Hugh Randall Kyte

KYTE, Hugh Randall – originally from Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, passed away peacefully on July 23 at the age of 93 in Cornwall. Beloved husband of the late Margaret Kyte (née Spinella). Loving father of Lynn Kyte, Randy Kyte (Jennifer) and Terry Kyte (Darlene).

Cherished grandfather of Jeff, Mark, Trevor, Meagan, Emily, Justin and Andrew, and step-grandfather of Bryan (Alex), Zachary, Ben, and Arielle. Son of the late Frederick and Suzannah (née Roberts) Kyte.

Survived by sister Mirilou Jayes.

Predeceased by brothers Henry Kyte, Fred Jr. Kyte and Richard Kyte, and by sisters Jean Kyte and Eleanor Senior.

Hugh began his career sailing the Great Lakes, before settling in Cornwall where he spent the next 42 years at the Standard-Freeholder. That’s where he met the love of his life, Margaret, to whom he was happily married for 64 years. While holding the family title of Champion lawn darts player, Hugh could also take on anyone at a game of pool – even at the age of 93. When not reminiscing about his days on the ships or his hometown in Louisbourg, Cape Breton, Hugh was an avid volunteer in the community, as well as a member of the Navy Club and Cornwall Legion. He and his great sense of humour will be greatly missed by many family and friends.

Resting at Lahaie & Sullivan Cornwall Funeral Home, West Branch, 20 Seventh Street West from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 29, 2022. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, July 30, 2022 in Trinity Anglican Church at 2 p.m. followed by interment at Woodlawn Cemetery.
