Cuthbert "Bert" Joseph Kilbride
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Bert Kilbride announces his passing on Friday, November 29, 2019, at the Doctor Everett Chalmer’s Hospital Fredericton NB. Born on February 19, 1934, in Foxley River PEI, he was the son of the late Laughlin and Regina (Murphy) Kilbride. In addition to his parents, Bert was predeceased by his 4 brothers and 5 sisters, being the last remaining member of his family.
Bert will be greatly missed by his wife of 63 years, Carmel (Hachey) Kilbride; his children Kevin Kilbride (Penny), Steve Kilbride (Janet) and Lori Scolaro (Vince); his grandchildren Adam and Scott Kilbride and Caitlyn Scolaro, as well as, many nieces, nephews, friends and family.
Bert was a proud member of the Legion of Mary. He was one of the first lay ministers in New Brunswick and was a strong supporter of his church, Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Parish. He was an entrepreneur and a consummate salesman. A member of AA for 53 years, he offered his support and guidance to many over the years. His caring spilled over into all aspects of his life and this was apparent to all who knew him.
A visitation will take place on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at the Oromocto Funeral Home, 108 Winnebago St., Oromocto New Brunswick. A funeral mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, 7 Leverman St., Fredericton, NB, on Wednesday, December 4, 2019, at 11:00 am with the Rev. Dr. Michael McGowan officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations to Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Parish would be appreciated by the family.
We would also like to thank all of the doctors and nurses in the ER, ICU and Cardiac Units for the care and compassion they showed to Bert and the family.
