James Conrad Harroun

Conrad, age 79, passed away May 28, 2019, at Celtic Court in Sydney. Born in Springhill, he was the son of the late James G and Reta E (McKay) Harroun.
Conrad started work with the Royal Bank of Canada in Amherst and continued on to Bedford, Annapolis Royal, New Glasgow, Halifax, Truro, Maitland and Whycocomagh. Upon leaving the bank, Conrad's next move was to settle back to Maitland while working for NS Dept. of Consumer Affairs and Service NS until his early retirement due to ill health. Over his lifetime, Conrad volunteered much time to service and community groups. He was a past member and treasurer of the Lions Club, Scouts Canada Tri-County Area, and the Maitland Volunteer Fire Department, to name a few.
Conrad was predeceased by his loving wife, Theresa Elizabeth (McNeil) Harroun. They met while both working at the Royal Bank and were constant companions until her unexpected death in January 1996. During their years they had many happy times with their two boys. In the summers, they would travel the Maritimes and receive family at their home. When the boys grew older Conrad and Theresa continued to travel visiting family and sharing a love of the Toronto Blue Jays. In his later years, after Theresa's passing, he resided with his son Patrick in Cape Breton prior to his move to Celtic Court.
Conrad is survived by his sons, Patrick (Nancy) in Glace Bay, Dan (Heather) in Halifax and five grandchildren, Kate, Maddie, Connor, Robbie, Theresa; and step-grandchildren, Kurt and Lauren. Also survived by brother, Gerald (Joyce) Harroun of Springhill; sister, Myrna (Jim) Wicks of Charlottetown, many nieces and nephews, and sister-in-law, Agnes Keeler of Dartmouth.
Funeral will be held in Truro on June 3, 2019, at Immaculate Conception Church at 2 p.m. with Fr. Christinel Fratadi officiating. Luncheon and burial in Truro Cemetery to follow. Family flowers only by request.
The family wishes to thank each and every current and past staff member at Celtic Court during Conrad's stay there for the past 5 years. All the conversations, kind words, care and utmost compassion shown will never be forgotten and was a pleasant part of Conrad's path. We would also extend gratitude to Marg Gorveatte for her friendship with Conrad and his family.
Titus 3:2 "To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people." - Rest in Peace J.C.
