home on LeDrew Street. Born Oct. 9, 1933, in Belle Marche, Cheticamp, he was the son of the late Amedee and Justile (Poirier) Boudreau. At the age of 16 he came to New Waterford and worked with the carpentry trade for his uncle Leo Boudreau for many years. His sons joined him at a very early age and together they formed a company 'Edmond and Sons'. For many years they shared funny stories and laughter at the supper table. At the ripe age of 70 he made it clear that nothing would please him more than to go out west and work the trade with his sons yet again. He had a passion for music, playing guitar and singing, listening to fiddle, and step-dancing. As a member of Mount Carmel parish he loved to attend church and in his younger years sang with the church choir. Edmond was also a 50 year honorary member of the Carpenter's Union, Local 1588, a former member of the KOC and one of the founding members of the Cercle Evangeline (French Club). His sense of humour was with him to the very end. He loved to laugh and would always muster up the strength to let out a bellow. His lingering heavy French accent was one of his many charming qualities despite the fact that he lived in an English speaking community for so many years. He was an avid journal keeper and one only had to query a date and he'd make quick reference to his notes. His toolbox was never too far away as he rushed to tend to anything in need of repair. Edmond leaves behind to treasure memories his wife of 53 years, Pauline (Chaisson) sons, Brian (Yvonne), Wayne, Eric, all of Alberta daughters, Denise (Philip) McNeil, New Victoria, Willena (Danny) Campbell grandchildren, Christopher and Meagan, Matthew and Rachelle, Erik and Rebecca and numerous nieces and nephews brothers, Leo (Jane), Ottawa, Hector (Shirley), Winnipeg sisters, Zabeth Bourgeois, Marie Theresa, Matilda, Dora (Clifford) Aucoin, Lorette (Simi John) Poirier, all of Cheticamp. He was predeceased by older brother, Joe, sisters, Agnes and Lorette. Visitation will be held Wednesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. A funeral mass of celebration for Edmond will take place Thursday, Jan. 6 at 2 p.m. in the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, with Fr. Ray Huntley officiating. Burial will be in Mount Carmel Cemetery with a luncheon to follow at St. Leonard's Parish Hall on Convent Street, New Waterford. Donations in his memory may be made to the Hospice/Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton or a charity of one's choice. Online expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at: www.vjmcgillivray.ca. "We can still hear him whistle while he works. Ah, ah, well, well, well."

Elizabeth 'Lizzy' Boutilier (Gouthro)

Born in 02/05/1921

The sun rose for Elizabeth on May 02, 1921.
Her sunset came gently on October 29, 2009.
Lizzy is survived by her children, Lucy Lirette, Sheila (Ronnie) MacLeod, Helen (John) MacNeil, Charlene (Blaine) Thomas, Fred (companion Peggy Metcalf).
Also mourning her loss are eleven grandchildren; twelve great grandchildren; her sisters Christy Burke, Mary O’Brien, Isabelle Baker, and brother Fred ‘Teddy’ Gouthro.
Lizzy will be missed by Anna Boutilier and John Nickelo who affectionately thought of her as their ‘second mother’.
She was predeceased by husband, Charlie; son-in-law, George Lirette and great-granddaughter Ariel Lirette.
Predeceased as well by her parents, Nelly (nee Boutilier) and Joe Gouthro; three brothers and three sisters.
Lizzy was a loving spouse for 39 years, and no child could wish for a better mother.
Her way was to have each child believe that “Mom liked me best”, but in her heart there were no favorites. She treated all her children with equal measures of love and respect.
Although she raised her family during hard times, her kindness assured that no one who needed a meal went without, especially at Christmas when plates of turkey were always sent to any lonely person in the neighborhood.
Even as the years took their toll, Lizzy kept her interests in cooking, baking and home decorating. Nothing delighted her more than adding to and rearranging her vast collection of silk flowers.
Great fun for her was playing cards. Her reputation as a card-shark was well earned. Many a challenger sat with her over a crib board only to come away “skunked” at the end of the game. She loved to win and when she won, her laughter was music to the ear.
Mom left a poem that she recorded years ago. She wanted her children to know that “when the time came” we should dry our tears and know that her spirit would always be with us.
Lizzy’s family and friends will miss her greatly and will take comfort from the good memories.
She is at peace with her Lord.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, November 03, 2009 from 2-4,7-9 p.m. in the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. The funeral mass officiated by Rev. Andrew Gillies is Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. in St. James Church, Gardiner Mines followed by interment in the parish cemetery.
All are invited to join the family for a reception in the parish hall, directly below the church.

