It is with much sadness that we, the family announce the peaceful passing of our brother, Sandy MacArthur following a massive stroke, on Thursday, April 18, 2024, in Sydney.

Born on November 20, 1945, Sandy lived in Sydney and was a son of the late John and Margaret (Gillis) MacArthur.


Sandy is survived by his children, Sean (Jen), Kim (Shelly) and JR (Chrystal); grandchildren, Gabrielle, Tyler, Caitland, Dillan, Kelsey, Gil, Darby and Caleb; great-granddaughter, Charlotte; brother, Hughie; sisters, Betty Farrell and AnneMarie Barry; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, Sandy was predeceased by his brother, Jackie.

Sandy will be fondly remembered for his quick wit and talent to write poetic verse and songs, which were filled with story and humour. He worked many years for Devco, retiring as the Main Control Operator of the Devco Wash Plant. Sandy will be missed by all who knew him.

The family would like to thank Social Worker, Lynn Anne Rossiter, for all her help and dedication, Pier Community Funeral Home, CBRH, EHS and Fr. Conrad Edwards, for their care for Sandy in his time of need.

Visitation and memorial service to celebrate the life of Sandy MacArthur will be held at a later date.

Donations in memory of Sandy may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

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