Obituary for Bernard 'Sonny' Heinekamp

It is with deep sadness that we the family of Bernard ‘Sonny’ Heinekamp announce his passing on April 23, 2020, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Born in New Waterford on June 5, 1935, he was the son of the late Heinrich and Margaret (Bennett) Heinekamp.

Sonny was a proud coal miner. He loved watching sports on the television, his summers camping at the trailer in Mira, and spending time with family and friends. In his earlier years, he enjoyed playing darts at the Lions Club.

Surviving are his daughters, Brenda (Jack), Maureen (Kenny), Anita (Collin), Donna; son Blair (Cheryl); grandchildren; Brenda Lee (Cory), Lisa (JW), Jennifer (Derek), Gregory, Billy, Blaine, Blair, Wayne, Jason, Brendon, Maria, Megan, Aiden; great-grandchildren Haley, Jade, Kaine, Marissa, Brianna, Xander, Claire, Vanessa, Alyssa, Owen, Aluk, Skylar, Arionna; sister Dolores; brothers John ‘Hank’ (Freda) and Leonard ‘Lanke’.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his loving wife Celestina ‘Stella’ (Hinchey); daughter Sheila; son John; brothers Herman Henry, Henry Herman ‘Bobby’; sisters Margaret ‘Sissy’, Annie Christina ‘Tina’, and Charlotte Sophia ‘Chuckie’.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital and MacGillivray Guest Home for the excellent care they provided to Sonny.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations in Sonny’s memory can be made to the charity of one’s choice.
