It is with great sorrow that the family of Bert Ross McCoul announce his passing on Monday, June 3, 2024 at Cedarstone Enhanced Care, Truro. Born in Truro, he was a son of the late Arthur and Pearl (Marshall) McCoul.

Bert was a loving husband to his wife, Beverly (Roy) of 52 years. He was also an incredibly loving father to his children, Tamara (Mike) Robar; Derek McCoul (Elizabeth Slipp); his adored grandchildren, Justin and Olivia Robar, they were his pride and joy. He enjoyed watching them grow, cherished time with them and revelled in their accomplishments big and small. Bert is also survived by siblings, Jim (Vicky) McCoul, Truro; Brenda (Gary) Ross, Five Islands; Sherry (Ritchie) Scott, Truro; several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by sister-in-law, Rosealee Babineau.

While Bert loved and valued his family immensely, he had a huge love for hockey, the outdoors and enjoyed many years of golf with great friends. He treasured the memories made trekking through the woods of Earltown with his big brother, Jim. Bert was an employee of Canada Post for many years but had to retire due to his battle with Parkinson’s.

The family would like to extend a thank you to the nurses and staff at Cedarstone for the care and compassion shown to Bert during his stay and a special thank you to Juanita, Tamara, Yvonne, Michelle and Janet who went above and beyond. Also, a special thank you to his sister, Sherry for her support and love during this difficult time.

A private graveside service will held at a later date. If so desired, donations in memory of Bert may be made to Parkinson Society of Nova Scotia. Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall-Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. Tributes, words of comfort and memories may be shared at:
