It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Glen William MacDonald of Sydney, passing away Saturday, December 9, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Ralph and Eunice (Stubbard) MacDonald. He grew up in New Waterford, moving to Antigonish, NS at age of 12. Since the age of 16, Glen worked in the tourism and hospitality industries. There was nothing Glen enjoyed more than promoting Cape Breton Island. He was a long-time member of Sydney Y’s Men Club and loved volunteering for Christmas Cheer with his family every year. He was also an avid gardener and baker. His girls’ favorite were his famous chocolate chip cookies! Glen really enjoyed spending time with family and friends, sharing his latest culinary creations.
Glen is survived by his wife, Gail (MacLeod); twin daughters, Megan and Amy, both of Sydney; his dog, Chloe; brother, Keith (Moira) Whitney Pier; sisters-in-law, Carol Anne (Dank), West Bay, Joyce MacLeod, Grand River and Faye (Kenny), Dartmouth; brother-in-law, Parker (Patsy), Blacketts Lake, and nieces and nephews, Nicole, Kim, Kyle, Jennifer, Allister, Matthew, Melanie and Mackenzie.
Visitation will take place Tuesday, December 12, 2017 in Sydney Memorial Chapel from 4-8 p.m. Funeral service will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. in Bethel Presbyterian Church with Rev. Robert Lyle officiating. Interment will take place at a later date.
Memorials may be made to the Y’s Mens Christmas Cheer, Patient Care Fund at the Cancer Center at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, or to the Tourism Scholarship in Glen’s name at CBU.
