Born: February 7th, 1996
Passed in: Potlotek
Passed on: June 23rd, 2013
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Allan Stewart Lafford on June 23, 2013.
Allan was born in Sydney, N.S., to Harriet Battiste and Benji Lafford on Feb. 7, 1996. Allan’s most notable quality was his genuine love for smiling and bringing a smile to the face of others. His funky Lafford laugh forced others to laugh alongside him, whether they wanted to or not. It was in Allan’s character to tease his brothers and sisters, as well as his parents, whenever he saw an opportunity. His favourite saying was, “You know what? You know what? I don’t have the slightest idea!"
Allan is survived by his parents, Harriet, Potlotek and Benji Lafford, Eskasoni; his brothers, Jake Battiste, Ben Lafford, Ekkian Lafford, Potlotek, Jason Maloney, Indianbrook; his sisters, Mary Susan, Amanda, Eleanor, Potlotek, Madeline, Mount Uniacke, Santana, Eskasoni. Allan was the chosen child of Elizabeth Benoit whom she raised from birth. Allan is also survived by his girlfriend, Mikayla Hill, Sydney. Stewart Benoit, Georgia, USA and Mary V. Marshall, Potlotek, were given the responsibility of being Allan’s godparents. Allan experienced the joy of being an uncle to Harmony, Jennifer, Evelyn, Zachary, Linden and Tyson and was on his way to becoming a godfather himself to Shyla-Mae Roberts.
He was predeceased by his brother, Jervis Park, his maternal grandparents, Jacob and Madeline Battiste, his paternal grandparents, Ben and Helen Lafford and a maternal uncle, Jacob Battiste Jr.
Perhaps the greatest loss that Allan suffered was the loss of his best friend, Melissa Marshall, a loss which he never completely got over. Allan shared a special relationship with his mentor, Pi’kun Poulette, who started his own spirit journey in February. Allan’s journey into the spirit world began on a special day, his grandmother’s birthday. We believe that Madeline was there to greet her grandson, take his hand, and guide him on his journey. Although here for only a short time, Allan lived his life to the fullest! He was an avid Montreal Canadiens fan, loved to fish, hunt, play basketball, hike, visit with friends and play his guitar. He was a traditionalist in his heart and lived for pow wows and participating in sweats. Allan was honoured to receive his spirit name, Tall Standing Black Bear, in a ceremony conducted by his mentors Frank and Josie Augustine of Elsipogtog, N.B. He received his sacred colours at this time as well – Green, Brown, and Blue.
Allan’s ultimate goal was to become a member of the RCMP. With his untimely death, he gets to be a hero in another way. Allan was an organ donor and as such, saved the lives of five people ... people he didn’t even know. This is so typical of Allan — to help whomever he can, whenever he can.
Visitation will be held at the home where Allan grew up — the home of Elizabeth Benoit, 323 Stimuk Rd., Potlotek (across from Mi’kmawey School). Visitation will begin at 7 p.m., Thursday. Funeral mass will take place at the Immaculate Conception Church, Barra Head, on Saturday, June 29, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. with Rev. Lourdusamy Mariadoss officiating. Interment to follow in the Immaculate Conception Parish Cemetery, Barra Head.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the C.H. Boudreau Funeral Home in Arichat.

