Al­bert Bridge

It is with bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of a dear hus­band, fa­ther, grand­fa­ther, and great­grand­fa­ther, Dun­can Dou­glas Rose, on July 26, 2015, at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal, Syd­ney, with his lov­ing fam­ily by his side.

Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late John and El­iz­a­beth (Steven­son) Rose. Dun­can made a ca­reer in the con­crete con­struc­tion field and was em­ployed by Jack Bon­a­parte Con­struc­tion. He was well known for hav­ing the most level, pol­ished con­crete floors in all Cape Bre­ton. “If you dropped a mar­ble — it wouldn’t roll; sort to speak.” Golf was a sport he en­joyed and be­longed to a club while in On­tario. Dun­can en­joyed play­ing his guitar; es­pe­cially to his three girls. He and his wife, Lilo, cel­e­brated their 50th an­niver­sary a month prior to his death. Joy for Dun­can was fam­ily and laugh­ter, and right to the end he was not ready to leave.

Left to mourn are his wife, the for­mer Lieselotte ‘Lilo, Liz’ Re­ichert; three daugh­ters, Mon­ica (Randy), Deb­bie (Bobby) and Jen­nifer (Ryan). Also sur­viv­ing are his grand­chil­dren, Ryle ( Jill), JD (Ni­cole), Tessa, Amado, Adia, Sa­muel, Macklen and Aden; great-grand­chil­dren, Miah and To­bias; nephew, John (Tracey, chil­dren Sarah and Hay­ley), John was the only son he knew. Dun­can was also sur­vived my many nieces and neph­ews.

Be­sides his par­ents, Dun­can was pre­de­ceased by his sis­ter, Betty; broth­ers, John, Billy, Bobby, David and Mur­ray. Dun­can was the last sur­viv­ing mem­ber of his im­me­di­ate fam­ily.

A grave­side ser­vice will take place at 11 a.m., Thurs­day, in For­est Haven Me­mo­rial Gar­dens, Rev Sheldon Chant of­fi­ci­at­ing.

Me­mo­rial do­na­tions in mem­ory of Dun­can may be made to An Cala, pal­lia­tive care in Cape Bre­ton.
