NICHOLSON, Cavell "Cubby" - It is with sadness that the family of Cavell "Cubby" Nicholson, Sydney Mines, announce his 
passing on October 14, 2006. Born in Sydney Mines on November 13, 1915, he was a son of Daniel and Christena (MacIntyre) 
Nicholson. Cubby was a devoted member of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Sydney Mines, since early childhood. He was a 
respected elder and especially enjoyed being a member of the choir and the Men's Fellowship group. He was also a member of 
the Masonic Lodge and a former Sydney Mines town councillor. A coal miner for some 45 years, he retired from Prince Mine as 
Underground Manager in 1980. Cubby was well-known in coal mining circles in Sydney Mines and was revered and respected by 
his coworkers for his fairness and professionalism. He was the last survivor of the runaway rake trip in Princess Colliery 
on December 6, 1938, and his account of this accident is soon to be a feature of an upcoming book on coal mining in Cape 
Breton. Cubby was blessed with a disarming sense of humour and a personal charm that affected all who came in contact with 
him. He was a devoted husband and a fiercely proud father of his children as well as a joy to his grandchildren. The recent 
arrivals of three great-grandchildren further brightened his perspective on life. He is survived by his loving wife of 63 
years, Vera (Bragg); daughters, Judy (John) Angel, St. Margaret's Bay; Brenda Nicholson, Halifax; Dr. Deborah (Bev) 
Stymiest, Fredericton; daughter-in-law, Debbie Nicholson, Bedford; sons, Calvin (Doris) Nicholson, Dartmouth; Dale (Wendy)

Tara Nicholson, Lake Louise, Alta.; Erinn Nicholson, Halifax; great-grandchildren, Brianna, Samuel, and Kaia; numerous 
nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by son, Brian; brother, Archibald; sisters, Madonna, Christena, Annie; half-sister, 
Nynette, and half-brother, Keith. Special thanks to neighbour, Clare; nephews, Gary and wife Alta, Richard and wife 
Charlene, along with nieces, Sandra, Lynn and Anne, who were a source of love and devotion to Cubby and Vera, especially 
during these past few months. Visitation was held 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Monday in J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main St., Sydney 
Mines. Funeral will be held in St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church at 2 p.m. today with Rev. Ken MacRae officiating. Burial in
