GORMLEY, Daniel Roderick “Danny” MWO Retired CD of Centreville, Kings Co. It is with heavy hearts that we, the family of Danny Gormley announce his passing on May 19, 2011, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Québec city, he was the son of Marguerite (Murphy) and the late Carl Gormley. Danny enjoyed a 27 year career serving his country as a radio operator in the Canadian Forces. Upon his retirement, Danny didn’t want to take off the uniform, so he put on the Canadian Tire Auto parts uniform and worked at the Parts desk in Kanata, ON and New Minas, NS. Always up for a challenge he joined Commissionaires NS and enjoyed working at Acadia University and his two favorite work sites, NSCC Kingstec and the Experimental Farm in Kentville NS. When not working, Danny could be found tending to his gardens or serving something up from the kitchen – his favorite past time. Danny was predeceased by his first wife Ruth Dolan. He is survived by the love of his life and wife Suzanne Trudeau; daughter Sharon of Ontario, son Carl of Halifax; brother Bruce (Gladys) Clementsport; sisters Teresa (Darald) Lewis, South Williamston; Jennifer (Terry) Power, Bridgetown; grandsons Damon, Jimmy, Tye and Colton and many nieces and nephews. Cremation has taken place and no visitation at family’s request. Funeral service was held 2:00 p.m. Friday, May 27 in the Chapel of the Annapolis Valley Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, Coldbrook.
