It is with heavy hearts that the family of Charles Michael Racki regret to announce his passing on April 28, 2012, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, An Cala Unit. Charlie, as he was known by most, was Born in Sydney, Feb. 7, 1947. He was the only son of the late Dragutin ‘Charles’ and Maragret Racki (nee Conway) of Whitney Pier.

Charlie also was the commanding officer for squadron 693 for 15 years. He enjoyed his time helping cadets learn structure and discipline associated with that of the forces. He shares many stories and memories of his various excursions camping and hiking, of those were his Kelly’s Mountain adventure. Charlie was an avid sports fan, always cheering for his New York Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays. Charlie believed that he could use his passion for sport to help shape and sculpt the character of today’s youth. For many years Charlie coached baseball in Sydney and District Little League where he found success in helping kids develop their love for the game. Charlie also served as the general manager of the Cape Breton Tradesmen Major Midget Hockey Club, where he was the driving force behind the scenes making sure players had opportunity to learn and develop. Charlie believed that sports acted as a catalyst for teaching life skills to kids like team work, discipline and work ethic. Charlie was a man of integrity and principle. Even though strapped with coronary heart disease and cancer, he made everyday count. He fought and battled these illnesses with courage, determination and a sense of humour, never complaining and always moving forward. Charlie will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

Donald Rankin

Born on: 11/07/1913

Passed away in: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Passed away on: 25/03/2010

Donald Alexander Rankin died peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of Thursday, March 25, 2010 in his 97th year.
He was born on SW Mabou Ridge, Mabou, Cape Breton on July 11, 1913.
When he was a young person he lived with the village doctor, Dr. Kennedy, after his own father died, and accompanied the doctor on his calls around the countryside (he was pleased as punch to have learned to drive at the age of 12).
Donald started his education in a one-room school house and completed degrees at St. Francis Xavier and Queen’s universities. He served overseas in the Canadian Army during the Second World War (where he had the opportunity to visit Scotland for the first time and amaze people that, although he was a Canadian, he was fluent in Gaelic). In 1943 he married Mary Eunice Macdonald.
After the war he worked in the Department of Justice and the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. He had many interesting stories of investigating price fixing in the manufacturing industry, sometimes accompanied by an RCMP officer.
During this period he had four daughters, and in 1956 was able to move from an apartment into a new home and there he stayed for the next 48 years. He really loved his house and it was always a meeting place for family and friends.
Upon retirement he taught Gaelic, his beloved native tongue, in Alexandria, Ont. He volunteered at the Civic Hospital in Ottawa. He visited his immediate and extended family in British Columbia, Ontario and Cape Breton. His love of Scottish music and traditions involved him in the Fiddler’s Club and Gaelic Society as well as a few more visits to Scotland. He was a fan of the Highland Games and attended any that he could get to. And he loved a little snifter when he was in the company of family and friends.
When he moved to West Park Long Term Care in Toronto after an illness, he greatly appreciated all the visits and phone calls he received (and the gifts of Scotch!).
Donald was predeceased by his wife, Mary Eunice (Macdonald), his brothers Angus, Johnnie and Kenneth and his sisters, Catherine and Sadie (MacIsaac). He is survived by his four daughters, Loretto Ann, Bernardette (Eric), Catherine and Margaret and two granddaughters, Kala (Alf) and Catherine Rose; his brother-in-law, Hector MacIsaac, and his sisters-in-law, Kay Rankin and Loretto Macdonald; as well as many loved cousins, nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews.
For his immediate family, words that describe Donald are “unconditional love”, and for family and friends always “a hundred thousand welcomes” and “a good friend, and could he ever tell the stories”.
The family would like to thank the staff at West Park Long Term Care in Toronto for their loving care.
Friends may pay respects at the Kelly Funeral Home, 2313 Carling Ave. (west of Carlingwood), Tuesday, March 30 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Wednesday, March 31, to St Basil’s Church for Mass of Christian Funeral at 10 a.m. Interment Capital Memorial Gardens.

