It is with great sadness that we, the family announce the sudden passing of Malcolm Alex MacLeod, age 61, on Monday, July 1, 2019 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

Born in Sydney, Malcolm Alex was the son of Ramsey (Ann) MacLeod, Marion Bridge and Marjorie ‘Diddy’ MacLeod, Halifax.

Malcolm will be remembered by his family, Belva (Jim) Hawkins, Halifax, Raymond, Sydney, Beverly (Mark Martin) MacLeod, Quebec and his father-in-law, Gordon ‘Bud’ Chiasson, Coxheath.

Malcolm grew up in Framboise running the roads and lobster fishing, he started his career as a tractor trailer instructor and finished his career as a heavy lift crane operator. He travelled the country working on major projects.

Malcolm enjoyed spending his time at the family bungalow in Boisdale, lighting enormous bonfires and telling stories. He also spent his time in the garage, boating and driving his Harley.

Donations in memory of Malcolm may be made to the NS SPCA Cape Breton Chapter.

Very sad to hear of Malcolm Alec’s passing. Did not know him well as a kid as I was gone from Framboise then. Met him belatedly at my brother Allen’s place a few years ago and had a good talk then! … special hello to Raymond! … chin up! ….

So very sad to hear of Malcie’s passing. I played pick-up hockey with Malcie at the college on Mondays and Thursday’s . We shared many laughs and stories. He was always the life of the dressing room. He will be missed. Deepest sympathies to all his family.

Just wanted to say how shocked and saddened we were to hear of Malchy’s death and how,  in my mind, he was a larger than life individual. Lots of great memories and deep, deep belly laughs came from conversations with Malchy. We wish you strength and support.
