It is with great sad­ness and bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Ge­orge David "Wendell" Mackin­non, 79 of Smelt Brook, NS. Sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily, Wendell died of a bro­ken heart af­ter the loss of his dear wife, Marie, just one month ago. Born in Neil’s Har­bour on Feb. 19, 1939 to the late Ge­orge Joseph and Wil­lena Eliz­a­beth (Fitzger­ald) Mackin­non, Wendell en­joyed grow­ing up with his broth­ers and sis­ters in a large lov­ing fam­ily. He met and mar­ried the love of his life, Marie Mackin­non, and to­gether they raised five chil­dren - Wendell's great­est joys. Dur­ing his work­ing years, Wendell ob­tained a weld­ing ticket, he worked as a labourer at Wreck Cove, but spent most of his years lob­ster fish­ing with his love Marie, by his side. Wendell made great friends wher­ever he went and al­ways had a kind word for ev­ery­one (ex­cept politi­cians lol). He loved to play cards (he al­ways wanted to win) and his favourite game was horse­shoes with friends and fam­ily on a fine sum­mer day. He was an avid hockey fan and loved watch­ing the games with his fam­ily and friends all around.