Donald 'Bohdon' Lahanky
Born In: Zubow
Passed on: February 14th, 2014
Donald ‘Bohdon’ Lahanky, 88, of Moncton, passed away peacefully at home, with his family at his side, on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013.
Born in Zubow, Poland, he was the son of the late Joseph and Katherine (Greczylo) Lahanky from Ukraine.
He arrived in Sydney, N.S., at the age of 24, where he worked at the Sydney Steel Plant and met his wife of 60 years, Anne Wodoslawski. They were married in Sydney at the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church. They settled in Moncton in 1959 to raise their family.
As a hardworking entrepreneur, he founded Allsco Building Supplies in 1975, which grew to be a leading vinyl building products business in Atlantic Canada. In 1982, he also started Atlantic Commercial Properties, evolving into a successful real estate development company.
Don was a member of the Polish Corps during the Second World War. Before coming to Canada in 1949, he was stationed in England.
As a devout Catholic, he was an active parishioner at St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church for over 50 years.
Don knew the value of community spirit and giving back and thus supported and was involved with St. Pat’s Family Centre, St. Augustine’s Knights of Columbus, Greater Moncton Junior Achievement, St. Augustine’s parish council and building committee, YMCA and the Moncton Ukrainian Club.
He actively supported the Moncton Hospital and Dr. Georges-L. Dumont Hospital, United Way, Moncton Headstart, Habitat for Humanity, sponsored children in Third World countries and Children of Chernobyl, Moncton Boys and Girls Club, Harvest House, House of Nazareth and many more.
In addition to his endearing love for his family, Don was so very appreciative for the freedom and opportunities that Canada blessed him and his family with.
As a benevolent man, Don never forgot his Ukrainian heritage and thus provided a very compelling gift to his homeland by way of building a new church for his village, so as to give them a place for faithful worship. As Don himself said “It was an even bigger gift to me — to my heart!”
Don was especially proud of his children’s relationships in working together to build his companies and took tremendous satisfaction in creating jobs and opportunities for others.
In recognition of Don’s business accomplishments, the Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce awarded him the very first Entrepreneur of the Year for Excellence and also the GMCC Life Time Achievement Award.
In Toronto in 1999, Don was bestowed the prestigious “Nation Building Award” by the Ukrainian Canadian Professional and Business Federation.
Don’s family life was where his happiness flowed from spending precious time with his wife, children and grandchildren.
His leisure pastimes included gardening, playing cards and doing puzzles, not to mention being a jack of all trades. He was an avid sports and soccer fan, as in his youth, his team won the Atlantic championship.
Don will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 60 years, Anne (Wodoslawski) Lahanky; his children, Nadia MacDonald (Saen), Terry Lahanky, Danica Lahanky Carroll (Paul), Natalie Geneau (Ron) and Gordon Lahanky; precious grandchildren, Larissa Blanchard (Andre), Natasha and Sarah Lahanky, Stephanie and Brittany Geneau and Joshua and Olivia Lahanky; cherished great-granddaughter, Elyse Blanchard. Don is also survived by two cousins in Sydney, Jean Madore and Anne Mills; two sisters-in-law and three nephews in the Ukraine. He was the last surviving member of his immediate family.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers, Maurice and Peter and Uncle Paul (Boss) Lahanky, who sponsored bringing Don to Canada (Sydney, N.S.) in 1949.

James 'Jimmie' Guy Laidlaw
Born In: Sydney Mines
Son of the late Jessie and Lawrence Laidlaw, Sydney Mines.
He is survived by wife Margaret (Peg); sons, Donald (Stephanie), Corey (Melissa) and four wonderful grandchildren, Megan, Lucas, Caitlin and Joseph 'JJ'; sisters, Willena (Bob) Johnson, Ontario, and Linda Arsenault, Halifax; brothers, Larry, Calgary, and George, Halifax.
He was predeceased by brother Doug and sister Anne.
Friends and family lost a vital life force when Jim finally succumbed to the cancer wracking his body. Those fortunate enough to have known him will have memories that will make them smile for years. His precious grandchildren for whom "Papa could fix anything!" will feel his love long after they have grown and hopefully, will pass it on to their children.
Sons, Don and Corey, have realized their good fortune in having such a special and giving father which is evident when one sees them with their own children.
Jim started his working career in the Bank of Nova Scotia and went on to join Revenue Canada Taxation where he did well and made many more friends. However, what our Jim liked to do best was "play". Hunting, fishing, skiing (water and snow), scuba diving, motorcycling, golfing, canoeing, ATV riding, travelling and dancing were some of his many pursuits. All were done with total enjoyment.
For his wife of 44 years, Peggy he has truly been a life partner and best friend. "Nobody looks after you like I do" he was fond of saying and that is so true. We travelled a wonderful road together and I shall ever hold all my wonderful memories close, feeling him still by my side.
There will be a "Celebration of Life" service at 6 p.m., Friday, Nov. 29 at the Centennial Legion (Branch 160), 730 Main Street (#7 Hwy.), and Dartmouth. Reception to follow until 8 p.m. Interment will be private at a later date.
Family flowers only. In lieu, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or charity of choice.
He'll wait for us in his quiet place and watch over us till we meet again.

