ANTHONY – Laurie Reginald Anthony, it is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Laurie Reginald Anthony on April 23, 2024, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre in Truro, Nova Scotia. Born on March 1, 1941, in Toronto, Ontario, Laurie is the son of the late Reginald and Evelyn (Hennigar) Anthony. He married Alice Bartlett, and they had five children Michael, Pam, Lynn, Carla and Lesley. Laurie, known by many as Dad or Grampie, lived a life full of love surrounded by friends and family. Laurie retired from Lindsay Construction after more than 40 years of working in the construction industry. If you have ever been on a trip with Laurie, you know he loved to point out the many construction projects he proudly worked on throughout the province. Outside of work, Laurie loved to go fishing, feed the deer, and play cards. He was known to always lend a helping hand and bring joy to those around him. In his later years, you could find Laurie cheering for his favourite teams - the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays, enjoying daily car rides through the community and racing his wife in their daily word searches. He loved visits with his friends and family members, often sharing many great stories of the shenanigans he would get up to in the past! Laurie is survived by his wife Alice, son Michael Anthony (Rose), daughter Pam Salter (Kevin), daughter Lynn Conrad (Michael), daughter Carla Sanford (Bradley), daughter Lesley Hatt (Jeff), grandchildren Jason Lavoie(Keri), Tricia Conrad, Nathan Sanford (Elizabeth), Angie Sanford, Cody Conrad (Alex), Michael Conrad, Brandon Salter, Lori Anthony, and Great Grandchildren Paris Conrad, Brooklyn Lavoie, Bryson Lavoie, Payton Conrad, Owen Conrad, Brenna Sanford, Maddy Sandford, Maisy Conrad, Lincoln Conrad, Dex Sanford, Dallas Conrad, and Kash Cossaboom and sister Dianne MacDonald (Ted). Besides his parents, Laurie is predeceased by his sisters Dorothy and Lois. Burial will take place at Kennetcook Cemetery, under the direction of Allen J W Funeral home, Kennetcook, NS.