Maria's pride and joy besides her daughter were her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and Linda, whom she thought of as her granddaughter, all of whom she was very proud of. Maria was a member of St. Anargyroi (Anargyree) Greek Orthodox Church. She was a deeply spirited woman. In her younger years she was a member of the Cape Breton Orchestra in which she played the violin and truly enjoyed. She also was a longtime member of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Ladies Auxiliary and was quite proud of the work they were able to accomplish. Maria was also a long-standing member of the Liberal Association for many years. Maria enjoyed travelling which she did extensively with her husband. She was an avid card player as well as a bingo player. She enjoyed her Friday mornings at the Casino with friends. She was the icon of the family with many stories to tell. No one passed through her doors without having at least a cup of tea, many with homemade sweets. One of her favourite pastimes was doing crossword puzzles, as she said this kept your mind young. Her love for life gave all hope and joy. Maria spent many hours knitting clothing for her grandchildren. She often remarked many times that she had nothing to regret in life as she had a very satisfied and happy one and we should not put aside what we wanted to do in life. Go out, enjoy and live it to the fullest. Besides her parents, Smaro and Nicholas, Maria was predeceased by her husband, Christos, brother, George, and sister, Lily.

Rasmussen Donald Edwin Rasmussen inverness Oran 20/11/2013
Donald Edwin Rasmussen, 96, died peacefully, surrounded by his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, on Friday, October 18th, 2013, in Berkeley, California. Don remained active and independent to the end, walking daily, attending exercise classes, and enjoying people.
Don was born in Kolze (now Schiller Park), Illinois, in 1916. His father was a railroad engineer and his mother a teacher. Don attended Elmhurst College and the University of Illinois, where he received a PhD in sociology and met his wife Lore, a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany. In 1942, Don and Lore moved to Alabama, where Don taught sociology and economics and Lore teacher education at Talladega College, a historically black college. Don and Lore became committed "foot soldiers" in the early civil rights movement. During their first year in Alabama they were both jailed by the Birmingham police for eating with the executive director of the Southern Negro Youth Congress in Nancy's Café, a black restaurant. They had violated Birmingham's segregation codes prohibiting blacks and whites from dining together. Don and Lore's remarkable experiences in Alabama were recounted in From Swastika to Jim Crow, a documentary film aired on PBS in 2001. In 2003, Talladega College presented Don and Lore with honorary doctorate degrees for "your contributions to education and your untiring fight to ensure human rights." In the early 1950s, Don and Lore co-directed Circle Pines Center, a cooperative family summer camp and education center in Michigan frequented by social activists from across the U.S. In 1956, they moved with their three sons to Pennsylvania, where Don became headmaster of the Miquon School, a cooperative elementary school. Don co-authored the Basic Reading Series, a linguistic approach to reading for young children still published by McGraw-Hill Education. After leaving Miquon, Don worked with Lore in public education at the Durham Child Development Center in Philadelphia, where he specialized in teacher professional development. Don and Lore moved to Berkeley, California in the mid-1980s. In 1984 and 1986, Don led teams of U.S educators on professional visits to China, where they trained editors of People's Education Press (PEP) on innovative approaches to mathematics and science education.
Don brought the first computers used for educational purposes to PEP and had remained close to PEP leadership and staff. His last trip to China was in 2009 at the age of 93. A committed world adventurer, Don traveled extensively in Central and South America, China, Europe and Scandinavia, making friends, hiking, and contributing to educational projects. From the late 1960s, Don spent most summers in Meat Cove and Bay St. Lawrence on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island. Don is survived by three sons, Peter (and Wei Zhang) in Berkeley, David (and
Tamara) in Bay St. Lawrence, Nova Scotia, and Steven (and Felicia Woytak) in Berkeley; nine grandchildren, Rochelle, Michael, Donald, Aran, Meril, Barbara, Marie, Viki and Scott; and twelve great-grandchildren. Don was predeceased by his wife Lore, sister Maysel Gauron, and grandson Daniel.