Born In: New Victoria
Born: August 27th, 1922
Passed on: April 24th, 2013
George Lamey passed away peacefully on April 24, 2013 at the Glace Bay Hospital.
George was the eldest son of the late Joseph and Mary Ann (Nicholson) Lamey. Born on August 27, 1922 in New Victoria, he grew up on Upper Daley Road and went to work at DEVCO at the age of 18.
He joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1942 and briefly served at Fort Petrie, building barracks, before going overseas in 1943 at the age of 20.
George served in Europe with the Service Corps specializing in transport with the 85th Bridge Company. He landed at Normandy on D-Day. His company worked with infantry and engineers, advancing all of the boats, rafts, and Bailey Bridges that allowed the Allied troops to move further inland as the enemy retreated.
In 1944, his company moved through Holland as the Allied forces freed the Dutch people from the Nazi occupiers. By 1945, he was transporting troops and supplies all around Holland, Belgium and Germany.
While George was overseas, his father Joe was killed in a rock fall at No. 18 colliery. When he returned home to New Victoria, he married Lorraine Ratchford, and built a home in New Victoria, where he lived until just a few short months before his passing.
George worked at the lamp cabin at No. 18, the boiler room at No. 12 and the fan house at Lingan. As he got closer to retirement he took up lobster fishing off the shores of New Victoria.
He served his community as a volunteer firefighter and was an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 128 in Whitney Pier. After his retirement, George and Lorraine took several trips to Holland to retrace the path he took during the war. They made lasting friendships with families they met there, especially with the van den Berkt family.
George is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Lorraine, currently residing at Maple Hill Manor; his son, Brian (Maria) of New Victoria; daughter, Anita Zemlyak (Frank) of Halifax and son, Guy, also of New Victoria.

Langley Vernon Langley The Toronto Star 9/12/2005 Bill Cook Vernon Langley died August 3 in Toronto East General Hospital at age 74. Vernon Langley, 74: Lent a voice to addicts Counsellor `loved his clients unconditionally' Studied singing and piano before life took a turn Vernon Langley's rich tenor never rang throughout the great halls of Europe or even North America. He never flicked his tails as he sat down at a gleaming grand piano, as he may have once dreamed of doing when a musical lad growing up in Cape Breton. Instead he made a life, for a while, as a high-flying, hard-living executive with a Montreal pharmaceutical firm and then at a Toronto headhunting operation, filling his empty core with back-slapping nights doing business in hotel bars that rapidly blurred into days and nights of boozy cravings and a terrible addiction. But it was in this weakness that Langley found his greatness. Since 1975, he counselled and treated alcoholics and drug addicts. Thousands of them. He was so well loved and so respected that those who were returning for second and third chances at sobriety would ask for him. "Vern Langley was a man who never shamed, never judged. He loved his clients unconditionally," said Jeff Stein, executive director of Just For Today, a Toronto outpatient harm-reduction facility for clients facing criminal charges where Langley worked for seven years. "And if you have a counsellor who never judges you, you have a remarkable human being." Counselling addicts can be "a tiresome, tireless and tiring process," Stein said, yet he never heard Langley raise his voice. He was especially effective at counselling the cross-addicted and those with a bipolar condition. "Vernon would instil hope in them," he said. Langley was a tall, lanky man with a big presence, who dressed in fine suits set off by one of his collection of 100 silk ties, wore burnished Bostonian loafers, and radiated class as well as concern as he counselled — always with his eyes wide open — men who had been crawling on their bellies after hitting rock bottom. "He had a little office on the second floor," Stein recalled. "Most counsellors would have the clients go up to them, but Vern made a point of always coming down and escorting them up." Since 1975, Langley had also worked for Alpha House, a residence for men addicted to alcohol and drugs. "He was a beautiful human being," said Donna Westman, its executive director. The two of them often went to prisons to interview inmates. "He had a way about him. As soon as he said hello and smiled, the cons knew he was okay. They could tell he wouldn't judge them," she said. Langley grew up in Port Hood, N.S., kitty corner from St. Peter's Church where Sister Honora gave him his first piano lessons. His family attended the United Church in the pretty coastal town, where his father was a barber when he wasn't fishing. He was just a young teen when he began accompanying fiddlers on piano at church hall dances and kitchen parties. "He loved to sing and dance," said Marjorie Langley, who is married to his nephew and lives in Antigonish, N.S. "He played a mean piano at those house parties." After teaching in a country school on the Nova Scotia mainland for a year or two, he headed to Toronto to take piano and vocal training at the illustrious Royal Conservatory of Music. He sang with the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir for nine years and in church choirs for more than 40 years. "I still remember him telling me how someone made a snide remark to him about coming from Cape Breton," said Father Don Campbell, a lifelong friend who is a priest in New York City. The two grew up together in Port Hood and roomed in Toronto while going to school. "Vernon didn't drink when we grew up. There wasn't even a tavern in Port Hood then, and when we were students in Toronto we didn't have the money or inclination to do that. We had a good time without it." But that changed sometime after Langley left the music school, although his friends and family say they were never aware how big a problem alcohol was becoming to him. Even Campbell didn't know why or when his oldest friend joined Alcoholics Anonymous, but when Langley died — on Aug. 3 at age 74 in the Toronto East General Hospital — he'd been sober for well over 30 years. Another meaningful date was Aug. 15, 1980, the day he became a Roman Catholic. Langley's conversion may have been precipitated by the death of his younger brother, Orville, that year in a Toronto rooming house fire, but Langley had also made a habit of visiting Campbell in New York just before Easter every year, staying in a nearby hotel and attending several days of services at St. Paul the Apostle, a large church on Manhattan's west side. Campbell would buy them tickets to an opera at the Lincoln Centre after the Holy Thursday service. "He was drawn to the music of the church, but there was this spiritual dimension to him as well," said Campbell. It's very possible Langley would have become a priest as well, had he not already become an addiction counsellor. "Vernon had a calling. Vernon wanted very much to serve God. That was paramount and he considered being an ordained deacon," said Monsignor John Murphy, who met Langley in 1985. "But it may have occurred to him that that is precisely what he was already doing." In 1997, Langley was heading out for a lunch break on the Danforth, just outside the building where Just For Today was then located, when he collapsed. It was the first of a series of heart attacks that led to bypass surgery and a stint at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute before he could walk — and work — again. He kept on working until about a year before he died, continuing to come home to Nova Scotia every September. He moved into the Birtch Place Co-op on Queen St. E., a drug- and alcohol-free residence where he was a member of the board. It was here his family and friends gathered after his funeral. They had been ushered into St. Michael's Cathedral to the hymn "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony as sung by a dozen members of the boys choir. "The music was beautiful," said Campbell, who celebrated the mass. Langley chose most of it before he died. Langley also asked Campbell to celebrate his funeral mass in Port Hood, which takes place Saturday in St. Peter's, the Catholic church across the street from the house where he grew up. He is being buried in the Protestant cemetery near his parents and brother Orville.

