PARDOE, Linda Kent
Sam was born in New Harbour, Nfld., the son of Samuel and Lillian Prosser. He was a devoted member of St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, North Sydney. He is survived by his daughter, Shirley (Alec) Curtis; two grandchildren, Michael (Carmen) and Heather (Andrew) and three great-grandchildren, Ashley Olivia, Alexander Samuel and Charlotte Lillianne. Sam is also survived by nephews, Max (Monica) Prosser, Richard (Gertie) Prosser and niece, Donna (Doug) MacDonald as well as two sisters-in-law, Lena James and Dorothy Prosser. Sam was predeceased by his wife, Olive and brothers, Enoch, Charles, Canon Wallace, Frank, Jack and Bernard.
Sam spent his life on the sea, a fisherman, a captain on the Englishtown ferries and a mate on the Great Lakes. He enjoyed woodworking and hooking rugs, showing great imagination and skill in the crafts he created. Sam was a folk artist before folk art became popular. Most of these special works became treasured gifts for others.
