James Daniel "Jimmy" MacNabb

1923 - 2016
On the beautiful morning of Monday, January 4, 2016, while fairies were dancing on the fresh new snow, our Dad was scooped up, most probably by Saint Teresa and carried off to join our mama Pearl (Roberts-Fanning), who’s heart he’s missed for the past three years. Also his Dad and Mom, Jack and May (MacKinnon), brothers and sisters Frankie, Mary (Andy) Cannon, and Marion Hazelwood, the chain will no longer be broken.

Jimmy was born on September 21, 1923 in Grand Tracadie. He had an adventurous soul and spent his childhood roaming through woods and following streams. At the age of 16 he went overseas first with the P.E.I. Highlanders and then with the West Nova Scotia Regiment. Over the next 5 years he would develop some of the closest and strongest relationships of his life. He was very much looking forward to seeing those guys again. Our Jimmy was a romantic husband. He often wrote poetry and stories and brought our mom flowers and he made our lives magical. He made every fairy tale come to life, he fixed every hurt, he kissed us and hugged us and loved and taught us. He was funny and witty. He was a kind, gentle man with friends as well as family. He was first and foremost a fisherman and loved the water. He was a jack of all trades and thanks to his knack for plumbing, most of the out houses in the area were demolished by the mid sixties. He dabbled in wood working. put paint to the canvas, he was an inventor of some pretty scary but enthralling projects and a concoctor of some questionable medicinal brews from time to time. He was a teller of stories, always interesting, never boring. He witnessed the Zeppelin, Halley’s Comet and most recently Victor Clow’s Christmas display and thought they were all pretty amazing. Now he’s off on his biggest adventure yet. He’ll be having some good time. Waiting here, smiling through some tears are his children, Betty (Fanning) Watts, Carrie (Tim Banks), Roy (Brenda), Lionel (Connie McInnis), Cindy (Tony Arbing), his grandchildren and great grandchildren, in-laws, the late Clarence, Bob, the late Frank, Bev Culligan, the late George, Carl and the late Fred Roberts.

Resting at the Hennessey Cutcliffe Charlottetown Funeral Home until Friday afternoon, then transferred to St. Michaels’s Church Corran Ban for funeral mass at 3:30 p.m. Visiting hours will be held on Thursday from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Charlottetown Branch #1 of the Royal Canadian Legion will hold a Veterans Tribute Service at the funeral home on Thursday at 4:45 p.m.

If so desired memorial contributions may be made to Home Care Palliative Care or the C.N.I.B. On-line condolences may be made at www.islandowned.ca.

Harold Vincent Mahar

1925 - 2013
It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of a dear father and cherished husband whose love and spirit will forever live in our hearts. As was his final wish, he was surrounded by family and passed away on Wednesday, November 6, 2013 peacefully at home in his 89th year. Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by Odella “Babe” (nee Ferguson), his wife and soul mate of 64 years; devoted and loving father of Charlene (George Nickels), Farley (Susan), Garth (Louise), and Heather (Joey Cairns). Vince’s legacy is his children. Cherished grandfather of 13; Warren, Jason, Kelly, Jeff, Tyler, James, Melissa, Amy, Cassidy, Colin, Brodie, Greg, Laura and 12 great-grandchildren. Lovingly remembered by his surviving brother Ray (Dora), and sisters-in-law Marie Mahar, Hilda Szalay, Thelma Misener, and Florence McNichol. He will be greatly missed by his many nieces and nephews. 
Predeceased by his parents, Herbert and Matilda Mahar, and brothers Bob, Reg, Lornie, Howard and Freeman. 

Vince was a proud WWII veteran and served as an Able Seaman (Gunnery Rating) from June 1942 to the war’s end and post war as well as a period of time in the Reserve Navy. He was employed with Canada Packers for 31 years until their closing. 

He will be forever remembered for his love and pride of his family and love of his home life and anything “Irish”. The humor, love and laughter he brought to our lives with his straight forwardness and quick wit, will be with us always. He nurtured his creative spirit throughout his life and took pleasure in being the family’s “Mr Fix-It”; expressing his love and talent through his many projects for family and friends. He could turn his hand to anything. He was our “walking dictionary” with the amazing ability to spell or know the meaning of any word presented to him. He loved to read and kept up with current events right up to the end. It is with great sadness that we bid him goodbye but he will forever be in our hearts and memories. The family would like to extend their deepest thanks fo the staff of Home Care and Palliative Care, Dr. Veer, and Dr. Don Clark, for providing such caring and compassionate support in his final days.

Ronald Daniel McInnis

2014
Veteran of Second World War. Ronnie passed away at the Garden Home, Charlottetown, on Saturday, March 15, 2014.
He was born in St. Peter’s Bay on November 4, 1918, and his family moved to Morell around the time of the Second World War. He enlisted in the army when war was declared and was a member of tP.E.I. Highlanders Black Watch Regiment. During the war he was stationed all across the country from B.C. to Newfoundland.
Ronnie was a gentle, quiet, hard-working family man who never wanted to be the centre of attention. But all that changed when he stepped on a rink, where he was a fierce competitor and one of the most talented amateur hockey players of his era. Many people felt he could have played in the NHL had he wanted to; which might be true because while playing with the Canadian Army team during the Second World War he played on a line with two NHL players.
Ronnie’s talent and artistry were not limited to the ice. During his 40 years as a welder with Proud and Moreside he designed and built numerous intricate ornamental iron installations all over the Island.
We are filled with gratitude to have been so fortunate to have had Ronnie as our father, grandfather, father-in-law, brother, uncle, and friend.
Dear father of Beverly Mednick (Leo) and Kenneth McInnis. Loving grandfather of Sean and Jessica McInnis. Brother of Mae Grant (Eric, deceased) and Lyman McInnis (Anne). Lovingly remembered by his special nieces, Clara Lawton and Cookie McDonald.
Predeceased by his loving wife, Lila (McGrath); by his parents, Joseph and Katie (MacDonald) McInnis; by his siblings, Art (Betty), Ethel MacDonald (Barney), Edith MacEwen (Doug) and Joseph (Joan).
Resting at Belvedere Funeral Home. Funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Pius X Church on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Interment later in St. Theresa of the Little Flower Church Cemetery, Morell. To respect Ronald’s wishes there will be no visitation.
