Richard Michael Wall


Richard passed away peacefully surrounded by his family and loved ones on July 30, 2017 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, Nova Scotia.

Born May 3, 1939 he was the son of the late William and Rita Wall.

Richard was a veteran who served over 26 years in the military. He served overseas with the Black Watch 1st Battalion until it disbanded. He continued his military career in Calgary as a warrant officer until his retirement.

The Military was his life and he was filled with pride whenever he talked about his life in the military family. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 138 and was very passionate about the Poppy Campaign.
Richard is survived by his daughters, Suzanne (Bill) Walsh, Kentville, Rita Wall (Calgary); four grandchildren, Zack and Sofie (Walsh), Jason and Justin Gillies; sisters, Sr. Mary Terrance, West Virgina, Joan (Raymond) Boudreau, Brenda (John), Boston, Mary Gibson, Kentville and Pamela (Austin) Langlois; brothers, Lorne (Sandra), Clyde River, John (Beverly) Wall, Toronto, Billy (Candice), BC and Earl (Darlene), Sydney. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents he was predeceased by his step-father, Robert Sampson; brother, Charlie, Billy (Lucy), and sister, Shirley (Tommy).

The family would like to thank the staff of 4A and CCU at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Doctor Paul Macdonald, Doctor Archibald and Doctor Naqvi.


Passed on: February 8th, 2017

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our father John "Binky" Rose who suddenly, but peacefully passed away on February 8, 2017. Our father was a much loved and respected man in Westmount and beyond. Our father was a military man through and through and began serving his country in 1968. He later joined the Airborne and was a paratrooper who made over 300 jumps. 14 years after that he joined the construction engineers, and later 1CEU, where he made his decision to retire from the military and move back "home". Even though he was retired that didn't keep him still. For the next 20 years he was a park supervisor at Two Rivers Wildlife Park, a job he thoroughly enjoyed. He was also the Vice President and bar chairman at Branch 126, Westmount Legion. For 20 years he was also involved greatly with the Westmount Volunteer Fire department, where he served as their training officer. Our father was an avid hunter, fisher, and trapper, the ultimate woodsman. He was the strongest man we've ever know and the best grampy our children could have asked for. He was predeceased by the love of his love, his wife, Maureen and his parents, Vince and Rose. He is survived by his three children, Michelle, Joshua (Sara), and Melanie (Shaun); grandchildren, Sarah, Caleb, Jocelyn (Mike), Owen, Frankie, Molly, Miss Em and his little buddy, James (Jam) also great-grandson, Jaxen.
