ROMEO, John David

Syd­ney Mines/Louis­bourg

Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam -

It is with great sad­ness and bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our hus­band, fa­ther, son, brother, un­cle and friend, John David Romeo, 55, on Wed­nes­day, May 17, 2017, at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hospi­tal, sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily.

Born in Syd­ney Mines on Oc­to­ber 22, 1961, John was the son of Madonna (McIn­tyre) Romeo and the late Lewis James Romeo.

John will be sadly missed by his lov­ing wife of 25 years, Belinda (Dun­phy) Romeo, and his sons, Ryan (Jackie) and David. He also leaves be­hind his mother, Madonna; brother, Dale; sis­ters, Anne (John) Evans, Donna (Gary) Cox, Bev­erly (Rick) Beehler, and Deb­bie (Jim) Gwinn; also many nieces; neph­ews; cousins; fa­ther-in-law, Percy Dun­phy (Mae O’Con­nor); and his great friend, Brian O’Toole.

Be­sides his fa­ther, Lewis, he was pre­de­ceased by his ma­ter­nal grand­par­ents, John and Hilda McIn­tyre, and pa­ter­nal grand­par­ents, Peter and Anne Romeo.

There will be no vis­i­ta­tion. Cre­ma­tion has taken place.

The fu­neral mass will be held on Satur­day, May 20, 2017, at 10 a.m. in Holy Fam­ily Church, Syd­ney Mines, with John’s cousin, Fr. Ray Hunt­ley of­fi­ci­at­ing. A re­cep­tion will take place in the parish hall, fol­low­ing the ser­vice.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions in John’s me­mory may be made to the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hospi­tal Cancer Cen­ter, the Pal­lia­tive Care Unit at the Re­gional Hospi­tal, or a char­ity of your choice.

Spe­cial thanks to Dr. Khadadad, Dr. Lori Wood, Dr. D’Intino, Eleanor Cooke, Ken­dra Dill, and the en­tire pal­lia­tive care team.
