Cyril Fabian Henry Bona
August 29, 1925 – April 26, 2022

Bona, Cyril (Fabian Henry)
August 29, 1925 — April 26, 2022
Age 96 of Halifax, Nova Scotia, passed away quietly on Monday, April 26, 2022 at the Camp
Hill Veterans Memorial Building.
Cyril (known as Cy) was born on August 29, 1925 to the late Fabian and Emily (French) Bona.
In addition to his parents, Cy was predeceased by his dearly loved and loving wife Edith
(Trump) and siblings Beatrice, Dorothy (Hunt), Dennis, Stan, and Wallace. His sister Bette
(Elizabeth Charlton) is his remaining sibling. He has a son, Bernie, and a granddaughter and
grandson. He also leaves behind many cousins, nieces and nephews, both grand and greatgrand.
Cy was a WWII veteran enlisting at 17 and served with the North Nova Scotia Highlanders
(North Novies) in Belgium, Holland, and Germany at the age of 19. After the war, he remained
in the forces (RCAF and Navy) for a number of years, but quit because as he said: “My basic
principles of decency, honesty, and fair-mindedness wouldn’t allow me to carry on.”
He lived in Winnipeg from the early 1960s until late December 2021. Many of his friends in his
‘music sphere’ remain in and around Winnipeg and shared his love of music. One friend,
Valarie-Lynn, urged Cy to pursue his love of guitar and music on YouTube. She opened a
‘whole new world’ to him in his latter years. And a very special mention to his neighbours
Linda, Liette, and Tim in Winnipeg for taking care of Cy prior to his move to Halifax. His
relatives appreciated it immensely.
Cy had strong affinity for Cape Breton (his ancestral roots), especially the area around
L’Ardoise. On many of his trips to Cape Breton, he played his guitar during many stops and
venues in Cape Breton: nursing homes, seniors’ clubs, legions, and taverns all around
L’Ardoise, Grand Anse, and the Port Hawkesbury region. Many thanks to his cousin Laudwina
who looked out for him while he visited C.B. in the summers, and kept an eye on his place
when he returned to Winnipeg.
Cy was a shy and private person, but had a sense of humour: “At present [age 89] I am putting
shingles on my roof; however, I think I will just do the lower part because my legs do not want
to work anymore, and I have never taken parachute lessons.” He said that a musician doesn’t
get paid a lot. Edith paid him “$5 a week to play outside and $10 a week not to play at all.”
A special thanks to Dennis and Nancy at MacKeigan’s Guest Home for their excellent care and
making his transition to Halifax a smooth one. We thank the staff of Camp Hill Veterans
Memorial for their support during his short four month stay. The family very much appreciates
the supportive efforts of his niece Beverly in helping Cy during his transition back to Halifax,
and his settling into Camp Hill.
Cy was a very unique individual, sensitive and generous in heart and soul. Rest in Peace!
