On June 10, 2021 we lost a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Malcolm Fenwick Wortman, 83 at the Jordan LifeCare Centre.
Born on April 28, 1938 in Moncton, he was the son of the late Ross and Ardella (Ward) Wortman.
Malcolm was a hard worker. He worked at Blakney Concrete and Gordon Concrete until 1966 when he began work at CNR until his retirement in 1994 as a heavy equipment operator.
Malcolm loved to travel both in Canada and the U.S.A. to the steam shows. He loved to garden, hunt, fish, snowmobile, four-wheel, motorcycle, blue grass music, making maple syrup and country drives, especially in the spring to see the deer. In later years he looked forward to camping at "the lot" with the family. Malcolm was a fixer. If it was broke, he could probably fix it.
He courageously fought the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease for several years.
Survived and sadly missed by his wife of 66 years Joyce (Gibson); daughter Kathy (Duaine Lewis), granddaughter Tammy Horsman (Darren), great granddaughters Hannah and Hailey, granddaughter Melissa Steeves (Craig), great grandchildren Elizabeth, Cameron and Jessica, granddaughter Cara Lewis (Greg Prowse); son Bruce (late Debbie, 2012), granddaughter Dawn Russell (Mark DeJong), great grandchildren Claire, Evan and Morgan, granddaughter Ashley Wortman (Frank Newcomb); son Todd (Joanne Butland), grandchildren Mike, Lindsay and Stephanie; brother Cecil (Elaine); brother-in-law Ken Gibson (Charline); sister-in-law Pamela Gibson and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Malcolm was predeceased by his brothers Vernon and Donald and sister Elva MacDonald.
Resting at Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800) there will be a private family service officiated by Pastor Keith Lewis, with Covid restrictions in place. Interment at Boundary Creek Cemetery.
The service will livestream Sunday, June 13 at 2:30 pm on the Salisbury Funeral Home and Crematorium Facebook page.
The family wish to thank the awesome staff at the Jordan LifeCare Centre for their marvelous care that Malcolm received during his stay there.
If desired, memorials to the Boundary Creek Cemetery would be appreciated.