believed and practiced the three C’s. “People need to be capable, connected and to contribute. With this
combination, you’ll only have success.” Nelson was a devoted family man and was an inspiration to his
children and grandchildren. He was a true gentleman, who instilled in his family, values of hard work,

LeBlanc Dr. Claude 'Doc' LeBlanc CBP 9/7/2010
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of husband and father Dr. Claude (Doc) LeBlanc, who died Friday, Sept. 3, 2010, at the age of 78. Born April 16, 1932 in Sydney, N.S., on Cape Breton Island, Claude fell in love with the Rocky Mountains and made Calgary his home. Claude will be missed by his wife of 50 years, Sandra; his children, Mark (wife Terri, granddaughter Alex and grandson Tanner), Paul (grandsons, Blake and Ross) and JD (wife Jean). Of his immediate siblings, Claude is survived by sisters, Sister Therese (Marie), Elaine, Anne Celeste, Marguerite, Roland and Paul; cousin, Frank LeBlanc (wife Gayle), and his extended family of friends and their children. He was predeceased by his parents, brothers and sisters from Cape Breton; Claude was one of 24 and grew up in the post-war Maritimes. With a series of scholarships, he managed to earn his way into College St. Anne for undergraduate degrees and then the University of Ottawa for medicine where he earned his MD and LMCC. His devotion to and love of medicine emanated from the loss of his mother at childbirth. It was this same love and devotion, but this time to the Rockies, that led to Calgary, where he built a diverse medical practice, in becoming Chief of Staff at the Holy Cross and Rockyview hospitals and teaching medicine through the University of Calgary. He and Sandra formed a loving family upon which a deep and broad base of friends evolved. His passion for the mountains led him into hiking, downhill and backcountry skiing. With family and friends, he worked his way through just about every hike there was in the Rockies. His passions in life were family, friends, medicine and the mountains. Funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Anthony's Catholic Church, 5340-4th St., S.W., Calgary, Alta., on Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010, at 1 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 200, 119-14th St., N.W., Calgary, Alta., T2N 1Z6; 403-264-5549, www.heartandstroke.ca. In living memory of Claude LeBlanc, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Dr., S.W., Calgary, Alta., 1-800-661-1599. 9/3/2010 Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada 16/04/1932

