MacDonald, Kevin Gerard, age 57, of Lower Barneys River passed away on March 30, 2021.

Born in Antigonish and raised in McArras Brook, he was a son of the late Frank and Marie MacDonald.

Kevin had the hands of a man who worked hard his entire life, first on as a kid on the family farm and then as heavy-duty mechanic.  Kevin used these skills to help out in his community, and they are skills he enjoyed teaching his children.  He also had a great sense of humour, and he enjoyed playing little jokes on the people he cared about.

He is survived by his wife, Lori (Hendsbee); daughters, Ginney (Caleb), Calgary and McArra, at home; son and best friend, Dylan, Cloverville; brothers, Angus (Jeanie) and Carl (Sheila), McArras Brook; Stuart (Elaine), Lismore; Lawrence (Shelley), Avondale; and Donnie (late Marlene), North Grant; sisters, Marion (John) MacEachern, McArras Brook; Ann (Jim) Clark, Ontario; Betty MacDonald, Antigonish; and Colleen (Harold) Teasdale, Fort McMurray; sisters-in-law, Cindy Perrin and Brenda Belliveau; and brothers-in-law, Russell, Steve, and Kevin Hendsbee.

Predeceased by mother-in-law, Kay Hendsbee.

Cremation has taken place.  Visitation will be held Monday from 6 to 9pm in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, Antigonish.  Social distancing protocols are in place, and masks are mandatory.  Funeral Mass will be held Tuesday in St. Mary’s Church, Lismore, at 11:00am, Reverend Colin MacKinnon presiding. The service will be recorded and available for viewing on the funeral home website later that afternoon.

Burial in the parish cemetery.
