Farquharson Charles A Farquharson Sydney Post Record p 2 2/6/1939 R. Fraser MAN WHO DUG FIRST SOD AT PLANT PASSES Charles A Farquharson, 82, Succumbs On Saturday To Long Illness The man who brought in the construction crew and turned the first sod on the site of Sydney’s steel industry is dead here today. Widely Known He is Charles A Farquharson, 82, son of the late Rev Alexander Farquharson, prominently known Cape Breton Presbyterian minister in the early days. Built Railway In addition to playing a big part in the establishment of the steel plant in the boom days, Mr Farquharson was contractor in charge of the major portion of the construction of the Sydney and Louisburg railway line. Born at Middle River, C.B., he attended school in this city, later taught at Point Edward, and afterwards journeyed to the United States and travelled extensively across that country before returning to Sydney in 1880. Assuming charge of the salmon hatchery at the spot now known as Wentworth Creek, he remained there for a number of years and afterwards launched upon a contracting career which brought him in close association with the railway and steel plant projects, as well as having been identified with many building jobs here. Veteran Mason He was believed to be the oldest Masonic Past Master in the Province, having been elected Master of St Andrew’s Lodge, this city, in 1887. In military circles of long ago, he was a well known figure, and was one of the original officers of the 17th Field Battery, joining the unit in 1880 and held the rank of Lieutenant. Retiring from the contracting business long past the turn of the present century, he entered the employ of the steel company and was with the mechanical department for many years. His death on Saturday afternoon followed a protracted period of ill health, having suffered a stroke five years ago and he was confined to his bed practically ever since. Death Mourned A gentleman of the old school, a fine type of citizen, kindly, and gracious, he was widely known throughout Cape Breton, and his passing will be learned with profound regret and will be universally mourned. In addition to his widow, he is survived by four daughter, Irene, bookkeeper at Oak Hall; Annie, Principal of Central School; Mrs D J Williams (Catherine); Mrs John Livingstone (Jessie), both in Sydney; three sons, Alexander of Bethlehem, California; Charles, in New York, and John in Sydney. Also one sister, Mrs Mary MacDonald, residing in California. Funeral Tuesday The funeral will take place on Tuesday afternoon from the family residence 34 Highland street.

Large Cortege The funeral was held from his late residence, 34 Highland street, (continued on page ten) after private service was held for the family, and the long procession moved on to the Sydney Presbyterian church where the pastor Rev Dr Maxwell MacOdrum conducted public service. The auditorium of the edifice was filled to capacity and favorite hymns of the deceased sung by the choir were, “Lead Kindly Light,” “The Lord Is My Shepherd” and soloist Yorke Shaver was heard in a feeling rendition of “The Stranger of Galilee.” At Graveside From the church, the cortege proceeded to Hardwood Hill cemetery where burial was made, service at the graveside being in charge of Dr. MacOdrum, and was followed by the committal service of the Masonic Order - the deceased having been a member of St Andrew’s Lodge and was named Master in 1887. He was believed to have been the oldest Past Master in the Province. J W Kennedy, Past Master, recited the Masonic committal ritual, and acted as pall bearers along with the following Past Masters of the lodge, Dr J K MacLeod, John C MacKay, M R Chappell, H M Mersereau and Neil MacLellan.

Farr Sandra (MacAdam) Farr CBP 8/14/2013
Sandra (MacAdam) Farr
Born: April 12th, 1952
Passed on: August 12th, 2013
On Monday, Aug. 12, 2013, we lost our sister, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, Sandra. She succumbed to a cancer that ravaged her body but not her soul. To her last breath, she was determined to live and die the way she wanted.
Sandra was born April 12, 1952, to the late Sarah (Wrathall) and Francis MacAdam. She was the second child in a brood of seven. She was a proud Mira Roader and even prouder Cape Bretoner. Her career was spent working at the Sterile Supplies Unit (SPD) at Sydney City Hospital and retiring from New Waterford Hospital in 2010. There wasn’t a knitting pattern that could stump her or a pattern that she couldn’t create. The last few years, travel was her passion and prepping for trips kept her focused and determined. We always said “she’s one tough nugget”. Our hearts are broken. She will be sadly missed, especially her unique sense of humour.
Left behind are her sons, Allen (Kim) and Jason Brace; daughter, Pamela; grandchildren, Bianca, Kayla, Evan, Jayden and Jillian and great-grandchild, Joey; sisters, Frances (Bo) Leterte, Susan (Al) Swartz, Helen (Clem) MacPhee, Cheryl (Billy) Cann; brothers, Gordon (Donna) MacAdam, Carl (Su) MacAdam; many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by her husband, Roland Farr and her parents.
A special thank you to Jessie Butts, RN, at the medical day clinic in Glace Bay Hospital. Susan and Tracey at Dr. Cohen’s office, Dr. R. Cohen, Dr. D. MacDonald, Halifax, Palliative Care, VON, and cancer clinics in Sydney and Halifax.
Cremation has taken place (and yes, aiming to use your crock pot Sandra!).
Sandra has requested, as her final resting place, her parents’ gravesite, with only her immediate family in attendance. There will be a gathering held at the SW Chant & Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney today (Wednesday) from 7-9 p.m.
No flowers please. Donations to Palliative Care Cape Breton or Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.

