It is with deepest sadness and regret that the family announces the death of
John Andrew Thomas Rundle, 53, of Moose River, formerly of Westville at the
VG Site, QE II, Halifax on May 11, 2000 after a courageous battle with leukemia.
John was born in New Glasgow, the son of Thomas and the late Anna (Palmer) Rundle.
He was a boilermaker by trade and a member of Local 73 International Brotherhood
of Boilermakers. For the past 12 years he was employed by ABB Power as construction
supervisor for the Atlantic provinces. He took great pride in his work and got
tremendous satisfaction on bringing in a "shut down" on time. He will be remembered
as an instructor for many rigging courses for the Dept. of Labour and local
industries. For the past several summers John`s work took him to Nfld., where
he was able to indulge in his passion for the outdoors, especially fishing and
hunting. He shared this passion with his wife of 33 years, Ida and his faithful
companion, his black Lab, Riley. John was an avid sports fan and especially
enjoyed hockey and baseball. He played on the Westville Gentleman`s & Old-timer`s
Hockey Leagues and the Westville Miners Baseball Team. Throughout his life,
he never gave up on the Toronto Maple Leafs, always optimistic that next season
would be the winning one. Surviving besides his father, are his wife, Ida (Wells);
children: Trudy and Richard Duggan, Westville, Heather and Aaron Millen, Westville,
Tracey Rundle and Leonard Marendiuk, Regina, Sask.; sister Sharon and Fred Charlton,
Trenton; father-in-law Freeman and Marlene Wells, Trenton; several nieces and
nephews. He was an adoring "grampy" to grandchildren: Shona Duggan, Jeanetta
Millen and Johnathon Marendiuk. He was predeceased by a sister, Karen Ann, in
infancy. At John`s request, cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation
or service. A family gathering will take place at a later date in celebration
of John`s life. Anyone wishing to give a gift in John`s memory, please, consider
becoming a blood or organ donor. During his illness, he learned that these really
are the gifts of life. Arrangements are entrusted to P. & K. MacDonald Funeral
Home, New Glasgow.
