Hodder Catherine Arlene (Power) Hodder Cape Breton Post 11/4/2009
Catherine 'Kay' Power, Alder Point

Born at Mill Creek , Nova Scotia , Canada

Catherine Arlene (Power) Hodder, 55, of Alder Point passed away on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2009, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.
Known to those who loved her simply as Kay, she was born in Mill Creek, Point Aconi, to proud parents Daniel ‘Donnie’ Power and Geraldine ‘Gerri’ Devoe. She was delivered by her grandmother (midwife) Anna Devoe. Kay was the first of six children and being the eldest took on the role of caretaker early in life.
She worked at a variety of jobs over the years, motivated in part to provide for her infant son when widowed at the tender age of 18. These included the Humpty Dumpty Factory, Neilson’s Chocolate Factory, The Continental Can Company, and Nickerson’s Fish Plant.
The last 4 1⁄2 years of her life were her most treasured because of being spent with her grandson Elijah, the light of her life.
A devoted mother, grandmother and family member, her family was everything to Kay. A truly unique person; a young woman, but an old soul. Poor of health, but strong of will and determination, Kay was special. Slow to anger, quick to forgive; one to always look for the good in everyone, despite their many flaws. One to offer support when in fact she could have used it herself. One to never complain, despite the multiple reasons she could have. One who never judged or criticized. A kinder, loving person there was not.
Kay is survived by her parents, Daniel and Geraldine Power, Alder Point; her two adoring children, son, Devon (Darren) Power, Sydney, and daughter, Angela Hodder, North Sydney, and her pride and joy, grandson, Elijah. Also left to mourn are her sisters, Jeannie (Tex) Stirling, Alberta, Angel (Joey) Bonar, Millville, Laura (Guy) Power, Little Pond; and her brother, Gordon (Sylvia) Power, Alder Point; and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her brother, Steven Power, husbands, William Cook and Gerald Hodder and brother-in-law, Rickey Carey.
There will be no visitation. The funeral mass to celebrate her life will take place Thursday, Nov. 5, 2009, at 10:30 a.m. in St. Anne’s Church, Alder Point, with Fr. Peter MacLeod officiating. The burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery, Bras d’Or.

Cyril Hoeg

Born In: Alder Point, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Alder Point, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: August 24th, 2012

With heartfelt sadness, we regret to announce the passing of Cyril
Hoeg, 80, of Alder Point, on Friday, Aug. 24, 2012, at home,
surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Alder Point, he was the son of the late Walter and Ruth
(Boutilier) Hoeg.
Devco played a big part in Papa's life. He mined coal for 33 years,
always coming home telling stories about him and the boys, and the
good times they had at work.
Anyone who knew Papa knew there were three things that meant the
world to him: family, work and camping. Every year when May would
arrive, he would spend all week cleaning and shining his baby (1980
Chevy van), getting it ready for the May 24th weekend. Three camping
spots that held a special place in Papa's heart were Corney Brook,
Broad Cove and in his later years, the Highlands.
Papa was a very active man. He could always be found on the Prince
Mine Road, walking 2.5 km, waving to all the truckers as they passed
by. He hauled all his own coal and wood home until he was 79.
Papa is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 60 years, Rose
'Sis' Bonnar; sons, Blair, Ontario, Gary (Colleen), Alder Point, Greg
(Kim), Fort McMurray, Kenny (Gail), Wreck Cove, and Nicky, Alder
Point; daughters, Diane (John) Hall, Ontario, Cathy Timbury, Alder
Point, Christina Sheffield, Sydney Mines, and Tanya (Michael)
O'Toole, Sydney Mines; sister, Marlyn (Adrian) White, Florence;
special nephew, Tommy Clarke; and his little dog, Pebbles; 16
grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his daughter Marlyn,
grandson, Matthew, sisters, Verna (George) Clarke and Eileen,
brothers, Spurgeon (Marguerite), Vincent, nieces, Donna and Darlene,
nephew, Jed, daughter-in-law, May and son-in-law, Jack Sheffield.
Visitation for Cyril Hoeg will be held in the J.M. Jobes Funeral
Home, 635 Main St., Sydney Mines, today (Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012),
from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A celebration of his life will be held on