Leblanc Mary Leblanc Cape Breton Post 11/5/2010
Surrounded by faithful friends, Mary Cecilia ‘Bomber’ Leblanc passed peacefully away at her home, The Vineyard, at L’Arche Cape Breton on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2010. Born in North Sydney to the late John F. Leblanc and Lillian Irene Day, Mary is survived by brothers, John, Reg, Lawrence, Earl, Lloyd, Kevin and William and sisters, Marina, Yanetta, Dorothy  and Beverly.  She was predeceased by her sister, Doreen. Having left her family home at a young age, Mary claimed the community of L’Arche as her second family and we were happy to oblige. Over her 27 years as a member of L’Arche, Mary was  model of strength, grace, and dignity. And yet, she loved to laugh, at herself and especially at others.  Mary was a woman who knew her own mind and stood up for her beliefs, no matter what the cost. Even as she aged, she never lost the ability to make things work in her favour: to get the  right spoon, to skip the main meal in favour of dessert, to convince the young men to sit and hold her hand. We will miss her smile and her determination. Visitation will be held on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Mary’s home, The Vineyard, at 1397 Orangedale Rd. A celebration of Mary’s life will be held in the L’Arche Cape  Breton Chapel in Iron Mines at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7, 2010. Family and friends are invited to join the L’Arche community for a reception immediately following the service at the Angels’  Loft, Orangedale.  Donations in Mary’s memory may be made to The Hospice Society of Victoria County, P.O.

Alan Leith
Born In: Sydney
Born: August 9th, 1946
Passed on: April 11th, 2013
It is with saddened and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our father, Alan Robert Leith, at home, on Thursday, April 11, 2013.
Alan was born in Sydney on August 9, 1946 to the late Bernard (Bernie) Leith and Sonya (Gluck) Leith.
Alan is survived by Anne Louise (MacDonald) Leith; their four children, Amanda (Fred MacIntosh), Raie, Adrienne (Steve MacIsaac), Andrew (Erin); three granddaughters who he absolutely adored: Isabelle, Molly and Eleanor; as well as his two sisters, Bethsheila (Floyd) Kent and Rebecca (Leo) LeBlanc; brothers-in-law Johnny, Alec (Valerie), Francis (Karen), Peter (Trish) and Danny (Dany) and many nieces, nephews and great-nephews. Alan is also survived by his mother-in-law, Hilda MacDonald; and his uncle Manny Gluck, both of whom he cared for deeply.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister-in-law Mary Margaret Gillis.
Alan graduated from Mount Allison University in 1969 and over the years enjoyed successful careers in radio and television in both Ontario and Quebec. He also taught in the Radio Broadcast Journalism department at Niagara College for a number of years before returning home to Sydney with his family in 1988. Following his return, Alan became something of an entrepreneur and dabbled in the restaurant business, and for many years ran a successful retail music store.
Alan and his best friend, the late Jack Columbus, shared a lifelong obsession with all things ham radio. He and Jack were among the first Cape Bretoners to engage in this international hobby and looked forward to and attended as many ham radio conventions as possible. Alan was very proud of his call sign VE1AL, which he's had since he was just 11 years old. He had a great singing voice and played the guitar in his younger days. He was a self-made audiophile, able to answer even the most obscure questions about songs and artists from any musical genre. He loved Cape Breton Island and instilled his love for this place in both his children and grandchildren. Alan was actively involved in The Temple Sons of Israel and acted as the editor of our small community’s newsletter. He was also a member of the Golden K.
Alan loved his four children and three grandchildren more than life itself. He will be deeply and sadly missed, but remembered forever by all of them.
A celebration of Alan’s life will be held at the Sydney Memorial Chapel, Welton Street, Sydney on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 2 p.m. with Rabbi Ellis.
Donations may be made to the Canadian Heart and Stoke Foundation or Canadian Diabetes Association.

