Sheila Marie Melnick

Born In: Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: May 5th, 2012

Words cannot express the sadness and pain felt by the passing of my
loving mom Sheila, at my home, on May 5, 2012. Surrounded by many
special family members and friends she fought an amazingly difficult
but short battle with pancreatic cancer. Her strength, courage, and
determination was a true inspiration to us all. Her bravery shown
will never be forgotten. It was so obvious her family was her first
love, however, bingo was her second.
Born in Glace Bay, she was the daughter of Frank and Margaret (Payne) Melnick.
She is survived by her best friend Charl, dear son Shane, devoted
daughter Charlene, special son-in-law Kevin, and dearly loved
grandsons, Brad, Jordan and Colby, her "little Poopski Whoopski" whom
will never forget her, I promise. She will be greatly missed by all
her family, friends, and bingo buddies. Now she is finally at peace
with her parents, sister, and little brother.
Visitation will be held Monday May 7 at the S.W. Chant & Son Funeral
Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A funeral
service will held 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 8 in the funeral home chapel
with Rev. Sheldon Chant officiating. Reception to follow. Interment
to be held in St. James Cemetery, Gardiner Mines.

Robert Wright Alexander 'Bob' Boyd

Born In: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: May 4th, 2012

Robert Wright Alexander 'Bob' Boyd, 53, passed away Friday, May 4,
2012, surrounded by family after a valiant battle with cancer.
The son of Jean and the late Earle Boyd, Bob grew up in Halifax
attending Halifax West and then Saint Mary's where he graduated with
a bachelor of commerce and an MBA. Bob was employed throughout his
career with the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism.
Bob spent eight years managing the Nova Scotia Tourism Office in
Portland, Maine. It was here wonderful friendships and memories were
forged through coaching hockey and the many hockey trips throughout
New England and Sweden. Charlie, Barbara, Jennifer, Sarah and Chad
Drew of Portland became his second family.
When Bob returned to Halifax he met the love of his life, Kim
Jardine. Kim is the best thing that ever happened to Bob. Bob was
also devoted to Grandma Jean's third grandchild, Molly the cat who in
recent months was his devoted companion.
Throughout his life, Bob was always a sports fan. He played hockey
throughout school and then coached teams in Halifax, Portland,
Bedford, most recently assisting with the C P Allen High School team,
"the Cheetah Family".
Bob had a love of travelling. He enjoyed frequent jaunts to Maine
where with Kim's assistance he honed his shopping skills. Visits to
Kim's family compound in Boularderie let him reconnect with his Cape
Breton roots. His love of all things British made London a favourite
destination. Bob's other great passion was reading. Bob was rarely
seen without multiple books and newspapers. While the purist in him
preferred the joy of hard covered, lofty tomes, he did recently adapt
to his Kindle.
Bob was truly a gifted individual, one of the most intelligent people
you could meet. He was a man of strong opinions who did not tolerate
fools. He was deeply private and, at times, a man of very few words,
as his family often found out when trying to find out what he was up
to. Bob was a devoted son who always was there for his mother. Even
when very ill, her health and well being were paramount. His dry wit,
often tinged with a hint of sarcasm, kept everyone on their toes. Bob
had a great sense of humour which allowed him to develop the ability
to tease anyone. Most importantly, he genuinely cared about people
and always acted on that with kindness and generosity.
Bob had a rare ability to relate to children. He was always "one of
the kids". This continued throughout his coaching. Bob had a special
relationship with his nieces and nephew, whether playing Lego,
cheering them on at soccer and football games, calling to hear about
their most recent adventures, teasing or just showing constant love
and support. Uncle Bobby was always interested in all their successes
and activities. He was the perfect uncle-fun, quirky, indulgent,
supportive and always proud.
Bob is survived by his wife Kim Jardine; mother Jean Boyd; sister
Cathy Boyd (Brian Warshick); niece Samantha Warshick; nephew Alex
Warshick; in-laws Wayne and Doreen Jardine; brother-in-law Kyle
Jardine and wife Sylvia; special nieces Lindsey and Lily Jardine and
the Jardine family grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Special thanks to the VON, Palliative Care nurses and doctors, Dr.
Mark Dorreen, Oncology nurse Lynn Shore, the chemo nurses, Peter and
Maria Hayes, John Brennan and "the Tourism Family" for their
incredible support during Bob's illness.
Donations may be made in Bob's memory to Colorectal Cancer
Association of Canada, Diabetes Association or a charity of choice.
Bob will always be remembered for the person he was. He will be loved
and missed.
