All kinds of unique

Church and an­tique cars.

That sums up my May 27. Af­ter church I stopped in at Rain­forth Park to see the an­tique cars. Sev­eral of the re­alold time cars were parked in front of The Drift­wood Restau­rant.

Then I was off to the Chicken Bar­be­cue in Woodville. This has been tak­ing place for 40 some years and it was the first time I ac­tu­ally at­tended. The line seemed quite long and I thought it would take an hour to get the food, but it only took about 20 min­utes. Af­ter that it was off to the Sco­tian Gold Fam­ily Fun Day. I, of course, was in­ter­ested in hear­ing the band, Witchitaw. There was plenty for the chil­dren to do and I would say they were hav­ing a great time. Thanks to Sco­tian Gold who do this ev­ery year.

Adam Matthew Popowich

- Our hearts are break­ing as we very sadly an­nounce the sud­den death, due to com­pli­ca­tions of pneu­mo­nia, of Adam Matthew Popowich (42), Cam­bridge NS on the morn­ing of May 26, 2018. Born in New Glas­gow on Septem­ber

19, 1975, Adam at­tended New Glas­gow schools, grad­u­at­ing from Dal­housie Univer­sity, and Al­go­nquin Col­lege in Ot­tawa, On­tario. While in On­tario his di­ag­no­sis of Becker Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy was con­firmed. Adam met the love of his life, Chris­tine Bigelow, in 2001 and they moved to Cam­bridge in the An­napo­lis Val­ley, where he worked for the past 15 years as a school li­brar­ian with the An­napo­lis Val­ley Re­gional School Board. They mar­ried in 2003 and their daugh­ter Veron­ica Ju­lia (9) was very much like her daddy and loved lego, Pic­tou County Pizza, silly games and laugh­ing. Adam was quiet, car­ing, and funny, with a quirky sense of hu­mour and the most beau­ti­ful smile any­where. He made the best of his phys­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions and was a lov­ing hus­band, daddy, son, brother, uncle, nephew, grand­son, son in law, brother in law and friend. Be­sides Chris­tine and Veron­ica, Adam leaves his par­ents, Fred and Coreen (O’brien) Popowich New Glas­gow; his big brother, Si­mon (Michelle) Popowich Fred­er­ic­ton NB; grand­mother, Mar­garet Popowich Brant­ford ON; his par­ents-in-law, John and Ch­eryll Bigelow, Kingsport NS; sis­ters-in-law, Dawn (John) Is­nor, Gaspereau NS; Cherisse Bigelow (Richard Yur­diga), Grass­land AB; neph­ews Evan and Ryan Is­nor and Ja­cob Yur­diga. Also griev­ing are aunt, Kathy (Michael) Amp­ing, Pointe Claire PQ; un­cles, Leo (Rose­mary) O’brien, Bramp­ton ON; Kevin (Jackie) O’brien, Pointe Claire PQ; Peter (Diane) Popowich, Guelph ON; Jim (Deb­o­rah) Popowich, Jerseyville ON; cousins, Matthew (Su­san) Popowich, David Popowich and Grif­fin Popowich of On­tario and grand­mother-in-law, Jean Cor­bett, Wolfville NS, and many friends and col­leagues. Adam was pre­de­ceased by his much loved grand­par­ents, Arthur Popowich, Gertrude and Den­nis O’brien. Adam lived life fully, lov­ing his fam­ily and hav­ing the courage to live well in spite of his phys­i­cal prob­lems. His ex­am­ple was a gift to all of us and his mem­ory will in­spire every­one who knew him for a long while to come. Visi­ta­tion will take place on June 8, 2018 from

6 - 8 pm in the White Fam­ily Funeral Home, Kentville, from where a cel­e­bra­tion of life, fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion, will be held on June 9, 2018 at 2 pm with Rev­erend Doc­tor Steven B. Hopper of­fi­ci­at­ing. Fam­ily flow­ers only, by re­quest.
