JOSEPH MARTIN SUTHERLAND

Passed in: EVANSTON, Nova Scotia
Passed on: February 23rd, 2017

Joseph Martin Sutherland, 89 of St. Peters died February 23, 2017 in Strait Richmond Hospital, Evanston.
Joe was a World War II Merchant Marine veteran and a proud member of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 47, St. Peters. He was a longtime fan of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles and there wasn’t a storm that would not prevent him from missing a game.
A generous and community minded man, he will be remembered as always ready to lend a hand and his time to raise money for any worthy cause or person in need. Joe spent much time on the shore, where anyone was welcomed to share his catch.
He is survived by his wife, Beryl; sons, Michael (Sandra Landry), Andrew (Elizabeth Burke) all of St. Peters; daughter, Heather Sutherland, Halifax and daughter-in-law, Dawn Hollohan, Sydney; grandchildren, Byron Sutherland, Vancouver, Andy King, River Bourgeois, Alexis Sutherland, Calgary, Josie Sutherland, Sydney, Shelby Sutherland, Ottawa, Tyler Sutherland, Seattle and Tara MacAulay, St. Peters.
Joe was predeceased by his mother, Catherine Sutherland and son, Timothy.
Resting in the River Bourgeois Visitation Parlor on Saturday from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m.
Funeral services and burial will be held at a later date.
Memorial Donations may be to Strait Richmond Hospital, Saint Martha’s Regional Hospital or a charity of choice.