Farrell Eileen Mary Farrell Cape Breton Post 9/21/2009
Eileen Mary Farrell, Whitney Pier

Born in 28/10/1928 at Bay du Nord , Newfoundland , Canada

Surrounded by her loving family, Mom passed away peacefully Sunday, Sept. 20, 2009, at the Palliative Care Unit, Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
She was born in Bay du Nord, N.L., to ‘Teacher’ Tom and Frances (Lundrigan) on Oct. 28, 1928. She moved to Sydney in 1952 where she and her husband Lawrence ‘Red’ raised their seven children.
Surviving are her children, Marguerite (late John) Pittman, Bernie (Margo), David (Margie), Lillian (Bruce) Andrews, Larry (Kim) and Maurice ‘Moe’. Also by daughter-in-law, Janice. ‘Nan’ was cherished by her 12 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
She was anxiously awaiting the birth of her new great-grandson in North Carolina and her great-granddaughter in Ontario.
She is survived by her sisters, Genevieve, Patricia (Pat) Hickey, Alice (late Fred) Hickey, brothers, Kevin (Late Lill) and Alphonsus (Viola), sisters-in-law, Teresa Farrell and Pearl Farrell.
Mom was predeceased by her husband, Lawrence, son, Adrian ‘Sam’ in 2008, brothers, Pat, Dave and Gerald.
Our community has truly lost an icon. Eileen will be remembered for her endless kindness to anyone she met, as her front door had an ‘open door’ policy. It was known that Sunday dinners could feed from two to 10 persons easily. Friday mornings meant making ‘home-made’ bread and date squares, and you could count on going home with a care package of goodies after your visit. Her religious affirmations started many years ago with ‘starching ‘ altar clothing, and her proudest moments were listening to Moe reading at Saturday evening mass.
Mom’s regular personal treats consisted of Pepsi pop, Double Bubble gum, playing Wednesday night bingo on TV and chocolate treats. Lady, the family dog, was her daily companion.

Farrell Michael Farrell CBP 6/27/2012
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather and friend, Michael Joseph Farrell. Mike passed away on Monday, June 25, 2012, surrounded by his family in the palliative care unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney. Mike was born on Feb. 11, 1925 to Sarah ‘Sadie’ MacDonald and John Joseph Farrell. He was the oldest of 12 children, five boys and seven girls. Mike served overseas with the North Nova Scotia Highlanders. He landed in England then fought across France and Belgium into Germany. In March of 1945, Mike was shot in the back of the head by a snipers bullet. His fellow soldier loaded him in a wheelbarrow and got him to the nearest aid station. He was patched up and sent to England where he woke six weeks later unable to walk, read or write. Doctors told him he was partially paralyzed and may never regain the use of his legs but with sheer determination and a healthy stubbornness, he endured the pain and forced his body to relearn all it had lost. Mike remained partially paralyzed on the right side of his body but he never let that stop him from doing anything. After a year of recovery at home in Cape Breton, Mike returned to work in Ontario. It was there he met his late wife, Kathleen Theresa Blake, they married in 1952. In 1954 they moved back to Cape Breton where they raised their eight sons and two daughters. In 1956 Mike was one of the 12 founding members of the East Bay Legion Branch 151. He worked as a bartender there off and on from 1957 - 1989. Mike served the legion in many roles including Sgt. of Arms, vice-president, president and in his more recent position as service officer. Mike loved all his positions in the legion, but the role of service officer gave him great satisfaction. Mike believed there was no greater honour than being able to help his fellow veterans and their families. He took great pride in serving others. Mike was recognized for his many accomplishments in the legion. He received The Life Membership, The Meritorious Service Medal and the Palm Leaf, which is the highest accolade the legion grants. Mike recently was honoured by the legion with his 55 year pin, a day he greatly cherished. Throughout his life, Mike has overcome obstacles with strength and determination. This rings true even in sight of his recent battle with illness in these last months, which he faced with grace and an immeasurable amount of strength. His boisterous voice and twinkling blue eyes will be remembered fondly and lovingly by all who met him. His sense of humour, never ending stories and advice will be missed greatly by his friends and family. Mike’s family has lost a prominent figure. His presence is irreplaceable, but his memory is a cherished gift that his family will continue to carry with them. Mike was known as a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather and friend, but for all who knew him he was also a hero. The Second World War veteran who survived against all odds to return home, raise a family and inspire a community. Mike’s zest for life gives us all something to aspire to. At his time of rest, it is we who will carry his memory into the dawn of another day. Mike is survived by his 10 children, Michael (Cathy), Toronto; Ed, Sydney Forks; David (Heather), Sydney; Pat (Cathy), Sydney Forks; Lawrence (Jane), Marion Bridge; Greg (Joanne), Halifax; Diane (John) MacKinnon, Sydney Forks; Kevin (Leslie), Sydney Forks; Doug (Noreen), Sydney River; Judy (Bruce) Pirnie, Winnipeg. Grandchildren, Billy, Gail, Amanda, Marcia, Michael, Bria, Faith, Blake, Daniel, Katarzyna; great-grandchildren, Willis, Jodiee, Trista, Sarah; great-great-grandson, Pierce. Siblings, Mary Blake , Port Elgin; Rita Briand, Barrie; Effie (Bobby) Chipman, Sydney Forks; Sally (Charles) Sampson, Sydney Forks; Joseph (Carol), Toronto and by his loving longtime companion, Jenny MacNamara.

