Landry, Wilfred Alexander, age 99, of Highland Crest Home, Antigonish, and formerly of Havre Boucher, passed away on November 3, 2021, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Havre Boucher, he was a son of the late Wallace and Elizabeth (Fougere) Landry.

Wilfred was a hardworking man.  He cut kindling until he was 97 years old.  He worked in The States for a time and worked on the freight boats, but for the most part, he was a farmer.  He was known for his vegetable garden and sold vegetables door-to-door in the Auld’s Cove/Port Hawkesbury area for 62 years. A generous man, he loved to have fun (including a good drink) and animals (especially his horses). Wilfred was also very dedicated to his church, never missing Mass, and he had an amazing ability to find the good in everyone he met.

He is survived by his son, Robert "Bob", New Glasgow; and daughter, Noreen (late Garnet Giesbrecht), Toronto; and girlfriend, Ann Greenhorn.  He was the oldest, and last surviving, member of his family.

Predeceased by his wife, Kathleen (Pelrine); and siblings, Thelma Crispo (Eldred); Joseph "Sonny"; William "Billy", and Jerome (Thelma).

Visitation will be held Friday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm in St. Paul’s Centre, Havre Boucher. Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday at 11:00am in St. Paul’s Church, Reverend Allan MacPhie presiding.  Burial in the parish cemetery.

Proof of vaccination and valid photo ID are required for both visitation and funeral, and masks are mandatory.

IN Memoriam, donations to St. Paul’s Cemetery appreciated.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of C.L. Curry Funeral Home, Antigonish.  Online condolences:  www.clcurry.com
