Ralph Comeau

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ralph Joseph Comeau, age 80, of Halifax, on January 6th, 2019 at home. Born August 9, 1938 in Meteghan Centre, he was the son of the late Louis and Marie (Theriault) Comeau. He was a sheet metal worker (Local 409) and worked for many years for Steen Mechanical Contractors. He was also a co-owner of Grand View Motel and Cottages in Black Point from 1986 to 1993, along with his wife. For a short time he worked for GC Snair and Son of Black Point.

He loved old classic television programs and western movies, especially Clint Eastwood and John Wayne. He enjoyed his time with his grandchildren, taking them for tractor rides and boat trips on St. Margaret’s Bay. In his later years, he developed a very quiet and dry wit.

He is survived by his loving and deeply caring wife of 59 years, Marjorie (Amiro) Comeau; his son Joey (Lynda) Comeau, Beaverbank; his daughters Darlene (Todd) Berhow, Kentucky; Shelley (Paul Herron) Comeau, Dartmouth; Carolyn (Jack) Zwicker, Straffordville, Ontario; and Tanya (Darryl) Dutton, Halifax. He had nine grandchildren: Emily and David Comeau; Jordan, Elizabeth and Renee Berhow; Samantha Comeau and William Daley; Holly and Stephanie Zwicker.

He is survived by his sisters Loretta (Harley) Fletcher and Doris Gaudet, and his brother Raymond (Patricia) Comeau. He is predeceased by his brother Felix Comeau.
