Perry Bannister, 59, of Colpitts Settlement, passed away at his home on Saturday, November 20, 2021. Born in Moncton, he was the son of the late Russell and Ethel (Mason) Bannister.
Perry worked most of his life at Waddy and Colpitts Farm until his retirement. He spent several years on the Salisbury Volunteer Fire Department, retiring as Captain in 2014. Through the years he loved hunting, fishing, darts, anything in the great outdoors. Nothing brought Perry more happiness than a good joke or seeing his granddaughters. There was no one more loyal or quick to lend a hand.
Perry will forever live on in the hearts of his loving wife of 41 years, Maureen (Weir); their children, Heidi Cunningham (Derek) and John-Ross Bannister all of Colpitts Settlement; precious granddaughters, Victoria and Veronica Cunningham; siblings Ruthie Leaman (Russell), David Bannister (Helen), Leonard Bannister, Coreen Clark (Doug), and Kellie Hodgin (John); sisters-in-law, Ardis Noiles (Andy), Julia MacCallum, Gwennie Joyce (Paul); along with several nieces, nephews, and so many friends and extended family; including his great-nephew Jordan who he had a special relationship with and his buddies, Keith, Kevin, and Dave – you kept him young.
In addition to his parents, Perry was predeceased by his sisters, Deborah Garber, Helen Bishop (Orris); brother, Russell "Sonny" Bannister; sister-in-law, Lynda Bannister (Lenny); and brothers-in-law, Charles Murphy and Floyd MacCallum (Julia).
Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Perry`s Life at 47 Bannister Rd, Colpitts Settlement, on Saturday, November 27, 2021 from 2 -6 pm. Covid restrictions apply. Interment will be held in Hillside Cemetery at a later date. Arrangements are in care of The Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800).
