Obituary of Don Cornell

Age 84, of Louisdale passed away on January 29, 2019 at the QE11 Health Science Centre Infirmary Site in Halifax. Born in Belville, Ontario to the late Gerald and Eula (Brown) Cornell. He served in the Canadian Navy for 10 years and worked in the Pulp and Paper Industry in NS, NB and NFLD for 25 years. Don was also a businessman, community leader, past President of InRich and actively involved for 50 years with the Louisdale Lions Club, and was the original founding Charter President. He was a lifelong, passionate and devoted fan of the Boston Bruins in a community where Montreal and Toronto fans dominated…the heckling was constant and fierce! His love of hockey led to coaching and refereeing until he retired at age 69 as the oldest referee in NS. He is survived by his loving and supportive wife, Margaret (Samson) of 63 years; children – Wade (Gabrielle) Brooklyn, Glen (Debbie) Middle Sackville, Darren (Janet) West Kelowna, BC, Theresa (Anthony) Scarborough, Ontario, Shawn (Debbie) Middle Sackville; grandchildren, Melissa, Jessica, David, Amanda, Margaret, Jared and Aaron; 10 great-grandchildren; sister, Helen Covert and family of Ontario. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his granddaughter Laeha.
