Reigh Aubrey Kynock

Reigh Aubrey Kynock - of West Hall’s Harbour, Kings County. It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Reigh on August 25, 2016 at home at the age of 81. He was the son of the late Nellie (Spinney) Kynock and Aubrey Kynock. Born in Wolfville, he attended Church Street School #61. As a young man, he worked on many local farms in the Canning and Port Williams areas. At the age of 18, he joined the Canadian Army. He was a proud member of The Canadian Guards and the Royal Canadian Artillery. He was a gunner. After an accident with a land mine in Shilo, Manitoba and a right leg injury, he left the service in 1960. He was an industrial painter for the remainder of his working years. He retired due to ill health in 1983. Reigh loved the outdoors and spent many happy times hunting and fishing with his brother-in-law, Robie Woodworth and his best friend, Bill Smith. He was a member of the Antique Car Club and for many years enjoyed cruises and shows with his Oldsmobile and his Ford Lariat. He relied on his great friend and mechanic, Laurie Brown to keep his 'babies' going. He was a long standing member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Kings Branch No. 6, Kentville where he enjoyed telling 'tales' with friends. Until the last year, one of his favorite pastimes was playing 45's or devouring lobster with his brother and sister-in-law, Doug and Carol Hill. He would deliberately antagonize Carol with his Ace of Hearts and he and Doug would always seem to have the right cards to win the game. They also purchased many imaginary cars while watching Barrett Jackson auctions. Reigh loved his grandchildren and great grandchildren and watched them grow from babies to beautiful adults. He was so proud of every one of their accomplishments. Reigh is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Barbara (Hill) Kynock; his son, Kenneth (Marylou Taylor) Smith, Lawrencetown; his daughter, Faye (Larry Veinotte), Aylesford; his stepson, Christopher (Emilie) Mogensen, Halifax; his sister, Faith (Robie) Woodworth, Canning; his grandchildren, Amanda (Jeff) Schofield, Berwick; Krista Mogensen, Halifax; Stefan (Samantha) Mogensen, Berwick; Matthew Mogensen, Berwick; Alysha Mogensen and Nicole Mogensen, Elmsdale; Larissa Veinotte, Aylesford and Shawn Cox, Kingston; his great grandsons, Eli Schofield, Mason and Leland Cox; his nephews, whom he referred to as 'his boys', Bob Woodworth, Canning and Dana Woodworth, Alberta. He was predeceased by his sister, Donna Barnaby; his step-son and step-daughter John and Joanna Mogensen. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, September 2, 2016 with a combined Royal Canadian Legion and Canadian Guards tribute service to be held at 6:00 p.m. in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville. The funeral service, followed by a reception, will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, September 3, 2016 in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville. Family flowers only, by request.
