A wonderful loving heart stopped beating on March 25, 2008 when we lost an amazing, crazy and kind man, Jeff Chandler. Jeff was born in Liverpool, Nova Scotia on 1962 and lived in Nova Scotia until moving to BC in 1988. He was a devoted commercial fisherman and loved to be at sea. He was the skipper of the Cape Morien. Jeff loved to laugh and make people laugh with him. He was a very large man who resembled a Sasquatch; but was a true teddy bear at heart to those he cared for and to children and animals (except fish, of course). Jeff always had a story or fish to share with anyone around. He loved playing with his children, having a job to do,and building in his workshop. His dogs, Eli (Bucket-head) and Freckles will miss him terribly. He leaves to mourn his adoring wife and best friend, Jackie, daughters, Olivia and Jessie (1st marriage), sons Briar and Glenn(1st marriage), parents Rita and Gary Veinot and Aubrey and Sheree Chandler, siblings Lisa (Gordie), Tabitha, Amanda and Jake all of Nova Scotia. He also leaves many saddened family members and too many friends to count in both BC and NS. He was predeceased by his son, Kyle, his brother, Craig, grandparents, Gerald and Beatrice Cross, and grandmother Felicia Chandler. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Sands Funeral Home. Viewing will be Monday 3-4pm. The funeral will take place on Tuesday, April 1st at 2pm. A Reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, a trust account has been set up for the care of Jeff’s small children... Also, any stories of Jeff and his life that you can share would be very happily received to be included in a book so his small children may know and remember him through these stories.
This blog contains a fair amount of swearing, painful and difficult subject matter. If you have objections of any kind, I believe it's your right to not agree. But, please, keep those objections to yourself and keep yourself busy withsomething else.
A few musings of a homeschooling, crafting, neurotic, organic loving and, most of all, kiddo adoring mommy...I've now become a widow. My best friend and husband died of a pulmonary embolism on March 25th, 2008. This blog has now become a place for me to mentally unload and try to figure out how to do this and who I am without him.
