Victor Stuart Greencorn, 71 of Little Dover passed away peacefully in Canso Seaside Manor on July 25, 2020. He was born and raised in Half Island Cove and was the son of the late Jean Greencorn.
Victor moved to Little Dover with his wife Sandra and their two sons in the late 70’s. He was a hard worker all his life having various jobs, including working in his younger years on the Lake Boats and then as a fish cutter in the Canso Fish Plant. Victor was also a member of St. Agnes Parish, Little Dover.
Victor raised his two sons teaching them the value of an education, respect and kindness to others, but above all.. Love. Through all of Victor and Sandra’s life struggles, their love for each other and their family carried them through the toughest of times. Having no sight for many years, Victor always maintained his strong will and he never faltered in finding the positive in every situation; his determination and strength, taught us to take nothing for granted in this life! Victor was dad or granddad for many of his nieces and nephews, and he loved them all dearly.
Victor will be lovingly remembered by his two sons Carson (Tara), Kentville; and Shawn (Kim) Pokiok, NB; grandchildren Laura, Dylan, Bryanna and Brayden; sister Vivian (Lawrence) Williams, Kentville; nieces Lisa, Krista, Lacey, Annette (Glen), and Victoria; nephews Paul (Marg), Skylar, Brandon, Chayne, Roy (Heather), Jonah and Luke; godchild Steven Myatt; sisters-in-law Beatrice Greencorn and Bella (Earl) Delorey; brothers-in-law Earl (Julie), Ralph (Mary), Kevin (Pam), Mel (Darlene), Harry Myatt and all their children.
