July 4, 1937 – May 7, 2012
Born on July 4, 1937 in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia and raised by Arthur and Cassie Nugent (nee MacDonald) our beloved Uncle Bernie passed away on Monday, May 7, 2012 in Calgary at the age of 74.
Bernie will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his many close friends and extended family in Calgary and in the Maritimes. It was during his time as an Radiology technician at a Bathurst hospital that he met his lifelong friend, Jim Go and thereafter the entire Go clan. In his retirement, Bernie moved to Calgary to be closer to this adopted family. This Bluenoser shared with us his love of the Maritimes through his homemade salt cod fish cakes, and his yarns of life down home. Bernie’s tremendous sense of humor and unfailing kindness, quick wit and occasional sharp tongue, made him an integral part of the family. He was our friend, uncle, and grand-uncle and will remain now and forever in our hearts.