Harold was well-known to the community through his daily routine. He would hitch hike into Sydney Mines and go to Reid’s Garage, walk to The Dollar Store, go to the Capital Drug Store, then Nala’s Bakery & Deli, and then to Foodland. At each store he would tease the girls, tell jokes and flirt. His antics would brighten everyone’s day. He would then hitchhike home with his hands full of bags. Harold thrived on these daily interactions. He would arrive back home with a chocolate bar and a small Pepsi for Theresa and fill her in on the latest news. Thank you to all those who provided transportation to Dad over the years and kept him warm, safe and dry.
Theresa was more of a homebody. Her weekly outing was to get her hair done at Greenhill Hair Styling and visit with Georgie and Sherry. She loved blueberry picking and was well-known for her amazing apple and blueberry pies. Theresa and Harold loved dancing and would often go to the Legions. Harold’s love of animals was only exceeded by their love of family.

Reeves Jason Edwin Reeves Cape Breton Post 05/10/2005 Carol MacLean Jason Edwin Reeves, 25, of Sydney, was killed in a tragic hanggliding accident Sunday, Oct. 2, 2005. To say that Jason lived life to the fullest is an understatement. An honours graduate of Riverview High, class of 1998, he was a young man who was deter mined to reach his dreams. His pursuit led him to the four corners of North and South America, from tough jobs in the Alberta oil patch and Inuvik, to hang-glider training in Ontario and Brazil. Jason travelled to learn and focused on his dream of opening his own extreme sports outfitting company. Remarkably, it was Jason's absolute conviction that it could be done here in the Cape Breton Highlands, although he had to work twice as hard to secure the investment needed for a venture on the Island. It is but one small comfort, he died doing something he absolutely loved. Jason was predeceased by his father, Ken (2002). He is survived by his mother, Sheila and sister, Natalie,Sydney, as well as his brother, Kris (Wendy), CFB Trenton, Ont. Jason is also survived by a large and loving extended family, including maternal grandparents, Michael and Mary Wolodka and paternal grandparents, Edwin and Eugenia Reeves.

The Little White Church By Gertrude Reid
There’s a little white church at the top of the hill
Nestled amongst the pines.
Where once was heard God’s Holy Word
And where love and peace entwined.
In summer surrounded by wild flowers
In winter blanketed by snow.
Creates a picturesque setting
For the little church of long ago.
It was built in the year 1837
By the early settlers of the land.
To them it was a labor of love
By strong and willing hands.
You get a feeling of nostalgia
Whenever you enter the door.
You feel God’s Holy presence there,
As in the days of yore.
With its quiet and quaint surroundings
Its unique pews, carved out by hand.
We thank God for the work and dedication
Of settlers to this land.
Many of its members sleep in the churchyard
Beneath the brow of the hill.
Where the spirit of God forever lingers
O’er a plot that is silent and still.
Many folk have left its midst
Leaving many fond memories behind,
But taking with them fond recollections
Of the little white church in the pines.
May it stand like the rock of ages
Steadfast, faithful and sincere.
And may God bless and protect it
Throughout its remaining years.
An anniversary service is held in the church
Each and every year.
To pay tribute to the Scottish Settlers
And the ones they held so dear.
Many changes have taken place
Throughout the realms of time,
But standing steadfast as a memorial
Is the little white church in the pines.

REID, Karen Ann Gillis - It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Karen Reid on Monday, November 20, 2006.

