Obituary for Peter C. Norwood
NORWOOD, Peter C.
1950 - 2018. Peter passed away suddenly at home in West Petpeswick, Friday, November 30th. He was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by his wife, Andree Desrosiers; her son, Justin (Lisa) and their children Cole and Calla; his daughter, Jessica Hindes (Will) and their children Kaydence, Bella and Hudson, Cochrane, Alta.; his brother Toby (Carol Ann)and their children Erin (Morris) and Carlisle; and his nephew, Jack Lawrence. He was predeceased by his parents, Carlisle and Salley (MacKeen) Norwood; and his sister, Kate Lawrence. Peter was a good man, a gentle soul and generous beyond measure. He was an adventurer who loved challenge, whether a storm at sea or slogging through the mudflats because he lost track of the tides! The sea was his home, from living on the Northwest Arm to his home on the inlet he swore he would never leave. He was a humble man of few words who wanted "no fuss" at his passing. To honor his wishes, there will be no funeral service. As an "old salt" he wanted nothing more than his cremated remains buried at sea. We will gather "out home" next summer, raise a glass to his memory, share stories of his derring-do and commit his ashes to the sea he loved. A loyal friend and family man, Peter was happiest in his role as "Poppy" to his five grandchildren. Donations in Peter's name can be made to: Sail Able Nova Scotia, 702-650 Wash Mill Lake Dr., Halifax, NS B3S 0H8 or charity of choice. Online condolences can be made at: www.donaldkwalker.ca
