William “Billy” Thomas Boozan


With broken hearts we announce the passing of William “Billy” Boozan, age 69, who died peacefully at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney always surrounded by his loving wife, family and many friends.

Born in Glace Bay, on December 24,1947, he was the son of the late Jim and Jenny (McEwan) Boozan.

He was employed with DEVCO for many years, in his later years he was employed with the Bayplex as the maintenance man- his favorite job.

Billy spent many countless hours fishing and hunting, spending time in his garden; especially hanging out in “Billy’s Barn” playing darts and tarbish, watching hockey games and drinking many cheers with his “Boys”.

This amazing man leaves behind, his wife Ann, who never left his side and loved him unconditionally no matter what; the oldest, his son, Shaun (Norma), his daughters, Dawn (Troy), Jolene (Braeden); his pride and joys, his grandchildren, Mike, Kristen, Cameron, Brandon and Jaelin, which he was always so proud of. Also surviving are his brother, Andy (Yvonne), many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, as well many family and friends.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his baby boy, his ultimate pride, Jamie, sisters, Edie, Alma, Mary, Jean, Margie and Audrey (who was taken the same day) and brother Aubrey “Mick”.

Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Thursday, July, 27, 2017 from 1-2 pm with a celebration of life to follow at 2 pm with Father Jake Andrea, all taking place at the T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialist, 370 Reserve St., Glace Bay, NS 902-849-4199. Reception to follow.

Family flowers only, donations may be made to the Children’s Wish Foundation.

With dignity, respect, pride and unconditional love and not one complaint you went out “Billy Boozan” style.

You fought and you won, you are our super hero.

“Rest in Peace Poppie.”
