Stafford ‘Stanley’ MacDonald
Age 73, New Victoria

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of a wonderful man, our father Stafford ‘Stanley’ MacDonald, on February 8, 2021, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

Born in Quebec, on May 28, 1947, he was the son of the late Robert and Alma (Irvine) MacDonald.

Da was a coal miner who worked in Lingan mine. He was a jack of all trades who could do anything he put his hand to, and he was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed it. He enjoyed playing his guitar and harmonica, as well as being outdoors. Da loved many things, but most of all he loved his family and friends and the times they got to share.

Left to mourn his passing are his children; Lee, Lorrie (Blair), Chris (Nadine), Trevor; his grandchildren who were his pride and joy, Zackery, Dawson, Cody, Poppy’s princesses, Nevaeh, Destiny, Violet, Tessa; his siblings Bernice (Howard), Paula, Mona, Maxine (Jilles), Jessie, Roberta, Kirk (Maureen); many nieces and nephews; special nephew Paul, who was like a son.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by the love of his life, his wife Heidi (Halnuck) ; son Robbie; sisters Sadie, Dolly, Holly ‘Babe’; several brothers and sisters in law.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses from many departments for the exceptional care given to him over the years, especially the Cape Breton Renal Dialysis Unit where he thought so much of them. They were like a second family to him and for that we will be forever grateful.

Visitation will be on Monday, February 15, 2021 from 2-4pm and 6-8pm. Funeral mass will be held in the Parish of Saint Leonard on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, at 10am, with Father Peter McLeod officiating. Masks and social distancing are required at both. Burial will be in St. Agnes Cemetery at a later date.

Donations in Stanley’s memory can be made to the Cape Breton Renal Dialysis Unit.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of McLellan Brothers Funeral Home, 3183 Plummer Ave, New Waterford, 902-862-7500.
