MacBeath David MacIntosh Wendell Meldrum William S. Sterns Trudy (Carkner) Taylor Peter Comstock Leonard Ellen Former staff Friend Friend Friend Friend Friend Parent Honorary degree Dalhousie. Over the course of his career, he developed and consulted on computer software. Colleagues at TransCanada Pipelines, Bechtel, Partec, Lavalin, Foothills, Sable Gas, Fluor, RPA, and Arctic Construction will remember him as their Canadian headquarters go-to guy or field site construction manager in five provinces and one territory. Fred was a fine storyteller, an excellent cook, and an avid dog lover. His friend Linda Rasmussen (’74) of Calgary remembers him as “a wonderful and loyal friend to so many of us at Mount A. Even after we all graduated and moved away, Fred would every now and then do a ‘cross-country check-up,’ either calling us one-by-one long-distance, or sometimes even travelling across the country, stopping in to visit each of us along the way. He made sure we all stayed in touch. Fred’s wonderful warmth and sense of humour will be greatly missed by so many.” Murray Nixon (’57) Submitted by his daughter Susan Nixon (’84) Murray (Dad) passed away on Nov. 24, 2012. After graduating from Mount Allison, he went to McGill medical school then returned to his hometown of Saint John, NB to establish a family practice before moving to Nova Scotia. He was well known on the streets of Halifax for showing an interest in all people. Friends would often remark that Murray was holding office hours in the Public Gardens. He ran many marathons and supported the local running groups, creating life-long friendships. He was also known for his work in home care and contributions to the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation. Murray was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee medal, accepted post-humously on Dec. 17, 2012 by his wife, Dorothy (nee Boyd ’59) from the lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia, the Honourable J.J. Grant (’56). Murray will be missed by his many friends, colleagues, and most of all his family. They were the centre of his world. He loved teaching all of us about the world and showed us how to make a difference to all people. Walter “Bubbles” Peters (’59) Submitted by A. Seth Greenwald, D.Phil. (Oxon) (’59) On Feb. 24, 2013, Mount Allison lost one of its own. Major Walter (Bubbles) Peters, age 76, passed from complications following a stroke. All who knew him remember an omnipresent, upbeat, “bubbly” person who could rise to any occasion and meet any challenge. His prowess as a member of Mount Allison’s first football team, and in later life, as a Canadian jet fighter pilot, instructor, organizer of the RCAF Snowbirds, and ultimate service as a military attaché to the United Nations are but a glimpse of a distinguished life. His legacy is best reflected in the inscription penned on a photograph given to his Mountie roommate: “Obstacles are the stepping stones on the pathway to achievements.” He will be missed by family, friends, and his old bunkie. To honour his life, a memorial scholarship has been established. It will assist the education of students in financial need attending Mount Allison. The following list is compiled from information sent to university advancement from Dec. 6, 2012 to May 15, 2013. Please feel welcome to submit memories of departed Allisonians you have known and loved, and we will be happy to print short versions in the Record and longer versions online ( Fred Carey (’73) Submitted by Anne Carey and Betty and Albert Pasqualotto It is with great sadness that we announce that Fred Carey (’73) passed away in Vancouver on Feb. 25, 2013 after a brief illness.
