With profound sadness, we announce that after a brief illness, our wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed away on Friday, September 13, 2019 while surrounded by his loving family in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital’s ICU.
Born in Sydney, March 1, 1945, Lincoln was the son of the late Wilfred ‘Billy’ and Sarah ‘Sadie’ MacPhee.
Lincoln was a family man who dedicated his life to his wife, four children and nine grandchildren. Lincoln started working at a young age and spent most of his working career with Joneljim where he diligently maintained the properties and truly enjoyed caring for the tenants. When not working, Lincoln loved spending time in Ben Eoin with Carol and cherished having his kids and grandchildren with him.
Lincoln is survived by Carol (Moore), his loving wife of 53 years; children, Darlene (Gary Jennings), Greg (Roseann Currie), Trevor and Scott; nine treasured grandchildren, Max, Maggie, Michael and Mark Jennings, Owen and Emma MacPhee, Anna and Caroline MacPhee, and Mya MacPhee. Also left to mourn are his siblings, Ann MacDonald, Hughena MacIntyre, Wilma Pyke (Tom), Raymond (Janet); sister-in-law, Linda MacPhee and brother-in-law, Paul Dickson. He will be missed greatly by his in-laws, Clara McCarron, Diane Moore, Terry (Mary) Moore, Colleen (Mike MacPherson), Brian (Catherine) Moore, Keith Moore and Frank Balmas as well as many nieces and nephews in both the MacPhee and Moore families.
In addition to his parents, Lincoln was predeceased by his siblings, Donnie, Kay (Dickson) and brother-in- law, Angus MacDonald. Lincoln was also preceded by members of the Moore family, Michael ‘Mick’ and Cecilia, Kenny, Trish Balmas, Gregory and Michelle and brother-in-law Terry McCarron.
The family would like to thank the medical staff of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital who were very caring and thoughtful throughout the last nine weeks.
