BARTEAUX, Lawrence (Larry) Arthur 74
of Labrador City, N.L.
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, December 29, 2009

passed away peacefully in his home on Thursday, December 24th, 2009. Born in Middleton, Annapolis County, N.S. He was the son of the late Wylie and Violetta (Mullen) Barteaux. "Gramps", as he was affectionately known, went to Labrador in 1971 to work for the Iron Ore Company of Canada. He drove trucks most of his life working for TRA Foods, Berwick Bakery and finally retiring with 31 years of service with IOC. Although he lived a good portion of his life in Labrador, his love of Nova Scotia and the Valley was always present. He had a great knowledge of farm tractors and enjoyed collecting 1/16 scale models of his favorites, which were Internationals.

He loved his family and was very proud of his 9 grandchildren. It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to one of the most honest men that ever lived and a man who made you laugh with his witty comments. He will be sadly missed by his daughter, Pam (Bruce) Bullen, Halifax; son, Ken (Debbie), Middleton; and daughter, Terri-Lynn (Lee) Preziosi, Labrador City, N.L. He will be forever loved and remembered by his grandchildren, Heidi, Nathan, Gavin, Jenna, Tanaya, Eric, Jillian, Kathlene, and Mitchell. Lawrence is also survived by brothers, Ernest (Marian), Hammonds Plains; Stuart (Joan), Berwick; and Brian (Sharon), Port George. He was predeceased by his parents and infant brother Kenneth. Cremation has taken place and a Memorial service will be held at Carol United Church in Labrador City on Wednesday, December 30. Burial will take place in Nova Scotia in the summer of 2010. Donations may be made to the Baptist Church, Port George, N.S., Parkinson's Society of Canada or the Canadian Diabetes Association.
I see countless Christmas trees
around the world below.
With tiny lights, like heaven's stars
reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular,
please wipe away the tear.
For I am spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.
