Drennan, Sydney “Syd” Byars Hayden

Posted by on September 9, 2013

Syd DrennanPeacefully at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 Sydney “Syd” Drennan of Morrisburg in his 82nd year.  Syd loved the St. Lawrence River and made his home at 62 Fifth Street, East, Morrisburg for many years.  He could be seen, many a day, sitting in a favourite chair on the grassy banks of Mariatown enjoying the summer breezes and watching the ships make their way through his beloved St. Lawrence River waters. 

The one thing he loved most was family.  Syd was the loving father of four daughters, Nancy, Carol (Don MacGillvray), Linda and Brenda as well as nephew Kevin (Sherry Gallivan).  He was the cherished grandfather of Jordan (Crystal), Rheanna (Kevin) Neilson, Hayden, Shylo and Madison Drennan and great-grandfather of Maddix Drennan. 

Syd was born January 15, 1932 in Iroquois to parents James Drennan and Constance “Connie” (nee Bellamy).  Syd enjoyed his work and was known for always putting in an honest days work for his pay.  He was quite a handyman and if not fixing something for family, then it was for a neighbour or friend.  He repaired the weaving and loom machines while working for the Caldwell Linen Mills in Iroquois, and was a caretaker for the Medical Clinics and The St. Lawrence Commission.  Any job was to be done well and right, Syd made sure of that and taught those same values to his children.  He adhered to the St. John’s Anglican Church in Iroquois and in his spare time volunteered for the Boy Scouts of Canada and as a fireman in Iroquois.  Syd was always one, in his own unobtrusive way, to help others.  He gave generously to both CHEO and the Ottawa Mission. 

Respecting Syd’s quiet, unassuming nature a private graveside service will be held at St. John the Baptist Anglican Cemetery, Iroquois with Rev. Susan McCullough officiating.  Parker Funeral Home, Morrisburg (613 543-2271) entrusted with arrangements.  Memorial donations in his memory may be made to either CHEO or the Ottawa Mission Foundation.  Condolences may be made at www.parkerofmorrisburg.com
