COATES, Carl Ba­con

Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

Carl Ba­con Coates died peace­fully in his sleep in Hal­i­fax on Septem­ber 24, 2018, at the age of 86 and cre­ma­tion has taken place.

Son of the late Orin and Lois (Fixott) Coates. Carl was pre­de­ceased by an older brother, Orin aka Buster and sur­vived by younger, sis­ter Lois (Grant) Bag­nell.

Carl was pre­de­ceased by his first wife, Mar­garet (Prosser) with whom he had two daugh­ters, Siob­han (Gra­ham Street) Coates, and Patsy (Lars) MacDon­ald. Carl was the proud grand­fa­ther of his grand­son, Paddy MacDon­ald.

His fi­nal in­struc­tions were clear and Carl’s daugh­ters, along with their spouses and grand­son, will hon­our them and sprin­kle his ashes with Carl Coates panache into the Bras d’ Or Lakes at Mar­ble Moun­tain on his beloved Cape Bre­ton Is­land. Carl’s fi­nal wish was that those left be­hind en­joy their lives to the fullest as he had and share a glass of wine with loved ones and think of him kindly.
