It is with great sadness that the family of Boyd Reginald Nowe, 90, of Centre, announces his passing on Sunday, April 3, 2022, at Harbour View Haven Home for Special Care, Lunenburg. Born in Back Centre, he was the son of the late Morton and Kathleen (Nowe) Nowe.
Boyd was a 45-year employee at National Sea Products, Lunenburg, cutting fish in the wet fish department at the age of 15 and becoming a supervisor and forklift instructor.
An avid outdoorsman, Boyd enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping, cutting wood on his woodlot and working around his property. When not outside, Boyd spent many hours in his workshop, building punts and making furniture for family and friends, as well as smoking salmon.
Boyd was a lifetime member of the Rod and Gun Club, the Trappers Association of Nova Scotia, and the Wildlife Federation of Nova Scotia. He was an active member of Grace Lutheran Church, First South where he sang in the church choir and male choir, and he will be greatly missed by those whose lives he touched.
Boyd is survived by his daughter, Jane (Joseph) Wentworth; Wolfville; grandson, Paul (Alison Keefe), Sunnyvale, California; sisters, Joan Feener, Linda Wentzell both of Back Centre, Janet (Ray) Jones, Salisbury, NB, and many nieces and nephews.
Boyd was predeceased by his wife Blanche, sister Dorothy, and brothers Morris, Cedric, and Eric.
