KING, Rupert Angus

The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, June 27, 2011
DARTMOUTH, NS - Rupert Angus King, age 51, co-owner and president of King IT Consulting Ltd., died at the QEII Victoria General hospital on Sunday, June 26, 2011, following a courageous battle with brain cancer. Born at home in a snowstorm on March 15, 1960, in St. John's, Newfoundland, Angus had his own way of doing things right from the start. Parents Linda (Brown) Kilcup and the late Rupert King moved the family to Ottawa in 1964 for better work prospects. Angus graduated from Colonel By High School in 1979. He entered a business program at Ottawa University, but left after a year to work on the oil rigs in northern Alberta and Saskatchewan. In 1982 he returned to school at the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology, where he received a diploma in Business Computer Programming. There he met his soul mate and future wife, Barbara Lynn Hunter from New Glasgow. Angus graduated with honours in 1983 and went on to have a strong IT career. He and Barb joined a consulting company, SHL Systemhouse, and traveled and worked in various locations in the United States before settling in Ottawa.

After his two sons were born, he moved his family to Dartmouth, to be closer to their grandparents and the ocean. Over the course of his career, Angus worked his way up from a junior programmer to a senior technical architect at EDS Systemhouse, senior architect at Maritime Life, and Chief IT Architect at Bell Aliant. In 2008, he started his own IT consulting company and was providing services to the health sector in the Atlantic and other parts of Canada. He loved his latest challenge and was passionate about implementing positive changes to the healthcare systems across the country. He was very grateful for all the support he received from his colleagues and friends during his illness. Angus was a very positive person, with a raw talent for researching and 'thinking outside the box'. He took a very fearless and proactive role in trying to better understand his cancer and treatment options available.

He loved being with his family and especially enjoyed camping and weekends at the family cottage in the summer. His passions in life (besides his wife and children) were driving performance cars and downhill skiing. He taught his children how to ski at a young age and took many ski vacations together over the years. Angus is survived by his wife of 22 years, Barb (Hunter), sons Hunter and Logan, mother and step-father, Linda and Dave Kilcup, Kentville, NS, two sisters, Judy King and Sylvia (Chris) Burton, both of Ottawa, ON, two brothers, John (Laura) King, Ottawa, ON, and David (Monique) King, Dallas, TX, step-mother, Jeane King, Hubbards, NS, two half-sisters, Allison King, Halifax, NS, and Kristina King, Calgary, AB, step-brother, David Kilcup Jr., Ottawa, ON, two step-sisters, Cyndy MacKenzie, Thunder Bay, ON, and Katherine Kurtossy, Ottawa, ON, 7 nieces and 3 nephews. He is predeceased by his father, Rupert King of Hubbards, NS. Visitation will be held on Tues. at 6-8 pm at the Atlantic Funeral Home, Main St., Dartmouth. Funeral services will be held on Wed. at 11 am also at the Atlantic Funeral Home in Dartmouth. Reception to follow in the Atlantic Funeral Home Family Reception Centre.

PARSONS, Arnold Hayward
(January 17, 1921 - June 25, 2011)
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, June 27, 2011
Parsons, Arnold Hayward
passed away peacefully in Ivy Meadows Continuing Care Facility, Beaver Bank on June 25, 2011. Arnold was able to celebrate his milestone 90th birthday on January 17th this year. Born in St. George's, Newfoundland, 1921, Arnold was a son of the late Ernest and Alice Parsons. He came to Nova Scotia as a young man where he met and married Rebecca (Betty) Jollymore.

Arnold was a proud Veteran who loved sharing his remembrances. Arnold was a contractor based in his home in Sackville for many years. He always enjoyed pointing out the homes he built over the years in Halifax, Clayton Park, Bedford, Sackville and Beaver Bank. If you knew Arnold you knew all his stories. Arnold was a talker, but, also an avid listener, as he could tell you all the details about anyone he met and if that person were a "Newfie", he probably could tell you exactly from where they came, and how they might be related to him!

Arnold was an avid fisherman and in the late 70's he was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of building, from scratch, his own Cape Island Boat. This caused quite a stir in his sister and brother-in-laws neighbourhood as he did it in their vacant lot beside their home. At the time they were doing the "ugly property" series in the Daily News Paper and it was named #4. After many phone calls by annoyed neighbours the paper finally was forced to come and get the full story. The day the boat was moved from the lot into the water the headlines read, "Ugly Duckling Hatches A Swan". Eventually he was able to enjoy a wonderful trip to Newfoundland in his "own boat, named "The Rebecca C".

Arnold and Betty were able to spend the last few years of Betty's life together in Ivy Meadows until Betty's death in 2008. There they formed many friendships with staff, fellow clients and their families. The staff became family over the years and Arnold knew all their names and loved to have a good talk with them. Although he was very independent for much of his time, the extraordinary care and support he received, especially at the end, was much appreciated and will always be remembered.

Besides his wife, Betty, he is also predeceased by his parents and brother, George. He is survived by brother, Allan and other relatives in Newfoundland, as well as brother-in-law, Dennis Jollymore (Edna) and nieces and nephews of Betty's family in Nova Scotia. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Atlantic Funeral Home, 125 Sackville Drive, Lower Sackville, where visitation will be 2-4, 7-9 p.m. Monday and a funeral service will be held Tuesday at 1 p.m., Rev. Sandra Hounsell-Drover officiating. Following a reception, burial will take place in St. James Cemetery, Fox Point, where he will rest beside Betty. Donations may be made to St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, 954 Old Sackville Road, Lower Sackville or Friends of Ivy Meadows Residents Society, c/o Treasurer Shirley Burke, 19 Cavalier Drive, Lower Sackville.
