Melvin Roy Grover

June 14, 1952 - September 9, 2020

|

Boularderie Island

Melvin “Mel”, age 68, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.

Mel was born and raised in Dingwall, CB to Hugh and Cassie (Brown) Grover.

After moving to Calgary, AB for 15 years, Mel returned to Cape Breton in 1995 and had since resided on Boularderie Island, as well as his hometown of Dingwall.

Mel always enjoyed new opportunities and after a successful array of careers while out west, found his true calling when he opened his own business, North Harbour Oyster Co., which he successfully operated for over 20 years, making many life-long friends along the way. Mel liked to keep things simple, whether finding joy in his gardens and fruit trees or preparing his meats and fish for winter. His true happiness was spending time with his granddaughters, the loves of his life.

Mel is survived by his wife, Angela; son, Chris; granddaughters, Courtney and Caitlin; daughter-in-law, Allyson (Joey); brothers, Leo (Mary), Ira (Cheryl) and Nick (Maureen); and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mel was predeceased by his parents; son, Shane; brothers, Bernie and Brian; and sister, Mary Frances.

As per Mel’s wishes, there will be no service. Cremation has taken place.

Words of comfort can be sent to the family at www.sydneymemorialchapel.ca or e-mail sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca
