Dennis MacDonald 2022

Dennis MacDonald
Our Dad, Dennis Sylvester (DS) MacDonald, passed peacefully
surrounded by love in the early morning hours of Friday, November
18th, 2022. In true DS fashion, he made sure he was
early. Dad was the son of the late Alexander (Sandy) and
Margaret (Peggy Poirier) MacDonald of Orien Avenue in the North End of
New Glasgow where he was raised with his seven brothers and
sisters. Dad, aka Sinned CamDlanod’s, stories of
these days were not only entertaining but left us wondering how they
all survived childhood. No sibling, friend, or family member
was safe from being a star in one of these stories; He gave everyone
equal playing time, all said with love.
He was very much a dedicated and loyal son, brother, father,
grampie and friend. He wasn’t necessarily an
emotional man, but if he gave you his time, even 15 minutes, you were
special to him. Part of his public persona may have been that of a
‘grumpy old man”; he suffered no fools. But he lit up
when he saw an old friend, was on stage, and especially when talking
about and spending time with his grandchildren. Dad loved
being the center of attention and the life of the party. He
was the best storyteller: it was quick, to the point and left you in
stitches. He didn’t let a little fib ruin a good
story; and his quick wit and one-liners were his
trademark.
DS lived simply. He was a content man and wanted for little.
He appeared to be stubborn, but he knew who he was, and was a man who
knew had to stand his ground. No meant no. He also
wasn’t afraid to say it like was. Both important traits to
have in this world. He did despise a fly in his house, rabbit food and
BSers. He loved all things country music; especially singing
and playing in front of a crowd with his former bands, Cheerokee,
Country Spurs and Dennis and Bud. He had a fondness for his
guitars; movies; reading mystery novels; yard sales; making puzzles;
trivia; a good biscuit and Cindy Day. He was also known for
his timeliness (if you aren’t at least 20 minutes early,
you’re late.); his very short, almost drive by visits; his
cover of Rindersella and the Sugly Isters; and his love for his
Montreal Canadians.
Dad was loved by his children: Leslie MacDonald (Colin
Aikman); Debbie Bowen (Scott); Michael (Wendy); Chris (Amber) and
Alex. He didn’t just read us bedtime stories but serenaded
us with songs. He adored his grandchildren Bailee, Tanner
and Sydney Bowen; Beatrice Aikman; Cameron and Lauren MacDonald; and
his little Laney MacDonald. He is also survived by sisters,
Betty (Ivan) Murray and Eileen McKay; brothers, Bert and Russell
(Wanda); sisters-in-laws, Kathleen, Linda and Anne; long-time friend
and partner in crime, Barry Trenholm (Marilyn); many adoring nieces
and nephews and countless friends. Along with his parents, Dad was
predeceased by his brothers Philip, Jeff, Allan and his baby
granddaughter, Lily Diana MacDonald.
We would like to send our sincere gratitude to Drs. Janneke
Gradstein; Keith Short; Dan Stojanovic and all the nurses on
med/surgical at Cumberland Regional Healthcare Center; VON Amherst and
the Palliative Care teams in New Glasgow and
Amherst.
A visitation and service, will take place at R.H. Porter
Funeral Home, 55 Almont Ave., New Glasgow, on Monday, November 21st
from 12-3pm with a service to follow immediately at
3pm.

Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Dennis MacDonald 2022..
