St. Elmo Gordon Tupper
1920-2018
St. Elmo Gordon Tupper – 98, of
Kentville, passed away Wednesday, December 19, 2018 in the
Veteran’s Unit of the Soldier’s Memorial Hospital,
Middleton. Born in Head of St. Margaret’s Bay, Halifax
County, he was a son of the late Charles and Flossie (Fader) Tupper.
Our wonderful father, with his warm smile and twinkling blue eyes, had
the most giving spirit and was always asking what he could do for you
when you visited him even right up to the very end. He was a Veteran
of the Second World war, having enlisted in the Royal Canadian Army,
serving in the Dental Corps from 1940-1946, and was stationed in
Yarmouth, Halifax, Cornwallis, Aldershot and Stadacona, where he was
in charge of the clinic on North Street. He was a member of the Royal
Canadian Legion, Kings Branch No. 6, Kentville as well as the last
surviving charter member of the Kentville Lions Club (chartered in
1949). Elmo was community minded and was involved with Cubs and
Scouts, volunteered for the CNIB and the Canadian Diabetes
Association, delivered Meals-on-Wheels and donated 50 pints of blood.
He retired after many years as a shoe salesman with Bata Shoes and
Discount Shoe Land. After losing his wife, Marion, 41 years ago, Elmo
devoted his life to church, his family, friends, extended family and
all of our fur babies. He was loved and respected by all who knew him
and was blessed with many wonderful friends, including his hunting and
fishing buddies. He always enjoyed playing 45’s and was able
to do that right up to the end. He would always accompany those who
visited him to the door to say goodbye and would then look out the
window and wave as you drove away. He had incredible strength, was a
hard worker and provider who taught his family the true meaning of
love and provided guidance and assistance when needed. He was a gentle
and sweet man and a hero to us all. He is survived by two daughters,
Judith (Bill) Young, Wolfville; Donna (Doug) Mailman, Kentville; a
son, Kevin (Beverley), Quispamsis, NB; a sister-in-law, Carol Smith,
Ontario; two brothers-in-law, Albert Smith, Ontario and Arnold Lemmon,

grandchildren, Rebecca and Hayley Mailman, Kentville; Jaden and Ashton
Mailman, AB; Lincoln Gibson, Enfield; Ryan Kwong, Toronto, ON and
