ROBART – Harland R., “Beatle”, 70, of East Port l’Herbert, Queens County, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, March 8, 2018.
Born in Barrington Passage, Shelburne County, he was a son of the late Lindsay and Awilda (Broughm) Robart.
Beatle was a hardworking fisherman for over 50 years. When he wasn’t fishing, he was enjoying the company of his family and friends. He loved to play cards and pool, loved to dance when the mood struck, working and driving his ‘66 Ford Meteor with the top down. He enjoyed attending “Chase The Ace” in Port Mouton when his health allowed and have a “nice, friendly argument” with Radar from time to time. His favourite saying was “Who has more fun than people?” The answer? “Monkeys”. He was not the type of man to show it or say it, but he was extremely proud of his children and grandchildren. He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his family, his friends and all who had the privilege of knowing him.
He is survived by his loving wife of over 40 years Edith (Mayo); his daughter Sally (Troy) Wolfe of Milton; his son Lindsey (Kayleigh Colp) of East Port l’Herbert. His grandchildren Nathan Wolfe, Dayton, Hayden, Lindsey and Miranda Robart and Kaylin Lavender. His sisters Connie Enslow of Green Harbour and Marion Bourquin of BC. His brother Terry (Cathy) Cranton of Port l’Herbert.
Beatle was predeceased by his son Ricky, his sisters Coleta and Dorothy and his brothers Cavanaugh, Jack and Gordon.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool where visitation and prayer service will be held on Monday, March 12, 2018 from 7 until 9 p.m. No flowers by request, donations may be made to the family. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

Howard & Charlotte Callahan
Dear Edith and family,
Beatle, you were our good friend for many years – a constant addition to our gatherings on the back deck of our cottage. You’d come in, fill your favourite glass and greet ‘the captain’ on it. We’d play washers, where your talent shone and engaged in light and heavy conversation (don’t get you going on politics). You played to win and when we’d play cards, watch out if your partner made a bad move. You’d look up and shout, “White whiskers…”! But you loved life. You often used to say, “Who has more fun than people!” You worked very hard from a very early age. You met your long time friend, Chess while off-shore scalloping. When you were about to get your captain’s papers, you abandoned this and scalloping to be close to Edith, the love of your life. You tried many jobs over the years (some out west) but eventually bought your own lobster boat – close to home and your family. You tried your talent at cooking and you were a winner there as well (we had your lobster chowder and lobster sandwiches, but unfortunately not your famous scallop omelet). Though having roots in Port Mouton, you always bragged that things were done better in Port L’Herbert. Beatle, you were larger than life – a man who has suffered great loss. You always showed courage – from pulling your own teeth to the courage and tenacity to stay alive just one more day with Edith at your side. Our heart goes out to you, Edith and to the family. May peace come with a memory of Beatle still dancing to good old ‘Rock and Roll’.