Farrell Robert 'Drake' Farrell Cape Breton Post 12/26/2009
Robert 'Drake' Farrell, Port Caledonia

The world lost a shining light on December 21, 2009, as a result of a catastrophic car collision. Our precious baby boy was taken far too soon. We know he is at peace with his loved ones waiting for him in Heaven.
Drake will be forever missed by his parents, Lisa Margaret Durnford, Robert Scott (wife Paula) Farrell; sister, Darian Elizabeth Farrell, all of Ontario; maternal grandparents, Elizabeth (Nee Betty Acker) and Jabez Durnford, Port Caledonia; paternal grandmother, Barbara (Gould) Farrell, Auntie Carolyn (YoYo) Durnford, Uncle Darin and cousins, Ravin and Kendull; Uncle Jim and Aunt Marion Farrell; cousins, Brendon and Gregory, all of Ontario; as well as numerous great-aunts, great-uncles and cousins.
Drake was a friend to all who knew him. He will be missed by so many people, including girlfriend, Larissa Lauzon and best friends, Taylor Eisses and Dillon Letemplier.
Drake was predeceased by paternal grandfather George James Farrell.
Drake was born and raised for most of his young years in Ontario (Scarborough, Whitby, and Angus). He was a pleasant, intent boy who followed his dad around with a toy hammer trying to mimic the excellent craftsmanship. He was his mother’s ‘little man’ and to his Nana and Pop he was the moon and the stars.
Drake and his sister Darian were very close and would taunt each other whenever they had the opportunity. Drake and his grandparents moved to Cape Breton during his teenage years. Whenever he had the chance he would say how much he loved living there. His love of Lego and video games followed him into his young adulthood. Drake was also a talented sketch artist thanks to time spent with his “Uncle Bear”. He enjoyed the outdoors and spending time with his great uncle in rural Cape Breton. He was a student at Memorial High School and worked at Stream during the summer of 2009. He loved hanging out with his friends.
To all who have been blessed with knowing Drake he was a funny, happy prankster who loved to joke and make others laugh. His confident, pleasant demeanor immediately put others around him at ease. On his Facebook page Drake had written a line that defined him best, “I know I am saying too much but I am the happiest guy in the world”.
Family Flowers only please. A donation to any of Drake’s favorite causes, some of which included, Glace Bay Food Bank or Harvest House, Glace Bay, may be made in his memory.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2009 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. The funeral service, officiated by Rev. Vernon Reid and accompanied by organist, John Howie will take place Wednesday at 2 p.m. in St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Port Caledonia. Cremation to follow with interment in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Maple Avenue, Glace Bay at a later date.
Following the service, all are invited to join the family for a reception in the church hall, directly below the church.

Fennell Helen Fennell CBP 4/18/2011
Helen Fennell

Born In: Little Lorraine, Nova Scotia, Canada Born On: 01/08/1915

Passed Away In: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada Passed Away On: 17/04/2011

Our dear mother passed away Sunday, April 17, 2011, in Sydney, N.S. Helen was the last surviving offspring of Edward and Winifred Troke of Little Lorraine. She was predeceased by husband, Mike and daughter, Leona (MacDonald). She is survived by nine children, Ron and Mike, Sydney, Constance Hope, New York, Sheila, Margaret and Theresa, Toronto, Mary McCloskey, Vermont, Joyce Avent, Minnesota, and Tom, Newfoundland and Labrador. She also leaves 14 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Helen arrived prematurely Aug. 1, 1915. Her incubator was fashioned from a shoe box placed on a warm oven door by a prayerful country doctor. Childhood was shared with seven siblings in a hard scrabble fishing village where an ingrained work ethic and a zest for life predominated. Brothers Jack and Tom Troke taught her to dance at the local parish hall and to enjoy their hard-earned bounty at the Main-a-dieu lobster suppers - two of her lifelong pleasures. She prevailed through 50 plus years of marriage, and motherhood of her large family despite limited resources. She baked from scratch, sewed her children's clothing without patterns and coaxed robust gardens from ungenerous soil. Helen was a dynamo who danced to Lefty Frizzle, sang along with the Clancy Brothers, patronized the Holy Redeemer bingo games and joyfully chanced two dollar wagers at the Sydney race track. She regaled her family with stories of her early years. In mid life, she enjoyed a twenty five-year career at Zellers and forged many lasting friendships. She relished vacation trips to visit her now far flung offspring. Their return visits to her home were met with marathon baking sprees. Abetted by her daughter, she now embraced the role of fashionista. From her deck, built by her son Tom, she savored her books, tea and much loved garden. In her retirement years she explored Cape Breton's restaurants with her side-kick Carol. She followed sports with son Ron, cheering from Tom Henke and Al MacInnis, but her heart belonged to Gordie Howe. She delighted us in her final years with her quick wit and sassy observations. Her favourite songs were now sung (on request) by son Mike. Her surviving children remain grateful for the gifts she imparted a passion for reading and learning, top notch seamstress skills, a tiller's touch, a solid work ethic and especially a family folk lore second to none. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel. Online condolences may be made at twcurry.com.

