Lawrence (Larry) Hugh MacIsaac of Beaver Cove, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia formally of Sydney passed away peacefully at the Victoria General Hospital, Halifax on April 19, 2016.

Born in Fitchburg Massachusetts, USA he was the son of Laurence and Anna MacIsaac (nee Mackinnon). Predeceased by his wife of 52 years Helen MacIsaac (nee Zembal) and brother Daniel. Survived by his daughter Anna (Halifax), son Lawrence (Calgary), granddaughter Laura, son-in-law Craig Bradshaw, Elizabeth Sagasta, whom he considered his Spanish daughter and brother Jack.

After working for IBM for 35 years he retired to Beaver Cover with his wife Helen where they built their dream home on top of the hill.  Larry spent his time wood working, fly fishing, making wine and brewing some of the best homemade beer. Never needing a reason to sing we will dearly miss his repertoire of everything from saucy ditties to classic jazz.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 3:00pm in St. Columba Church, 2561 Columba Road, Iona, with a reception to follow in the parish hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to T. J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, Bedford NS 902-835-4212.
