SMITH, Wel­don

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

It is with heavy hearts that we the fam­ily an­nounce the pass­ing of Wel­don Smith on Fe­bru­ary 6, 2017 at the Glace Bay Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal with lov­ing fam­ily at his side.

Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Wil­liam and Mary Smith.

Wel­don was a mem­ber of St. Mary’s Angli­can Church. He worked with Devco for over 30 years both in the coal mines and at the wash-plant.

Wel­don was a sports fan who loved to skate. He en­joyed be­ing out walk­ing and was a handy­man who al­ways had a few projects on the go.

Sur­viv­ing are his lov­ing wife Anna, son Paul, his twin brother Shel­don from Scotch­town and many nieces and neph­ews.

Be­sides his par­ents, he was pre­de­ceased by his old­est son, Ricky, brother, Eric and sis­ters, Beu­lah and Sylvia.

In fol­low­ing Wel­don’s wishes, there will be a pri­vate grave­side ser­vice at a later date un­der the care and di­rec­tion of Pat­ten Fu­neral Home.

“Those we love don’t go away; they walk be­side us ev­ery day.”
