Angus Lorie Davidson
Angus Lorie Davidson – 84, of Wolfville, Kings County passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Saturday, May 29, 2021, at home. Born in Gaspereau, he was a son of the late Rodney and Vera (Coldwell) Davidson. Angus was a hard worker all his life; he believed you needed to work hard for what you wanted. His main goal in life was to provide for his family, which he did every day. He was a mason with Carey Bros, Avonport for over 25 years. When he wasn’t working, he took great pride in his home which he built himself, working in the yard and tending to his vegetable garden. He loved camping, enjoyed family gatherings and vacations, PEI being one of his favorite locations. He enjoyed playing his guitar and entertained everyone at family gatherings. In his younger years, he participated in many tug-of-wars with his brothers and was well known for his strength. In his later years, he enjoyed watching hockey and baseball with his son Bruce and was a true Toronto Maple Leaf’s fan. Angus was respected by all who knew him and will be deeply missed, especially by his wife Bessie and family who loved him dearly.
Angus is survived by his wife, Bessie Melvina (Butler) Davidson, who was the love of his life and for whom he did anything and everything for; sons, Angus Bruce of Gaspereau, Shawn Arthur of Gaspereau, Robert Edward of Wolfville; daughters, Cindy (Andrew) Thorpe of Kentville, Tina (Ray) Gallant of Sackville, Cathy (Justin) Spencer of New Minas; granddaughter, Nicole Davidson of Edmonton, Alberta whom he raised as a daughter and shared a special bond; grandchildren, Patricia, Dylan, Kelly, BJ, Robbie, Alyssa, Liam, Jessica, Brittany, Rocky, Joy, Doug, Justin; several great and great-great grandchildren; nieces and nephews.
