POTHIER, Edward Pierre – age 81, Lower Wedgeport, Yarmouth Co., passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 23, 2018 in Yarmouth Regional Hospital. Born January 31, 1937 in Wedgeport, he was a son of the late Tim and Anita (Boudreau) Pothier. Edward will be remembered as a very hard worker, having worked primarily as a carpenter, but also as a boat builder, fisherman and truck driver.

He is survived by his common-law partner, Patricia Comeau, as well as by his sons, Obie (Linda) Pothier, Steve (Liz) Pothier, both of New London, CT; Ed (Tara) Pothier, Wedgeport; Dave (Shaunna) Pothier, Barrington and Dennis (Cynthia) Pothier, Cape Sable Island, as well as by 11 grandchildren, eight great grandchildren and a sister, Phyllis (Louis) Cottreau, Wedgeport. Aside from his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Florence “Flossie” (Richard) Pothier and by sisters, Anne Creaser and Margaret Comeau. Arrangements have been entrusted to H.M. Huskilson’s Funeral Home and Crematorium, Yarmouth. A private service will take place on Thursday, January 3, 2019 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Wedgeport with interment in the parish cemetery. The family will continue to celebrate Edward’s life with a reception at the Royal Canadian Legion, Wedgeport, following the service.