Boutilier Henry 'Charles' Boutilier Cape Breton Post 3/8/2014
It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of Charles Boutilier on Feb. 20 in Fort St. John, B.C.
Charles was the son of Fred Boutilier and Nancy Georg. He is survived by his brothers Eric (Jody) and Allen who now reside in Fort St. John, B.C. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Charles was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Charles and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Boutilier, and maternal grandparents, Henry and Betty George.
Charles touched so many with his soft and humble character. A definition of true, honest, and such sincere attitude that would glow when he entered a room.
The family would like to thank all their East-Coast friends and family for the kindness and compassion extended to them during this difficult time.
When the stars align
That is when she will be mine
And I know that may take forever
But that is how long I would wait
for us to be together

"To those I love
The only thing between us
Whether we are big or small
Is a tiny little heartbeat
Just a heartbeat - that is all
So when you’re sad and lonely
And my death seems so unfair
You will always hear me whisper
'Touch your heart, you’ll find me there'.”

Boyd Robert Wright Alexander ‘Bob’ Boyd CBP 5/7/2012
Robert Wright Alexander ‘Bob’ Boyd, 53, passed away Friday, May 4, 2012, surrounded by family after a valiant battle with cancer. The son of Jean and the late Earle Boyd, Bob grew up in Halifax attending Halifax West and then Saint Mary’s where he graduated with a bachelor of commerce and an MBA. Bob was employed throughout his career with the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism. Bob spent eight years managing the Nova Scotia Tourism Office in Portland, Maine. It was here wonderful friendships and memories were forged through coaching hockey and the many hockey trips throughout New England and Sweden. Charlie, Barbara, Jennifer, Sarah and Chad Drew of Portland became his second family. When Bob returned to Halifax he met the love of his life, Kim Jardine. Kim is the best thing that ever happened to Bob. Bob was also devoted to Grandma Jean’s third grandchild, Molly the cat who in recent months was his devoted companion. Throughout his life, Bob was always a sports fan. He played hockey throughout school and then coached teams in Halifax, Portland, Bedford, most recently assisting with the C P Allen High School team, “the Cheetah Family”. Bob had a love of travelling. He enjoyed frequent jaunts to Maine where with Kim’s assistance he honed his shopping skills. Visits to Kim’s family compound in Boularderie let him reconnect with his Cape Breton roots. His love of all things British made London a favourite destination. Bob’s other great passion was reading. Bob was rarely seen without multiple books and newspapers. While the purist in him preferred the joy of hard covered, lofty tomes, he did recently adapt to his Kindle. Bob was truly a gifted individual, one of the most intelligent people you could meet. He was a man of strong opinions who did not tolerate fools. He was deeply private and, at times, a man of very few words, as his family often found out when trying to find out what he was up to. Bob was a devoted son who always was there for his mother. Even when very ill, her health and well being were paramount. His dry wit, often tinged with a hint of sarcasm, kept everyone on their toes. Bob had a great sense of humour which allowed him to develop the ability to tease anyone. Most importantly, he genuinely cared about people and always acted on that with kindness and generosity. Bob had a rare ability to relate to children. He was always “one of the kids”. This continued throughout his coaching. Bob had a special relationship with his nieces and nephew, whether playing Lego, cheering them on at soccer and football games, calling to hear about their most recent adventures, teasing or just showing constant love and support. Uncle Bobby was always interested in all their successes and activities. He was the perfect uncle-fun, quirky, indulgent, supportive and always proud. Bob is survived by his wife Kim Jardine; mother Jean Boyd; sister Cathy Boyd (Brian Warshick); niece Samantha Warshick; nephew Alex Warshick; in-laws Wayne and Doreen Jardine; brother-in-law Kyle Jardine and wife Sylvia; special nieces Lindsey and Lily Jardine and the Jardine family grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Special thanks to the VON, Palliative Care nurses and doctors, Dr. Mark Dorreen, Oncology nurse Lynn Shore, the chemo nurses, Peter and Maria Hayes, John Brennan and “the Tourism Family” for their incredible support during Bob’s illness. Donations may be made in Bob’s memory to Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada, Diabetes Association or a charity of choice. Bob will always be remembered for the person he was. He will be loved and missed. Visitation will be held in J.A. Snow Funeral Home 339 Lacewood Dr., Halifax, N.S., 455-0531, Monday, May 7, 2012, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where a memorial service will be held Tuesday, May 8, 2 p.m. in the Chapel.

