The Cape Breton Post, August 11, 2015
Born In New Harbour Nfld.
Passed in Sydney Mines on: August 9th, 2015

It is with deep sadness that we, the family of Samuel Prosser, 98, announce his death on Sunday, Aug. 9, 2015 at the Miners' Memorial Manor, Sydney Mines. Sam was a devoted and loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a kind and gentle man who always thought of others before himself. He was a loving and caring husband to Olive for 65 years until her death in 2005, remembering her often and looking forward to being with her again.

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.

Visitation will be held Wednesday, Aug. 12th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant St., North Sydney. A service celebrating his life will be held on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 2 p.m. at St. John's Anglican Church, King St., North Sydney with Rev. Debbie Strickland officiating. Burial will follow in Lakeside Cemetery, North Sydney. Memorial donations may be made to St. John's Anglican Church Fund, Miners' Memorial Manor or to a charity of choice.
Rest eternal grant unto him O Lord and let light perpetual shine upon him. Amen.
