It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of George Blaise Kennedy on Saturday, March 11, 2017, at Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney. Born on February 2, 1939 in Irish Vale, George was the son of the late John Alec and Annie Mae (MacNeil) Kennedy. George loved life. He worked for Stott Aluminum for many years before venturing on his own as a business owner. His greatest joy in life was his family and helping others. George will be remembered by family and friends being honest and humble, as well as for his sense of humour. He will be missed by all who knew him. George is survived by his partner, Laine Kangropool; sons, Jimmy (Kim) and David Kennedy; daughter, Cathy (Chris) Van der Mark; stepchildren, Leslie Ann, Donalda, Adelle and Fred; other stepchildren, Dwayne, Wendy and Kim; step-grandchildren, Christopher, Caleb, Breanna, William, Nicolas, Elizabeth and William; brother, Joe (Camille); sisters, Louise (Leo) Collins, Jean Jackson, Carmella (Paul) LeBlanc, Dolores (Peter) Moran, Rose (Ray) Mombourquette, Helen (Shawn MacDonald) Garland and Carol (Greg) Hawylak; as well as many nieces, nephews and brothers-in-law. Besides his parents, George was predeceased by his sisters, Mary ‘Kitty’ Anderson and Loretta Stone.
As per George’s wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation. A private graveside service for the late George Kennedy will take place in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks, at a later date.
