Sympathy Notes

August 30thCharles MacIntosh of Halifax (Halifax Citadel-Sable Island) passed away at the age of 90. Charlie was a supporter through the Stanfield and Buchanan campaigns. He practised law well into his 80’s with the Armour Group and was known as an expert in legal property law. Condolences to his family including daughter Connie MacIntosh.

August 22nd  – Lloyd MacQueen of Dartmouth (Dartmouth South) passed away.  Condolences to his family including wife Valerie.  Lloyd served on the provincial executive in the 1980’s and 90s and was active in Dartmouth political circles for many years. His obituary notes “Lloyd was a member of the PC Party of Nova Scotia, beginning his hobby at age 13 with the Cape Breton South PC Association. He continued to cultivate his political interest locally and provincially, serving in many key positions at executive and campaign levels for over 40 years.”  Lloyd was a heart transplant recipient some 23 years ago. His obituary notes “Although medically compromised for so many years, Lloyd embraced his participation in the Volunteer Mentorship Program for families awaiting and receiving transplants. As an organ recipient, gratitude is extended specifically to the generosity of his organ donors and their families, along with the hundreds of specialists and dedicated health care professionals provided to him. Their steadfast care and concern was always exemplary. As a way of showing his deep appreciation to the science, technology, and research programs that gave him so much over his 23-year post-transplant journey, Lloyd chose to donate his remains to Dalhousie’s Department of Medical Neuroscience.   A memorial mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m., September 16, in St. Clement’s Church in Dartmouth, with Father Owen Connolly presiding. A reception will follow in the parish hall. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Atlantic Canada Multi-Organ Transplant Program (MOTP) or to the QEII Health Sciences Centre Foundation. To honor Lloyd’s memory, please consider discussing organ donation with your family.

August 17th  – Aldon Turner of Ramsay Lake, New Ross (Chester-St. Margaret’s) passed away at the age of 78.  Aldon was an ardent supporter provincially and federally and worked diligently to turn out the tory vote in New Ross and the Forties.
