Obituary of George Victor Jean

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of George Victor Jean, 80, of Addington Forks, on December 9, 2019, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, with his family by his side.

He was born in Rockdale, Cape Breton, on December 26, 1938, to the late Anthony and Victoria (Pottie) Jean.

George started his career as an auto body mechanic with Antigonish Motors and later Ron MacGillivray Chev Olds where, in total, he worked for nearly 50 years and made many lifelong friends. He was known for being a dedicated and hard worker who always took great pride in all that he did.

He enjoyed the outdoors whether it was in the garden, woodpile, taking care of his property or working in his shop. He loved music, sports, walking and being with his grandchildren. George had a great sense of humour, was kind and gentle, devoted to his family and was always there for them.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Vencentia “Vency” (MacGillivray); children Lance (Julie) Jean, Shelly (Dan) Lawson, and Marilyn (Terry) Long;  grandchildren Owen, Reanne, Michael, Madeline and Luke; sisters, Eileen Jeffrey, Leona Hachey; brother, Murdock (Nancy); Sisters-in-law Elizabeth, Mary Margaret (Phil), Florence, Marie; Brother-in-law Buddy (Laura).

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by sisters Leotine and Elizabeth; brothers Albert, Leonard, Armond, Alexander and Bernard; Sisters in law Charlotte, Catherine, Sr. Christine and Rosemary.

Visitation will be held Thursday, December 12 from 2-4 and 7-9pm in MacIsaac Funeral Home, 61 Pleasant Street.  Funeral Mass Friday, December 13, 11 am in St. Ninian Cathedral, Rev. John Barry presiding. Burial in the parish cemetery.
