Ernest "Nick" Bishop Obituary

Ernest Robert “Nick” Bishop

It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of our dear Dad and Grandad Ernest Robert Bishop “Nick” at the age of 69 on February 14, 2024, at Harbourview Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, on May13, 1954, he was the son of the late Albert and Lillian (Pardy) Bishop.

Nick loved spending time with his family. His favorite thing to do was to go on adventures with his son-in-law, Tim Smith, whom he shared a very special bond with. He loved going for ice cream with his “baby girl,” his beautiful great-granddaughter Kendell. Nick adored all his grandchildren. Jacob, Joey, Jason, George, Ariel, Mitchell, Hayley, Jaden, and Chandler. Nick was so proud of his son Matthew for graduating from CBU, and he was always so proud of his daughters Jessica and Renee.

Nick spent the last four years residing at Steven’s Rest Home in North Sydney, where he met many dear friends, including his best friend, Lenny. He called these some of the best years of his life. Nick could always be found watching Hockey and eating lay’s Chips on Saturday night. He was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs Fan. Nick spent the last 6 months of his life residing at Harbourview Hospital, Sydney Mines, where he also met many new friends he loved.

Over the years, Nick had many jobs. Working at Blue Star Traders, Nickerson Fish Processing, along with construction, fishing, and painting. Everyone who knew Nick would describe him as kind, compassionate, and willing to help.

Left to mourn are his loving children, Renee (Tim Smith), Jessica Bishop (George Stubbert), and Matthew Bishop. His former wife Valerie Bishop, Brothers Kenny, Wayne, Blair. Sister Marilyn, grandchildren, one great-grandchild, many nieces, nephews and cousins. Special uncle Ken Jardine Sr. “Unks” along with special friends Cavell, Ann, Thelma, Kim and Emily.

Besides his parents, Nick was predeceased by brothers Joey, Donald, and Albert. Son Jason, whom he never got over losing, and mother of his children Beverly Reilly.