Hoekstra Susan Marsh (Blanchard) Hoekstra Cape Breton Post 7/30/2009
Susan Hoekstra, Powell River

Born in 16/06/1944 at Halifax , Nova Scotia , Canada

Susan Marsh (Blanchard, MacDonald) Hoekstra, 65, died quietly in the early hours of Wednesday, July 22, 2009, at home in Powell River, BC after a long illness.
Born Susan Marsh Blanchard in Halifax, N.S., June 16, 1944, to Henry Blair Blanchard and Mary Eleanor Marsh, she lived her early years in Truro, NS. Following the death of her father, her mother remarried and the family moved to Cape Breton where she completed her early education, graduating from Sydney Academy as Head Girl in 1962.
Susan continued her education at Mount Allison, Sir George William, Dalhousie and the University of British Columbia. She taught music in the elementary school system for more than 30 years.
Susan’s interest in the arts, and music in particular, was fostered and nourished at home. In 1960 her maternal grandmother, Flora Marsh, made this entry in her diary, “Susan is quite a young lady and will be 16 on Wednesday. I’ve just discovered that she has a very beautiful voice. She asked me to play for her and I was amazed at the sweetness and breadth of her tone and she told me she is anxious to take singing lessons.” Susan studied voice with Mae Cameron in Sydney and, as a young adult, with Bernard Diamant in Montreal.
Her home for the past 35 years was Powell River on the west coast of British Columbia, a city recognized for its international choral festival. Susan sang with the Powell River Chorus and the Malaspina Singers, directed a youth choir and performed in recitals with musical friends. Earlier this year Susan was honoured at the Powell River Festival of the Performing Arts when she was presented with the David Pike Memorial Award for outstanding contributions to the arts.
Susan was a keen reader with a special interest in Canadian literature, loved movies, the theatre and all aspects of the arts. She was an opera buff and travelled regularly to performances in Victoria and Vancouver and eagerly anticipated the next simulcasts from the Met.
Susan is survived by her devoted husband, Nick Hoekstra; loving daughters, Caroline (Jeff Stekman)(grandson Carter James), Powell River, Jennifer (Mike Sandberg), Victoria; her dearest siblings, Stephen (Debbie Corkum), Nancy (Andrew MacInnis) and Nora (George Fraser); her aunt, Mary Blanchard; nephews, Drummond, Peter and Jock Fraser and Simon Corkum; cousins, Pam Marsh, Jane McCarthy, Taylor and Robert Carr, Jonathan and Megan Blanchard; and the family of the late John R. MacDonald.
She was predeceased by her parents and by her stepfather, Gordon ‘Scotchie’ MacDonald, who was a wonderful provider of love and guidance throughout her life.
Susan’s life and the positive way she dealt with her illness was an inspiration to everyone. Her family is deeply saddened by her death; she will be forever cherished, remembered and loved.
A memorial celebration will be held on August 5, 2009, at the Powell River Academy of Music. Condolences may be sent to hoekstra@shaw.ca.
“My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -

