Owen D’Auvergne MacDonald

Marion Bridge

Owen "Dee" MacDonald 83 of Marion Bridge passed away Friday July 26, 2019, at the McGillivray Guest Home, Sydney, with his family by his side.

Born in Marion Bridge, he was the son of the late Owen and Emily (Gibbons) MacDonald.

Truck driving was Dee’s passion.  He began driving a pulp truck while in high school, and later delivered gas and oil throughout Ontario and Cape Breton, making many friends along the way. Later in life he and Marlene opened Tigger’s Treasures in Marion Bridge where his friendly manner and quick smile welcomed all who came through the doors. He enjoyed music and dancing and loved to reminisce about days gone by.  Dee was a member of the Marion Bridge Vol. Fire Department for 39 years and a tireless community volunteer. He will always be remembered for his water divining abilities – on a moment’s notice he would drive across the Island to "find a well" for someone.  Dee had a wonderful sense of humour and always a kind word for everyone he met. He was extremely proud of his grandchildren and great grandchildren, following them to hockey rinks, baseball fields, and basketball courts.  We will all miss him terribly.

Dee is survived by his wife, Marlene (MacPherson), daughters Debi (Kent) Walker, Big Ridge and Judi (Blair) MacPherson, Marion Bridge, brothers Harvey (Gail), Harvey Station, NB, Gilbert, Marion Bridge, Keith (Marlene), Halifax, brother-in-law John MacKinnon, Salmon River; grandchildren Kent (Aeron), Robb (Robyn), Ryan (Anne), Kori (Jenn), Deanna, Liam (Danielle), great grandchildren Ethan, Haylea, Jude, Kelly, Owen, Blair, Blayke, Brody, Kayden, Madeline, Grayson and Sadie.  He also leaves behind several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his son Robert "Tigger", sisters Yetti Doncaster and Vivian MacKinnon, brother-in-law Wayne (Terri-Anne) MacPherson.

Visitation will take place Monday July 29, 2019 from 6 – 9 pm in Bethel United Church, Marion Bridge. Funeral service will be held Tuesday at 11 am in Bethel United Church with Mr. Wayne Dickie officiating. Interment in Riverview Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to the Marion Bridge Volunteer Fire Department or Bethel United Church.
