William Charles 'Chubby' Mcleod

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Chubby McLeod on May 23rd at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Born in New Waterford he was the son of the late William Charles and Nellie (Bishop) McLeod. Chubby worked for Devco as a coal miner in Lingan, Phalen and Prince Mine for 24 years. He then travelled with his soul mate Anne to Alberta and worked for Grande Cache Coal as a millwright for the past 8 years until his illness. Chubby and Anne recently moved back to Cape Breton. He loved spending his summers camping at Mira Water Park and thoroughly enjoyed a game of horseshoes with his buddies and sharing laughs at the mens bingo. Chubby was a man of few words but when he spoke his words said volumes. He will be remembered as a wonderful father, a devoted grandfather and a loyal friend. His sense of humor along with his many pranks and mischievous smile will be cherished memories that will live on in everyone who knew him. Surviving are his soul mate and best friend Anne (McLellan) Muir, his son Robert (Linda) Victoria Mines, daughter, Loretta (Mark), New Waterford, son Jason (Judy), Sylvan Lake, AB., son Jeremy (Jill), Grande Prairie, AB and daughter Jillian, Sylvan Lake, AB.
