Robert Wesley Burchell
We regret to announce the peaceful passing of Wes Burchell, age 83, of Sydney Mines, on Saturday, March 13th, 2021, surrounded by loved ones.
Born in Sydney Mines on Oct 21, 1937, Wes was the son of the late Harris and Ruth (Gillis) Burchell.
Wes was a devoted employee of Devco before retiring to spend time with his loving wife Sheila. They enjoyed travelling and spending most of their time with friends and family. Wes would spend his days taking care of his vehicles and offering his help to his neighbours.
Wes will be sadly missed by his son Paul (Alice) of Beaver Bank; grandchildren Jennifer (Lee) and Robert (Nicole); great grandchildren Hayden and Gavin; brothers David (Patty), Wayne (Alice) and Lorn (Ethel) as well as his nieces, nephews and all of his extended family.
Besides his parents, Wes was predeceased by his wife Sheila, and sister Gwen.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions an outdoor service will be held in Sydney Mines in the spring.
Wes' family would like to give a heartfelt thank you to the caring staff at Northwood Bedford.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Society of Nova Scotia. Words of comfort may be forwarded to his family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com