Helen 'Leona' Fennell (MacDonald), Edmonton

Our dear sister Leona passed away on September 14, 2009 in Edmonton, Alta.
We fondly remember Leona as the long ago playground tomboy and staunch defender of our clan, the teenage belle of the ball, a fiercely loyal mother, an accomplished school teacher and finally as Grandma Nonnie, whose penchant for mischief and unique brand of wit and wisdom delighted her nieces, nephews and grandchildren.
Leona lived ardently and she brought the fun. When she stumbled, she rose gallantly. She met her final days with grace and dignity and, true to form, she left us smiling.
We are diminished by her passing and will carry her in our hearts (smiling, of course).
God speed - from siblings Ron, Connie, Sheila, Margaret, Mike, Mary, Theresa, Joyce and Tom and mother, Helen (Troke) Fennell.

Predeceased by his mother, Jane, Ferg was the eldest child of Kenneth Ferguson; brother to Stewart (Randi), Debbie (Pat), and Ken (Lori); and uncle to Kenzie, Ellian, Janet, Patrick, Emma, William and Matthew.

(1978) both from Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S. Ferg moved to Calgary after graduation to begin his legal career. He practised at Gowlings (formerly Code Hunter) for most of his career.

In recognition of these attributes and his contribution to his profession, Ferg was appointed as Queen's Counsel. He had a great passion for sports, but hockey was always his favourite. Ferg was also an avid history buff and never saw a museum he could pass by.

Ferguson Julian A Ferguson Sydney Post Record p 2 11/9/1935 R. Fraser Glace Bay, Nov 8 - not for some time has a death here caused such universal sorrow as was to be heard on all sides this afternoon when word quickly circulated that Julian A Ferguson, District Master Mechanic for the Dominion Coal Company, had died suddenly at his home at New Aberdeen. Taken ill with a slight chest congestion last Sunday, Mr Ferguson received medical attention and remained at home until this morning, when he arose and went to the central power plant at No. 3 colliery, going there about nine o'clock and remaining until about two in the afternoon, when he returned home, stating he was not feeling quite fit and stated he was going to lie down for a little while. After lying down only a few minutes, he was seized with a heart attack, passing away within a few minutes and before medical assistance could reach him. Mr Ferguson was one of the best known officials of the Dominion Coal Company and of him it could be truly said that not in the employ of the company could be found a more diligent, conscientious and trustworthy official. And this was shown by the high respect he was held in by the company and the fine spirit of faithful cooperation that was ever noted to exist between Mr Ferguson and the men over whom he had supervision. A very active man, he was of the type that believed that anything no matter how important, that was worth doing was worth doing well. He was an exceptionally talented mechanic and much of the mechanical equipment of the coal company was improved on by his keen knowledge of mechanics and steam engineering. Mr Ferguson was born at Mira, 72 years ago, a son of Mr and Mrs Angus R Ferguson, the latter being Margaret Jane McAskill before her marriage. While still an infant his parents moved to Cow Bay in the Port Morien district. Attending school at Cow Bay, Mr Ferguson when still in his early teens, learned his apprenticeship in the machine ship of the Archibald Company, which were then carrying on the mining operations in the Port Morien districts. Studious and ambitious, Mr Ferguson soon was one of the most skilled mechanics and steam engineers in the employ of the Archibald firm and when the Whitney Interests reorganized the coal industry here and formed the Dominion Coal Company, Mr Ferguson was induced by the new company to leave Port Morien and take over the important position of Chief Colliery Engineer at Caledonia colliery, then the most important producing colliery in the Cape Breton coal fields. Thirty years ago, with the opening of Nos. 2 and 9 collieries, Mr Ferguson was further promoted by being appointed chief colliery engineer in charge of Nos. 2, 9 and 7, the last named being the Hub colliery, now closed down. Twelve years ago, his worth to the company he served so well was further recognized, when he was promoted to the very important post of district master in charge for the collieries of the Dominion Coal Company, and this position he filled truly and well up to within an hour of his death. He married on September 27th 188[2 or 3?] Miss Bessie Carmichael, a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Charles Carmichael, May street, and she predeceased him, passing away November 27th, 1928. He leaves to mourn a kindly, lovable and devoted father, seven children, to whom the sympathy of the community goes in their sad bereavement. The surviving children are: Mrs P e Morrison and Charles in Arlington Heights, Mass.; Mrs D Owen, in Detroit; Mrs Charles Arthur, in Prince Edward Island; Mrs Malcolm McLeod, Glace Bay; Angus R E, an official of the Electric Light department of the town of Glace Bay and Archibald M, at home, at New Aberdeen. Two sisters, Mrs L McVicar, Sydney and Mrs Marlon McRury, North Sydney, also survive. In religion, Mr Ferguson was always a devout Presbyterian and was for a long period of years an Elder of St Paul's Presbyterian church and he took the same careful and attentive interest in the affairs of his church that was characteristic of his life work. he was also a valued member of McDougall L.O.L. at New Aberdeen and in politics always was a staunch follower and in his younger years, a willing worker for the Liberal party. Mr Ferguson was, in the days when horse racing flourished here, an active and keen supporter of the sport of kings. He knew a good horse and admired one and invariably drove one. Although an engineer, whose ability was known far beyond the confines of the county in which he was born, Mr Ferguson never chose to forsake his horse for a car and he could be seen traveling from colliery to colliery, driving behind a fast stepping roadster, his last one being the former race horse Tiny Aubrey. A kindly man, with always a good thought for his neighbor uppermost in his mind, Mr Ferguson was known better than any other man associated with the mining and his sudden and unexpected passing will be learned with profound sorrow all over the Cape Breton coal fields where he was as well known and so highly respected and esteemed. Although often urged to seek political honors in the civic and other fields, Mr Ferguson, however, refused to forsake his life work.

