Meagher, Harold Laurie “Tiny” – Age 73, of Truro. It is with heartfelt sadness that we say goodbye to our gentle giant, Tiny, who passed away April 19, 2015. Born May 20, 1941, in Windsor Junction, he was the only son of Harold “Bub” and Hilda (Kehoe) Meagher. Tiny was a people’s person who could find someone he knew wherever he went. His first passion and joy was his family. An avid vehicle enthusiast, you never knew what he might be driving with his favorite being a Lincoln Town Car. Tiny was a wonderful dancer and you would have to stand in line to have a dance with him. A veteran of the Congo Crisis in the early 60s, he stayed in touch with his fellow Signal Corps comrades and attended many of their reunions.
Tiny is survived by his wife, Loretta (Price), whose love and care sustained him throughout his courageous battle with bone cancer. Also survived by his daughter, Suzanne Totten (Kevin), Truro; sons, Michael (Donna), Truro; Wayne (Shelley), Fort Ellis; Darryl (Teresa), Debert; Bob Rundle (Sharon), Middle Sackville; John Rundle, New Glasgow; nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; sisters, Susan Doucette (Doug), Halifax; Mary McFarland (Owen), Windsor Junction; Jane Scott (David), Enfield; Peggy Wilshurst, Dartmouth; brothers, Leo, Windsor Junction; Ivan (Irene), Dartmouth; stepmother, Glenda (Hamilton) Meagher. Besides his parents, Tiny was predeceased by his sisters, Jeanne Caudle (Eddie) (Truro) and Judy Vance (Steven) (North River).
There will not be a service by Tiny’s request and no flowers please. Donations may be made in Tiny’s name to the Colchester branch of Palliative Care or any charity of your choice.
Sincere thanks to Palliative Care and the VON whose thoughtfulness and respect for Tiny was greatly appreciated and to all those who spent time, sent cards and showed support. Special thanks to Janice, Maynard, Tracy, Anthony and Connor.
A celebration of Tiny’s life will be held at a later date.
