Godfrey; Edward “Bub”

Posted By Obits On November 22, 2010 @ 11:45 am In Obituaries | 42 Comments


It is with great sadness that the family of Edward M. “Bub” Godfrey announces his passing peacefully at Queens Manor, Liverpool, on Saturday, November 20th, 2010.

Born in Brooklyn, he was a son of the late Arnold and Marion (Cole) Godfrey.

Bub worked for Bowater Mersey Paper Company for thirty seven years and went lobster fishing on his vacations. He always spoke fondly about his duck and rabbit hunting trips with his black lab, Lady. An excellent carpenter, family members were the grateful recipients of his many wood working projects. Married for over sixty years, Bub was devoted to his beloved wife Margie and his family. His grandchildren and great grandchildren were his pride and joy. Family gatherings were always the highlight of his life and his sense of humor and ability to bring a smile will be sorely missed.

Surviving besides his wife are his daughters: Joyce Raymond of Burlington, On; Joan (Donald) Moreau of Mill Village; Betty (Bernie) Hatt of Conqueral Bank; Peggy (Murray) Whynot of Milton. Sons: Allan (Margo)  of Liverpool and Steven (Jackie) of Milton. 11 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. Brothers: George (Georgie) of Kingston, On.; Andrew (Lil) Beach Meadows; John (Joanne) of Brooklyn; David (Janet) of Brooklyn.

He was predeceased by a granddaughter Ann; twin brothers Ronald in infancy and Reginald; son in law Greg Raymond.

Funeral service will be held Thursday, November 25th, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. from Chandlers’ Funeral Chapel, Liverpool. Lay Minister Peter Anthony officiating. No flowers by request, donations may be made to The Nova Scotia Heart and Stroke Foundation or to charity of choice. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

Condolence from Paul & Francie Martin on November 24th, 2010 10:06 am

Although Paul & I were saddened to hear of Buba’s passing we do celebrate his life with you in our thoughts & prayers.
We had the opportunity of hosting Buba & Margie at our home together with family members many years ago.His strength of character certainly showed in his tenacity to move around with his disability.
We have heard many stories from Greg & Joyce about Buba & feel we got to know him even better because of this. And you Margie,all the stories of your undying love & support over time had added quality & dignity to Buba’s life. You are a special lady, you were his lady!
In talking with Joyce she couldn’t say enough about the wonderful celebration you all had this past summer happy Buba could visit with all his children,Grandkids & family members. Such a great & lasting memory to cherish.Buba was at his happiest along side you Margie and surrounded by his loving family.
He will be remembered.
Sincerely, Francie & Paul Martin.
