Age 61, of Halifax passed away unexpectedly March 15, 2021 in the QEII from cancer. He is a son of the late Eugene and Mary (Fitzgerald) Schmeisser-Grandy.
He is survived by his wife, Stella; and beloved daughter, Katie; brothers, Jim, Paul and Lloyd; sisters, Cecilia, Marion, Susan and Georgina; as well as numerous extended family. He was predeceased by his son, Joseph; brothers, Jack, Billy and Tom; in-laws, George and Kay Leaman; brother-in-law, Cyril; and niece, Tammy.
He is a retired Halifax longshoreman, working for over 35 years. Eugene had a great sense of humour and loved the simple life, being home with family, golf, nascar, his ride-on mower, herbs, his kitty cats, and cheering on the Montreal Canadians with his son by his side. With the loss of his son Joseph went a piece of his heart and life was never the same.
