MCKIN­NON, Joseph Adrian

Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam -

On April 30, 2017 sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily Joseph Adrian ‘Scrappy’ McKin­non com­pleted this leg of his jour­ney to be­gin a new sea­son free of pains and cares in the arms of his lov­ing fa­ther.

In his time here Adrian touched so many lives with his laugh­ing eyes, deep dim­ples, heart­felt laugh, and con­ta­gious smile through his 30 years as a miner and his pas­sion for bowl­ing, drop­ping any­thing and ev­ery­thing at a mo­ment’s no­tice to help ev­ery­one he felt in need.

His heart was so big it’s sur­pris­ing Glace Bay was big enough to con­tain it, although his love was so ex­pan­sive it was felt across the miles to the Pa­cific and be­yond.

He was the son of the late Moses Coady and He­len Jane McKin­non. Adrian was sur­vived by his wife, Ma­bel El­iz­a­beth (Rus­sell) McKin­non; his daugh­ters, Sharon Rose Acker and Ch­eryl Lynn McKin­non; grand­daugh­ters, Alex­on­dria Krystina Acker and Keileigh El­iz­a­beth Acker; broth­ers, Frankie, Jerry, Arnold, Bernie (pre-de­ceased, Coady, Ron­nie) Marie, Carme, Anna, Joyce, Cathy, He­len (pre­de­ceased, Claire).

Visi­ta­tion will be held on Mon­day, May 8 at 6 to 9 p.m. at Pat­ten’s Fu­neral Home with fu­neral ser­vices to be held at St. Joseph’s in Re­serve Mines on Tues­day, May 9 at 11 a.m. with a re­cep­tion to fol­low at the Sal­va­tion Army at 12:30 p.m.
