It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of Roger Al­lan “Butch” Reid on Tues­day, Novem­ber 6, 2018, at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal, Syd­ney.

Born April 27, 1939, in Syd­ney, Roger was the son of the late John “Jack” and Eileen (Goodale) Reid.

In 1967, Roger be­came a Char­tered Ac­coun­tant, work­ing for Doane Raymond, which even­tu­ally be­came Grant Thorn­ton, for over 30 years. He would even­tu­ally be­come a se­nior part­ner with Grant Thorn­ton, Syd­ney, re­tir­ing in 1994, at the age of 55. Roger thor­oughly en­joyed re­tire­ment and was very busy with his many hob­bies. Pauline and he en­joyed many ac­tiv­i­ties such as, hik­ing, cross coun­try and down­hill ski­ing, as well as golf­ing and skat­ing. And, he loved spend­ing time in the yard. Roger and Pauline also had many won­der­ful trips to Florida with their many great friends. In his ear­lier years, he loved to curl and was an ac­tive mem­ber of the Ro­tary Club.

From the time he was a child, Roger loved the out­doors and of­ten told sto­ries of his hunt­ing and fish­ing trips, whether they be on the Mar­ga­ree, in Gabarus, the Cape Bre­ton High­lands, New­found­land or New Brunswick, and, he was of­ten, not al­ways, but of­ten, dif­fi­cult to beat when play­ing cards.
