John Lynne Carey

On December 20th 2015 John Lynne Carey passed away peacefully at the VG after a short fight with cancer. Lynne was the son of John and Millicent (Millie) Carey; both of whom have predeceased him. He is survived by his son Shannon Troy, his sister Lea, and his nephew Evan Scott.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba Lynne moved with his son Shannon, to Halifax to join his parents and sister. He worked in Halifax for several years and retired from St. Mary’s University where he had worked as an ITT tech. He often referred to himself as a grumpy old man, but he was far from that. He was a good son, brother and above all, father and loyal to those he called friend.

Thank you to the doctors, nurses, Northwood Home Care, and the VON whose efforts helped his family keep him at home for a time and a special thank you to Frank and Kristie.

Cremation has taken place. There will be no services as requested by Lynne. If you wish to make a donation to The Cancer Society in his name, you are welcomed to do so. Sadly missed by his family and friends. Gone but always in our hearts.

Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, Bedford (902) 835-4212. On-line condolences may be sent to the family by e-mailing
