Victor Kaneb

26 June, 1924 – 2 March, 2021.

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Victor Kaneb at the age of 96 at St. Joseph’s Villa. He was the last of the five Kaneb brothers, sons of the late Thomas and the late Agey (Kalil) Kaneb. He was predeceased by Nicholas (late Charlene), George (late Katherine), Wilfred (late Mayford), Edward (late Catherine) and sister Lorraine Gathman. He is survived by his sister Marilyn, nieces Stephanie, Vanessa, Leslie, Gretchen, Elizabeth, Karen, Lisa, Elaine, Cynthia and Laurel and nephews Tom, William, Mark, Frederick, Edward, and Christopher. He also has many grand nieces and nephews.

Victor’s career was centered around his forty-two years at Universal Terminals. He was well known by everyone.

In retirement he enjoyed driving along the St. Lawrence River and sighting ships trafficking the River. This usually ended with a fish roll and onion rings at the Blue Anchor.

His time at St. Joseph’s Villa was full of kindness, care and much teasing from the health care givers, especially Debby (Milly) and Dr. Subhash Patel. He also enjoyed the company of Willy Deschamps, Cathy and Blair MacKenzie, Yvonne Last and Judy Lauzon. Cremation has taken place and services will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers donations to St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre, 14 York Street Cornwall, Ontario Canada K6J 5T2 would be appreciated by the family.

“Remember me, in your heart, your thoughts and your memories of the times we laughed and spent together.”