She was born at Belfry, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, on Aug. 26, 1905, a daughter of the late Alexander and Sarah Ann (Munroe) MacIntyre. She grew up in Belfry, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and attended the one-room schoolhouse at Belfry. In 1940, she began her married life in Everett, Mass., but soon moved to the "country" in Georgetown, Mass., to raise her family. In the country she was able to have a large vegetable garden and fruit trees, and kept a barn with dairy cows and chickens, selling the eggs to supplement the family income. After her children were grown, her house became a popular gathering place for her grandchildren. On many weekends she had a houseful. She was able to pass on her love of gardening, her recipe for Mimi’s rolls and an attitude that wealth comes from the friends and family in your life. She resided in Georgetown until after her husband’s death, selling her home in 1984. She moved briefly into an apartment in Newburyport, Mass., before settling into a senior apartment complex in Merrimac, Mass., where she was close to her daughter Jean. She was known for constantly driving everywhere, even to Canada and Florida. For the past five years, she resided with her daughter and son-in-law Chris and Peter Rasmussen in Rye and Durham.

She was a member of the First Congregational Church of Georgetown, Mass., and the Ladies Guild. Some of the many things she enjoyed in her retirement were knittting, cooking, shopping, reading, visiting and especially traveling. Some of her many trips were to Florida, Aruba, Jamaica, Spain, England, Scotland, Ireland, Labrador, Manitoba and an annual trip back home to the "Old House" at Belfry, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, just in time for the Strawberry Festival. She especially enjoyed spending time with her family and sharing her memories of growing up in Canada. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

Her strong faith was a comfort to her and was part of the values and character that enabled her to be such a good parent and friend.

In addition to her adored children, she nurtured all with her wit, wisdom and compassion. She was a true "people person", and to know her was to love her. In addition to her daughter Stephanie and son Colin, Missy is survived by her brother Sandy MacPherson (Marie) of North Bay, Ontario. She was predeceased by her brother David MacPherson. She leaves her niece Toby Berry (Scott) of North Bay, Ontario and many cousins, family members, and friends.

Dorothy (Cozzolino) Brennan
Born: March 20th, 1924
Passed on: August 8th, 2013
It is with great sadness that we commend our mother, Dorothy Cecilia Brennan to the arms of The Lord.
'Dottie' was predeceased by her parents, James and Regina Cozzolino (who died during childbirth) and her dear brother, Tommy Cozzolino, who died in the Second World War.In her teenage years she lived with her cousins, “The Burkes" and grandparents, in their Sydney home.
Dottie attended Mt. St. Bernard in Antigonish and obtained a secretarial science diploma which served her well later in life; with Boland’s, National Sea Products and Dalhousie School of Architecture.
In 1949, Dottie married John Brennan and settled in North Sydney to raise a family of six children.
Our mother’s capacity to give was endless. Her playful personality, generous smile and quick wit made her both interesting and enjoyable. With a station wagon full of (six) kids, she was never too busy to add their friends, for camping, skating or any other activity including formal and informal roles in Brownies, Scouts, music festivals, sailing and any other event that her children were involved in.
Always an outdoor adventurer (hiking, camping, skiing) Dottie and regatta shipmates Jean Mclean, Hilda Tremblett and Mary Astephen were undaunted and known for bringing home the silver in all types of weather. She continued to skate, golf and bowl well into her 80s.
Dottie leaves behind her six children, John (Helen), Jeannie (John), Tom (Brenda), Terry (Marilee), Jim (Linda), Pat (Stephanie); 11 grandchildren, Ishmael (Ann-Marie), Jude (Taryn), Miriah, Brittany, Talia, Colin, Johnny, Alanna, Cameron, Chloe and Elise.
Dottie always carried a little sadness in her heart for the loss of her brother (who lied about his age to fight for Canada) and a life without her mother. We are comforted in knowing that she will now share their embrace that she has so long waited for.
For their kindness and care, the family is thankful to Melville Heights and Gardens, Lynn Fitzgerald and compassionate staff of Halifax Infirmary unit 8.4.
A celebration of our mother’s life took place on Aug. 10 at Saint Michael’s Catholic Church, Halifax, N.S. As per her wishes, Dottie’s ashes rest alongside her mother in Cape Breton.

