We re­gret to an­nounce the pass­ing of Ed­mund Cap­stick, 90, on Dec. 17, 2017, at Buchanan Memo­rial Med­i­cal Cen­tre in Neil’s Har­bour, sur­rounded by fam­ily and friends. Born in Cap­stick on Dec. 27, 1926, he was the son of the late An­nie Mae Cap­stick. He was a mem­ber of St. Mar­garet’s Par­ish in Bay St. Lawrence. Eb­bie was a man that knew how to en­joy life. He was well known from Cape Bre­ton to Cal­gary for his kind and for­giv­ing na­ture. He had time for ev­ery­one: fam­ily, friends, and strangers. He loved fid­dle mu­sic, trucks, sweets, and cold beer. He also en­joyed his time in the woods. He was hap­pi­est when he was busy, al­ways put­ter­ing. On week­ends, his treat was a trip to the Do­ry­man, where you might see him even do­ing a step of his own. In his later years, he lived hap­pily at High­land Manor where he much ap­pre­ci­ated the care the staff showed him. He is sur­vived by his son, Eddie Haw­ley, and grand­chil­dren, Jesse and Bai­ley Haw­ley, as well as broth­ers, John Dan Jobes and Wil­liam Vanechuk. Eb­bie was also a lov­ing mem­ber of the Wil­liams fam­ily, loved and missed by Dar­rell, Jo­ce­lyn, Ge­or­gia and Meadow. He was pre­de­ceased by sis­ters, Eve­lyn (Wil­liams), Mary Alice (Mac­don­ald), Clara (Plan­etta), Lucy (Hoysa), Christina (Perry), and broth­ers, Fred­die, Johnny, Thomas and Mor­ris. A fu­neral Mass was held with Fr. Lazarus Guria of­fi­ci­at­ing. The burial will take place at a later date. Words of com­fort may be for­warded to his fam­ily at www.jmjobesfu­ner­al­home.com.
