J. Conrad Linloff
LINLOFF, J. Conrad, Port Hawkesbury - age 56, formerly of Lower L’Ardoise passed away on Sunday, January 12, 2020, at home after a yearlong battle with cancer.
Born in Arichat he was the son of Edward Linloff and the Late Cecilia (Masters) Linloff. While living in L’Ardoise he worked at St. Richmond Hospital and was an active member of the L’Ardoise Fire Department, which played an active role in his career at Nustar Energy which spanned 25 years.
In his spare time he enjoyed barbecuing, the Blue Jays and a very cold beer, not necessarily in that order. He loved his motorcycle and sitting by a campfire. He especially loved his daughters and his Shih-Tzu Bailey. A favourite memory for him was watching Oak Island with his family and taking the tour.
Left to mourn is his loving wife, Adele (Fox), daughters, Taylor and Madison, both at home; brothers, Kevin (Sherry), NF; Jason, Dartmouth; and sister; Charmaine (Michael), L’Ardoise; nieces, Jenna and Harper and nephews, Jordan and Reagan.
He was predeceased by his mother, Cecilia, both sets of maternal and paternal grandparents, and sister, Mary Colleen Linloff.
Thank You to his cancer care team, Dr. Pluta, Dr. Saliba and Dr. Beechem. To all the nurses in Oncology and emergency at St. Martha’s thank you for your care and kindness especially Pam who always made him smile. To his Palliative care team, Dr. Allan and his coffee buddy nurse Kyla and the members of the VON team thank you for helping allow Conrad to die at home as per his wishes.
The biggest thank you extends to George Wright and his fellow co-workers at Nustar Energy. "The best place in the world to work and the best people to work with. They truly are family."
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Cathy’s Place, the cancer resource room at St. Martha’s for the purchase of gas cards for cancer patients and their families or a charity of ones choice.
