Abbott, Horace Levi, age 74, of Musgrave Harbour Passed away suddenly June 2nd, 2021 at the age of 74. Horace was born in Musgrave Harbour May 5th, 1947 to the late Wilfred and Emma (Mouland) Abbott.
Horace graduated from the Gander Vocational School as part of the first graduating class with the Aircraft Maintenance program in 1966. He began his career with Eastern Provincial Airways (EPA). He worked for several airlines over the course of his career, including Canadian Airlines and Canjet. He retired in 2008 from the Newfoundland Government, where he worked as an engineer on their fleet of water bombers. Horace was an avid outdoorsman who loved salmon fishing, trout fishing, and moose hunting. When he was not on the river, he would spend long hours working in his garden and getting everything just right. Mom and Dad always enjoyed their Saturday nights with Beatrice and Brian, Morley and Jean, and Margaret. He loved playing guitar and singing with family and friends. Anyone who knew Horace knew that he was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for.
Horace is survived by his wife of 51 years Grace (Faulkner), sons Rodney (Nathalie) and Grant, son-in-law Bill Wellwood, sister Mollie (Bill) Rhude, brothers Ellis (Roxane) and Bill (Diane). Besides his parents, Horace was predeceased by his daughter Carolyn, and brother Dennis. Horace also leaves behind his grandchildren Alex, Samuel, Kennedy, and Julie.
Special thanks to Vivian Whiteway (niece), Laura Whiteway (grand niece), and Jason Mouland (nephew) for their assistance with Horace. We would also like to thank the support from the Musgrave Harbour Fire Department, and staff at Brookfield Hospital. Mom would like to thank her family for their support.
In lieu of flowers, Horace’s family ask that you donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or Musgrave Harbour volunteer fire department. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a service will be held at a later date.