Born February 19, 1958, in New Waterford, Karen was the loving daughter of Evelyn (Gillis) Oliver, Halifax. During the previous five years, Karen resided in Alberta with her family, however, her heart was always at home in Cape Breton, where she grew up with her relatives and dearest friends; a home she enjoyed visiting often. Karen is survived by her devoted husband and best friend, Michael; adoring daughters, Tamara (Nick) Connors and Pamela Gillis, as well as a cherished son, Morgan, all of whom reside in Fort McMurray, Alta. She will be sadly missed by her precious grandchildren, Kaylee, Kiarra and Keigan Connors; sisters, Kathey (Manning) Lee and Kelley (Bernie) Burke, New Waterford; Bonita

Prior to her illness, Karen was employed by the Laborer's Union, Local 92, out of Edmonton, Alta., of which her husband serves as business manager. She was a former employee of both the Credit Union and Scotia Bank in New Waterford. Karen's fondest memories were of time shared laughing with family and close friends. She will be remembered and cherished for her sharp wit and wonderful sense of humour by those who loved her. Karen was a determined, strong soul, and with the onset of her illness, she became an advocate to those also afflicted with cancer, dedicating her time, empathy and support in any way she could. Karen enjoyed traveling and encountering new experiences, both of which she had the opportunity to take pleasure in during recent years. No matter where she journeyed, Cape Breton always remained in her heart, and it is where she will return to
rest. Karen was predeceased by her beloved great-grandmother, Marcella Gillis; great-uncles, Sander and Joe Gillis, and great-aunt, Katherine Gillis. Cremation has taken place. A memorial mass will take place in Edmonton, as well as Mount Carmel Church in New Waterford, at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, New Waterford.

Thomas Kelvin Reid
Born In: Sydney Mines
Passed in: Groves Point
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Thomas Kelvin Reid, 74, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Sydney Mines, Kelvin was a son of the late William and Margaret (Vickers) Reid.
In his early years he spent time in the Navy and then he sailed the Great Lakes. He was lured back to Cape Breton, by the love of his life.
He decided to put down roots to encourage Edie to be his wife. He ventured into a partnership with his brothers-in-law and this was the
beginning of a lifetime of success in having his own service station. He gradually bought his own station and then became owner/operator of
Reid’s Auto Service in Sydney Mines. He worked many long hours and he was dedicated to his customers. He made customers feel that he cared and
he appreciated their business. He was involved in the community and was a member of the Bras d’Or Pensioners Club.
Kelvin was an avid fisherman and he loved to be on the Margaree River. As the season changed to fall he would get ready for hunting season. His
favourite part of hunting was tracking deer.
Kelvin then embraced the snow for his favourite wintertime sport, snowmobiling with his friends. As the snow disappeared and spring began
he started practising his golf swing. He loved the game of golf and would never turn down the opportunity to play.
He had unconditional love for Mom and he treasured her. He loved his five children and he was a wonderful father and grandfather. He will
truly be missed but never forgotten; always in our hearts forever.
Kelvin is survived by his wife Edith; children, Kimberley (David), Sheldon (Lisa, and her son Logan), Trevor (Sonia), Trina (Fred) and Kyle
(Amanda); grandchildren, Hannah Grace, Jack, Benjamin, Ella Rose, Avery, Eric, Roxie, Brayden and Chloe; brothers, William (Heidi) Bryce
(Cynthia), Craig, Milton (Regina), Ian (Tammy) and sister Melinda (Wayne) as well as many nieces and nephews; and a special mention of
Sheldon’s dog Finnigan.
Besides his parents, Kelvin was predeceased by children, Mary and John, sisters, Margaret and Elaine, grandson, Gabriel and sister-in-law, Jackie.
There will be no visitation. Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, Oct. 4 at 2 p.m. at St. Joseph Church, Little Bras d’Or, with Fr. Peter
McLeod officiating.
Donations in Kelvin’s memory may be made to the An Cala Palliative Care Hospice in Sydney, the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Heart and

Anne seldom missed an opportunity to provide one with an update on the wonderful or otherwise  accomplishments of her beloved grand-nieces and nephews, even if a minor exaggeration or embellishment was required. Anne's passing will leave a hole in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. However, we are comforted by knowing Anne is finally at rest. Anne's family would like to extend sincere thanks to those who cared for Anne in her final years, most notably caregiver and friend, Joanna from the great island and the caring staff of the  Dykeland Lodge. A funeral mass and celebration of Anne's life will be held at a later date in Sydney, N.S.  In lieu of flowers donations can be made to any branch of the St. Vincent DePaul Society or a local CWL.   02/10/2010 Mabou, Nova Scotia, Canada

