George Hector Blue


There entered into rest at Riverview Manor, Montague, March 6, 1989, George Hector Blue of Little Sands aged 89 years. George was born December 29, 1899, son of the late Angus and Margaret (MacNeill) Blue. On October 30, 1929 he married May MacLean, who predeceased him, February 22, 1973. He spent most of his life in Little Sands, where he was a successful lobster fisherman until his retirement at 71 years.

George was truly a fine gentleman, his hard work, honesty and willingness to help others earned him the respect of his friends and neighbours in the community. He was a quiet man, who loved his home and was very devoted to his family.

He was predeceased by a brother Alexander, a sister Dorothy, and three sons in infancy.

Funeral service was held March 10 from Wood Islands Presbyterian Church with service conducted by Rev. Roger MacPhee. During the service, a duet "Never Grow Old" was beautifully rendered by Harold and Tillie MacLeod. Congregational hymns were Let the Lower Lights Be Burning and In the Sweet Bye and Bye. Organist was Mrs. Joyce Taylor.

The service was attended by staff members from Division of Aging, Jamieson Electric and Consumers Distributing.

Pallbearers were: Frankie Panting, Ethan Garrett, Lester White, Charles Stewart, Malcolm MacLean and Lorin Panting.

Flowerbearers were grandsons: Kevin Wheeler, Gary Wheeler, Kent Wheeler, Randy Proud, Barry Proud, Jimmy Moore and Alex Stewart.

He was laid to rest beside his wife in Little Sands Cemetery.

The years may bring some changes

But one thing they'll never do

Is change the love and pride, Dear Dad

We've always held for you.


We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Lorne Bonnell for his care and kindness to Dad over the years, to staff at Riverview Manor, Ferguson Hamilton Funeral Home, Rev. Roger MacPhee, pallbearers, flowerbearers, organist, choir and Harold and Tillie MacLeod. Also a special thanks to Frankie Panting for his help and kindness.
