It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of Michael Whitty, age 71, of Ingonish Harbour on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at Buchanan Memorial Hospital, Neil's Harbour.
Born in Ingonish Harbour on November 20, 1945, he was the son of the late Wilfred and Catherine Whitty.
Michael was well known for his true gift of music, telling tall tales and making endless people laugh. He was happiest fishing or playing one of his instruments. He enjoyed tinkering with something in his garage or backyard. He will be loved and missed by many, especially his Harbour family.
Michael is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Debbie (Slade); daughters, Michelle (Tommy) Donovan, Fox Creek, Ronda (Charlie) Seymour, Florence; loving grandfather to Michael James Donovan; brother, Wilfred, Halifax; sister, Loretta (Michael) MacLellan, Sydney and many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by an infant son, Ronald Michael; and sister-in-law, Brenda Donovan.
Special thanks to the staff of Buchanan Memorial Hospital.
Cremation has taken place. His family will receive visitors in St. Peter’s Church, Ingonish Beach, on Friday, October 20, 2017, from 1-2 p.m.
A celebration of his life will be held Friday at 2 p.m. in the church with Fr. Lazarus Guria officiating.
Words of comfort may be forwarded to his family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com.