Leith Anne Louise ‘Lou’ (MacDonald) Leith CBP 10/1/2013
Anne Louise ‘Lou’ (MacDonald) Leith
Born In: Sydney
Born: July 16th, 1951
Passed in: Sydney
Passed on: September 28th, 2013
It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of our mother, Anne Louise ‘Lou’ (MacDonald) Leith on Sept. 28, 2013, surrounded by the love and support of her family.
Anne Louise was born on July 16, 1951, in Sydney, N.S., to Hilda and Hector MacDonald.
She was the centre of her family, and a rock to her children, Amanda (Fred MacIntosh), Raie, Adrienne (Steve MacIsaac) and Andrew (Erin), who all love and cherish her. She was also the adored grandmother of Isabelle, Molly and Eleanor. In addition to her children and grandchildren, Anne Louise is survived by her mother, Hilda MacDonald; brothers, Alex (Valerie), Francis (Karen), Peter (Trish) and Danny (Dany); special cousins, Mary Catherine O'Donnell and Ann Marie MacDonald; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Anne Louise was predeceased by her husband, Alan Leith, father, Hector MacDonald, her sister, Mary Margaret Gillis and nephew, John-John Gillis.
Anne Louise married Alan Leith in 1973 and acquired the nickname Lou. She moved to Ontario in 1974 where her children were born, and where it is believed that she first told them to “go do something, even if it was wrong.” In 1988, she returned to Cape Breton with her family and reignited her passion for the island. Throughout her career, she was involved in promoting Cape Breton and particularly loved her work at Destination Cape Breton. Her dedication and commitment will be missed by friends and colleagues, particularly Caroline, Linda and Mary.
A tremendous presence in the lives of all who knew her, Lou was the strength and the glue that bound her family. With grace and dedication beyond measure, Lou gave her children and her mother the gift of unwavering support and the freedom to be independent.
Lou loved witty conversation, good books and great friends. She lived her life with rare passion and conviction, and had a wicked sense of humour that was admired by many but duplicated by none. She will be forever remembered, honoured and cherished by all who knew her, and especially by her children and grandchildren who will do their very best to keep her memory alive by reminding visitors that they don't have to go home, but they can't stay here.
Visitation for Lou Leith will take place at the Pier Community Funeral Home on Wednesday, Oct. 2 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A graveside service to celebrate Lou’s life will be held at St. Andrew's Parish Cemetery, Boisdale, on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at 2:30 p.m. at the family home in Sydney.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Lou's memory may be made to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre, the Cape Breton Palliative Care Service or the Victorian Order of Nurses.
We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in our mother's care, including Dr. Khodadad, Dr. Butler, Dr. Ritter, Dr. Burns, Dr. Zwicker, the nurses at Palliative Care and the VON, in particular Karen MacDonald, David Crowe, Pat Morrison, Paul Letourneau, Lorne Pemberton, Laurie Mortimer, Beth Latham, Helen and many others who were so caring and dedicated to ensuring she was so well looked after.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

He is survived by numerous nieces and nephews including three special nieces, Myrtle, Barbie and Darlene who cared for him as he prepared his journey to sail into the waiting arms of loved ones who went before him. 
We would also like to thank Dr. Collins, Dr. Pluta, Dr. Cooper, Nancy Cameron and all those associated with palliative care, home care and staff of Strait Richmond Hospital.

Leslie Lloyd 'Jack' Leslie Cape Breton Post 5/5/2009
Lloyd “Jack” Leslie, born June 12, 1931, in Glace Bay, N.S., passed away on May 2, 2009, in Annapolis Royal, N.S. Early in his life, as a teenager, he worked on the steam trains at the Glace Bay railyard, a job he reminisced about frequently, later in life. For over 20 years he was a firefighter in the Glace Bay Fire Department and was chief of the department for several years in the early 1970s, before moving his family to British Columbia, where he purchased an apple orchard in the Okanagan Valley. After operating this small orchard for a time, the call of the province he loved drew him back to Nova Scotia, where he settled with his family in the Upper Clements area of the Annapolis Valley. Here, he was a businessman and woodworker, who was known for his exquisite cabinetry and oak clocks. Forever inventive, he was always formulating new ideas. He was also a fine carpenter having built, almost single-handedly, three of his own family”s dwellings during his life. This included his last home in Upper Clements, which became his true and lasting home. Music was very important in his life, and it was a rare visit indeed when Bach or Mozart wasn”t playing in the background. He also had an abiding love of all things natural, especially the songbirds at his feeders. He was a talented, gentle man who loved his family above all else. Lloyd “Jack” Leslie is survived by his wife, Jean Leslie of Upper Clements; his children, Daniel, Grand River, N.S., Beverly and Scott, Annapolis Royal; his granddaughter, Lindsay, Halifax; his grandsons, Jacob, Annapolis Royal, and Scott and Adam, Grand River, N.S., and his great-grandson, Luke, Halifax, as well as the rest of his family and friends.