Hogan Reverend Andrew Hogan
10/4/2002 Margaret Karrer The death occurred Wednesday, April 10, 2002, of the Reverend Andrew Hogan, priest of the Diocese of Antigonish. Father Hogan died after a long illness at the Halifax Regional Rehabilitation Centre, Cole Harbour. Fr. Hogan was born in Glace Bay, the son of Andrew and Mary (MacNeil) Hogan. He received his early education in Glace Bay, graduating in 1941 from St. Anne’s High School. After working for a year as a coal miner, Fr. Hogan attended St. F.X. University, Antigonish and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree. He entered Holy Heart Seminary for his theological studies and priestly training. He was ordained to the priesthood June 12, 1949 by Archbishop John T. McNally in Halifax. Fr. Hogan was appointed to the staff of St. F.X. University in September following ordination, where he initially taught religion and Latin and coached hockey and football. He is credited with bringing Canadian football to the Antigonish campus. Fr. Hogan was subsequently assigned to the areas of sociology and economics at the University. He did graduate studies in sociology and economics, having Masters degrees in both disciplines. He won - but because of a prior commitment did not accept - a scholarship from St. Louis University for doctoral study in sociology. He later pursued doctoral work in economics at University of British Columbia. When Fr. Hogan returned from St. Louis he was assigned to the Extension Department where he worked in the social and economic fields on issues particular to the industrial area of Cape Breton. He was asked to head up the People’s school which consisted in part of radio and television programs and a labour school which focused principally on local social and economic issues in industrial Cape Breton. In 1973, Fr. Hogan was assigned on loan to St. Mary’s University, Halifax. In 1974, Fr. Hogan was asked to run in the Federal Election for the New Democratic Party. He agreed and entered the election campaign with the same vigor and determination which had characterized every assignment he had accepted. He won and became the first priest elected to the Parliament of Canada. Fr. Hogan was a well-known person locally, nationally and internationally. He was a scholar, activist, sociologist, economist, educator and politician. But above and before all, he was a priest! During his priestly life, Father Hogan never hesitated to accept short-term appointments when his schedule permitted, to fill in on weekends and summers to allow other priests some time off. He ministered on this basis in Baddeck, Antigonish, Mulgrave, Inverness and New Aberdeen. Besides his parents, Fr. Hogan was predeceased by two brothers, John and Aloysius and three sisters, Sadie, Sr. Johanna (Sisters of Charity) and Rita. Fr. Andy is survived by brothers Joe (Mabel), and Steve (Rosella), Glace Bay; and sister, Monica (Phil) Reid, Saint John, N.B. Also many nieces and nephews. Visitation will be 7-9 p.m. today and 2-4 p.m. Friday in Curry’s Funeral Home, 775 Main St., Glace Bay. His remains will be moved to St. Anne’s Church for a vigil Service beginning at 7 p.m. Rev. Donald McGillivray will officiate. Funeral Mass of Resurrection will be concelebrated with Bishop Colin Campbell as the main celebrant 10 a.m. Saturday in St. Anne’s Church.

Jerry Holland, Georges River

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of well known Cape Breton fiddler and composer Jerry Holland, 54, on Thursday, July 16, 2009, at the Northside General Hospital, North Sydney.
From a very young age Jerry established his name as a world class Celtic musician and eventually his compositions found their way into the repertoire of players of all traditions. Jerry was also widely thought of as a generous and continuous inspiration to his vast network of students and friends, at home and all around the world.
Jerry was born in Brockton, Mass., in 1955, the son of the late Jeremiah James Holland II, also a fiddler and Jeanette (Jean) Holland, both Canadian emigrants. In Boston, Jerry was introduced to Cape Breton traditional music through his father’s friendships with Winston Fitzgerald, Angus Chisholm and numerous other old-time Cape Breton fiddlers. Jerry quickly established his distinguished sound and went on to win numerous contests throughout his childhood. By his teens, Jerry immigrated to Cape Breton, where his musicianship and inspiration helped usher in an entire generation of young players. Jerry’s recording career began with his Rounder Records release in 1976 and continued right up until the time of his passing. Jerry also published two volumes of original and traditional fiddle tunes.
Jerry is survived by his son, Jerry Holland Jr., Georges River; his sisters, Ann (Frank Hall) Holland, Brockton, Mass., and Pierrette Godbout Corbiel, Montreal, Que.

And you find a place that you come from
Your wandering is done
And all your dreams of open spaces
You find in your children's faces
One by one
And all the trips you know you missed
And all the lips you never kissed
Cut through you like a knife
And now you see stretched out before thee
Just another story of a life
For more than all the ghosts of glory
She makes up the story
She's the only story
Of our life.

