Vincent Owen Strong
Due to the weather the graveside service will be postponed until Saturday, January 8th, 2022 at 2:00pm.
 
 
Vincent Owen Strong, 93, of Forest Dale Home and formerly of Pine Glen passed away peacefully on December 29th, 2021 at the home.
 
Vincent was born in Nova Scotia on March 27, 1928 the son of the late Percy and Audrey (Berry) Strong.  
 
He was a hard worker and worked at several jobs over the years.  He  worked as a mechanic at Lounsburys, was a truck driver, Freightliner being his favorite.  He was a talented carpenter and built several houses in Albert County having retired from C & C Construction.  He loved going for drives, taking in the scenery of beautiful Albert County and continued to do so into his 90's.  He was a very devoted husband to his common-law wife of 57 years, Marion.  When he and Marion got together they joined families and he loved all his extended family, always being there when needed.  When Marion had to go to Forest Dale Home he made daily visits to her, never missing a day.  After Marion passed he volunteered at the Home and still went almost everyday, to help make sure everyone was okay and he would get a smile out of all the residents and genuinely cared for each and everyone of them wholeheartedly.  When Vincent finally had to go to the home at the age of 92 he felt like he was already home with all the friends he made over the years of his dedication.    Vincent will be remembered for his kindness and for his great smile.  He was one of a kind and his caring nature will be missed by all who knew him.  Vinent will be fondly remembered.
 
He will be sadly missed by his brother Gerald Strong of NS; step -son, George Steeves of Dawson Settlement; special grandchildren, Debbie Turner (Simon) of Ontario, Greg Steeves (Wendy) of Ontario and Cathy Steeves (Mitchell) of Colpitts Settlement. He will also be missed by several nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends.
 
Besides his parents he was predeceased by his beloved wife, Marion; sister, Jeanetta Elderkin; brothers, Royce, Leonard, Kenneth, George and Eldon; step-daughter-in-law, Margaret Steeves.
