Percy Keith « Pop » Boss
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of
Percy Keith « Pop » Boss
Jr of Springhill, NS on September 21st at the age of
Pop was a hard and dedicated worker; he loved being outdoors
and that was where you would always find him, until it was time for a
cup of tea.
A welder by trade, Pop enjoyed his tinkering and was the
neighborhood handyman who could fix anything with anything; he loved
passing these skills on to his son in law Derrick.
From an early age he fell in love with the outdoors and was
an avid hunter, trapper, and fisherman. His favorite time was spent
with his granddaughter and best bud Chrissy, who he called his
« Boog » from the day she was born. He passed on to
her his love of nature, teaching her all he knew about
He enjoyed playing guitar and listening to his « old
timey » country music, which the neighbors got to enjoy as
well. He had many stories and would share them with anyone who would
But most of all, Pop loved his wife Jane. For fifty-six years
they lived a simple life full of good times and bad, but they always
made the most of every day, taking care of each other with the help of
their daughter Marlene who Pop trusted above all others and the two of
them shared a very special unspoken bond.
Pop will be loved and remembered by his wife Jane, daughter
Marlene (Derrick), granddaughter Chrissy, faithful companion Holly,
brother Robin, and special friends Kenny and Dave.
Pop is now reunited with parents Percy Sr and Violet,
brothers Larry and Gary, his son Larry, brother in law Donnie
MacDonald, and special friend and uncle Frank