Hollohan James G. 'Jimmy' Hollohan CBP 6/4/2013
James G. 'Jimmy' Hollohan
Born: November 5th, 1952
Passed in: Howie Centre, Canada
Passed on: June 1st, 2013
It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of James ‘Jimmy’ G. Hollohan on Saturday, June 1, 2013.
Jimmy was the eldest son of James B. and Eva (Nichols) Hollohan and big brother to Dawn and Bill (Geraldine) Hollohan.
Born in Toronto, on Nov. 5, 1952, Jimmy was in his 60th year.
He will be profoundly missed by his one true love and wife of 37 years, Janice (Dowie). He was so very proud of their two children, Janel and husband Derrick MacCormick and James and wife Lindsey. Jimmy’s undying spirit will rise again in his grandchildren, Rita, Rory, Calum, Ruby and Eva, all of whom he loved beyond earthly measure. Also surviving are his mother-in-law, Theresa Dowie; sisters-in-law, Rita (Cyril) MacQueen, Annette (Michael) Erickson; and brothers-in-law, Sandy (Paula), Danny (Thelma) Dowie and Lowell Crowe. Also left to mourn are many aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces, relationships he treasured.
Jimmy was predeceased by his father, Jim Hollohan, his father-in-law, Alex Dowie, sister-in-law, Marie Crowe and brother-in-law, Tim Sutherland.
I suspect that they will welcome Jimmy to their tarabish table.
Jimmy was blessed with and nurtured great friendships throughout his life, far too many to mention here. You all know who you are and like us, your pain is great. For those of us who were fortunate to have shared some time with Jimmy, life will never be the same, and joy will be forever tempered by his loss. However, we will find joy because he would have it no other way. Jimmy was one of those rare people who could find his house swept away by a hurricane and be excited about the beautiful foundation left behind and all the wonderful things he was going to do with it. Jimmy’s cup, however empty, was always soon to be replenished.
Jimmy spent more than 30 years working for NSP and did his job with a commitment to always do his best and this commitment could be found in everything he tackled. No job was too big for him, he just broke them down into workable chunks. Whatever needed to be done, he attacked with strength and vigor. Jimmy was his father’s pride and joy and his greatest pupil.
Jimmy loved golf, darts, horseshoes, and anything that moved on land or sea, music and great company. He especially loved summers at the bungalow in Ben Eoin. The common thread for Jimmy was that these activities involved time with family and friends. That is what he treasured the very most. To everything that he did and every person he loved he gave a little piece of his heart. He gave so much of his heart to others, he did not save enough for himself.
Visitation will be held at the S.W. Chant and Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m., Wednesday, June 5, and the funeral mass will be at Our Lady of Fatima Church on Thursday, June 6, at 11 am.

Holmes Mrs Parker Holmes Sydney Post Record p 13 1/18/1940 R. Fraser WELL KNOWN WOMAN DIES Mrs Parker Holmes Dies In Glace Bay After Lengthy Illness Glace Bay, Jan 17 - A wide circle of relatives and other friends will learn with deep regret of the death at noon today of Mrs Parker Holmes, one of Glace Bay’s most estimable ladies. Stricken two years ago with an internal malady, Mrs Holmes some time ago underwent a critical operation in the Victoria General hospital, Halifax. For a time she seemed to be improving somewhat, but of late her condition began to fail and while her death was not altogether unexpected, it comes as a sad and distressing shock to her immediate family and a very wide circle of friends. A daughter of Mr and Mrs Daniel Ferguson, Murphy’s street, who not long ago celebrated their fifty seventh wedding anniversary, Mrs Holmes’ death is the first in one of Glace Bay’s most highly respected families. Possessing a charming and lovable disposition, Mrs Holmes was the ideal wife and mother, neighbor and friend. Next to her devotion to her home and family was her zealous interest in her church. An adherent of St Paul’s Presbyterian church all her lifetime, she was a willing worker in all the women’s societies of that church until illness compelled her to relinquish the many duties she had so well filled. She was also a valued member of Jubilee Rebekah Lodge for over 30 years, being a Past Noble Grand of that lodge as well as also being a Past President of the Past Noble Grand Club. Besides her husband, Parker Holmes, widely known engineer of the S & L Railway and prominent sportsman, she is survived by one daughter, Katherine Holmes, R.N., who nursed her mother in her last illness, and four sons all in Glace Bay, Fred, Donald, Stetson and Douglas. Surviving also are her aged parents, Mr and Mrs Daniel Ferguson, Murphy street, three sisters and two brothers. The sisters are Mrs Gregor McPherson, (Belle), Glace Bay; Mrs Percy Johnson, (Katie) in Medicine Hat, Alberta and Mrs Guy E Leslie (Chris), who resides in Montreal; and who is at present too ill to attend the obsequies of her sister.

