Myette, Jeffrey Ernest
– Age 71 of Antigonish, passed away at St.
Martha’s Regional Hospital on Monday, February
Born in Antigonish, he was the son of the late Ernest and
Virginia (Clyde) Myette.
Jeffrey was an electrician with IBEW local 625, proud to have
worked in locations all over North America. Even with such a busy
working life, there was time for Sunday drives with his family, where
a vanilla ice cream was usually in hand and country music on the
radio. However, it was not uncommon to hear the likes of
anyone from "The King" to the Rolling Stones. A
jack of all trades, he made many repairs to ensure his
daughters’ vehicles were in peak condition or helping family
members with plumbing or carpentry projects. Apart from
that, there is a good chance he could have been found on his John
Deere meticulously mowing his many acres.
He is survived by his spouse Darlene (Melanson); daughters
Jakalee and Jyleah (Connor), both of Antigonish; sisters Virginia
(Gordon) Grieve, Oshawa Ont., Maureen (John) DeCoste, Truro, and
Lorraine Boucher; sister-in-law Debbie Myette; mother-in-law Peggy
MacPherson; goddaughter Tanya DeCoste; and many special nieces and
Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his brother Kevin;
twin sister Jennifer in infancy; brother-in-law, Derrick Melanson, and
special aunt Mabel Anker.
