Hubert Joseph  Covin

Born: August 16th, 1949

Passed on: September 26th, 2017

On September 26, 2017, I lost the love of my life, Hubert Joseph Covin, 68, to cancer. He was the son of the late Ernest and Josephine Covin.
Hubert had many friends who loved him, no matter who it was. He made friends easy.
Hubert is survived by his former wife, Linda Covin (Penney), who never left his side for the five weeks he spent in the hospital. He is also survived by daughters, Jennifer Spears (George), Megan Covin and April Higgins (Warren), who he thought of as a daughter. He is also survived by one brother, Leo Covin (Josephine); sisters, Vange Crane (Gully), Charlotte Ley (Allie), Patricia Covin (Billy), Cathy Covin (Brian Mercer); grandchildren, Jennie, Matthew and Bria; brother-in-law, Arthur Penney (Pauline); sisters-in-law, Theresa McCarthy (Richard), Brenda MacDonald (Dan), Dena Penney (Irene), Helen Colborne (Bruce), Kimberley Penney. He will also be missed by a very special person, Katie Cantwell, who he called his granddaughter; special cousins, Tommy Covin and Linda Covin; as well as many other cousins, nieces and nephews.
Hubert was predeceased by his first wife, Sandra Covin, and his brothers, Clifford, Roger and Terry Covin.
I want to thank the nurses on 4C, 4B, and Palliative Care who gave Hubert the best care ever. Also thanks to all the doctors who took part in his being cared for, his friends who came to visit and showed love and support as well as those who showed concern on Facebook.
A Celebration of Hubert’s life will take place Friday, September 29 at 11 a.m. at S.W. Chant and Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney, Rev. Sheldon Chant to officiate. Online condolences may be made to the family at www.chantfuneralhome.ca.