Ferguson Mamie Ferguson Sydney Post Record 5/29/1940 Donald Snow Source This community was greatly shocked at the sudden and unexpected passing of Mrs. William M.

Before her marriage, Mrs. Ferguson was employed for a time with the Glace Bay Gazette and later in the office of the Dominion Steel and Coal Corporation. Throughout her life she had been an earnest welfare worker in this community particularly in church and temperance circles. She had two great life objectives, one that the youth might be protected from the dangers of the liquor traffic, the other that the gospel should be carried through the Missionary Societies to the utmost parts of the earth To her there were no idle dreams for even while strength was failing her, she accepted offices which carried with them heavy duties performed with care and thoroughness so characteristic of her life. All who have been associated with her in these special lines of work now realize that a great leader has been taken from them. She was greatly interested in Mission Band work where she instilled into the children that missionary zeal that possessed her to such a remarkable degree.

Finlayson Pte. Walter Finlayson The Eastern Chronicle, New Glasgow, N.S. 9/22/1942 Carolyn Wallace VERDICT OF ACCIDENTAL DEATH Coroner's Jury Enquiring Into The Death of Pte. Walter Finlayson of Florence, C.B. In the Town Council Chamber yesterday a jury under Coroner Dr.W.H. Robbins, heard evidence and filed a verdict of accidental death exonerating the driver of a truck J. Brophy of Antigonish, of all blame. Crown Prosecutor E.M. Macdonald conducted the inquiry and the foreman of the jury was Mr. Harry Murray. Evidence was given by several witnesses. Dr. Mandel of the Military Hospital at Parkdale examined the body at Aberdeen Hospital and described the injuries that caused death. Edward and Alex Bigney of Westville Road described seeing the soldier fall from the truck and being taken away to the Hospital. Don F. Fraser told of driving from Pictou to New Glasgow and taking the injured man in his car to Aberdeen Hospital. He thought he was living when picked up but he was dead when he reached the Hospital. The nurse there felt for his pulse but could not find any. Mr. Fraser notified the R.C.M.P. of the accident and returned with them to the Hospital. He did not see the other soldiers or the truck driver after leaving the scene of the accident with the injured man in the back seat. A Naval rating from Pictou and Hugh Dunbar were with him when he picked up Finlayson. He said the road was very rough at that particular place. John Brophy of Antigonish told of driving the truck from Truro and first picking up a soldier who rode in the cab with him and then four soldiers who got in the body of the truck. He asked them to sit down. He drove about 35 miles an hour. At the scene of the accident he heard a cry and stopped to find that one of the soldiers had fallen off. He saw him taken away in a car that came to the scene. He brought the three soldiers to New Glasgow and let them out at the Hospital, and kept right on home to Antigonish. He did not know that the man had died until told by the R.C.M.P. on Saturday two days after the accident. The three companions of the late Walter Finlayson then gave evidence. They were Wm. Reardon of Florence, J.Walsh of Sydney Mines and J.Steele of Sydney Mines. They were absent from Halifax without leave and were hitch-hiking their way home to Cape Breton being members of the Cape Breton Highlanders. They described their position in the truck and how Finlayson fell out. When they heard at the Hospital that he was dead they kept right on as they did not have a pass to be away from Halifax. The three soldiers at the inquest were in charge of the military provost. The jury after deliberation found a verdict that Walter Finlayson came to his death because of an accident and exonerated Brophy, the driver of the truck of all blame.

