|It is with saddened hearts that we announce, MacEachern, Phillip A., age 69, of Ohio, Antigonish County passed away in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital on November 23, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Arisaig, Antigonish County, he was the son of the late Daniel Joseph and Alice (Delaney) MacEachern.
Phillip met and married his loving wife, Bernadette with whom he would have celebrated their 50th wedding in a few months. Phillip’s greatest joy in life was his family. Together with Bernadette, he had four children, Cindy MacEachern (Dominic Benoit), Ohio, their son Aidan, Joey (Antonietta) MacEachern Edmonton, their three boys, Michael, Devin, and Kyle; Sandi (Kevin) Bowie Afton, their three children, Heidi, Jacob and Gracie; Dawn (Brent) Boyle, Afton, their 4 children, Logan, Hannah, Brody, and Blake. Then there’s the light of his life, great grand-daughter, Olivia Kaye.
He was a man of great faith and love. He loved holidays, especially Christmas and delighted in having his family and friends gathered for a great meal, good music and inevitably some dancing. There was nothing nicer than to see him joyfully lead mom around the dance floor. He was man of great integrity and strength. He took great pride in his property and enjoyed being outdoors, making hard work look easy. He was always there for his friends and family to lend a helping hand no matter what. We will be lost without you.

A carpenter by trade, his skill and craftsmanship brought him to many projects, big and small, all across the province.
