Rev. William Robert "Bob" Hussey

May 28, 1934 - January 19, 2020

|

Marion Bridge

It is with deep sorrow we announce the passing of Rev. William Robert “Bob” Hussey, on Sunday, January 19, 2020, in High-Crest Nursing Home, Springhill, NS.

Born in Donkin, he was the son of the late William and Jenny (Davidson) Hussey.

For 55 years, Bob served the United Church of Canada, during which time he was a devoted minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He served the United Church in every province of Canada, except for Newfoundland. Bob spent a lifetime helping others. Following high school, Bob attended Mount Allison University, Pine Hill Divinity Hall and McGill University. Upon ordination into the United Church of Canada, he spent over 50 years ministering to the people in his charges. In addition, Bob’s passion was helping anyone in need. That help often included people living on the street, people in prison or anyone just having difficulty along life’s journey. Bob offered his help freely at any time and any place, believing in the value of human dignity for all.  His passion reflected the Scripture from Saint Matthew, Chapter 25, Verse 40.

Bob is survived by his wife, Sandra (Lewis); sons, John (Robin), Halifax, Andrew (Monique), Moncton and Danny (Kim), Cold Lake; daughter, Lisa (Mike) Attwell, Vancouver; sister, Mary (Jack Coffey) Jeffers, Marion Bridge; sister-in-law, Evelyna Hussey, Marion Bridge; grandchildren, Duncan, Isabel, Ryan, Kayla, Jasmine, Lexie and Brett.

Besides his parents, Bob was predeceased by his brother, Jack.

Visitation will take place at Bethel United Church, Marion Bridge on Thursday January 23 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service be held at Bethel United Church on Friday, January 24 at 2 p.m., with Rev. Dr. Thomas Whent officiating. Interment at a later date.

Family flowers only. Memorials may be made to Hospice Palliative Care of Cape Breton or Bethel United Church, Marion Bridge.

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