LESLIE – Arthur Cyril, 85 of Ridgewood, Bridgewater, formerly of Port Mouton, passed away on Friday, July 5th, 2013.
Born February 27, 1928, he was a son of the late Marshall and Doris (Armitage) Leslie.
Cyril lived all his life in his beloved Port Mouton. He had his own family painting business for over 50 years retiring in his late sixties. He loved it when a government lighthouse needed to be painted because it brought him closer to his passion of the sea. In the off season when he was not painting, he was in Port Mouton Bay catching lobsters. After his retirement, he and his second wife, Mary, traveled to British Columbia to visit his sister and they traveled on many other road trips throughout Canada, visiting numerous provinces, visiting relatives and friends and having many adventures along the way. Dad lived a long and happy life, did all that he wanted and now is at peace.
He leaves to mourn his second dear and loving wife Mary (Lawson)(Book), his children Valerie (Donald) Inness of Port Mouton, Hal (Pearle (MacDonald)) of Port mouton, Mary Lynn (Ronald) Connolly of Brooklyn. Step sons Rick, Bill, Bob, David, Mike and Ken Book. His grandchildren Adrian Inness, Tanya (Connolly) Winchester, Amber (Connolly) Purdy, Todd Leslie, Adam Leslie, great grandchildren Chelsey and Sam Purdy, Skyler and Rogan Winchester, Lauren, Addison and Bree Leslie. His sister Florence Hardy of Nanaimo, BC.
He was predeceased by his first love, his wife of 46 years, Madge (Winters).
