Ralph Patrick Myatt

Age 56

Little Dover, Guysborough County



Passed away at home on Monday, July 25th, 2022 surrounded by his family and friends. Ralph was the son of the late Lawrence and Catherine (Munroe) Myatt, Little Dover. He was a loving husband, father, puppy, brother, uncle and devoted friend to many.

Ralph loved being surrounded with his family especially his grandchildren, nieces and nephews, whom he loved to spoil with treats and torment whenever they visited. He was also such an outgoing, social butterfly who was a ball of fun to be around.

He enjoyed card plays, boating, tinkering in his garage and Saturday night get togethers with family and friends in his brother’s garage. His favourite pastime was going out driving whether alone in his community or on an adventure exploring different communities with his family and niece Claire, going down any back road they could find along the way, always finding someone to stop and chat with and making lifelong friends, who is always kept in contact with either in person or by phone. Ralph was a big-hearted guy and would quickly give you anything he had especially if you needed it or liked it, no matter if he himself had to do without.

He was a jack of all trades, able to fix anything put in front of him and if you didn’t know, he knew. He worked in both construction and carpentry for various companies including companies owned by his Uncles Alcide Myatt, (Construction) and Gerard Myatt (Carpentry) and other companies such as VanZutphen, Nova Construction, Lindsay Construction and before his illness with Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS). He worked for Alva Construction as well as doing carpentry work on his own.

Ralph was a member of St Agnes Parish, Little Dover, Carpenters Union Local 1388 and a former member of Strait Area Ground Search and Rescue (SAR) having worked on the Swiss Air disaster off Peggy's Cove. He was also a former member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Ralph is survived by his loving wife, Mary (Snow) Myatt, Daughters, Lori Ann (Jeff) Rhynold, Marissa Doyle (Colten), Kendra Myatt (Ryan). Sons- John (Judy) Cook, & Lawrence Myatt. Grandchildren, Peyton, Marlee, Maci, Holden & Aubrey Rhynold, Tyson, Isaiah, Chloe, & Isabella Doyle, Jacob Cook, and Ashlyn Sleigh.
