JP earned his teaching degree at St. FX University in 1975.
He taught in a number of Cape Breton schools, but will always be
remembered for his time at Sydney Academy — his home away
from home. We, the family of JP, acknowledge and respect that our
father had many friends, students and colleagues that also considered
him family. We want to assure you that he felt the same way, and that
he would be honoured if his legacy of hard work, encouragement and
compassion could live on through you.
To JP: We promise to love each other as you have loved us. We
will be there for each other as you have been there for us. Finally,
we promise to laugh at good jokes and bad, and always think of you
when we do.
There will be no visitation. Funeral service will be held at
Sydney Memorial Chapel on Saturday, November 18 at 12 p.m., with Rev.
Robert Lyle officiating.
Memorials may be made to Palliative Care.
