SEWELL, Roy - 86, Dartmouth, passed away peacefully at home with his family present on August 7, 2007. He was born in Hamilton, Ont., on March 23, 1921. Roy was a very gentle, patient, compassionate, generous, courageous, fun loving and devoted family man, who was loved and respected by all. He was especially a wonderful husband, dad and "paba". He had a razor sharp and quick wit; enjoyed hearing and telling jokes and was often involved in many a good prank during his navy days. He always enjoyed a good wager or bet and was a skilled coupon and discount specialist. He loved animals and children and even kept treats for passing dogs in the trunk of his car (they knew it). Volunteering was an integral part of his life. Some of the organizations included The Maritime Paraplegic Association, The Canadian Bible Society and The Nova Scotia Square and Round Dance Federation. He left school early to help support two families during depression years. He worked at Canadian
Westinghouse for a couple of years before he volunteered for the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve (RCNVR) serving on the HMCS St. Laurent, HMCS Annapolis and then Magnetic Mine Sweeping in Dartmouth. Following the war, he completed high school (in seven months) and then went on to earn his B.Comm. in 1951 (Dalhousie) and Chartered Accountancy (1953). He worked for Lee and Martin, Chartered Accountants, for about six years and then joined the Federal Public Service with Revenue Canada Taxation in 1957. In 1962, he became an auditor with the Auditor General of Canada. He concluded his career in March 1978 as the Regional Audit Manager for the Atlantic Provinces. During retirement, he was strongly encouraged by Jean to take up square and round dancing, which they thoroughly enjoyed many times a week for 21 years. They also enjoyed traveling, golfing, camping and their trailer in Sherwood Forest Trailer Park (Coldbrook) for almost 20 years. They were so active that they
were hard to find at home (check the restaurants). He is survived by his loving wife of almost 65 years, Jean (Black); daughter, Jan (Weisenburger) and husband Bill, Pine Lake, Alta., and son, Ron and wife Anne, Ottawa, Ont.; son-in-law, Marvin Butlin. He was predeceased by his daughter, Marilyn (Butlin). He is also survived by his sister, Norma (Stoneman) and husband Gordon, Newmarket, Ont.; cousin, Edna and husband Pete Gurney, Burlington, Ont.; grandchildren, Keri Butlin (Bruce) and Jeff Butlin, Robert and David Sewell, and Chris and Cory Weisenburger; great-grandchildren, Kristina Sewell and Leigh Bruce; nieces, Valerie, Elizabeth, Heather and Bonnie, and nephews, John and Bill. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 11, in Stairs Memorial United Church, 44 Hester St., Dartmouth, followed by a reception in the hall. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory to the Canadian Cancer Society, a charity of your choice or the QEII Palliative Care
