GOWER, Franklin Hoarce - Died Thursday, September 27, 2007, in Tideview Terrace, Digby, with his family by his side. Born September 12, 1926, in Westport, he was a son of the late Wallace and Alma (OUTHOUSE) GOWER. He was a fisherman for 27 years. In 1967 he became employed with the Canadian Coast Guard in Westport, where he worked until his retirement in 1990. Having served with the Canadian Army (Special Forces) during the Korean War (1952 and 1953), he was awarded The Korean War Medal, The Voluntary Service Medal, The United Nations Medal and the Korean Ambassador for Peace Medal, with plaque. He also received The Commissioner's Commendation from the Coast Guard for his heroic efforts in helping to save the lives of W. Vallis and B. MacKenzie. During his retirement years, Dad loved to fish for mackerel off the Digby wharf, where he enjoyed socializing with the fishermen and tourists. Dad was a great storyteller and had a sharp and clear mind for remembering details and people's names and any history connected with the Island. He could always make you laugh with his quick wit and sense of humour. He will be remembered by many for his love of dancing, which he did on a regular basis at the Fish and Game for many years, right up until he was 75 years old. His presence in our family will truly be missed. Surviving are his ex-wife, Helena (DAKIN) GOWER, and his children, Veronica (Gerald) HOWLETT, Kennetcook; Michael (Dixie) GOWER, Cumberland Bay, N.B.; Angela (Dwight) OUTHOUSE, East Ferry; Wendy (Gerald) READ, Hebbville; Natalie (Bruce) ISLES, Bear River; Barry GOWER, Chilliwack, B.C.

N.B., 13 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren, and many, many nieces and nephews. An eighth great- grandchild is expected in a few weeks. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by brothers, Murray and Fulton, and sisters, Ruby and Alyda. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Jayne's Funeral Home, Digby, and a ceremony to spread his ashes on the water will take place in Westport on October 6. No flowers by request. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory to the Lung Association of Nova Scotia or to Tideview Terrace. "Not in the churchyard shall he sleep, Amid the silent gloom; His home was on the mighty deep, And there shall be his tomb. He loved his own bright, deep blue sea; O'er it he loved to roam; And now his winding sheet shall be That same bright ocean's foam. No village bell shall toll for him It's mournful, solemn dirge; The winds shall chant a requiem To him beneath the surge." (Author Unknown, but quoted by Joshua Slocum)
