Weldon Rae Tupper

1940-2021

Weldon Rae Tupper

February 24, 1940 – March 3, 2021

Weldon Rae Tupper slipped quietly into eternity at his home in his beloved community of Scott’s Bay, surrounded by his family. He was the son of Elmer and Gertrude (Frail) Tupper. He demonstrated a deep and quiet faith and held himself to high moral standards. "A good name is more desirable than great riches." – Proverbs 22:1 was his motto. He was passionate about socializing with "the Boys at the shop" where campers and devoted friends gathered to pass the time-of-day debating, chatting and playing crokinole and card games. He was a talented commercial artist, an auto salesperson for Milne’s, Evangeline Motors, Volvo, and a maintenance carpenter for the King County School Board, known as "Tup" with his partner "Irv". Even though he struggled with chronic health issues, his positive attitude was "I could be worse". He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Althea (Parker); daughters, Leah (Brent) Tupper-Bardell, Port Williams; Julia (Jeff) Skaling, Canning Mountain; son, Russell "Rusty" (Judy) Tupper, Sheffield Mills; grandchildren, Nathan (Victoria) Haley, Truro; Evan (Gladys) Haley, Kentville; Gabriel (Sarah) Skaling, Saint John, NB; Breanna Skaling, Canning Mountain; Raymond (Amanda) Tupper, Miramichi, NB; Julie (Derek) Moore, Fredericton, NB; step-grandchildren, Brenna (Josh) Edgar, Enfield; Jana (Brandon Myles) Bardell, Kentville; Aaron Bardell, New Minas; Shamus (Maggie) Chapman-Ward, Kentville; great grandchildren, Nora Haley, Hunter Haley, Roza Anderson, Ellie Tupper, Brenne Moore, Bennett Myles; brother, William "Bill" (deceased August 6, 2021) (Olee); nieces, nephews and an extensive number of Frail and Tupper cousins.  Besides his parents, he was predeceased by sister, Elma, in infancy and brother, Donald. In keeping with his wishes, Weldon’s body has been donated to Dalhousie Medical School for the furtherance of medical science. There will be no visitation, by request.  An interment service will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 16, 2024 in the Scott's Bay Cemetery, followed by fellowship and light refreshments in the Union Church of Scott's Bay. Donations in memory may be made to VON – Annapolis Valley.
