Obituary of Fielding Munroe
Age 61, of Halifax. It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden death of our father Barry, on April 21, 2018. Barry was born on July 7, 1956 on Sober Island, Nova Scotia, where he was raised until his teenage years when he moved to Halifax.
Barry owned and operated his own company "Munroe's Transfer " for many years and had pride in being well known by many local business's as the right man to call when needing such things as pianos delivered. Barry especially loved to spend time with his family; camping, boating, bomb fires on the beach and doing his best to keep the lobster to himself. He loved to teach his children and grandchildren any knowledge he had on such things as working on cars and many types of handyman skills. He was considered a father figure by some of his nephews and had a fierce love for all his family.
At 6'4" Barry was tall in stature but nothing compared to the size of his heart, all the love he gave will be sorely missed by his daughters, Judylee Moore, Amy (Roy) Munroe; sons, Jamie Munroe Stevens, Daniel (Becca) Miller; Grandchildren, Isaac Miller, Emmajean Miller whom were his pride and joy, they called him Grampy, but at times affectionately called him Grumpy; sisters, Judy (Ron) McNair, Ruth Aldrich, Leola (Donnie) Behie, Elizabeth (Eugene) Crosby, Alberta Murray, Francine Munroe; brothers, Graham (Eunice) Munroe, Lyndel Munroe.
Many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, as well as great great nieces and nephews; Godson, Jeremy Dickie.
Barry was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Dorothy (Boutlier) Munroe; brothers Glenard, Harry, and Lockie; sisters, Bonnie and Gladys.
Special thanks to Barry's niece April McNair for stepping in and lending a helping hand during this difficult time.
