Jody Morley John MacIsaac Sydney River

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear son, father, brother, nephew, cousin and friend on January 7th, 2019.

Jody was born August 11, 1968 in Charlottetown PEI to Donald “Donnie” and Jeanette (Nordine) MacIsaac. He is also survived by his loving sister Tara and her husband Glenn Colbert, as well as their boys Ryan, Jesse and Michael.

Jody’s proudest accomplishment in life was to watch his children grow into beautiful, young ladies. As a devoted and loving father, his world revolved around “his girlies” and he will be forever missed by his three precious daughters, Lauren Emily, Julia Michelle and Erin Jodi, along with their mother, Michelle (MacDonald) MacIsaac.

Jody was a family man and a proud “big” cousin to many. Jody was known for his lust for life, his tender advice and his outstanding entertaining skills. He very often became the nucleus of the family gatherings.

Jody loved music, particular Brian Adams, enjoyed all sports, and remaining physically active.

Jody attended Sydney Academy, UCCB, SMU and Carleton University where he completed his Bachelor of Commerce degree. Jody was blessed with many close-knit friendships, from his early years growing up in Whitney Pier, to those bonds he formed during high school and university.

Jody was known by many throughout the community as the owner and operator of Don Cherry’s Bar and Sports Grill, and most recently, Retro 67. The employees and co-workers of his businesses formed an extended family, building friendships that have lasted for many years.

Jody will be forever remembered for his kind heart.

Jody was predeceased by his paternal grandparents John and Emily (Digou) MacIsaac as well as his maternal grandparents Rudy and Margaret (Farrell) Nordine.

Visitation will begin on Monday, January 14 at T. W. Curry Parkview Chapel from 2-4 &7 -9 pm. Funeral mass will be celebrated on Tuesday at 10 am at Holy Redeemer Church with Fr. Paul Murphy officiating. Interment to follow in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.

Sending condolences to Jody's family. He was a good friend to the Schooner Curling Club. He was always generous with his sponsorship of our Don Cherry's Team Entry League. A sad loss to the community. Rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to all of you at this difficult time. Jody was one of my very best friends over the past 27 years since our great times together at SMU.
You meant the world to me. I will cherish our many great memories forever. You changed my world. Watching you raise your amazing daughters was an inspiration to me as a Father.

As Jody’s favourite, Bryan Adams said:
“That's the way of the world - That's what they tell me,
That's the way of the world - They can't sell me,
That's the way of the world - I can't explain it,
That's the way of the world - But we can change it”

I too am deeply saddened to hear of Jody’s death. Life doesn’t seem fair sometimes and this is one of those moments. Like so many others, I have lots of fond memories of him. I remember one time, many years ago, we were driving to Sydney from Halifax. Jody had a couple of university friends with him. It was very foggy and as we got near the exit in Port Hawkesbury that you take to get onto the highway to St. Peters, Jody said to them (with great confidence): “You know, if you aren’t used to this exit you could go right past it”....and, as he was saying the words, he had actually accidentally driven right past the exit. I tell this story every single time I am driving to Sydney with my family. My sincere condolences to all of Jody’s family. He will be missed greatly and remembered often.

I am heartbroken for Jody’s family. It’s has been many years since I have seen Jody, but over the last few days I have been thinking of him and the many great memories of our time as friends in both Ottawa and Halifax. Such good times with so many laughs. Bryan Adams songs always remind me of him. My deepest condolences to all those affected by his passing. I remember him as a wonderfully kind man with a heart of gold.
