BURDOCK, Launcelot Hall
Born in Belleoram, Newfoundland and having raised his family in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, he was known by everyone as a generous, kind, and welcoming person, who could put a smile on anyone's face. His kids and grandkids will miss his playful and mischievous nature and fondly remember many creative Christmas adventures. In his early days, Launce played the organ at his church and for many years provided musical entertainment on the piano at social functions. Launce served with the Lions Club of Newfoundland for many years. He was also an accomplished handy-man who passed his skills on to his children.
After over 20 years with Truefoam Ltd., Launce moved onto his next great adventure enjoying retirement with Barbara and their ever-growing family. This included over a decade of volunteering with the Tartan Team at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport greeting and assisting travelers. Heartfelt thanks to the staff at Shannex, Bissett Court, for the exceptional and loving care they provided Launce, whom they affectionately referred to as "Papa".
