It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Paul MacIsaac at the age of 81, on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.
Paul is survived by his wife of 54 years, Rosemarie (MacNeil) MacIsaac; four children, James (Tina), John (Tracy), Betty and Pauline (Louie); 15 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren, and sister, Claire (Robert Pedlar), Hamilton, ON.
Paul was predeceased by his parents, Elsie and Malcom MacIsaac.
Paul began his working career in the Canadian Armed Forces with the Black Watch. This was the first of many jobs and adventures from working on the Coast Guard boats, building boats and woodworking of all types.
Paul had a great love of music and could play a number of instruments, the guitar being his first choice, followed by the accordion. Many Sunday nights were spent in the basement playing snooker and music with his lifelong friend, Stephen Ling and whoever else showed up.
A very special thank you to all the nurses and staff at Celtic Court, and 4B at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, who gave excellent care of Paul in his time of need.
“Paul, you left us on our special day, our 54th anniversary. Have a wonderful day enjoying the ones that went before you. May your ship always sail in calm waters now. Love you forever, Rose.”
Visitation and memorial service to celebrate the life of Paul MacIsaac will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church St.), Whitney Pier on Saturday, August 19, 2023. A gathering of family and friends will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. with the memorial service to follow at 2 p.m. in the All Faith Chapel with Fr. Paul Murphy officiating. Interment will take place in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks, at a later date.
Donations in memory of Paul may be made to Paws Mart in Whitney Pier or the Alzheimer Society.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
Sorry for your loss RIP
