It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Reginald “Reggie” Jobe, age 89, beloved husband, father, grandfather and uncle, on Friday December 27, 2019 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.
Born in North Sydney, March 3, 1930, Reggie was the son of the late Peter and Margaret (Gillis) Jobe. In his younger years, Reggie looked after the pit pony’s in the Princess Mine. He worked for 41 years with Maritime Tel & Tel, in line construction, combination repair and final years at central office in North Sydney. He was a member of St. Joseph Church, one of the original founding members of the Indian Beach Committee in the late sixties until recent years and was a member of North Sydney Recreation Commission for a number of years. Reggie loved to skate in the winter and swam all summer long right into the fall of the year. He was a self taught artist, loved music and could be seen walking over goat hill most days. Reggie enjoyed feeding stray cats and a few made they’re way into the home including his best buddy Mickey who is going to miss him.
Reggie is survived by his wife of 58 years, Regina (Herve) Jobe, a son Robert Gerard (Carolyn) Jobe, North Sydney. The apple of his eye were his three grandsons Christopher Jobe (Jeana MacLeod), Halifax, Shawn Jobe (Darcie Lewis), Dartmouth, Bryden Jobe (Reghan LeBlanc), North Sydney, a special niece Carol Capstick, as well as many other nieces and nephews.
Reggie was the last surviving member of his immediate family. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by a daughter Donna Jobe in 1971 at the age of 9, his brother Donald (Shirley) Jobe, sisters Margaret (Everett) Capstick and Catherine (Remo) Vallar.
The family would like to thank Dr. Bill MacDonald, Doreen and nursing staff of 3B and the palliative care unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, especially the sitters; Boss, Cass, Alfie and Julie for the compassion and care shown to Reggie and the family.
Visitation for Reggie will be held 2-4 p.m. Monday in the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant Street, North Sydney. A funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday in the funeral home with Rev. Norman MacPhee officiating. Burial will take place in Holy Cross Cemetery at a later date.
