Glen D. "Jessie" O'Brien

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Glen Derek "Jessie" O'Brien, age 64, of River Hebert.  Jessie passed away, with loving family by his side, in the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Thursday, August 22, 2019.

Born in Lower Cove, NS, he was a son of Shirley (O'Brien) Dwyer and the late Ronald Dwyer.

Jessie loved to hunt, fish, and spend time in the outdoors.  Though he battled with liver disease, he pushed life to the fullest, making sure he passed having experienced life and having no regrets.

In addition to his mother Shirley, he is survived by his children Paul (Autumn) Arsenault, Amherst, William O'Brien, Halifax, April Chapman, Amherst, and Marion Pipes, Amherst; 10 grandchildren; siblings Kelley (Kenny) Roberts, Joggins, Donna Ryan, Maccan, Tanya Dwyer, Amherst, Michelle Brown, Amherst, Kevin St. Peters, Amherst; special nephew Nathan O'Brien and special niece Tonya Baker.

He was predeceased by his father, his paternal grandparents Jack and Lillian (Collins) Dwyer, his maternal grandparents Ernest and Gladys (Burbine) O'Brien, and his Uncle Frank "Ping".

Arrangements have been entrusted to Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church St., Amherst, NS from where visitation will take place on Monday from 11 am until 3 pm, followed by his graveside service in the St. Denis Cemetery, Minudie, NS.
