Frank MacLellan

Meat Cove


It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of Frank MacLellan, age 60, on Wednesday, June 30th, 2021, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital; surrounded by his loving family. Born on Oct 31,1960, he was the son of the late Francis MacLellan and Catherine (Fraser) MacLellan. He was predeceased by his father Francis; his brother Andy and parents in law Alex and Katie Mackinnon.

Frank and Janet met in their teenage years; Janet was the “love of his life”. Together they built a family of four sons; his “boys” were everything to him. He was so proud of each of them. He was their role model and mentor who guided them to become the fine men which they are today.

Next to Janet and his boys; Frank loved his grandchildren. Whether it was going on road trips with Gavyn for motocross racing, watching him and his sister Janelle at their hockey games; taking Thomas on bike rides or being so proud to hold his newest grandson Odin.

Franks next love was the sea; from his young years of fishing with his father to just up till last week fishing with his sons he enjoyed fishing and loved being on the water. He will be missed by his deckhand of 24 years, his brother-in-law Albert and greatly missed at the wharf each day.

Frank is survived by his loving wife Janet, his four sons; Ralph (Jonilynn) grandchildren, Gavyn and Janelle, Dingwall. Jason (April) Grandson Odin, NFLD. Jamus (NIkki) grandsons Thomas, Camden and Emma of Aspy Bay, and Jordan (Breigh) Meat Cove.

Frank will also be missed by his mother Catherine of Meat Cove, brother Lawrence (Jen) Sydney and sisters Danita (Ontario) Bernadette (Earl) Aspy Bay, and Carrie (Stephen) Meat Cove.

As per request there will be no visitation. A graveside service for friends and family will take place on Monday, July 5, 2021, at 3 pm in St. Margaret’s of Scotland cemetery in St Margaret’s Village, with Fr. Alphonsus Iwuji officiating.

A special thank you goes out to the nursing staff of the ICU and particularly to the surgical team of Dr. Kagedan and Dr. Poushay who walked with us each and every step of the way during a very difficult time of need.
