Kenneth ‘Kenne’ Allan Macdonald
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Kenne Macdonald, at the age of 69 years, after a courageous battle with cancer on September 17, 2018 in Port Hawkesbury, NS.
Born in Sydney on January 18, 1949, Kenne was predeceased by his father, Dr. Gordon Creelman (1984); mother, Doris Irene (1987); brother, John Gordon (1982) and second mother, Nora Carmichael (1995).
He is survived by his sister, Mary Patricia Benner (Doug) of Calgary, AB; two nieces, Susan (Jim) Laskosky of Rocky Mountain House, AB and Tricia McFadyen of Medicine Hat, AB, as well as numerous MacLeod/Macdonald cousins.
Kenne attended University College of Cape Breton and St. Francis Xavier University, where he achieved his BA. His career took him down several paths, including a brief time in Aklavik, NWT, but, he returned back to Cape Breton, where he came back to the land he loved so much. His love of puns and quick wit, gained him many friends and this trait followed him throughout his
career. His outgoing personality and concern for others, did not go unnoticed by those who knew him. Kenne retired from Island Employment last year and will surely be missed by his co-workers.
A graveside service at Hardwood Hill Cemetery in Sydney will be held at 12 p.m.
on Friday, October 19, 2018 with a reception to follow at Chant’s Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney, all are welcome.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Cancer Foundation or a charity of choice would be appreciated.
Rest in Peace ‘Bean’.
