<div itemprop="description">AYLWARD...... <br> <br>Lionel William Aylward, age 76, of Falmouth, Hants County, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 5, 2016, in the Hants Community Hospital, Windsor. <br> <br>Born on March 26, 1940 in Windsor, Hants County, Nova Scotia, Lionel was the son of the late Frederick Leon Aylward and Leah (Turbitt) Aylward. <br> <br>Lionel is survived by his loving wife, the former Susan Smith; son, John (Kathy) Aylward, daughter, Kim (Roger) Allen, son, Doug (Tammy) Aylward. grandfather to Marc and Melissa, Isaac and Hannah, Jason and Jake and a great-grandfather to Lily; sister, Bernice Aylward (B.C.) and her children, Rick and Barb; several nieces and nephews. <br> <br>Besides his parents, Lionel was predeceased by his brother, Donald Aylward; and brother-in-law, Robert Aylward. <br> <br>His first early full time employment was with Avon Valley Greenhouses in Falmouth from 1957 to 1963. Lionel was a carpenter by trade for over forty years. He worked for Swinamer & Eldridge Construction in Windsor; Steven & Fiske; A & M Construction; Dineen’s Construction; and other companies in Halifax. He was a member of the Carpenter Union Local #83.

He loved working the land, and tending his cattle. <br> <br>He enjoyed gardening, playing rook & crib, reading Western novels while wearing his favorite knitted socks made with love by his daughter, dancing, watching the Blue Jays and weekend coffee dates with his boys and lobster feeds. In his early days he pulled tug of war, a sport carried on by his sons. He handled his cancer with strength and dignity. His expressions were “You gotta deal with the hand you're dealt” and “It is what it is”. <br> <br>The family would like to thank the health care teams in Halifax and Windsor for their care and compassion. <br> <br>Family flowers only please. <br> <br>Visitation will be 7-9 pm Thursday, December 8, 2016 in the Lindsay Windsor Funeral Home, 194 King Street, Box 2218 Windsor, NS, B0N 2T0. <br> <br>Memorial Service will be 2 pm Friday, December 9, 2016 in Lindsay’s Windsor Funeral Home Chapel, with Rev.