Passed in: North Sydney
Passed on: January 10th, 2014

The family of Mullins Daniel Hood, age 97, regret to announce his passing on Friday, January 10, 2014 at the Northside General Hospital.

Mullins started his working career at an early age of 9 years old, working heavy horses on construction of the Georges River Road. He was employed at Fairhome Farm for a short time during the summer, the Bras d’Or Coal Company and Marine Atlantic, but his true passion was farming.

He also showed his cattle at various exhibitions throughout the province. Mullins was an active member of the Cape Breton Federation of Agriculture and the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture. Mullins also served as Manager of the Cape Breton County Exhibition from 1960 to approximately 1975. Upon retiring from dairy farming, Mullins bred and trained race horses and traveled throughout Nova Scotia with “Wild Chance” at stud. Finding retirement too confining, Mullins returned to the workforce employed by Neil J. Walker Lumber Ltd. And finished his working career working for his son at Circle H Products Ltd. His leisure time was then spent tending his flower and rose gardens and mowing the lawns. During the summers, up until 2006, he assisted his son and friend Gordon Carter in hay making.
Popie’s greatest joy in life was spending time with his grandchildren. The month of June would see him on vacation in New Hampshire with granddaughter Bobby Jo, August he was off to PEI for “Old Home Week” and the horse races with grandson Daniel, during the fall touring the mainland exhibitions with granddaughter Linda, and in the autumn it was trips around the Cabot Trail and fall colors with granddaughter Beverly. Popie made several trips to New York and spent a Christmas with granddaughter Marianne in Germany.
Mullins is survived by his only son, Robert C. and daughter-in-law Audrey (Lovett) Hood. Also surviving are his five grandchildren; Linda (Michael) Jobe, Truro, Beverly (Robert) MacLean, Groves Point, Marianne, Germany, Bobby Jo (Darren) Whalen, Halifax and Daniel (Jennifer Taylor), Georges River, his nine great-grandchildren Bradley & Lauren Jobe, Taylor & Katelyn MacLean, Breton, Matti & Dhani Whalen and Drew & Ryan Hood.

Mullins was predeceased by his wife Mary (Mullins) Hood; a son in infancy; brothers Robert W., Joseph, William and John and sisters Mary Christensen and Adeline Sturmy, nephews William 'Bill' Hood and Harvey Jensen.
The Hood family wish to thank Dr. Andrew Wawer, EMS, Ambulance Care Department, Emergency and 4 West at the Northside General Hospital for their compassion and care during Popie’s final days.
Honoring Popie’s wishes, cremation has taken place under the direction of W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant St., North Sydney.
There will be no visitation or funeral service. A private burial service will take place at Lakeside Cemetery, North Sydney, at a later date.

Passed on: June 2nd, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of William Hunt at the age of 92 years old on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at the Northside General Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Harbour Breton, N.L., he was the son of the late Andrew and Agnes (Harris) Hunt.
Bill is survived by his daughter, Frances Hurley, Brampton, Ont. And his son, Larry (Norma) Hunt, Albert Bridge, Cape Breton. “Grampy” is also survived by grandchildren, Aaron (Jennifer), Amy (Doug), Kelly (David), Liam, Stanley (Melanie), Shawn (Diane), Tracey (Charlie) and Perry, and 12 great-grandchildren.