Alfred Finney
Born In: Sydney Mines
Born: October 28th, 1937
Passed on: January 17th, 2013
Alfred George Finney passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, at the An Cala palliative care unit, Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, on Jan. 17, 2013, at the age of 75.
Born in Sydney Mines on Oct. 28, 1937, he was the son of the late George and Sarah (Fisher) Finney.
Alfie is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Patricia ‘Patsy’ (Young); sons, Dale, Paul (Sherry), Jason (Tanya), Kyle (Robert) and daughters, Rhonda (Paul) Andrea, and Coralee (Brian) Jobes; brother, Billy (Cathy) and sister, Beatrice Mulley. Alfie will be sadly missed by grandchildren, Meghan, Kori, Vincent, Sam, Ethan, Liam and Callie and several nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by brother, Jimmy and granddaughter, Miranda, in infancy.
Those that knew Alfie will easily remember his quick smile, and outgoing, friendly personality. He greeted everyone with a cheerful grin and always had time to stop for a chat.
Self-employed for 40 years, Alfie operated Finney’s Oil Burner Service and was proud to offer excellent service to the Northside community. He could be counted on to go out of his way in the worst weather to “get the heat on” for any of his loyal customers. Many of his long-time customers became good friends over the years.
While raising their six children, Alfie and Patsy enjoyed annual summer vacations to Margaree, camping road trips to P.E.I., fishing at Alder Point wharf and trips to Watson’s Siding beach and the cabin in Boisdale. These times are special memories for Patsy and the kids.
Alfie also enjoyed a gathering and could often be found playing either guitar or piano. He was a talented musician, playing with friends in earlier years and his kids later on. The family loved to hear him play a tune on the 12-string guitar given to him by Patsy when they first started to date.
In later years, Alfie liked to spend time doing yard work, trying his luck at the casino, going to the gym, or checking in on his family. Da’s nightly phone calls were like clockwork; he couldn’t rest until he knew everyone was OK, regardless if they were just next door or elsewhere in the country. His grandkids were also very special to him and he was happiest when his family was all around him. He was well loved and he will be deeply missed.
A funeral service will be celebrated on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 3 p.m. with Rev. Stacey Lemoine officiating, taking place at Trinity Anglican Church, Sydney Mines. Interment at a later date.
Funeral arrangEments have been entrusted to the care and direction of Francis Funeral Home, Sydney Mines.
Donations can be made in Alf’s memory to the An Cala palliative care unit, Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

Fitzgerald Catherine 'Kaye' (Doyle) Fitzgerald CBP 7/10/2012
Kaye Fitzgerald passed away peacefully at the Cove Guest Home in Sydney, on July 9, at the age of 90, after a long struggle with Alzheimer's. She was the youngest of 10 children of Harold (1883-1958) and Barbara (Merchant) Doyle (1881-1923). She lived her entire life in Sydney. Kaye graduated from Holy Angels High School the day Canada declared war on Germany in 1939. She then attended the Cape Breton Business College. Kaye enjoyed working at the Bank of Montreal in Sydney before she was married in 1947, and continued to use her financial management expertise, both at home and at various part-time jobs over the years. Kaye first met her husband Pat at the bank when he dropped by as a customer and they exchanged a few friendly words. They met again the next day, by chance, while skating at the old Sydney Forum and their year long courtship involved mostly skating and long walks. She was a long time active member of St. Theresa's Parish Catholic Women's League (CWL). She was known and appreciated for her many skills, including quilting, needlepoint, sewing, and fabulous baking. She was active in family genealogy research, writing letters far and wide to question and verify family history and connections. She will be sadly missed by her husband of 65 years, Ralph Patrick ‘Pat’ Fitzgerald, still living in the family home on Cabot Street; her daughter, Dorothy (Andy Willan), Hamilton; sons, Art, St. Louis, Owen (Joyce), Sydney, and Frank (Cathy), Newmarket, Ont. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, Ryan and Kevin Fitzgerald, St. Louis, Meagan and Nick Willan, Hamilton, Bradley and Gregory Fitzgerald, Newmarket, Ont., Sheri Fitzgerald-Neal, Sydney, Scott Fitzgerald, Toronto, Lori (Lahey), Sydney, Leanne Fitzgerald, Halifax and John Patrick Fitzgerald, Sydney. Kaye is also survived by four great-grandchildren, Brittney, Kyler, Liam and Sophie. Kaye was predeceased by her son, Jack in 1979; sisters, Margaret Foley, Eveleen Cullen, Barbara Gough and Mary in childhood (1922) and brothers, Harry, Joe, Frank, Jim and Terry Doyle.

