Colin Chester McLeod
Colin Chester McLeod 1936-2019, passed away peacefully at the George Dumont Hospital on April 14th. Pre-deceased by his loving wife of 56 years, Margaret (Tilley), his parents Beverly & Isabel (Wry), and dear brother Bill. He will be terribly missed by children Mark (Dawn-Marie), Leslie (Greg), Mary (Sheldon), Colin (Janet), and Stacy (Troy) and grandchildren Justin, Laura, Mackenzie, Brett, Garrett, Christy, Hannah, Louisa, Joel, Adam, Jacob and Cole; great grandchildren Benjamin and Maxwell; dear sisters Betty Lou and Beverly and sister in law Judy; many nieces and nephews, and lifelong friends the Tweedies, Ed, Annette and Jillian.
Colin worked for 42 years with NBTel, until he retired at 58, and was a member of the Telephone Pioneers. He was an active and involved parishioner of St George’s Anglican church, serving several terms as church warden, and often volunteering his time to help with pancake suppers, church bazaars, or to offer his handyman skills. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed both hunting and fishing with "the boys", and spending time at Walton’s beach with his family.
Special thanks to the staff at the Faubourg Mascaret and the palliative care unit staff at the George Dumont hospital for their care and compassion. Tremendous gratitude to Father Chris VanBuskirk for his unmeasurable devotion and support of Colin and his family over the years.
Visitation and funeral service will both be held at St George’s Anglican church on Wednesday, April 17th (2-5) and funeral service on April 18th at 1pm.
Arrangements in care of Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995).
