Obituary of John Cipak

John Stephen JR Cipak Reserve Mines It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of John Stephen Jr. Cipak, age 58, on March 15, 2020 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney. He was the son of the late John Sr. and Mary (Johnston) Cipak. John worked as a security guard for several years with Walker's Security. When he wasn’t spending time with his family or friends you could always see him walking with his best friend, his dog Diesel. John also had a strong passion for wood working. He was a big man with a heart of gold, and a smile that would light up a room. John is survived by his wife of 27 years Darlene Gabriel; four sons, Gregory (Lindsay) MacMullin, Stephen (Alicia) Cipak, Jorden (Candace) Cipak, and Devin Cipak; one daughter Ashley (Anthony) O’ Handley; two brothers, Robert (Colleen) Bungay and Wilfred Clements; one sister, Pamela (Vince) Tutty; six grandchildre Hunter, Ryder, Bailey, Olivia, Haylee and another on the way; as well as several nieces and nephews. A special thank you to the staff of the IMCU and the ICU unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Diabetic Association or the The Heart and Stroke Foundation. Cremation has taken place under the direction of T.J. Tracey and Burial Specialists, 370 Reserve St., Glace Bay, (902-849-4199) and a service will be held at a later date. Expressions of Sympathy may be made to the family by visiting “Take the best parts of me locked away without the keys and know that I’m forever by your side. When the lights go down know that I am never far away. When the sun burns out I’ll be waiting on the brighter side of grey.”
