Stephen Bernard (Bernie) MacKinnon

We regret to announce the sudden passing of Bernie MacKinnon, age 53, on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, at home.
Born in Sydney Mines on April 17, 1964, Bernie was the son of Margaret (MacKinnon) MacIntyre.
His favourite hobby was darts, and he played in many different leagues over the years. He also loved playing cards, but most of all he loved his cat, Toots.
Bernie is survived by his mother Margaret, and his partner Joanne Leamon. He also leaves behind his brothers Benny MacKinnon and Michael MacIntyre (Laura MacKay), sisters Sharon (John) Gibbons, and Mary Pearo (Jason Church), sisters-in-law Cathy Leach and Donna Barkhouse, and brother-in-law Paul Barkhouse.
He was predeceased by his step-father Clarence Pearo.
His family will receive visitors on Friday, March 23, 2018, from 10-11 a.m. in J. M. Jobes Funeral Home, Main St., Sydney Mines. A celebration of Bernie’s life will take place at 11 a.m. in the funeral home with Deacon Greg Murphy officiating.
