MacDONALD, Blaise - St. Andrews Channel. I am sad to announce that in the early morning hours of Monday, June 5, 2006, my father, and my hero, passed away suddenly in his sleep. He leaves behind myself, Sean - his son - and most importantly his best friend and matching "book end", my mom, his wife, Lois MacDonald. To say he loved her would be the understatement of the century. He also leaves behind two extended daughters - my wife, Gabriella MacDonald, who lost her own dad when she was 13 - and who lovingly referred to Dad as her own dad and my aunt, and mom's sister, Winnie Everett - who moved in with us as a family member after the death of her mom, my grandmother. I write this obituary sitting on the Bras d'Or Lakes with my mom by my side - in the place that he loved the most. Professionally, his achievements are too numerous to list here - except to say that he traded his work boots for a law degree from Dalhousie in 1977 - graduating as president of his class. He was an avid trade unionist and a tireless supporter of the underdog. Aside from his wife and son, he is survived by his brother (and buddy), Father Stanley MacDonald; his brother, Dennis MacDonald; sisters, Carol Gatchalian, Mary MacEachern and Evelyn Sampson. He was predeceased by his mother, Sarah (Sal) MacDonald; father, Dan A. MacDonald; brothers, Sean MacDonald, Joseph MacDonald, Brenton MacDonald and Eric MacDonald; sisters, Theresa "Effie" MacDonald, Audrey MacDonald and Marilyn Ferguson. He was also predeceased by his loyal pup, Nikki. Services will take place at St. Anne's Parish, Main Street, Glace Bay on Thursday, June 8, at 2 p.m.
