MacLEOD, James Keith Sydney Mines It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our loving husband, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend, Keith MacLeod, 70, on Sunday, July 7, 2019, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Born in North Sydney on May 27, 1949, he was the son of the late George (Mick) and Alberta (Maddocks) MacLeod. Keith was a faithful member of St. John’s Anglican Church in North Sydney. He was very involved with the church and was an active member of the choir. Keith worked for Devco for 30 years, and later at Hawkesbury Paper. He loved golf and spent many hours on the course with Eric, Mike and Gord. On his daily walks, Keith always had treats for Leia, Ingo, Gemma, Luca, and poor Andy. Keith is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Debbie (Young) MacLeod, and his siblings, Kenny, Ruth Ann and Liam (Nicole). Also left to mourn are his sisters-in-law, Callista (Jim), Donna and Sue Young; brothers-in-law, Jon and Terry (Colleen). He will be dearly missed by several nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Sharon (Lambert); brother, Michael; sister-in-law, Patsy MacLeod; mother-in-law, Trudy Young; father-in-law, Donald Young, and brother-in-law, Raymond Young. His family would like to thank the staff of 4a and 4B at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, and special nurse Rosie. Thank you also to Dr. MacLaughlin and Dr. Abboud.
