STELLARTON – With great sadness we would like to announce the passing of George Harvey Megeney.
George was a family man, a community minded man, a good man. George was born in Stellarton, June 11th, 1942, the first of 10 children to the late George Trueman and Elizabeth Brannagh Megeney (nee Reekie).
George is survived by his wife Anderine (nee Fraser), his son Lynn (Sandra), daughter Leah O’Hara (Grant), special niece Rhonda Sinclair (Mark) and grandchildren: Zachary, Krista, Lauren and Nolan. George is also survived by sister-in-law Claudia Clarke (Owen); brothers: Robert Megeney (Patricia), Dexter Megeney (Karen), John Megeney (Karen); sisters: Bydie Cyr (William), Joni Maybe (John), Marie Lays (Mike) and Jeannie Beaudry.
George was predeceased by his parents, sisters Heather MacDonald, Nancy Sinclair and nephew Kevin Megeney.
George left home at a young age to earn his way, joining the military in 1959, serving initially with The Black Watch, RHR of Canada. George met the love of his life Anderine, they wed in December 1962, before setting off on an adventure to live in West Germany, where George was stationed with NATO. Over the years George served with the United Nations (U.N.) peacekeeping mission to Cyprus, and was stationed with the U.N. Observer force in the Sinai Peninsula during the Egyptian invasion, which led to the outbreak of the Six Day War in June of 1967. George left the military in 1968, moving back to Pictou County with his young family, taking a job as a police officer with the town of New Glasgow. Over the next 35 years, George had a diverse and rewarding career in policing, retiring from the Stellarton Police Services in 2003. From 2004 to 2006, then 2008 to the current date, George served as a Stellarton Town Councilor, where he was instrumental in securing the establishment of the Stellarton Business Park. George was actively involved in a wide range of community associations, volunteering his time for many, many groups and individuals. George was fiercely proud and protective of his family, his friends, his town and county.
