MIL­LEY, Al­bert Stan­ford - “Daddy Al”

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

It is with deep­est sad­ness that we re­gret­fully an­nounce the pass­ing of our beloved fa­ther, brother, grand­fa­ther, great­grand­fa­ther, un­cle and friend. “Daddy Al” passed away at the age of 90, sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily, Sun­day, July 26, 2015, at the North­side Com­mu­nity Guest Home.

Al worked for the Do­min­ion Coal Com­pany and Devco, in var­i­ous coal mines, un­til his re­tire­ment. He also worked for some time as a lob­ster fish­er­man. He en­joyed fish­ing, hunt­ing and darts, but his great­est joy was spend­ing time with his lov­ing fam­ily. Al was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan and was a past mem­ber of the Tower Road Fire Hall.

Al is sur­vived by his three daugh­ters, Donna (Kenny) Cun­ning­ham, Dianne (Doug) Cun­ning­ham, Dolores (Keith) Ni­coll; his son, Ricky (Chris); 14 grand­chil­dren, 27 great-grand­chil­dren, as well as many nieces and neph­ews. He is also sur­vived by sis­ter, Abby Au­coin and brother, Ken.

Be­sides his par­ents, Al was pre­de­ceased by his wife, Molly (Yates); sons, Al­bert in in­fancy and Dar­ren; broth­ers, Fred, John, Wil­liam, Ab­solum, Hu­bert, James, Thomas, Fran­cis and re­cently David; sis­ters, Mar­garet, Mary, Hazel, Naomi and Janet.

In hon­our­ing dad’s wishes, cre­ma­tion has taken place. Vis­i­ta­tion will be held Fri­day, July 31st, 7-9 p.m. in V.J. McGil­livray Fu­neral Home, 16 Re­serve St., Glace Bay. A fu­neral ser­vice, of­fi­ci­ated by Rev. Bob Biggar will be held 11 a.m., Satur­day, Aug. 1, 2015, in the fu­neral home chapel. A re­cep­tion will fol­low the ser­vice where ev­ery­one is in­vited to meet with the fam­ily. In­ter­ment will take place in St. Luke’s United Ceme­tery, Donkin, at a later date.

As an ex­pres­sion of sym­pa­thy for Al, me­mo­rial do­na­tions in his mem­ory may be made to a char­ity of one’s choice.

Online con­do­lences to the fam­ily may be ex­pressed at: www.vjm­cgillivray.ca.