Fitzgerald Florence Pauline Fitzgerald CBP 5/16/2011
Florence Pauline Fitzgerald, 92, of Sydney peacefully made her journey to be with God surrounded by her loving family Saturday May 14, 2011, at Cape Breton Regional Hospital following a brief illness. She was the daughter of late John James and Mary (Kyte) MacDonald. She was a lifelong resident of the Sydney area. Born in Birch Grove, she moved as a young child to Grand Lake Road area attending Lakevale School. Following school, she continued to live at home for a couple of years caring for her mother. She married her husband Mike in 1946 and soon became a busy stay-at-home mother with eight children — five girls and three boys. She was very involved in her children’s activities and lives. She taught Brownies and was one of the founding members of St. Theresa’s parish CWL. She was a lifelong supporter of Irish heritage and culture in Cape Breton and was an active member of the Irish Benevolent Society. Flora and Mike were instrumental in the establishment of what was known as the Fitzgerald School of Irish Dancing. One of Flora’s biggest contributions to the Irish was spending countless hours sewing shamrocks on the performance dresses and she organized the Irish displays and prepared her famous Irish Soda Bread and Fish Cakes for everyone to enjoy. She was a fun, humorous individual who loved attending gatherings with family and friends. She loved to tell jokes and always wanted to hear new ones so she could add them to her repertoire. Her zest for life was evident in everything she did — she won many trophies and awards over the years playing darts and bowling. She enjoyed playing checkers with 16 grandchildren and to the end she always made sure she got her exercise physically and mentally. She was dearly loved and treasured. She touched the lives of all who knew her and she will be very sadly missed and fondly remembered by everyone. She is survived by her husband Mike Fitzgerald of 64 years; her children and grandchildren, Kevin (Shirla) Toronto, Michael (Jackie), Sean, David and Kyle-Dartmouth, Mary Lou-Danna, Becky, Chad, London, Ont., Kathie (Steve), Melanie, Jeffrey, Stephanie, Dartmouth, Theresa (Andy), Ashley, Jenna, Amy, Calgary, Alta., Renie-Lyndsey, Craig, Sydney, Terry (Tracey), Lauren, Halifax, Elaine (Lawrence), Victoria, Dartmouth. Mom is also survived by Blanche MacDonald, sister-in-law and lifelong friend. She was predeceased by her sisters, Ellen and Catherine, and brothers, Charlie, George, John and Edward. The late Flora Fitzgerald will be resting at the T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, today (Monday, May 16) from 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday, May 17 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral mass will be celebrated 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 18, at St. Theresa’s Church, Sydney, with Fr.

Fitzgerald Matthew Gerald Fitzgerald CBP 5/16/2012
Our lives were changed forever on Saturday, May 12, 2012, when Matthew Gerard Fitzgerald, 15, our beloved son, brother, grandson and nephew passed away as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Our family mourns this young man whose life was cut tragically short and whose dreams will never materialize. Born in Halifax, Matthew was the son of Natalie Paris (Jim) and Brian Fitzgerald (Jean Samuel). A Grade 10 student at Sydney Academy, Matthews’ talents and abilities were endless. He could build and fix just about anything and loved tinkering with old cars. Matthew was often the family member called on to assemble anything with many parts and complex instructions as he so enjoyed the satisfaction of the finished product. Matthew played a variety of sports and pursued many outdoor activities spending countless hours skiing and snowboarding at Ben Eoin then shifting to skateboarding when the weather turned warm. He played hockey since he was five, most recently with the Sydney Steelers, dominating on defence given his ability and physical strength. Matthew enjoyed hitting the trails with his dirt bike and ATV and then jumping in the pool for a swim. Matthew made friends easily. Nicknamed ‘Fitz’ by those closest to him he had a genuine kindness that radiated and a little smirk that endeared him to others. His special friend Kaitlin Colbourne was one of the people who made Matthew the happiest. Despite his stature he was the baby in the family and brought much joy to those around them. Like most 15-year olds he tested his parents regularly but was just as quick to leave a note to his Mom Natalie telling her how much she meant to him. From the moment Matthew was born, she was his greatest champion and advocate and will sadly miss their nightly chats. Brian was a devoted Dad and was always on the sidelines cheering for Matthew in whatever was his latest pursuit. He will miss their hockey road trips and everyday companionship. For his siblings, Julianne and Brad, and their companions, Jeff MacLeod and Kayla Yhard, the loss of their brother will leave a tremendous void. That little pain in their side growing up helped create some incredible memories over the years. Matthew is survived by his loving mother, Natalie (Jim) and dad, Brian (Jean); sister, Julianne; brother, Brad; stepsister, Whitney Paris; stepbrother, Christopher Paris; grandmother, Alice Almond; aunts and uncles, Charlene MacKinnon (Kevin), Deanna Gallaway (Dave), Allison Donovan (Blair), Michael Almond (Krista), Darlene MacKinnon (Steven), John Brent Fitzgerald (Lindsay); many cousins and a whole lot of friends. He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Michael Gerard Almond and paternal grandparents, Jack and Delores Fitzgerald. Visitation for Matthew will be at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel on Wednesday, May 16 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. with a funeral mass Thursday, May 17 at 10 a.m. at St. Theresa’s Church, Sydney, with Fr. Jim Oliver officiating. A reception will follow the funeral service at Ashby Legion. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Loaves and Fishes.

