It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Hazen Malcolm Veinot, 82, of Auburndale, at South Shore Regional Hospital on April 10, 2024, following his valiant, years long fight against illnesses.

Born in Riverport on July 27, 1942, Malcolm was the beloved son of Harry and Gladys (Emeno) Veinot. During his early years Malcolm lived "up, down and across the LaHave" until 1972 when he purchased his present home in Auburndale, remaining there for over 50 years until his passing.
He began his working career at the Shamrock store in Bridgewater, later taking over as manager of the Chester Shamrock store. Starting in 1966 Malcolm served for 33 years as Purchasing Agent for the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (MODL). In 1976, he graduated from the four year Certificate Program in Municipal Administration offered by the Institute of Public Affairs, Dalhousie University.
After his retirement from MODL, Malcolm operated a charter bus tour company, providing his clients with many popular tours to Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island.
Malcolm was an active volunteer in his community having served many years with Big Brothers, Big Sisters and with the Kinsmen Club, including a term as President. He then served many years with K-40, including a term as President.
