G Douglas Manzer 2017

Obituary Overview
In Loving Memory
It is with heavy hearts that the family of G. Douglas Manzer, age 76, of Amherst, announces his passing on Friday November 24th 2017.
The son of the late George and Dora Manzer (Quinn), Douglas was the loving husband of Betty Manzer (Pettigrew), loving father to Kim McLean (Preston), Amherst, Julie Leblanc (Todd), Amherst, Robin Manzer (Kim), St. Marys, Ontario, Amy Manzer (Paul Porter), Amherst, step-father to Mike Margeson (Kim), Berwick, Grampy to Robbie (Kaitlyn), Morgan (Scott), Katrina, Sarah, Reese, Ella, Paige, Christopher, Lily and soon-to-be Great Grampy to Paisley, due in January.
At the age of seventeen, Dad began his career as a devoted teacher. His patience, humor and personal connection to his students attributed to his success, and theirs. For 35 years, this was his calling. He truly loved his work. Known around the halls as Papa Smurf, his legacy continued as a much-loved teacher long after his retirement. Dad devoted much time in his retirement years to volunteer work in his community and province, holding a number of executive positions. He was a member of Nova Scotia Teachers Union, Retired Teachers of Nova Scotia, Group of IX Seniors Advisory Council of Nova Scotia, Amherst Farmer’s Market, Knights of Columbus Bowling League, The Bridge Adult Service Center, Directions Council of Nova Scotia, and the Fireside Campers. He was selfless with his time and this is how he served his community. Dad loved sports and games, whether he was coaching, watching or playing. You may have found Dad fishing on a bank, wrapped up in a washer toss tournament, snow blowing a neighbor’s driveway, or exercising his craftsmanship in his shop. He was most comfortable with a kid on each knee, sitting at the campfire, surrounded by loved ones. Dad’s ultimate passion was his family.
A funeral service in celebration of Dad’s life will be held Tuesday, November 28th, at 3:30 PM, at the First Baptist Church in Amherst, 90 Victoria Street East, with Rev. Don Miller officiating.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to The Bridge Adult Service Center or the family humbly requests that you take some time to volunteer in your community and remember our Dad’s life’s work.
Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of Campbell’s Funeral Home Amherst.
Online condolences can be made to the family via www.campbellsamherst.ca, or by visiting the Funeral Home Facebook page.