Born in 27/12/1924 at North Sydney , Nova Scotia , Canada

Born in North Sydney, December 27, 1924, John was the son of the late Gerald and Elizabeth (Penny) Brennan. He attended St. Mary’s University in Halifax, graduating with a BS degree, before enlisting in the war effort aboard HMCS Oshawa as a Stoker and was present at the surrender of German Submarine U889 off the coast of Newfoundland in the dying days of the Second World War.
A man of vision with a passion for travel, he thereafter joined the family wholesale business as a salesman who toured the many rural shops and villages woven throughout Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, developing relationships along the way which outlast his lifetime. In the early 1960s he expanded the North Sydney Warehouse to become the Canadian Agent for the French Colonies of St. Peirre & Miquelon prompting the construction of the French wharf waterfront facilities and the establishment of Brennan’s Travel Bureau & Agency. The last man to board the ferry before Newfoundland confederation, John had a flare for the dramatic as was later evidenced when he landed in Moscow as a tourism delegate along with the Canadian Press Corp. aboard Air Canada’s inaugural flight to the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War.
He established Atlantic Cruise Lines with local investors and brought Scottish Cruise Ship MV St. Ninian to tour Atlantic Canada, “The French Islands” and the waters of Bras d’Or. Encouraging friends to join him, he orchestrated numerous group expeditions to exotic destinations, sharing his passion and curiosity of foreign lands with clients worldwide. An avid sailor all his life he pioneered marketing Cape Breton as a world class destination and was instrumental as Commodore of the Northern Yacht Club in its successful bid to host the World Snipe Championships in 1979. Well known for his gregarious and generous qualities, his ongoing involvement in community service included the Northside Kinsmen, the Knights of Columbus and the Canadian Cancer Society where for years he headed the annual Daffodil Drive.
John was a member of St. Joseph’s Church, North Sydney.
John is survived by his devoted wife and best friend, Joan (MacLeod) Brennan; his brother, Gerald ‘Bruz’ (Jeannie); his sister, Celine (Jack) Hatherly; his six children, John (Helen), Jeannie (John), Tom, Terry (Marilee), Jim (Linda), Pat (Stephanie) and their mother Dorothy Brennan, his 11 grandchildren, Ishmael, Jude, Miriah, Brittany, Talia, Colin, Johnny, Alana, Cameron, Elise and Chloe, and also by his nieces and nephews.

