MacIsaac, Kenneth Montgomery, aged 73, passed away May 3,
2021 at The Dartmouth General Hospital.
Born in Antigonish on May 7, 1947, he was the son of the late
Alex “Tando” and Flora Christine (Mac Innes)
Kenneth was a talented welder who was employed by Trenton Car
Works and by many construction companies in the Maritimes and across
Canada. His welding skills placed him in high demand throughout his
working life. He retired early due to poor health.
Kenneth was also a talented musician whether singing, picking
his 12-string guitar, tickling the ivories of his mother’s
piano, or squeezing tunes from his accordion. His talents were much in
demand at any social gathering in Giant’s Lake, Country
Harbour, or any place where people gathered in friendship. He loved to
laugh and bring a smile to the faces of others.
He was an avid reader. While not an academic, he could
provide insightful observations on the issues of the day. His bible
was never far from his eyes.
He is survived by his daughter, Christine (Paul), Halifax;
his sister, Flora (Herman) Long and brothers, Aird (Sandra) and Norman
(Judy), all of Giant’s Lake, brother, Angus
“Tando” (Mary Ann) of Antigonish; and sister-in-law, Ann
Marie Cameron, Lower South River. He is also survived by Lorraine
Burton who was his landlady and caregiver for over 30
Kenneth was predeceased by his wife, Bonnie; his parents,
Tando and Flora; and brother, George.
The family would like to thank Lorraine for her kindness to
Kenneth for more than 30 years. We also want to thank the nurses,
doctors, and staff of the Dartmouth General Hospital for the care
given Kenneth on the many occasions he needed that care, especially in
the last two months.
Cremation has taken place. A gathering to celebrate
Kenneth’s life will occur at a later date when COVID
Donations in Kenneth’s name may be made to
L’arche Antigonish or CACL Antigonish.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of C.L. Curry
Funeral Home, Antigonish. Online condolences:
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Kenneth MacIsaac 1947 2021..
