Nelson Peter MacLean
1940-2019
MacLEAN, Nelson Peter
– Nov. 27, 1940 – Nov. 28, 2019. It is with heavy
hearts we announce the passing of a loving husband, father and
grandfather, who passed away peacefully at home in Little
Narrows.
Born in Orangedale, he was the son of the late John Y and
Cassie (MacDonald) MacLean. Dad left Orangedale in his teens with his
sister, Annie Mae. They stayed in Florida for a short time with their
sister, Hughena and then moved to Boston. He worked at Newton Foods in
Massachusetts for many years.
He then moved to Ontario where he worked for United Vanlines
moving furniture. In 1975 he moved back to Massachusetts where he
worked at Grant Construction. Here he was electrocuted by 21,800
volts. Dad was a fighter, they said he would not survive, but he did
and continued to fight so many more battles, car accidents, surgeries
and cancer.
Dad then moved back to Cape Breton, settling in Little
Narrows until his death. He worked as a ferryman, lumberman and
fisherman. He was a strong gentle man, who loved fishing, hunting and
spending time with his family. Also many nights were travelled to
friends and family for a good game of cards. You would often find dad
travelling along the boom road with one or more of his brothers and
many times you would see “the baby” either driving
or co-piloting.
Nelson is survived by his loving wife, Shirley; son, Dwayne
MacLean (Lois); daughters, Kim D’Entremont (Mark); Wendy
MacLean (from first wife); Sharlene MacLean (Cory), Estmere;
step-daughter, Kim MacNeil – MacDonald, Sydney;
grandchildren, Bethany (who was always counted on to decorate for Dad,
especially Christmas) Breagha (Dad would often sit there rubbing her
back and combing her hair as they sat watching the hockey games
together, and becoming the “new baby in town” as she
puts it), Elizabeth, Nick and William, Chantel and Curtis;
great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents, John Y and Cassie;
sisters, Hughena, Kaye and Annie Mae; brothers, Clarence, Daniel,
William, Alexander, Freddie, Edmond and Ralph.
There will be no visitation. A graveside service will take
place on Wednesday, December 4 at 2 p.m. in Sacred Heart Cemetery,
MacKinnon’s Harbour with Father Hughie MacNeil officiating.
Memorial donations may be made to a local SPCA or to a charity of
one’s choice. Arrangements are under the care and direction
of Dennis Haverstock Funeral Chapel, Whycocomagh. Words of comfort may
be forwarded to the family at www.haverstocks.com
