“Go rest high on that moun­tain, Son your work here is done”.

We re­gret to an­nounce the pass­ing of life­long Whit­ney Pier res­i­dent, Charles Lor­way Gosse Sr., 57, who passed peace­fully at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal, Syd­ney, on Mon­day, June 22, 2015, sur­rounded by lov­ing friends and fam­ily.

A writer, en­tre­pre­neur, sto­ry­teller and am­a­teur math­e­ma­ti­cian (the CB Post’s Satur­day puzzles were never any match), he is per­haps best known for his “Good Dear Good” Gosse’s Sauces, a sta­ple on wings across the Pier.

Those most sad­dened by his pass­ing in­clude his beloved mother, Enid; brother and suc­cess­ful en­tre­pre­neur, Wil­liam ‘Bill’ and wife, Kathy; brother, fel­low sto­ry­teller and for­mer MLA, Gordie Jr. and wife, Sue; nieces, Chan­dell, Meghan and neph­ews, Gordie and Daniel. As proud as he was of his broth­ers’ and their fam­i­lies’ ac­com­plish­ments, his sons, who he lov­ingly raised with their mother, Ce­celia Gosse, were his real joy. Dar­ren, ac­com­plished diesel me­chanic, along with part­ner, Carolyn, and daugh­ter, Lilly Grace, Lor­way Jr., lawyer, along with his wife, Chris­tine, and Ryan, tal­ented lo­cal gui­tarist and elec­tri­cian, will mark their fa­ther’s pass­ing with lob­ster and tara­bish, two of Lor­way’s favourite pas­times.

He was pre­de­ceased by his fa­ther, Gor­don Sr., who Lor­way is ea­ger to be re­united with.

Lor­way leaves us with many great mem­o­ries of fish­ing, home­cook­ing, off-colour jokes and mostly, time spent with fam­ily. “Noth­ing else mat­ters,” he would of­ten wisely re­mind us.

Per Lor­way’s wishes, cre­ma­tion has taken place and fu­neral mass will be cel­e­brated on Fri­day, July 10, 2015, at 10 a.m. in Holy Redeemer Church with Fr. Paul Mur­phy of­fi­ci­at­ing. Fol­low­ing the mass, re­cep­tion will be held at the Pier Com­mu­nity Fu­neral Home. In­ter­ment will take place in Res­ur­rec­tion Ceme­tery, Syd­ney Forks.

In lieu of flow­ers and do­na­tions, lis­ten to your favourite Bob Seger tune and tell your loved ones what they mean to you.

Fu­neral ar­range­ments are en­trusted to the care and di­rec­tion of Pier Com­mu­nity Fu­neral Home.

Online con­do­lences may be for­warded to the fam­ily at www.pier­fu­ner­al­

We wish we could see the an­gels’ faces when they hear his sil­ver tongue.
