David Coldwell
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our
beloved husband, father and brother, David Bruce Coldwell, 80, of
Gaspereau, Kings County, on Thursday, June 14, 2018 in the Valley
Regional Hospital, Kentville. David died an unexpected and
sudden death. Born on March 3, 1938 in Wolfville, he was a son of the
late Bruce and Alice (Eldridge) Coldwell. He was a quiet and
gentle man with a mischievous sense of humor. As a young
boy, he marveled at WWII aircraft roaring above his home.
Such fascination initiated his love of creating model airplanes with
impeccable accuracy. This also helped lay the foundation to
his 38 year career as a model maker with the Nova Scotia Museum of
Natural History. Museum staff congregated in his room to share laughs
and questionable lunches made on the hot plate. Many aspiring model
makers, young and old, benefitted from his mentorship. Patience, a
passion for the natural world and creating models of just about
anything were some of David’s greatest attributes.
He appreciated, valued and was kind to “all creatures great
and small” and passed these traits to his children.
It wasn’t out of character for him to rescue a moth, deer
mouse, feral cat or a crow, to name a few. He had a soft
spot for animals, especially cats. Wherever he was and
whatever he was doing, he considered the Gaspereau Valley his home,
his serenity. He is survived by his wife, Joan (MacDonald); daughters,
Jane Coldwell, New Minas; Karen (Hedley “Newt”)
Newton, New Ross; son, Gregory (Rachel) Coldwell, Toronto; their
mother, Sheila Riley, Torbrook; sisters, Ruth (Bob) Morse, Pictou;
Sandra Coldwell, Coldbrook and brother, Iain (Paul Keddy) Coldwell,
Kentville. Besides his parents, David was predeceased by his brother,
Lynnwood. Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation, by
request. The funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday,
June 30, 2018 in the Gaspereau Baptist Church, followed by a reception
at the Gaspereau Community Hall. Private family burial will take place
in the Gaspereau Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory may
be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Valley WAAG Animal
Shelter, 12-112 Front Street, Wolfville or to the charity of your
choice. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family
Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville.