Brewer John 'Johnnie' Brewer CBP 12/27/2013
Born: March 24th, 1932
Passed in: Sydney
Passed on: December 21st, 2013
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father John after a long and
courageous battle with cancer.
John was the son of the late Lawrence and Mary (nee Gillis) Brewer of Whitney Pier.
Johnnie or Brewer, as he liked to be called, was a hard working retired steelworker. Our dad was a very
private man. Even though he could be a little bit "Grumpy", as his grandchildren fondly called him, our
father was fiercely protective of his family. We knew that he loved each and everyone of us by his actions,
however big or small. Our dad was very kind hearted and only those close to him got to see this side of
him.
Dad was a die hard Montreal Canadiens fan and enjoyed watching the games with his daughter Michelle.
He also enjoyed reading and was quite knowledgeable on many topics.
Our Dad was an excellent storyteller and everyone loved hearing him tell his stories. Johnnie loved to have
a drink and a dance; he was known to have the gift to gab and he passed this gift on to many of his family
members.
Johnnie is survived by his daughter Michelle (at home); sons Lawrence (Lynn), and John Wayne (Beryl);
also his son-in-law Dana Seppola. Twelve grandchildren Wade (Johnna), Anna (Todd Harrison), Jon
(Ashley), Nicole (Ron Mullin), Chris (Chandra), Natasha (Jason Higdon), Cheryl, Crystal (Daryl Imrie), Darcie
(Kelly Coulter), Joel (Lisa), Amy and Jordan Baker. Nine great grandchildren Jackson, Jorga, and Jay Imrie,
Nicholas Confiant, Charli and Kylie Coulter, Jolie Seppola, Fiona Andersen and Jackson Baker. A beloved
sister, Mary Colbourne, to whom he was very close; special sister-in-law Rose (Bosco) Harkin; and
brothers-in-law Simon (Margie) and Michael (Elaine) Arsenault, as well as, many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parent, Johnnie was predeceased by the love of his life, his wife Cecilia; a son in infancy and
just recently his beloved daughter Debbie Seppola. Also, a very special brother-in-law Reg Colbourne; a
beloved aunt Sadie and her son Francis (Rocky) MacDougall. Dad also was broken hearted by the passing
of his cat, Smokey, last year. He is now in heaven with all the people he loved and missed dearly. Our loss
is Heaven's gain.
The family would like to extend a very special thank you to Dr. Chris Lawand for the kind and
compassionate care that our Dad received.
As per our father's wishes, cremation has taken place. The family will have a celebration of life on Friday,
December 27, 2013, from 7 - 9 p.m. at the Pier Community Funeral Home.
No flowers, donations can be made to the An Cala Ward at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
Please join us and tell us one of the many stories you remember about our Dad's incredible life.
"Rest easy Dad, you will be forever in our hearts!!!"ca

Born on the Meadow Road, North River Bridge on November 6, 1936, he was the son of the late Peter and Sarah Briggett. He was a member of Drummond United Church, Ross Ferry.
He spent his early years working in the logging industry and fishing the North River. He spent time on the Great Lakes and lived in Ontario for a number of years. He returned to Ross Ferry and worked with the Dept. of Transportation until his retirement.
Monty was an avid hunter and fisherman and spent many days stomping the wooded areas of North River and Boularderie Island, and he had many fish stories to tell of the adventures enjoyed by he and his friends Peter Harrison and JC MacDonald while 'out the river'. He enjoyed when friends dropped in for a cup of tea, and was very happy when his family came home for a visit. At times he could be coaxed into a tune on his harmonica, and sometimes even a Gaelic song. He enjoyed many trips to Ontario to visit his children and grandchildren, but was always happiest sitting at his kitchen table in Ross Ferry.
Monty is survived by his three children, Brian (Anna), Brockville, Ontario; Clayton (Debbie), Kitchener, Ontario; Arlene MacLeod (Donnie), Brampton, Ontario; his five grandchildren, Matthew MacLeod (Maja), Mississauga, Ontario; Colton MacLeod, Barrie, Ontario; Carson Briggett, Toronto, Ontario; Christopher MacDonald, Brockville, Ontario; Tamara Deines (Trevor), Kemptville, Ontario; and three great-grandchildren, Eva Deines, Kailyn Roy and Blake Wilson.

Ma had a love for animals, she owned many dogs, cats, horses, and even a squirrel that she named Squirrelly that she would make sure was fed every day. She would adopt any animal in need and invite them into her loving home. Ma would usually be found in the horse barn with Nancy caring for and cleaning the horses, one of her miniature horses that she had a particular fondness for was Sonny Ray Lee, whom she always had to have a handful of raisins for, they will all certainly miss her.
