Christopher Nolan
1932-2019
With great sadness, the family of Chris Nolan, age 86 of Oakland Road,
announce his passing on July 19, 2019. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland,
Chris was among thousands of children evacuated to Canada in WWII,
landing at Pier 21 in Halifax in 1940 and moving to Yarmouth to live
with his grandmother, Mary Katherine Vickery. Chris studied pharmacy
at Dalhousie University, graduating with high honours and winning two
gold medals in 1957. While at Dal, he met and married Geraldine
(Geri) Freeman of Caledonia, N.S. The couple later moved to Bedford
where Chris established Sunnyside Pharmacy and raised three children,
David, Stephen and Melanie. Chris became very well known in Bedford,
where he served on countless committees, town council and as deputy
mayor, and helped lead the establishment of recreation facilities,
environmental policies and planning priorities for the town. A
visionary leader in pharmacy as well, Chris was a founding director of
the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia (PANS) and chaired many boards
and committees of pharmaceutical organizations, provincially and
nationally. He was a pioneer in creating one of pharmacy’s
earliest computerized patient records systems, providing specialized
pharmacy services to nursing homes, introducing group insurance plans
for pharmacists and certified dispensers, and developing guidelines
for private third-party insurance programs. Chris received many
awards for his contributions to his community and profession,
including the prestigious Robins Bowl of Hygiea for Community Service
and PANS’ first-ever Member of the Year Award, created in his
honour. He and Geri moved to the Mahone Bay area in the early 1990s,
where he was a member of the Mahone Bay Area Lion’s Club, the
first chairman of Trinity United Church Council, and chairman of the
Oakland-Indian Point Residents’ Association. Always a lover of
the outdoors, Chris was an avid canoeist, skier, sailor and traveller,
enjoying nothing more than a quiet paddle on Keji lake. In his spare
time, he fashioned stained glass windows and lampshades, and fine
furniture from wood. His family remembers him fondly for his dry wit,
sharp intelligence, patience, fairness, kindness, and grace. The
great sorrow of his life was the loss of his son, Stephen, in 2009.
He is survived by wife Geri, son David (Tracey), daughter Melanie
(Keith), and five grandchildren, Alexander, Ian, Peter, Benjamin and
Mariel, as well as many cousins. In lieu of flowers, donations may be
made in Chris’s name to Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation
and/or Trinity United Church. A celebration of Chris’s life
will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, July 31 at Trinity United Church in
Mahone Bay. Cremation and arrangements entrusted to the care of
Mahone Funeral Home, P.O. Box 200, 32 Parish St., Mahone Bay, NS B0J
2E0 (902-624-8241). Online condolences may be sent to the family by
