Keith "Nick" Malcolm Pineo

It is with sadness that the family of Keith "Nick" Pineo announces his death at Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at the age of 89. Born in Dartmouth, N.S., on June 28, 1928, he was the husband of Rose Marie (Pothier) Pineo of Fredericton, N.B. In addition to his wife, Rose Marie, Nick leaves behind his children, Mark (Leona) of Halifax, N.S., Arlene of Fredericton, N.B., and Brian (Cathy) of Dartmouth, N.S.; grandsons, Keith and Scott Pineo; many nieces and nephews. Nick was predeceased by his parents, Ralph and Bessie (Porter) Pineo; siblings, Elsie Murphy, Mary Holman, and Tom Pineo. Nick graduated from Horton Academy at Acadia University and started his career as an electrician in the Halifax shipyards. He worked at Vickers in Montreal, Quebec, and Saint John shipyard in New Brunswick. He served aboard the Kapuskasing, Montrose, Fort Francis, Baffin, Bluenose, Abby, and John Hamilton Grey. He retired in 1997. Nick was awarded a life membership to the Lions Club for service to the community in various capacities. In his retirement he enjoyed winter travel to Florida, golf, curling, sailing, and making cabinetry. He was a man that always had to have a project many of which ended up as furniture for friends and family. Most of all, Nick enjoyed people. He was happiest when hosting a party with new and old friends. Visitation was held at McAdam's Funeral Home on Monday, April 2, 2018 from 12:30 - 2 p.m. followed by a service in the funeral home chapel beginning at 2 p.m. Rev. Ellen Beairsto was the officiant.
