Vaughan Kencil Webb – 84, Sutherlands Lake, passed away on Sunday, October 22, 2023, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in North Greenville, Cumberland County, to the late Earle and Margaret (Moore) Webb, Vaughan spent most of his young life in Westchester where he went to school and worked before moving to Truro to find work. His work included Carpentry, IGA, Margolians, Prudential Life Insurance, Blue Cross and Sears before taking the plunge to go into business for himself as a farmer, and later owning and operating Glenholme Antiques with his wife Glenda which they operated together until retiring at Sutherlands Lake.

Vaughan and Glenda were a true "team" in their lives and their motto was "everything together". They loved hosting Happy Hours at the Lake and family dinners and all kinds of theme parties and music jams over the years. They enjoyed traveling to places such as Poland, Mexico, California, British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and their many trips to Florida most winters. They also spent a lot of time on PEI where they both played in a Bluegrass Band called SK Bluegrass in which Vaughan played the mandolin.

Vaughan especially loved baseball and played on several teams during his life and was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the 1973 Truro Bearcats Provincial Championship Team.

Vaughan enjoyed working outdoors and had a great love of working in the woods. He was known for his wood piling skills and often heard saying "a place for every stick and every stick in its place". In his later years he enjoyed growing hostas and other different trees and trimming Christmas Trees to sell.

Vaughan is survived by his daughter, Sherry Webb Teed (Gary White), Dresden, Ontario; sons, Kevin Webb, Valley; Tim MacKay (Joanne), Argyle Shore, Prince Edward Island; Brent MacKay (Karen Morton), Slave Lake, Alberta; Michael MacKay (Cindy Ryan), Portapique; grandchildren, Christina Webb, Petrolia, Ontario; Samantha Fleck (Zak), Dresden, Ontario; Cody Webb, Bible Hill; Chantelle Dobson (Adrian), Westchester; Andrew MacKay, Moncton, New Brunswick; Mallory Gero (Devin), Valley; Brian MacKay (Cassie), Ebenezer, Prince Edward Island; Stephen MacKay, Slave Lake, Alberta; Thomas MacKay (Christine Lund), Moncton, New Brunswick; Amy MacKay (Dakota Byers), Edmonton, Alberta; siblings, Leon Webb and Eileen Brown, both of Westchester.

Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his loving wife, Glenda (Milligan); brothers, Garnet Webb, Carman Webb; sisters, Margaret Rushton, Joyce Langille; daughters-in-law, Brenda Webb, Susan MacKay; grandsons, Brandon Webb, Jamie Holmes.

The family would like to give an extra special thanks to the staff and doctors at the Palliative Unit of the Colchester East Hants Health Centre for their extra care of Vaughan during his time there. In lieu of flowers, donations in Vaughan's memory to Colchester - East Hants Hospice Society are welcomed.
