Cyril Hammond - 71, Spryfield-
The Man, the Myth, the Warrior…the Legend.
Cyril passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, at the QEII Halifax Infirmary on Saturday Feb 6, 2021. Born in Bell Island Newfoundland, he was the son of the late Nathaniel Hammond and Mary (Power). Cyril is survived by his son, Edwin (Laura); daughter, Tina (Billy Johnston); grandchildren Sara, Kyle, Baillie, Nic, Ashley, Drake and Brady; great grandchildren Kasin and Oliver; brothers Freddy (Judy), Randall and sisters Lorraine (Ross), Mary Margaret (Kristopher) and Eillen
Predeceased by the light of his life for 47 years Alberta Gale (Murphy), brother Gerald, mother-in-law Audrey May, father-in-law William Murphy, sister-in-law Roseanne and nephew Corey Murphy.
Cyril loved family, friends, fishcakes, boiled dinner, ribs, Pepsi and Star Trek. He disliked cucumbers, hypocrites, Mike Holmes show and people who did not know the rules of the road.
Cyril was a Red Seal Electrician who retired from the Halifax Shipyard with over 25 years of service. He owned CJ Electric AKA (No Show Electric) for over 25 years and was one of the best in his trade. Cyril was great at pool, cards, grilling ribs, jokes and making everyone feel appreciated.
Cyril loved to tell stories at Tim Hortons and McDonalds and you could be sure 50% of every story was true, you just never knew which 50%.
Cyril was a superhero to his grandchildren; he adored them and would move mountains for them.
Special thanks to son-in-law Billy for the laughs and help over the years and to Gina, Connie, Debbie, Donna, Krystal, Lisa and Dawn.
