Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM/RELIGION -

66, St. Mar­garet’s Vil­lage

It’s with our deep­est sor­row that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our beloved Bert who left us on Feb. 20, 2017 at Buchanan Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal.

Bert was the mid­dle child of his pre­de­ceased par­ents, Gino Cesaroni & Ca­te­rina Chicco.

Born in Bel­gium on March 6, 1950 he moved with his fam­ily to Toronto in 1958 and to St. Mar­garet’s Vil­lage, Cape Bre­ton with his wife & three chil­dren in 1981.

Bert fought a long bat­tle with Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis & other ob­sta­cles but like his days be­fore be­ing di­ag­nosed with MS at age 26, he fought the good fight. He of­ten spoke stories of his health­ier days es­pe­cially his time work­ing as a bouncer in Toronto at Bev­erly Hills, he never backed down from any­one or any­thing & al­ways spoke his mind be­fore and af­ter his di­ag­no­sis of MS. Bert was able to strike up a con­ver­sa­tion with any­one no mat­ter if he knew them or not & he en­joyed try­ing his luck at the casino or reel­ing in a fish. He also en­joyed watch­ing his old westerns or lis­ten­ing to his fa­vorite Ea­gles or Neil Di­a­mond songs. He was very proud of the home he put a lot of work into for his wife & chil­dren upon mov­ing to St. Mar­garet’s Vil­lage & could of­ten be seen tak­ing in the great view.

Bert will al­ways be re­mem­bered for his re­al­ness, his will power, his strength & his love for his en­tire fam­ily. He leaves be­hind his lov­ing wife, Elaine who stood by his side through good & bad; his daugh­ter, Carolyn (Al­lan) and chil­dren, Vic­to­ria, Cas­san­dra, Ca­tryna & Cameron and his other daugh­ter, Cathy (Si­mon) and chil­dren, Vanessa & Wil­liam, and his son, Shane (Patti) and child, Vi­enna.

Bert was very proud of & loved all his chil­dren, grand­chil­dren & four great-grand­chil­dren. Also he leaves be­hind his brother, Carlo & his five sis­ters, Anna (Steve), Glo­ria (Bob), Na­dia, Mary & Tella (Jim) whom he wished he lived closer to & loved dearly.

Cel­e­bra­tion of Bert’s life & burial of his cre­mated re­mains will be an­nounced at a later date. Al­ways in our me­mories & for­ever loved; rest easy Bert & God bless you.
