Daryl Cail

Daryl Joseph Cail, born on January 22, 1947, passed away peacefully on July 15, 2023, surrounded by his loving family at the Albert House. He was the son of Wesley and Lillian Cail, and his early years were spent in Moncton, NB. Daryl attended Harrison Trimble High School before starting his career in the concrete industry in Nova Scotia. His passion and charismatic personality led him to become a respected leader within the Stevens Group, eventually retiring as president of Quality Concrete in 2012.

Aside from his successful career, Daryl was actively involved in several causes and organizations. He dedicated his time to the Atlantic Concrete Association and the Nova Scotia Curling Association. Most notably, he joined a Fund Raiser Committee that contributed to the establishment of Albert House, where he served as a volunteer and positively impacted numerous lives.

Beyond his professional and philanthropic endeavors, Daryl was musically talented and played an active role as a vocalist and bass player in “The Gemtones,” a popular rock group during his youth. Their mesmerizing performances and several album releases catapulted them into the hearts of music enthusiasts throughout the Maritimes.

Daryl is survived by his daughters, Lisa (Keith) and Jody (Kenny), and the mother of his children, Brenda Cail. He also leaves behind his cherished grandsons, PJ and Darien, whom he deeply loved. His immediate family includes his sister Sharon Baker (Dave) and brother Peter Cail (Rita). In more recent years, he found love and companionship with Claudette Mills, who was a devoted partner during the last eight years of his life. Daryl embraced Claudette’s sons, Sebastien, Luc, and Martin, as his own and also cherished his step-grandchildren, Nicola and Eva. Additionally, he had a wide circle of wonderful friends and colleagues he met throughout his lengthy and successful career in the Maritimes.

Daryl’s infectious personality and unforgettable laughter touched the lives of everyone he encountered. His loving heart radiated kindness and left a lasting impact wherever he went. The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Albert House for their exceptional care and compassion. They also express their appreciation to Dr. Elivia Morrison, Daryl’s friend and family doctor, for her unwavering support during their time of need. They would also like to thank Dr. Mohammed Harb and the staff at the Dr. Sheldon Rubin Oncology Clinic for their compassionate care.
