Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam -

It is with bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the peaceful pass­ing of Robert Jew­ells, age 76, on Thurs­day, May 11, 2017 at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hospi­tal af­ter a lengthy ill­ness.

Born in Glace Bay and a for­mer res­i­dent of Port Morien, he was the el­dest son of Robert Harold and Su­san (MacDon­ald) Jew­ells.

Robert was a de­voted hus­band, fa­ther and grand­fa­ther who loved his fam­ily dearly. He re­tired from Devco Ma­chine Shop af­ter many years of ser­vice. He en­joyed spend­ing time with fam­ily and friends, read­ing and camp­ing. His love for camp­ing was passed on to his chil­dren; even dur­ing his ill­ness he en­joyed life and al­ways found a way to have a good time.

Robert is sur­vived by his wife of 52 years, Eileen (Lind); his daugh­ter, Roberta (Glen) Parsons; his son, Ray­mond (Ju­dith) Jew­ells; daugh­ter-in-law, Tanya Jew­ells; grand­chil­dren, Ryan (Car­rie), Re­becca Parsons, Ben and Amanda Jew­ells. Bobby will also be sadly missed by his de­voted pet dog, Raven. His grand­chil­dren were his pride and joy and he kept in touch with each of them on a daily ba­sis.
