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.

Cremation has taken place. Visitation will take  place  at  S.W. Chant & Son Funeral  Home  on  Monday  April  9,  2018, from 12pm-1:45pm.  A Celebration of Life will take place in the Funeral Home Chapel, beginning at 2pm, with Fr. Bill Burke officiating, and a reception will follow.
