Green, William Albert, age 80, of St. Andrews, Antigonish County and most recently of Greenwald Manor, Antigonish, passed away peacefully on September 6, 2021, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Antigonish, he was a son of the late Albert and Catherine (Huntley) Green.

Dad met the love of his life in 1966, and together they raised 6 children.

Dad was a hard worker and worked his entire life in the forestry industry, and he was well known for his pulp cutting capabilities.  If you needed a good edge on your saw, he was the man to do it.

Dad had a passion for work horses. He loved his days of horse pulling and was a member of the Eastern Nova Scotia Draft Horse Association.  Dad looked forward to Christmas tree season every year, where he worked with his long-time friend, John, at Maritime Balsams for 35 years.  If you need him in the month of November, you could find him in the sugar shack.

He is survived by his children, Darryl (Brenda), Dagger Woods; Jeanine (Dave), Tignish, PEI; Brian (Melinda), Merigomish; Jason (Kimberly), Pomquet; Mark (Lyndsey), Alberta; and Will (Kendra), St. Andrews; grandchildren, Aaron, McKayla, Gavin, Dana, Andrew, Emma, Ryley, Blake, Zoe, Zack, Hunter, Bella, Max, and Jack; siblings, Melinda England, John Seaward, Charles, Michael, Francis, Allan, Donald, and Peter.

Predeceased by his loving wife, Amy; sisters, Theresa Guthro, Sarah Mizner, Kathleen Mattie; brothers, George and Vincent, and twins Thomas and Louise, in infancy.

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to the staff of VON, Home Care, St. Martha’s, and Dr. Gallivan for the wonderful care Dad received.

Visitation will be held Wednesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish.  Social distancing protocols are in place, and masks are mandatory.  Funeral Mass will be held Thursday in St. Andrew’s Church, St. Andrews, at 11:00am with Reverend Andrew Gillies presiding.  The funeral will be streamed live on the funeral home website.

Burial in the parish cemetery.
