Ronald Patrick ‘Buddy-Bud’ MACDONALD

Passed on: February 3rd, 2018

It is with profound sadness that we announce Bud’s peaceful passing on Saturday, February 3, 2018 in the Hants Community Hospital, Windsor, after a brief illness. Bud was raised in Sydney River and was the son of the late, Rannie and Elizabeth (Campbell) MacDonald. He left Cape Breton for Ontario after high school and worked for the provinces of Ontario and Nova Scotia as a senior IT Specialist before retiring “down at the lake”. Bud loved to travel, especially within North America and Europe. He loved people and would chat with everyone he met, really listening to their stories. He loved to tell a good joke but will be best remembered for his quick pun.
Buddy is survived by his wife of 46 years, the former Charlotte Clarke; sons, Jonathan (Leslie), Halifax and Matthew (Laura), Belleville, Ontario; five grandchildren, Alex, Brady, Brody, Jayden and Danah; siblings, Stewart (Carol), Sydney, Mary Ellen (Dan) MacNeil, Big Pond, Jeannie (Kenny) Rent, Ralph (Valerie), all of Lower Sackville.
Besides his parents, Bud was predeceased his sisters, Betty and Marion (McGillivray), and brothers, Gussie and Johnny Gordon.
Cremation has taken place under the care of the Lindsay Windsor Funeral Home, 194 King St., P.O. Box 2218, Windsor, NS, B0N 2T0.
A celebration of Bud’s life will be held 2 p.m. Wednesday, February 7, 2018 in the Lindsay Windsor Funeral Home. Rev. John MacPherson officiating.
On Friday, February 9, 2018 at 2 p.m. a service will be held at Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic Church in Sydney, Cape Breton. Rev. Duaine Devereaux officiating. A reception will be held at the church. Burial will be in the Resurrection Cemetery.
