Whitney Pier

It is with broken hearts that we, the family, regret to announce the passing of Laddie Chalupa on Thursday, May 12, 2022, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born on August 6, 1939, Laddie was the son of the late Ludwig and Mary (Chmiel) Chalupa.

Laddie was born and raised in Whitney Pier. He was a letter carrier for 35 years with Canada Post before retiring. He loved life and always made the best of any situation. Laddie was loved by all who knew him, and he will be forever missed and remembered.

Laddie is survived by his brother, Alan Chalupa; niece, Crystal Gouthro (Barry Brown); great-niece, Janaya Gallant and caregiver, Candis Collen. He is also survived by his three dogs, whom he loved dearly.

Besides his parents, Laddie was predeceased by his sister, Bernice and brothers, Terry, and Leonard.

Family gives a special thank you to the VON for the amazing care they gave to Laddie at his time of need.

There will be no visitation for the late Laddie Chalupa. A private family memorial service to celebrate the life of Laddie will be held at a later date.

Donations in memory of Laddie may be made to the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

Until we meet again.

Rest in Peace Laddie. You were a gentle man and always had a smile for whom ever you seen. He walked so fast that if you wanted to give him a Christmas card you had to watch for him. I was lucky to know him. My condolences to the family and friends. 🙏
