MCISAAC, Daniel Ray­mond ‘Dan’

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM/GAMES -

It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Daniel Ray­mond McIsaac, 81 of Glace Bay.

Dan passed away sud­denly on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 26, 2017 at the Glace Bay Hos­pi­tal. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Born on De­cem­ber 5, 1935 in New Water­ford, he was the son of the late Al­lan and Flora (MacDougall) McIsaac.

Dan worked for 25 years with the Nova Scotia Depart­ment of Hous­ing fol­lowed by 12 years with Cold­well Banker as a real es­tate agent. A man with great de­vo­tion to his fam­ily, he spent nearly 50 summers camp­ing with his fam­ily and friends at the Ben Eoin Beach Camp­ground. Very proud of his Scot­tish Her­itage, Dan en­joyed many years as the Chief of the New Water­ford Gaelic So­ci­ety, sang with a Cape Bre­ton based Gaelic Choir, at­tended Gaelic classes at Cape Bre­ton Univer­sity and trav­elled to Scot­land on two oc­ca­sions.

An avid sports fan, Dan could often be found fol­low­ing his fa­vorite Bos­ton based sports teams. He was a for­mer mem­ber of the Knights of Colum­bus, served on the St. Anne’s Church Par­ish Coun­cil and was a ham ra­dio op­er­a­tor (han­dle VE1 CBL).

Dan is sur­vived by his wife of 60 years, An­nette (Legere), Glace Bay; his daugh­ter, Deb­bie (Dar­rell) MacKin­non, Glace Bay; grand­son, Daniel MacKin­non, Kentville; sis­ter, Carmie (Bil­lie) Sehl, New Brunswick; sis­ter, Neila (Joseph) Nu­gent, Lin­gan; brother, Mel (Linda) McIsaac, Truro; sis­ter, Heather Ka­vanaugh, New Water­ford.

Be­sides his par­ents, Dan was pre­de­ceased by his brother, Mel (in in­fancy) and brother-in-law, Bobby Ka­vanaugh.

There will be no visi­ta­tion. Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the di­rec­tion of V.J. McGil­livray Funeral Home, 16 Re­serve Street, Glace Bay. The funeral mass, of­fi­ci­ated by Fr. Leo Boone is Thurs­day at 10 a.m. in St. Anne’s Church, Glace Bay fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion in the foyer.

Do­na­tions in mem­ory of Dan may be made to the Nova Scotia Heart & Stroke Foun­da­tion. On­line con­do­lences to the fam­ily can be ex­pressed at: www.vjm­cgillivray.ca.
