It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that we share the sudden and untimely death of our dear sweet son, Sherman Josh Murray Mackinnon, 24, who passed away in Neil’s Harbour on Saturday, April 3rd, 2021. He was born on the North Shore March 2nd 1997.
Josh was a strong, caring and loving father, brother and uncle. Growing up Josh was a part of the Cabot High Wrestling Team. He was an avid wrestler who won many championships. Josh enjoyed halibut fishing with his father and two brothers. He also loved hunting deer and moose in the fall. His favorite hunting spot was at Jimmy the Backlands, a place where he spent many hours in his tree-stand. Josh was a forklift driver while employed at the Victoria Co-op Fisheries located in Bay St. Lawrence, a place where he became great friends with all his fellow coworkers. Josh was a light in all of our lives. He always had a smile on his face and would help anyone that he could.
Josh had one son Brody, who was his pride and joy. Everyone would call him a “Mini Josh”. Josh is survived by his loving parents, Sherman Mackinnon & Deanna Bonnar of
Bay St. Lawrence. Josh also leaves behind his cherished girlfriend Brianna Mackinnon & little boy Brody Josh Molar Mackinnon. He is also survived by his two big brothers, Jake (Cori), and Jeremy (Tanya), brothers-in-law Brett, Liam and Zack, and mother-in-law Samantha Mackinnon (Norm Boutilier), his maternal grandparents Peter William Bonnar and Lorraine Hines of Bay St. Lawrence, also his paternal grandparents William and Mary Mackinnon of St. Margaret’s Village. Josh has four uncles, three aunts, and lots of cousins, some of which are his closest friends. Josh also had two special nieces, Stephanie & Bella, and one special nephew, Breton. Josh will also be missed by his two special little cousins, Hankie and Remington.
He was predeceased by his uncle Duncan Thomas Mackinnon (Molar).

You’ll never be forgotten, that simply cannot be
As long as I am living, I’ll carry you with me
Safely tucked within my heart your light will always shine
A glowing ember never stilled throughout the end of time.
No matter what the future brings or what may lie ahead,
I know that you will walk with me along the path I tread.
So rest easy my Angel, be at peace
and let your soul fly free.
One day I’ll join you in glorious flight for all eternity.
