In Loving Memory of Sonny Fancie

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a beloved husband, father, brother, and grandfather, Sonny (Walter) Fancie. He departed this world on January 20, 2024. Sonny leaves behind a legacy of warmth, kindness, and cherished memories that will forever echo in our hearts.

Sonny is survived by his devoted wife, Cindy, and their sons Brandon and Ryan (Lindsay). He was a pillar of strength and a source of unwavering support for his family. Sonny’s love and guidance will continue to inspire his children and grandchildren Justice, Solace, Grayer, and Aubrey.

He is fondly remembered by his sister, Pam (Edward) Whynot, and is predeceased by his parents, Walter and Eunice. Sonny is reunited with his brothers Ronald Weir and Dean (Isobel) Weir, and sisters Debbie Burgess and Wendy Moreau and long time friend Donny Turner. 

 He leaves behind a cherished brother-in-law, Richard Burgess, and sister-in-law, Margaret Love, as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, friend Farmer Mike (Val) Gefle and a host of other friends.

Sonny’s impact on the lives of those around him was profound. His warm smile, generous spirit, and genuine care for others created lasting connections. He will be remembered not only for the love he shared within his family but also for the friendships that enriched his life.

His passion for fishing, golfing, and travel spoke volumes about his adventurous spirit and the joy he found in exploring the world around him. He loved the many travel adventures he had with his niece Cheryl Wentzell and her husband Courtney. In the kitchen, Sonny’s culinary skills were a testament to his love for creating and sharing. His mastery of East Coast dishes and seafood chowder showcased not only his love for cooking but also his deep connection to his roots. 

May Sonny rest in peace, and may his memory continue to be a source of comfort and inspiration to us all.

A Celebration of Life for family and friends will be held in both Alberta and Nova Scotia at a later date.