William was a veteran of the Second World War. In 1939, shortly after the outbreak of the war, he and a dozen of his fellow Newfoundlanders from the Fortune Bay area were the first to enlist to go overseas. He was also the last surviving member of this group.
In 1953, Bill and Mary settled in Louisbourg, Cape Breton, to raise a family. For many years of his life, Bill worked on the water; fishing on various schooners, as well as being a lobster fisherman and member of the Canadian Coast Guard. He traveled as far north as the Arctic Circle and as far south as the Caribbean.
Bill was a talented storyteller; whether from his experiences growing up in Newfoundland, serving overseas in England and Scotland, or sailing and fishing on the open sea, he captured many hearts and minds with stories of his life. Although he will be dearly missed, the family knows he is happy to be reunited with “Nan”.

It is with much sadness the family of Gordon Charles Huntington announce his peaceful passing at his home on Jan. 3, 2013, surrounded by his children and his adoring bride of 43 years, Elaine.
Gord inspired us all, fighting his battle with cancer in the same faith-filled spirit that characterized his approach to all of the challenges and adventures in his life. His heart's desire in life and throughout his illness was to bear testimony to the transforming and saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Born in Sydney N.S. on June 14, 1947 he was a son of Harry Allan Huntington and the late Karen Lillian Huntington (Mikkelsen).
Raised in Huntington, Cape Breton, Gord graduated from Riverview Rural High School in 1965. He was an ROTP student at Mount Allison University and Nova Scotia Technical College, earning his Bachelor of Engineering in 1970. After serving four years in the Canadian Armed Forces, he began his career with Michelin, where he was a dedicated employee for 35 years. His career took him throughout North America, Europe and Asia, where he and his family enjoyed the benefits of travel and experiencing new cultures. The highlight of his career was his pioneering work in lean manufacturing and his integral role in the development of the Michelin Manufacturing Way (MMW).
Gord was a member of Pleasantville Baptist Church, where he took part in the Men's Fellowship. He facilitated many Alpha courses around the world. He enjoyed skiing, biking, kayaking and photography. He was happiest when with his family at home in Nova Scotia.
Memories of Gord will be cherished by loving wife, Elaine (nee Corey); children, Corey, Ottawa, Ont.; Katrina (Greg Stainton), Aylmer, Que; Caleb, Salt Spring Island, B.C.; Jordan (Patricia Irivarren), Kanata, Ont.; grandchildren, Rachel, Vincent, Isaac, Ivy and Santiago; siblings, Russell (Pearl), Marion Bridge, N.S.; Hazel (Paul) McPhee, Aurora, Ont.; David (Ann Marie Richard), Memramcook, N.B.; Ken (Kathy), Dartmouth, N.S.; and Kathy (Robert) Bell, Marion Bridge.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Harry Allan Huntington, who died at the age of 88, on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, at his home in Huntington.
Born Nov. 25, 1924, and a native of Huntington, he was the son of Frederick Allan ‘Allie’ and Rebecca Huntington.
He was the beloved husband of Wilma (Stevenson) Huntington. Harry leaves behind sons, Russell (Pearl), Marion Bridge, N.S., David (Anne Marie), Memramcook, N.B., Ken (Kathy), Dartmouth, N.S.; daughters, Hazel (Paul McPhee), Aurora, Ont., Kathy (Robert Bell), Marion Bridge, N.S.; daughter-in-law, Elaine Huntington; his 15 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, all loved him dearly and will cherish fond memories.

