Hayne, Cyril Ross Age 86, of Antigonish and formerly of Goldboro, Guysborough County passed away on Monday, March 7, 2022, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish. Born in Antigonish, he was a son of the late Ross and Marion (MacArthur) Hayne. Cyril served in the Canadian Armed Forces from 1952 to 1955 and recently joined the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 59, Antigonish. He owned and operated Hayne Automotive Supplies in Hamilton, Ontario. He later worked for Canadian Tire in automotive parts for a number of years. He and Rose moved back to Antigonish in 2001.They both loved attending social events and you would often see them enjoying a coffee in the evenings at The Wheel Pizza and Sub Shop. Cyril is survived by his wife, Rose (Hassin); an abundance of nieces, nephews and their families. He was predeceased by brothers, Frank Taker, James Hayne; sisters, Eleanor Taker, Kathleen (Weatherbie) McGaffin, Joyce Johnston and Louise Wagner. Cyril may have been a "city slicker" for many years, but his country roots remained. "Uncle Cyril", besides the great love that he had for Rose, loved music and baseball! He especially loved country and western music. They were regular attendees at the yearly Hank Snow Festival. His incredible memory for lyrics and lovely voice had him always singing along with the radio or his guitar playing friends. Cyril loved to travel either to visit friends and family, or to explore. Some favorites were Hawaii, Jamaica, Bahamas, Mexico, California, and of course Nashville. Retirement allowed wintering on Florida's Gulf Coast, where they kept up their tradition of daily walks hand in hand, bringing smiles to people's faces. Humour was ever present in Cyril.  He was the King of the "one-liners" that instantly resulted in folk’s spontaneous laughter.  Cyril was a kind and caring soul. Forever loved and missed, he was one of the good guys. Visitation was held Friday, March 11, 2022 from 2-4 p.m. in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College St., Antigonish. A graveside service will be held Wednesday, May 11, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in Bayview Cemetery, Goldboro with Lewis MacIntosh officiating. A reception will follow in the Goldboro Interpretive Centre. Family flowers only please. All COVID-19 restrictions will be followed. Memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice. Funeral arrangements are under the dignified and compassionate care of G.W. Giffin Funeral Home, 17545 Highway 316, Country Harbour. On-line condolences may be made at