Fitzroy John Edmund Fitzroy Barrington Sydney Post Record p 8 12/1/1941 R. Fraser Today the Cape Breton sport world mourns the death of one of its best known figures of the last 30 years, "Jack" Barrington of Sydney Mines. With his chief love in the sport world having been yachting, a sport in which he took an active part for over 40 years, Jack known to many throughout the Maritimes as "the Commodore" also was very prominent in numerous other branches of sport. Personally the writer knows of many kindnesses which Jack did in the interest of sport teams here. These in connection with the North Sydney track and field team of some eight years ago which was most prominent in Island circles. Jack, about four years ago, was President of the Northside Hockey Club, which sponsored the Monarchs team in the C.B.H.L. He was also a former President of the well known local Cape Breton Curling Club. However, it was in yachting circles that he was best known and as it was so aptly put by one sportsman, "no such meet was complete without the presence of 'Commodore' Jack Barrington. DEATH OF JACK BARRINGTON IS MOURNED North Sydney, Dec 1 - The political world and sport world of Cape Breton lost one of its best known figure on Saturday in the death of John Edmund Fitzroy Barrington, 58, who died at the family residence at Barrington Park, Sydney Mines. Known to thousands of friends throughout the Maritimes as "Jack Barrington", the deceased passed away at 11:30 o'clock Saturday morning following an illness of almost two years. After suffering a slight stroke while in Halifax in August 1940, he also suffered a number of other ailments since then and had been confined to his home for the past year and a half. Outstanding Figure. One of the outstanding figures in the Conservative party, and one of its best workers during the last 30 years, the late Mr Barrington was equally noted in the athletic world. In addition to his career along these lines, he was also prominent in the activities of the Cape Breton Farmers' Association and was a member of a committee from this organization which had pressed for and played an important part in the initial efforts to secure the National Highland Park for Victoria County. Born at Barrington Park, the Barrington family's homestead location since 1825, Jack was the son of the late Sir Yorke Lindsay Walker Barrington and Lady Matilda Barrington. He was the youngest member of that family. The deceased's grandfather, the late Charles Barrington, who was a native of Ireland, was an intimate friend of th famous Duke of Wellington and holding the rank of Captain in His Majesty's 60th Rifles was in command at Sydney when that city was a military station. During his active life, Mr Barrington had been associated with more organizations than probably any other man in the Northside district in the past 50 years. One of the province's best known yachting figures he had been actively connected with this form of sport for 43 years. Headed Organization. Following is a list of the organizations which he had headed as President: North Sydney Conservative Association; Cape Breton Conservative Association; Cape Breton Farmer's Association; Cape Breton County Exhibition Commission; Cape Breton Curling Club; North Sydney Board of Trade; Associated Boards of Trade in Cape Breton; President of the Northside Hockey Club which sponsored the Monarchs entry in the Island league several years ago. First Commodore of the Northern Yacht Club formed here in 1923 he, some years ago was made Honorary Commodore of the club for life. He had held numerous Government positions, with his political work being one of the leading parts of his lifetime's career. During the first World War he was a member of the Pilotage Commission for Sydney Harbor. For a lengthy period in later years he had been in charge of the coaling of boats at this port, with his work along these lines for the Federal government having been greatly praised for "the efficient manner in which he had carried out his duties." For many years he had also been a Forest Ranger, this being the last position he had held prior to his death. The deceased had attended numerous conventions of the various organizations with which he had been connected when these were held at Halifax and other centers. Formed Club. In earlier years Jack formed a trap shooting club, which was located at Barrington Park, and had also played lacrosse on a field for this sport at the same place. One of the first of a number of hockey teams which he managed during his connection in this capacity with sports, was the local St Joseph's team. After winning the Cape Breton championship in 1910, this team were beaten out in the Maritime finals by the Charlottetown Victorias in a playoff series which took place at New Glasgow. A man who had done countless deeds of good in innumerable ways during his lifetime and a person who always loaned a hand to less fortunate people, his spirit of kindness and hospitality will long be remembered. Mr Barrington in addition to the many other forms of work he had attended to, had operated a large farm on his family's property and also conducted a florist business on a small scale. The deceased was a member of the Provincial Executive of the Conservative Association for many years and was on this committee up until the time of his death. A member of Trinity Anglican Church, Sydney Mines, he was a Warden of this Church. The deceased, whose passing was learned of over the week end with deep and sincere regret by a widespread circle of friends and acquaintances, is survived by three sisters, one brother and a number of other relatives. The sisters are: Miss M Y "Bey" Barrington, well known resident of Sydney; Miss Matilda M B Barrington, residing at the homestead at Barrington Park, Sydney Mines; and Mrs W L Chirgwin, Sydney Mines. The brother is Yorke C Barrington, town engineer of Sydney Mines. Miss Mary Chirgwin and Yorke Chirgwin, Sydney Mines, are niece and nephew of the deceased. Mr Barrington;s wife predeceased him by 22 years. Two sisters, the late Sibella Anne Barrington and Harriet Henrietta Barrington, died 11 years ago. Funeral Tuesday. The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon. A service will take place at the home starting at 2:30 o'clock, with interment to take place at Trinity cemetery, Rev G T Spriggs, rector of Trinity Church will officiate. Funeral arrangements will be carried out under the direction of the W J Dooley Funeral Services of North Sydney. The wealth of floral offerings and other tokens of sympathy received by the bereaved family over the week end testified in a small degree to the high esteem in which the late Mr Barrington had been held by his many friends in Cape Breton and elsewhere in Nova Scotia. The bereaved family will have the sincere sympathy of their many friends in their bereavement. Saturday December 6 1941
