At the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen NB, Royce Clark Hanley of Back Bay NB passed away on June 12, 2018, after a lengthy illness. Son of Beverley and Pauline (McCarty) Hanley, he was born in Back Bay NB on June 14, 1943.

Royce is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Mae (Patterson) Hanley, a devoted father to: Michelle Stewart (Lee), Darren (Stacy), Derek (Denise) and Melissa Cook (Tony); a committed papa to: Darcy (Cortney), Shenine (Clayton), Dexter, Paige (Matt), Brianna, Regan Belle and Logan; playful great-grandfather to his three great-granddaughters: Raelynn, Khylee and Lennon; brothers: Ronnie (Hilda), Garry (Jean), Cyril (Norma), Ellery (Donna), Clifford (Ella Mae) and Carl (Gloria), one sister: Beryl Huckins (Caulder); sister-in-law: Mary Lou Hanley; his brother by choice: Wayne Hooper (Karen); sister-in-law: Lottie Richardson (Perry); brothers-in-law: Fred Patterson (Geraldine) and Wesley Patterson (Josephine); and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides his parents, Royce was predeceased by his brothers: Delton, Harold and Billy; one nephew: Delton; one niece: Avis Golden; and by his in-laws: Thomas and Kathleen Patterson.

Royce was a man of great faith and a lifelong member of Sea View Full Gospel Church in Back Bay, where he served as Chairman of the Board for many years and was a dedicated Prayer Warrior. A carpenter by trade, he owned his own company, Royce Hanley General Contracting Ltd. and has built many homes in the area. For the last five years, he enjoyed spending time in the garage wood-working and hanging out with his brothers. After retirement, he loved his gazebo and fishing at his camp at McDougall Lake and he loved spending quality time with his family there. He enjoyed singing with his brothers and cousins "sisters" during many church functions being known as The Hanley Boys and Girls. Royce was very social and liked going with his brothers each morning to Tim's where they met with the coffee club and many friends. He will be lovingly remembered and missed by his family.

Special thanks to the Eastern Charlotte Extra Mural Nurses, Dr. Natarajan and Dr. Burnell, the staff at the Charlotte County Hospital Palliative Care and the great support from the Charlotte County Cancer Society. Your care and support will always be remembered with great gratitude.

The family would also like to give a very special thank you to Pastor Randy Crozier and his wife Paula. Thanks to all who visited and supported us through it all.
