MACKAY, William "Fulton"
Age 93, New Glasgow, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at home, with his daughters by his side. Born in New Glasgow, he was a son of the late Alexander and Ida (Ross) Mackay. Fulton was a faithful member of St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church, New Glasgow. He had been employed with the former Maritime Steel and Foundries Limited for 45 years. In his younger years, Fulton played baseball, broomball, hockey and was an avid bowler. He was an avid Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Maple Leafs fan. Fulton enjoyed fishing, woodworking and working around the yard. He and his late wife, Colleen, provided care to many foster children over the years.