Richards Henry Richards CBP 07/04/2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Henry Matthew Richards on Sunday, April 1, 2012. Loving husband to Marylee. Loving father to Wayne (Monica), Larry (Jackie), Tammy (Tarik); stepfather to Glenn, Brad (Christine) and Craig (Peiqin). Loving grandfather to Kaitlin, Megan, Christian, Luke, Alexandra, Isabell and predeceased by two angels, Matthew and Adam. Beloved brother to Frank, Louis, Wilson, Doreen, Lois and Louise. Henry will be missed by his extended family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Our father, brother, husband is in heaven with friends and family. God allowed him to work till his final night, never spending an entire day in a hospital. Mercifully he came to rest in his bed. Blessed thankfully by Father Edwin. He was a man of unyielding principles, His work ethic was handed down from life as a coal miner's son. He came to Toronto at 17 with nickels, dimes and a dream. Two years later in 58' he would start his business. With an ol' truck and fearless determination he would amass his first fortune by the age of 27 and establish himself as a pioneer in the waste and snow industry. Never one to sit still, these early years would see him garner his pilot and mechanics licence; all the while holding down a full time job as a Toronto Firefighter. Anything our father did he could put his name on it. His "never say never" approach was a throw back to another time. His energy was boundless. He was singular in nature and marched to his own drum. He was a real man in every sense of the word. He was loyal, hard working, responsible and protective of his family. He had a soft side. He knew he was blessed and he really cared about the underdog. People often came to seek council and if you were in trouble he was always there. He used a lot of words, but never the word hate. He had an incredibly forgiving soul and if he loved you he never stopped loving you. He set a standard we can only dream to reach. He taught through example. It will never be the same without him, yet because he was larger than life we understand that he will always be there to guide us with his principle. We love you.

Richardson Dr. David Richardson CBP 13/08/2011
Dr. David Richardson was born in Pitapuram, India, on Nov. 6, 1949 to Baptist Missionary parents, Betty (Burnett) and Joseph Irwin Richardson. On Aug. 2, 2011, in his 61st year, David passed from this life to the next. His early years were spent in India, and then in 1960, his family moved to Vancouver where David graduated from Prince of Wales High School, having been class president. David received his B.A. in Mathematics from U.B.C. [67-71]; M.Sc. in Mathematics from U. of Toronto [71-72] and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Institute Mittage-Leffler (Sweden) [73-77]/U.B.C. [78]. During this time he also completed a Research Fellowship at M.I.T./Harvard [74-75]. David was honoured to receive many academic awards. When David met his future wife, Mary Jane Sievenpiper, his academic direction changed to focus on veterinary medicine and he graduated from W.C.V.M. [78-82]. His interest in mathematics continued as he taught adult education / extension programs, in mathematics and other sciences for the U. of Saskatchewan while simultaneously pursuing his veterinary degree. David enjoyed working in veterinary medicine and he looked at each pet's problem as if it were his own. In addition, he felt it important that the pet's guardian had a comprehensive understanding of the ailment and proposed treatment. David had many hobbies: He was a passionate sailor. He owned and maintained a 1926 R Class yacht and enjoyed sailing in competitions or just for recreational fun. In his younger years he took pleasure in collecting and restoring older British cars, motorcycles and even antique furniture. In later years he developed a passion for golf. He bred and showed English Setters and was instrumental in bringing pet therapy programs to Cape Breton. One of these programs was the development of reading to pets at libraries and elementary schools. David was predeceased by his parents and his mother-in-law, Joyce (Parker) Sievenpiper. He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Mary Jane Sievenpiper; his sister, Elizabeth (Jean) Fares; his father-in-law, Peter Sievenpiper; brother-in-law, Bruce (Cindy) Sievenpiper; sisters-in-law, Beth (Richard) Sievenpiper Jones and Jill (Bruce) Sievenpiper McQuitty; plus numerous nieces and nephews in B.C. and Western Australia.

