NU­GENT, Shane Re­nard

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -


It is with very heavy hearts we an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of Shane Re­nard Nu­gent, 49, on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 3, 2017, in Fort McMur­ray, Al­berta.

Shane was born July 3, 1967, in Val Cartier, Que­bec, but spent the ma­jor­ity of his life in Florence, Nova Sco­tia.

He was the son of the late Thomas and Mary Nu­gent.

Shane grad­u­ated from Memo­rial High School with a trade in heavy-duty me­chan­ics. His love of au­to­mo­tives and ev­ery­thing me­chan­i­cal lead him to a suc­cess­ful ca­reer as a rig man­ager. He worked for 15 years in the Al­berta oil sands, mainly with Cal­mena En­ergy Ser­vices. He quickly rose to suc­cess at Cal­mena, win­ning rig of the year two years in a row. He was very proud of his loyal crew and the ac­com­plish­ments they were able to achieve. Al­though Shane spent most of his drilling ca­reer in Al­berta, he also ven­tured over­seas to Kenya, where he worked hard do­ing geo­ther­mal wells. He was no stranger to the east coast way of life as well; dur­ing his younger years he sailed all over do­ing deepsea fish­ing to sup­port his fam­ily. Shane al­ways put his fam­ily first, even though pro­vid­ing for them meant he had to be away.

Some of Shane’s fa­vorite pas­times were walk­ing around Florence beach with his grand­chil­dren, camp­ing with fam­ily, four wheel­ing with his friends, and his evening drives with his “Sher­ry­berry”.

Shane Nu­gent was a won­der­ful man who touched the hearts of ev­ery one he met; his kind­ness and gen­eros­ity were like no other. We will all miss his sense of hu­mor that could fill a room and put a smile on any­one’s face.

He is sur­vived by his chil­dren, Shane, Shayna (Colten), Tyler (Gabby) and Ryan; his fi­ancé and love of his life, Sherry Lawrence; mother of his chil­dren, Laura Leah; brother, Thomas; sis­ters, Valerie (Pat), Deb­bie (Henny) and Thelma (Mike).

His mem­ory will be pre­served in the hearts of the peo­ple he loved most, his grand­chil­dren, Pey­ton, Len­non, Paysley, Bray­den, Aubree and Greyson.

Vis­i­ta­tion for Shane Nu­gent will be held in J. M. Jobes Fu­neral Home, 635 Main St., Syd­ney Mines, on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 22, 2017, from 2-4 p.m.

A cel­e­bra­tion of his life will take place at 4 p.m. in the fu­neral home.

Do­na­tions in Shane’s mem­ory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion.

Words of com­fort may be for­warded to his fam­ily at www. jmjobesfu­ner­al­