He will be missed by his close circle of friends who visited with him regularly.
Harry lived a very full life and made every day count. During his lifetime he reached out to the community. He wanted to make a difference and he did.
A natural leader, innovator and entrepreneur, he started many initiatives in Marion Bridge, and as far away as Panama. He was an employer, bringing industry to the community as a farmer, operating the country store on the Huntington property, building the Marion Bridge Shopping Centre and gas station, establishing MB Pulp and MB Enterprises. He was the first pulp producer in Cape Breton.
He was very active in the community over the years with such things as the Marion Bridge volunteer department, Marion Bridge Recreation Centre, the Mira Gala, producing maple syrup, Mira Pasture Co-Op, running sleigh rides at the Mira Pasture where he served his homemade fish cakes, beans and corn and clam chowder, and a member of CBRM Property Tax Association for fair property tax.
An author, he wrote the story of his life and provided a lot of insight into our local history. It is fair to say that he was an icon in our community and will be long remembered. He was always interested in others and had many friends. He loved to visit with friends and neighbours. Even in his last few days he entertained close friends who dropped by. There was always a cup of tea and a little something to eat.

Huntington Merrill MacKenzie Huntington Cape Breton Post 10/24/2008
Merrill MacKenzie Huntington 1937-2008 - Born in Cape Breton to the late Fred Huntington and Barbara (MacKenzie) Huntington. On Wednesday, Oct.15, 2008, Merrill lost his courageous battle with prostate cancer. Merrill worked outdoors most of his adult life, but it was the Sydney Steel plant he left in 1967 when he moved to Toronto with his wife and baby son to find a better life for his family. He attended the Devry technical institute for two years to obtain his technical certification before taking a job as a line worker for Bell Canada. Merrill loved this job, and remained a line worker until his retirement from Maritime Telegraph and Telephone in 1999. In 1974 Nova Scotia called him home and he returned to Dartmouth with his wife and two children, a daughter having joined his family during his time 'down the road'. Merrill always loved the outdoors, particularly hunting and fishing. Golf was a fond pastime also, especially with his friends and men from the company who were all always ready to have a laugh at each other's expense. Music was a passion for Merrill his entire life, and during his later years he discovered the joy of performing and playing guitar and singing. This brought a number of new and great friends into Merrill's life. Merrill looked forward every year to the summer months when he would spend time on the Mira where he had his cabin looking over the river. Merrill was a friend of Bill for the past 28 years. His friends and family will attest to his sense of humour, specifically his sense of mischief in the presence of authority. If friends and family would talk, many others would well shake their heads in amazement. His sense of fun aside, Merrill always, always put his family, friends (several of whom were family to him), and even strangers before himself. He was an active participant in the special needs support groups, spending his weekends at the bowling alley with the people who enjoyed this so much. Merrill is survived by Viola Huntington (Olie MacKinnon), his beloved wife and partner in life of 45 years; his daughter, Laurel Ann; his son, Clifford and wife Julie; his two granddaughters, Tahlia and Riley; and his best friend Earl Hodgson and wife Jane. Merrill is also survived by brothers and sisters, Lorna Stuckless, Lowell and wife Helen, Lyndon and partner Catherine; sister in-law, Sharon; and too many nieces and nephews to count here. Merrill was predeceased by his brother, Terrence. Merrill will be missed terribly by all of us, but we will always be thankful for the time he shared with us. His family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the kind people who gave such good care to Merrill during his illness. To the staff and the Palliative care unit in 7a at the VG hospital, the people at the Red Cross, the people at the VON, and his personal physician and oncologist. Thank you so much for your compassion and your efforts to give Merrill's last days as much dignity and comfort as was humanly possible. Merrill's children wish to also say thank you to the family and friends who provided so much support for Merrill and Viola during this terribly difficult time. We invite you to join us in celebrating Merrill's life on Saturday, Oct. 25 at the Centennial Branch Legion Branch 160, 703 Main St., Dartmouth from 2-6 p.m. We would ask that Merrill's musical friends please bring their instruments and singing voices. No flowers by the family's request. If you so wish please consider either donations Support Services Group (SSG), 10 Dundas St., Dartmouth, 466 0230, or your local food bank. 10/15/2008 Born in Cape Breton
