Allison Roy MacLeod. We, the family of Allison MacLeod, announce his peaceful passing after a brief illness on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, at the age of 85.
Dad was born in New Glasgow (Greenwood) and, at the young age of 17, began his career with C.N. in the Stellarton Railyard. Shortly after that, he followed his older brother Gordon (Wedgie) to North Sydney where he worked for 34 years with CN Marine/Marine Atlantic. It was there that he married our Mom, raised his children and made many lasting friendships which included summer camping with his family and hunting trips to the cabin in Margaree with the boys. Fishing and bowling were among some of his hobbies, but his favorite was golfing. Dad was an avid golfer and member at Seaview and later Abercrombie Golf Clubs for many years.
He is survived by his children, Janet (John), and Murray (Marylou). He is also survived by his beautiful granddaughters, Erica (Peter) and Leah. He also leaves to mourn his siblings, Gordon, Muriel, Marilyn, David (Shirley) and Diane (Neville). He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Wilson White and many nieces and nephews. He will forever be missed by his feline princess, Callie.
He was predeceased by his wife, Isabel, sister-in-law, Lois MacLeod and brother-in-law, Jimmy Himmelman.
We would like to thank the staff on the 4th and 5th floors at the Aberdeen Hospital for the wonderful care and compassion shown to our father. A special thanks to Dr. Rivera for all the years of exceptional care.
