It is with heavy hearts that we, the family of Peter William Buchanan, age 72, announce his passing on Nov. 17, 2018, at Buchanan Memorial Hospital in Neil’s Harbour.
Born in Black Point on Dec. 26, 1945, Peter was the son of the late William and Marcella (Mackinnon) Buchanan. Peter traveled and lived in Hamilton for many years, and later moved back to Cape Breton, where he made a living fishing in his hometown of St. Margaret’s Village. He also enjoyed playing 45’s and cribbage. Peter is survived by his daughter, Angel (Archibald); Angel’s mom, Carmelita; his grandchildren, Kayla (Winston), Kelsey (Martin), Nathan (Dominique), Nicholas; four great-grandchildren, Autumn, Sawyer, Karriane and Renelle; siblings, John (Barb), Christy, Joe (Jessie), Theresa (late Robert), Margaret (late Percy), Stanley (Patsy), Florence (Wilfred,) Helen (Phillip), David (Alounda), Blair (Debbie), Byrdman, Wilma (Carl), Marie (Frank); sister-in-law, Anna Buchanan, and many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Peter was predeceased by brother, Paulie; infant Simon; nephew, Joey; niece, Renee; nephew, Robbie, and nephew, Dougie. Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation or funeral. A graveside service was held on Dec. 1, 2018.
Words of comfort may be forwarded to his family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com. (Halifax), Patsy, Helen, and Doris (Glace Bay). She was a wonderful grandmother who was there for all the important events in the lives of her grandchildren, Jason, Tim, Matthew, Sarah, and great-grandchildren, Luke, Nate, Maeve, and Arden.
The family is grateful for the incredible care and friendship our mother received from the staff at Alderwood. We couldn’t have asked for more. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of Macaskill Funeral Home. A memorial will be held at a later date.
