The Amherst News - - OBITUARIES -

It is with sad­ness that the fam­ily an­nounces the pass­ing of Samuel Sey­mour Skin­ner Sr., age 92, of Amherst, Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 31st 2017, at the Cum­ber­land Re­gional Health Care Cen­tre, Amherst.

Born in Amherst, he was the son of the late Samuel S Skin­ner and Bertha Mae Don­caster.

His early life was spent in Wind­sor, On­tario where he was em­ployed with Loblaws and the On­tario School Board. He was an avid out­doors­man, par­tic­u­larly when it came to fish­ing, a skill he shared with many. Fol­low­ing the death of his dear Flo, he re­turned to Amherst where he re­con­nected with many friends at the ball­field, sta­dium, roots, and his daily walk around town. He was known for his sense of hu­mor and his pos­i­tive out­look on life. As an avid sports fan, he was par­tic­u­larly proud of the re­cent draft­ing of his youngest grand­son to NHL.

Be­sides his par­ents he was pre­de­ceased by his wife Florence (Halak), sis­ter Mary Miller (late Charles), and broth­ers Harry (Pa­tri­cia) and G. Syd­ney (Mar­jorie).

He will be lov­ingly re­mem­bered by his son Samuel S (Su­san), grand­chil­dren Stephen, Sarah, Scott, San­dra, Sharon, Shan­non, Sa­man­tha, Shel­don, Stuart, eleven great grand­chil­dren, sis­ter Betty Boc­ci­o­letti (late Daniel) as well as many nieces and neph­ews who loved him dearly.

Visi­ta­tion was held on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2nd from 11 AM un­til the time of the ser­vice at 1 PM, at Camp­bells Fu­neral Home, 98 Church Street 902-667-9906. In­ter­ment will take place im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the ser­vice at the Amherst Ceme­tery, with a re­cep­tion to fol­low, also at Camp­bells.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions can be made to the Cum­ber­land Hos­pice So­ci­ety.

On­line con­do­lences can be made at­bell­, or by vis­it­ing the Camp­bells Face­book page.

To love and be loved, is never to die.

Cheers and loud laugh­ter to all!
