WOODFORD, Michael Joseph (Mickey)
Mickey had a passion for his community of Baddeck, from minor hockey to spear-heading the building of the Victoria Highland Civic Center, to chairing the fundraising campaign for the Victoria County Memorial Hospital. As well, he shared his passion for sailing by providing leadership and support to Bras d'Or Yacht Club and the community wharf initiative. In later years, Mickey was a keen golfer and curler. Aside from his own six kids, Mickey had so many pint-sized heroes and youth who were the touchstones of his decisions at work, as a coach, as a mentor, as a citizen and most importantly, as a father. His ever-present sense of humor endeared him to many. After his diagnosis of dementia, humour became his amour; deflecting the unsuspecting from recognizing the gradual erosion of his intellectual engagement, his ability to manage the mundane tasks of life to finally not being able to manage the basic activities of daily living. In his last years, he felt overwhelmed with gratitude for the gifts life has given him and for the people who have touched him.
Mickey is survived by wife of 60 years, Pat (McManus); his children, Eileen, Baddeck, Tim, Liverpool, Paddy (Dina), Riverview, NB; Kathy Anne, Antigonish; Peter, Halifax and Beth (Craig) Collins, Liverpool and eight grandchildren, Curtis, Caleb, Ben, Tessa, Brittany, Nicholas, Gillian and Sarah, are grateful to him and the life he lived. His survived by his brother, John (Elsie) in Holyrood, NF; brothers-in-law, John Phalen, Sydney, Bruce Hyland, Pointe Claire, Quebec and sisters-in-law, Beverly Woodford, Massachusetts and Betty McCarty, Falmouth Mass and many nieces and nephews. Mickey was predeceased by his parents and siblings, Betty (Phalen), Kay, Bill, Tom and Richard. The family expresses special thanks to the medical community at Victoria County Memorial Hospital, Amanda Morrison of Above and Beyond Continuing Care and Victoria County Home Support.
Visitation will occur Thursday, March 23 from 2 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Baddeck Community Centre. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael's Parish on Friday, March 24, 2017 at 11 a.m. with Fr. Paul Abbas officiating followed by a reception at the Community Centre. In memory of Mickey, please consider donating to a Baddeck Academy scholarship established in his name, to the Victoria Highlands Civic Centre, Victoria County Memorial Hospital Foundation or by simply sharing acts of kindness, as this was the governing tenant of his life. Funeral under the care and direction of MacAskill Funeral Home.
