Tattrie, Harold (Dick) Dickson
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and brother on Friday, December 18th, 2020 at his home in Truro. Born on June 7th, 1944 in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, he was the son of the late Harold and Beulah Tattrie. Dick was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed playing bingo with his bingo buddies, Bruce and Gail, and was always up for a good game of crib. Dick spent most of his career at Will-Kare Paving, dedicating over 40 years of service to a job he loved. He considered his employer and co-workers his extended family. After retiring in November 2019, he always enjoyed visiting the boys at the shop.
Dick is survived by his wife of 53 years, Carrie (Joudrie), his loving children; Richard (Sharon), Truro, Lynne (Lowell) Sherry, Truro, Scott (Paulette), Moncton, his grandchildren; Caitlyn, Rylie, Anne-Ashley, Brady, Mykaela, Jaclyn, and Brielle, and his great-grandchildren, Lucas and Owen. He is also survived by his brothers, Ralph (Cecilia), Wayne (Gloria), Frank (Carol), Roger (Rose); sisters, Peggy Miller, Joan (Geoff) Hollings, Rose (Peter) Johnson, Brenda (Carman) Tattrie, Maryann Tattrie (whom he considered like his daughter), sister in-law, Janet Tattrie, his beloved dog Maggie, along with many nieces and nephews. Dick was predeceased by his sisters, Florence Miller and Marie Blenkhorn, and brother Billy Tattrie.
