ENGLAND Stephen Thomas 56, Port Hastings, It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Stephen Thomas England on October 29, 2018. Born in Guysborough he was the son of Marie (Ryan) and the late Thomas England. Stephen grew up in Middle Melford, Guysborough County and upon completion of high school, attended Canso Regional Vocational School where he graduated from the plumbing program.  He then went on to work at Stora Forest Industries until illness forced his retirement in 1998. He will be remembered for having a heart of gold and would go out of his way to help anyone in need.