Louis Lessie

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of my father, father-in-law, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend, Louie Lessie at the Harbour View Hospital, Veterans Wing, Sydney Mines, on Friday, Oct. 2, 2009, after a short illness with cancer, with his son Jack and daughter-in-law Debbie by his side.
Formerly of 34 Thomas St., Sydney, Dad spent his last nine months at Harbourview Hospital, where they became part of his extended family and was treated with great respect, kindness and compassion by all who knew him.
Born in Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Leonardo and Carmella (Esposito) Lessi.
At the age of two years Louie or ‘Gee’ as most would call him later in life, was brought to Birch Grove with the rest of his siblings and then later he would call Sydney his permanent home.
Louie served in the Canadian Armed Forces during the Second World War between the years of 1943 and 1946. Upon leaving the army he was employed first at the naval base in Point Edward and then later was employed with Sydney Steel in the machine shop where he retired after 28 years of service.
A quiet man by nature, Louie enjoyed visiting with family and friends and catching up on the everyday events in their lives. He was not someone who chatted a lot but he was an attentive listener and enjoyed when one would carry on or joke in his presence.
Louie had a talent for working with wood which shone through in his younger years when he and his brother Dominic would build many a thing. His passion for cars was also a great interest to him, one could find him browsing the car lots and checking out the new arrivals. Louie enjoyed bowling as well as sitting quietly with his guitar.
Louie is survived by his son, John ‘Jack’ and daughter-in-law, Debbie, Sydney; sister, Patricia MacNeil, Reserve Mines; sister-in-law, Margaret Globe, Sydney; and many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Louie was predeceased by his loving wife, Viola (Weatherbee), brothers, Dominic ‘Tony’, Frank, sister, Virginia in childhood, sisters-in-law, Dorothy Lessi, Alice Marks, Hazel Hartry, Emma Steele and brothers-in-law, John MacNeil, Walter Marks, Walter Steele and William ‘Bill’ Hartry.

Clare Leterte
Born In: Sydney
Passed in: Sydney
Passed on: October 27th, 2013
Sadness fills our hearts as we regretfully announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, Clare Leterte, on Sunday, October 27, 2013, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, with her family at her bedside.
Born in Sydney, she was the daughter of the late John and Christina (Roberts) Murphy.
She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
A long drive along the back roads of Cape Breton was an activity that Mom took great pleasure in. From early days with Dad and friends, until as recently as last week, she got to watch the beauty of the island and beyond pass by. In years past, she worked at Simpsons and she was an avid skater. That was where she met her future husband Victor and together that love for skating was passed on to her children. Family and friends were very important to Mom and she seemed to be at her best when the house on Harold Street was full. The ‘grand opening’ at Christmas time was an event to be remembered. The living room was filled with presents, warm feelings and Mom’s laugh could be heard throughout the evening. Her bright blue eyes would sparkle for family and unexpected guests and always when Santa arrived. Clare was a stay at home Mom and her concern was that family was healthy, happy and well taken care of.
She is survived by four children, Paul (Karen), Mira; Vicki (Joe Orkish), Sydney; Dale (Gwen Carey), East Bay and Christopher, at home. Also surviving are her eight grandchildren, Jennifer (Darryl Huett), Paul Marcus (Natasha Pitchuk), Terry, Ryan (Ali), Meghan (Jason), Chelsea, Riley and Kaylee; great grandchildren, Brandon, Harrison, Ella, Chloe and Mason, nieces and nephews and Minnie the cat.
She was predeceased by her husband Victor in 2000; sisters Ruth MacDonald, Lena Mitchell, Winnie MacSween, Nora Biondi, Kay Murphy; brothers, John, Gerald, Cyril, George and great grandchild, Morgan Leigh MacKay.
There will be no visitation for Mrs. Leterte. Funeral mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 10 a.m. in St. Joseph’ s Church, Sydney with Rev. Bill Burke officiating. Interment in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.
Thanks to the VON Day Program and City Homemakers.
