Gary Alan Blakeney – 69, Valley, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 29, 2022, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Truro, he was a son of the late George and Dorothy (Bilby) Blakeney.

Gary spent many years with MT&T/Bell Aliant until his retirement in 2004. Most recently, he could be found traveling with Sandra, making wine, watching the races in the garage or telling jokes to anyone who would listen! He lived life to the fullest and would encourage us all to do the same.

Gary is survived by his partner, Sandra McCully, Valley; children, Heather Blakeney (Jacob Lamontagne), Edmonton, Alberta, and Michael Blakeney, Truro, and their mother, Anne (Langille) Blakeney, Bible Hill; sister, Donna (Larry) McNutt, North River; many nieces and nephews.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro, where a celebration of Gary’s life will be held 1:30 p.m., Saturday, August 13, 2022, Reverend April Hart officiating. Interment in Terrace Hill Cemetery, Kaulback Street, Truro.

Wake will be held from 4-6 p.m., at Valley Kemptown Fire Hall, 1091 Brookside Road, Valley, and all are welcome to come and continue sharing their memories and stories about Gary with his family.