As a boy he came to Marion Bridge to live with his maternal grandmotherand uncles in the family home where he resided until his death.

A veteran of the Second World War and a member of Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 12, Frank was a local history buff. Despite his seemingly limitless knowledge of his community's past, he taught his children and grandchildren thatthe most important history was their own. Following a war-time posting in St. John's, Frank returned with Mary to the family farm in Mira and began a career with Chappell's Ltd. and Amco Industries. He was a member of St. Columba PresbyterianChurch, Marion Bridge, and a founding member of the Marion Bridge Volunteer Fire Department.

Fraser NORTHSIDE MAN KILLED IN FALL FROM TRUCK RONALD ROBINSON INSTANTLY KILLED 28 YEAR OLD NORTH SYDNEY MAN LOSES LIFE IN TUMBLE FROM MOVING TRUCK AT SYDNEY MINES North Sydney, Aug 10 - In an accident, surrounded by a slight touch of mystery, here today shortly before one o’clock Ronald Robinson, 28 year old North Sydney man lost his life when he toppled from the rear of a moving truck and suffered injuries which caused almost instant death. The truck was owned by Harry Clarke and allegedly driven by Private Robert Simpson, who is a member of the Cape Breton Highlanders. As the truck proceeded along Pond street Robinson was thrown out as a result of the truck hitting a rut in the road, according to the belief of the other occupants. The machine was immediately stopped, and Robinson placed on another truck which was passing by and rushed to Harbor View hospital. Upon examination by Dr A C Gouthro it was found that the victim of the accident was dead when admitted. According to authorities the injured man suffered a fractured skull, a fracture of the right temple, a broken left arm and other injuries. Others in the truck at the time of the accident were in addition to the driver, Murdock MacKinnon, Sydney Mines, who was in the cab with the driver, Gordon Curtis, North Sydney, Harry Clarke, owner, North Sydney, Jerry Allen, Sydney Mines, Lance Corporal John O’Handley, Sydney Mines, all of whom were sitting in the rear of the truck with the deceased at the time of the fatality. Seated On Ties It was stated by police authorities following their investigation of the accident that Robinson had been seated on one of a number of railway ties which were in the back of the truck and in some unknown manner fell off the vehicle. A jury was formed later by Coroner Chief of Police Vincent Hall and reviewed the remains at the funeral parlors of James J Francis. An inquest was held in the town hall this evening. A verdict of accidental death was reached. Robinson, who was well known and liked in his home town of North Sydney, was a son of Mr and Mrs Thos. Robinson, Lorne street. He was a native of Ingonish, Victoria County, and has resided in North Sydney for ten years. In addition to his parents he is survived by his wife, the former Mildred Brian, North Sydney, four sisters and eight brothers.

Luke Rogers
Born In: Neil's Harbour
Passed on: April 5th, 2013
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Luke Rogers on April 5, 2013, at Northside General Hospital surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Neil’s Harbour and raised in North Sydney, he was the youngest son of the late John and Elizabeth (Neal) Rogers.
Luke was self-employed as a trucker in his early years and then 27 years as an employee of Canadian National Railway and Marine Atlantic in North Sydney. Horses were his passion; he owned, trained, and worked with horses from his early youth and later drove and trained harness horses at the North Sydney Racetrack from the late 1930s and continued until the early nineties. The period from the 70s to the 90s were spent racing horses with his son Billy, which occupied many of his retirement years.
Luke and Billy, along with his brother Henry as well as his brother-in-law Joe Pearcey and fellow horseman Alexander MacRae, spent about 20 years racing numerous horses in Sydney, North Sydney, Inverness, and occasionally Charlottetown. These times were very pleasurable and rewarding for him and in 2011 he was given a lifetime achievement award from the Cape Breton Horsemen’s Association.
He was above all a devoted family man who loved his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He and Lorraine took their children on weekly
