Wilson Dwight (Robin) Mansfield
We are heartbroken to announce the sudden passing of our loving husband, father and grandfather, Wilson Mansfield, age 75, on Wednesday August 21, 2019, at home.
Born in North Sydney on April 23, 1944, Wilson was the youngest son of the late William and Mae (Stubbert) Mansfield. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church, North Sydney. He sailed on the Great Lake boats and later worked at Marine Atlantic. He enjoyed spending summers at Englishtown Ridge Campground with his many friends, fishing on the wharf, and delivering his catch to family and friends. He loved playing the accordion for residents of local nursing homes.
Wilson is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Phyllis (Jessome); daughter Michele (Darcy) Lynch and son Wilson (Robbie) (Dawn Whitty); grandchildren Andrea Tomko, Daniel Lynch, Robyn Mansfield and Patrick Mansfield; brother Peter Mansfield and sisters-in-law Nancy Mansfield and Becky Mansfield, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by brothers William, George, Daniel and Orville, sister Jean MacPhail, and 4 siblings in infancy.
