Bowers;

Bowers, Mac Tupper, 90, of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 28th, at Queens General Hospital, Liverpool. Born in Liverpool, he was the only son of the late Frank “Todd” and Elsie (Whynot) Bowers. Dad lived in Liverpool his entire life. He was a gentleman, sportsman and most of all a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and most recently a great grandfather. Dad served with the Royal Canadian Navy during WWII with the Convoy Ships. He had a long career with Bowater Mersey Paper Company, retiring as paper mill superintendent after 62 years. Dad enjoyed many types of sports and excelled at most. Some of his proudest accomplishments were the years he played with the Liverpool Larrupers baseball team and where he was given the nickname “Slugger”. He was a past member of the Liverpool Curling Club and the Liverpool Golf and Country Club. Many happy hours were spent on the lakes and rivers fishing and in the forest hunting with his “pals”. Dad also enjoyed spending time at his camp on the Medway, the Govenor’s Inn, that was built by he and his dad. But above all, it was his family that mattered most. He was devoted to his wife Louise and very proud of his children and their families. His wonderful stories of his life’s adventures will always be in our memories. He was predeceased by his wife Louise (Donkin) Bowers. He is survived by daughters Cathy Bowers (Gordon Marshall), Anne Bowers, both of Liverpool; grandchildren Trevor Kelley, of Edmonton, Craig Kelley, of Victoria, Blair (Keri )Kelley, of Victoria, Carolyn Marshall (Brad Touesnard ), of Milford; great grandsons Mac and Max. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral and Cremation Service, Liverpool. There will be no funeral service by request. A “family get together’ will be held at a later date. No flowers by request. Donations may be made to the Queens General Hospital Foundation or to the Liverpool Curling Club. Condolences may be made to the family at www.chandlersfuneral.com

Condolence from Fred Giffin on January 3rd, 2014 4:35 am

Shocked and saddened by the passing of Mac. Colleague at work but good friend at the golf course and curling rink after retirement. So many great stories in those years at the golf course with our ever changing foursome. One of my favourites is seeing Mac walk off the ninth green with the flag instead of his putter after getting a birdie. Whether talking baseball, golf, curling or good times at the mill, Mac was one of those special people you could not help but respect and like a lot. So glad that along with other golfing buddies, I was able to have a great visit with him last year. Sincere condolences to Anne, Cathy and Gordie and the entire family.

Cathy and Ann and family: I am sad to hear you have lost your Dad. He was a good friend to my father, Fred Dagley. They played ball together in the Larruper Team and curled at the Liverpool Curling Club. Your parents were so kind to our family when my Dad died at such an young age. We always remember their kindness. My sincere condolences.

Condolence from Sandy Milford, Waynesboro, VA on January 6th, 2014 10:12 am

I was so sorry to hear of your Dad’s death. My parents, Noel and Peggy Milford, were great friends of Mac and Lou and enjoyed many memorable times with them both. The friendship of your Mom and Dad were a big part of what kept our father returning to Nova Scotia each year and he always spoke of them with the greatest affection. As you may have noted, Dad passed away in July of last year and I hope their spirits have all found one another. I wonder if we are still producing such remarkable people who will be so missed in their passing.

Sandy Milford
