It is with great sorrow that we the family of Paul Landry announce his passing on April 4, 2018 at the C.B. Regional Hospital surrounded by family and friends. Paul was the son of the late Doug and Eileen (nee Cusack) Landry of Paul’s Hotel in Sydney.
In his younger years, Paul was an alter boy with Sacred Heart Parish and a Scout Leader with Scouts Canada. He enjoyed hiking, camping and spent many summers at Camp Beaver. Paul’s love of nature and the outdoors was shared with his family every summer at music festivals and camping adventures across Cape Breton Island and beyond. Paul retired as a Stationary Engineer with the Sydney Steel Plant. He was an avid gardener and carpenter who also enjoyed woodworking.
Paul loved nothing more than to dance all night with his wife and to have his family all together for gatherings around the dinner table, a bonfire or a family game night. Paul is survived by his loving wife Brenda whom he has loved for 50 years, daughter Kim Landry (James Squires) Halifax, sons Michael (Judith) Landry, Lawrencetown and Mark (Amanda) Landry, Toronto, brothers Colin (Barb) Sydney, D.A. (Ann Francis) Sydney. Papa/Grand-Dad will be sadly missed by his grandchildren Danielle, Mackenzie, Aubrey, Liberty, Faith, Aidan and Evy.
