PYE, Charles

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

We, the fam­ily of Charles Pye, 92, re­gret to an­nounce his peace­ful pass­ing on Wed­nes­day, July 22, 2015, at the Cove Guest Home, Syd­ney .

Born in Syd­ney Mines on March 19, 1923, he was the son of the late Herbert and Han­nah (An­tle) Pye.

On De­cem­ber 1947 he mar­ried the love of his life the for­mer Dorothy McDougall.

Our fa­ther was a strong, proud but hum­ble man. He will be re­mem­bered for his quick wit and sense of hu­mour. He was a great out­doors man who en­joyed hunt­ing and fish­ing with his fam­ily and friends. Our Mother packed many lunches for trips in to the Bells Lakes and the sto­ries that came back from these overnight ad­ven­tures brought many a smile to the faces of those for­tu­nate enough to hear them. You al­ways knew it would be a good one when it started with that spe­cial smile and a twin­kle in his eye. Dad was first and fore­most a fam­ily man who loved and cared for his fam­ily. We know we are blessed to have had him as a fa­ther.

Charles was a mem­ber of Trin­ity Angli­can Church, Syd­ney Mines. He was em­ployed with the Cape Bre­ton De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion un­til his re­tire­ment.

Charles is sur­vived by daugh­ters Char­lene (Noel) Lan­non, Truro, Va­lerie (Frank) Koz­era,Ot­tawa, Corinne Grif­fin, Lower Sackville, and An­gela (Greg) Knott, Dalem Lake, 14 grand­chil­dren and 16 great-grand­chil­dren; sis­ters An­nie Snow and Alleine Dove, Syd­ney Mines and Jean (Ian) Gil­lan, On­tario and many nieces and neph­ews and cousins.

Be­sides his par­ents, he was pre­de­ceased by his wife, Dorothy (MacDougall), sons Wes­ley and Eric, grand­son Char­lie, sis­ter Sarah Belle, and broth­ers John, Fred, Leonard, Eli­jah, Ana­nias and Clarence.

The fam­ily would like to thank the Cove Guest Home for the won­der­ful care that they pro­vided to their fa­ther.

Vis­i­ta­tion for the late Charles Pye will be held in the J.M. Jobes Fu­neral Home, 635 Main St., Syd­ney Mines on Sun­day, July 26, 2015 from 2-4 p.m. A cel­e­bra­tion of his life will take place on Mon­day at 10 a.m. in Trin­ity Angli­can Church, Syd­ney Mines with Rev. Stacey Le­Moine of­fi­ci­at­ing. A re­cep­tion will be held in Grandy Hall, fol­low­ing the ser­vice. The burial will be in Brook­side Ceme­tery.
