Conrod, Peter Silas – Age 77, Head Chezzetcook. It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our devoted and loving father, grandfather and brother, on May 13, 2016, in Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital, following a brief and courageous battle with cancer. Born in Head Chezzetcook, he was a son of the late Nelson and Winnie (Sparks) Conrod. Peter was a crane operator in his early years, and at the age of 44, started his own construction company known as Peter S. Conrod Construction Limited. He proudly built this company for his family for over 30 years, and recently passed on his legacy. He and his wife Ruby travelled to Florida every winter for over 20 years. Peter loved the outdoors, camping, gardening, and could be seen proudly sitting on his tractor mowing the field.
Surviving are his children, Rickey (Monique), Darren (Ada), Sandra (Paul) Beaver, Nelson (Peggy); grandchildren, Janette, Nicholas, Rachel, John, Evan, Denise, and Robin; sister, Norma Higginbotham. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Ruby; brother, Maxie; brother-in-law, Harry Higginbotham; niece, Gail; nephew, Nelson.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit. Funeral service will be Wednesday at 2 p.m., in St. Barnabas Anglican Church, Head Chezzetcook, Rev. Kyle Wagner officiating. Burial will follow in the parish cemetery. A reception will be held in Chezzetcook District Lions Club. Memorial donations may be made to St. Barnabas Anglican Church or Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital.
A special thanks to the devoted nursing staff for the love and compassion shown to our father during his stay in Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital. The number of friends who visited Dad in the hospital overwhelmed him, and gave him strength and encouragement each day. You are much loved and appreciated.
