Bertram Day

It is with great sadness that we the family of Bert announce his peaceful passing at home in Louisbourg on October 27th, 2018.

He was a son of the late Norman and Rose (Strickland) Day.

Bert was a kind and quiet man who was a commercial fisherman most of his life. He fished on both the Atlantic and Pacific coast. In his younger years he was an avid hunter and sportsman. In his later years he enjoyed his daily walks around town and the harbour watching the boats coming and going.

He is survived by his son, Dwayne (Glenda) Day, grandchildren Erica and Ryley, brothers Norman (Lillian) Day, Ernest (Phyllis) Day, Sam (Elizabeth) Day; sister Laura Day and sister-in-law Marlene (John) Drolet. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews as well as close neighbours and friends.

Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his wife Dorothy (Fiander) and nephew, Jason Day.
