Laurie Glendon Lunn
It is with deep sadness that we announce Laurie’s passing at Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville at the age of 89 on July 22, 2020. Born in Kentville, he was the son of Edward and Elizabeth (Barkhouse) Lunn. Laurie worked for Willett Fruit Company, later Bolands, until they closed the Kentville office. It was a job he loved to get up every morning to go to. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He looked forward to every visit from every family member, old or young. Laurie is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Yvonne (Poirier); daughter, Carole Blackbird; son-in-law, Steve; their children, Shawn Blackbird (Michelle) and Andrew Blackbird (Melanie); daughter, Melanie Lunn; son-in-law, Craig Dunham and their 4-legged children; son, Glen Lunn and his son Ryan. He also leaves behind great-grandchildren, Liam Barteaux, Kaelyn Blackbird, Adelynn and Sam Blackbird and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Christina Vidito and her husband, Ralph; niece, Cindy-Lee and nephew, Ralph Vidito, Jr. In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral or visitation. The family would like to especially thank the nurses, Dr. McMillan and Dr. Clark in the ICU at Valley Regional Hospital for their caring and kindness to Laurie and the whole family and the nurses in Medical B for keeping him comfortable in his last days. We would also like to thank Dr. Nunn and Janice, his family doctor and nurse. Donations in Laurie’s memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
