Obituary of Bernard "Tack" McDonald Jr.
McDonald, Bernard Allison “Tack”
Age 71, of Hantsport, passed away suddenly at home on Monday, October 8, 2018. Born October 27, 1946 in Windsor he was a son of the late Bernard Allison and Jennie (Rushton) McDonald.
Tack was an avid golfer and belonged to Ken-Wo Golf & Country Club, New Minas. He also enjoyed baseball and had his own team: “Tack’s Terrors”. His profession was as a Stainless Steel High Pressure Welder; at one time, one of the few in Nova Scotia. Tack had influenced a lot of young men into going on to work in this field. He was known as a guy that would always be ready to lend a helping hand or give some advice. He also enjoyed fishing off the wharf in Hantsport and when the tide was coming in that’s where you would find him and his brother. He will be very sadly missed by his animal companions Isabella, Goldie and Diva, who helped keep him entertained.
Tack is survived by his wife of 32 years, the former Susan Cunningham; daughter, Jamie; son, Jason; brother, Lawrence “Spike” (Marianne), Hantsport; sisters, Jan (Pony), Hantsport; Karen (Patrick), Piggott Lake; Sandra (Andy), Kauai. Besides his parents, Tack was predeceased by sister, Catherine.
