Fu­neral ser­vice for the late Robert Leo O’leary, 64, Canso, Guys­bor­ough County, was held Oc­to­ber 6 in Canso United Bap­tist Church with Rev­erend David Wheeler of­fi­ci­at­ing. Burial will be at a later date.

Mr. O’leary died Oc­to­ber 1, 2018, in East­ern Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal, Canso.

He was a son of Win­nifred Gertrude Cluney and Os­borne Pa­trick O’leary, Queen­sport. He was a hard worker and tried his hand at many dif­fer­ent jobs. He fished in the sum­mers with his fa­ther and other fish­er­men. He man­aged the re­frig­er­a­tion plant at Canso Seafood’s for many years. Due to ill­ness, he had to re­tire from there, at which time he opened O’leary’s Small En­gine Re­pairs in his back­yard. He en­joyed spend­ing count­less hours at his job. He was mostly self-taught, un­til tak­ing an on-line cor­re­spon­dence course. Upon com­ple­tion, his dream came true and many peo­ple fre­quented his shop over the past 20 years.

He is sur­vived by his wife of 38 years, Au­drey; brother, Wayne (Pauline); four sis­ters, Darlene (Ian), Max­ine (Kevin P), Donna (Josh), Deb­bie (Kevin); many nieces and neph­ews, cousins, aunts and un­cles.

Me­mo­rial dona­tions may be made to the Canso United Bap­tist Church or to a char­ity of choice.
