Eric Howard Winsor


Eric Howard Winsor

WINSOR, Eric Howard – Age 73, Port Hawkesbury passed away with family by his side on Thursday, May 23, 2019, in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney. Born in North Sydney, he was a son of the late Walter "Dick" and Marguerite (Camus) Winsor.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Eleanor (MacGillivray); children, Darlene (Peter), Truro; Eric Jr. (Karen), Port Hawkesbury; Rhonda (Adam), Tantallon; Brian (Samantha), Fredericton; grandchildren, Riley, Maggie and Auston.

Eric was retired from Nova Scotia Power, where he was employed for 31 years and for a period of time served as councillor with the Town of Port Hawkesbury. Eric was well known for his love of Christmas and the beautiful Christmas displays that brought joy to young and old alike. He was a jack of all trades and could pretty much accomplish anything he put his mind to, from wood working to photography, although his greatest love was for his family and especially his grandchildren.

Special thanks to the staff of the Renal Clinic and especially Dr. Hewlett, as well as the nurses on Unit 4A of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
