MCCARDLE Leonard Fred­er­ick

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - OBITUARIES -

It is with love and sad­ness, that the fam­ily of Leonard Fred­er­ick McCardle an­nounce his peace­ful pass­ing at Prince County Hos­pi­tal, Summerside, P.E.I. on Tues­day, Au­gust 1st, 2017. Leonard was born in Chel­ton, P.E.I. and lived there un­til his death. Born to the late Daniel and Evan­ge­line (nee Cahill) McCardle, as a young boy, Leonard worked the fam­ily farm with his par­ents and eight broth­ers and sis­ters. This is where his love of the land, ocean and Chel­ton be­came part of his fi­bre. Leonard had a long ca­reer with Ma­rine At­lantic, work­ing on the fer­ries between Bor­den P.E.I and Cape Tor­men­tine, N.B. Dur­ing re­tire­ment, Leonard ful­filled his dream to be a world trav­eler, spend­ing time in places such as Rus­sia, Eng­land, Ger­many, Panama Canal, and the Mid­dle East where he im­mersed him­self in the cul­ture of each city he vis­ited. Known for his strong faith in God, his nightly walks through­out Chel­ton and Fern­wood and his love of swim­ming daily off Chel­ton Beach, Leonard was well-known through­out the com­mu­nity. Sur­vived by his sis­ters, Tizie Zinck and An­nie Cough­lan, brother David (Mary) McCardle, sis­ter-in-law Au­drey McCardle and nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews. Pre­de­ceased by his par­ents, broth­ers and sis­ters Pauline (Ger­ald) Sheridan, Vir­ginia McCardle, Ge­orge McCardle, John McCardle and Al­bert (Hazel) McCardle, broth­ers in-law Stan Zinck and Ter­ence Cough­lan. By per­sonal re­quest, no vis­i­ta­tion will oc­cur and a pri­vate fu­neral ser­vice will be held. In­ter­ment to take place in St. Pe­ter’s Ro­man Catholic Ceme­tery, Seven Mile Bay, P.E.I. The fam­ily would like to ex­press their sin­cere ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the won­der­ful care and at­ten­tion by Prince County Hos­pi­tal. If de­sired, memo­rial do­na­tions may be made, in Leonard’s mem­ory, to St. Pe­ter’s Ro­man Catholic Ceme­tery, Seven Mile Bay, P.E.I. Condolences can be emailed to ep­fu­neral@east­link.ca. Ar­range­ments en­trusted to the East Prince Fu­neral Home, Summerside, P.E.I.
