Albert David Beresford


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our father, grandfather, brother , uncle and friend, Albert David Beresford, age 65 on Friday, April 5, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer at home.

Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Douglas and Roberta (Wadden) Beresford.  Dave spent many years working for Devco and travelling back and forth out west.  He volunteered for 30 years with the Vince Ryan Tournament which he enjoyed every minute of it.  His most cherished pastime was with his grandchildren, his pride and joy.

Dave is survived by his sons, Shannon (Lily), Michael; Yvonne, the mother of their boys. Also surviving are his beautiful grandchildren, whom he cherished since the first day he saw their faces, Wyatt, Ontario, Emerald and Asia, whom he resided with; his brothers, Bobby, Wayne (Susan), Billy (Wendy) and sister, Marlene (George) as well as many nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Visitation will be held Friday, April 12, from 6-9 p.m. and Saturday, April 13 from 11-1 pm with a service to follow at 1:00 p.m. with Rev. Melvin Wheaton officiating all taking place at T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, 370 Reserve St., Glace Bay, NS  (902-849-4199). A reception to follow.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the cancer unit, CBRH for all their care and attention given to Dave during this time.
