Michael Patrick Whiston


Michael Patrick Whiston

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Michael Patrick Whiston, 56, of Coldbrook, NS, on February 20, 2024 in Soldiers Memorial Hospital. Born in Kentville, Michael was a son of the late Walter and Ruby (Hughes) Whiston.

Michael was a beloved husband, father and brother. He worked for over 20 years as a Red Seal certified heavy equipment mechanic, most recently working for the school board at the bus garage.

Michael was an avid sports fan, he especially enjoyed watching the Blue Jays and the Pittsburg Penguins; though his favorite team to support would be whichever team Jake was playing for.

He liked to relax with a beverage and listen to the Saturday night classics. Family was the most important thing to Michael; he would do anything for his family.

Michael is survived by his wife, Pam (Strickland); children, Ian Fowlie, Jake and Sam; brothers, Kevin (Carol) and Gary; sister, Joan (Wayne) Ferris as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Michael was predeceased by brothers, Darrell and Randy; sisters, Margaret Hughes and Patricia, as well as sisters, Francis and Heather who passed in infancy.

Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation. A private family graveside service will take place. Donations in memory of Michael may be made to a charity of your choice. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville.
