MACLEOD, Charles G.

New Water­ford

Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the peace­ful pass­ing of our dad, Char­lie Macleod, on Wed­nes­day, May 24, 2017 at home with his wife by his side.

In his early life, he worked as a coal miner for 30 plus years. Char­lie was in­volved in lo­cal pol­i­tics and was a town coun­cil­lor in New Water­ford. He was also in­volved in many other or­ga­ni­za­tions in­clud­ing St. Vin­cent de Paul, St. Michaels Men’s Club and was a life -time mem­ber of the K.O.C, New Water­ford. In his younger years, he en­joyed horse rac­ing, boxing, and base­ball. Char­lie loved to play gui­tar and sing. He al­ways sur­rounded him­self with mu­sic and friends. Our dad loved to laugh, joke and make ev­ery­one smile. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. As chil­dren grow­ing up, we were very for­tu­nate to have our very own “Santa Claus”. He would dress up and drive around town on the fire truck mak­ing all who saw him happy and ex­cited with his huge belly laugh of ‘Ho Ho Ho’.

He leaves be­hind a lov­ing wife of 63 years Toot­sie, six lov­ing chil­dren, Deb­bie (Lee), Char­lene (Jack), Greg (Ray­lene), Dar­ren (Jill), Gail (An­thony), Chuckie (Pauline); eight grand­chil­dren and nine great- grand­chil­dren.

In fol­low­ing with Dads wishes, there will be no vis­i­ta­tion. Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the care and di­rec­tion of V.J. McGil­livray fu­neral Home, 380 Smith Street, New Water­ford. A fu­neral mass of cel­e­bra­tion will take place Mon­day, May 28 at 10 a.m. in the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Av­enue, New Water­ford, with Fr. Ray Hunt­ley of­fi­ci­at­ing with a lun­cheon to fol­low at the K.O.C. Hall, Plum­mer Av­enue, New Water­ford.

Do­na­tions in his mem­ory may be made to the Kid­ney Foun­da­tion. On­line ex­pres­sions of sym­pa­thy may be sent to the fam­ily at: www.vjm­cgillivray.ca.
