Wayne Allison Snider of Riverview, NB passed away at the Moncton Hospital on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at the age of 84. Born in Hillsborough NB he was a son of the late Herbert and LaVangie (Rogers) Snider.
Dad was extremely proud of his family and would talk about them to anyone who would listen and those who wouldn’t. He was also a career military man of 29 years, proud to have served and to wear his medals. He was particularly proud of wearing his blue beret which he earned while serving a peacekeeping tour in the Middle East.
His time in the military was followed by working at Canada Post and then they started DWL, a transportation service where he enjoyed transporting children and care takers back and forth to the Head Start Program.
He was a longstanding member of the Riverview Lions Club, recipient of the Melvin Jones award and the Presidents Certificate. He sat on the board for the Lions Sick Children’s Fund. He was a member of the Riverview Veterans and Armed Forces Association.
We recently discovered that Dad was known as the expert bread slicer at the Lion’s breakfasts! Automobiles were a big part of his life. Many stories started with which car he was driving at the time. He particularly enjoyed touring in his Ford Mustang and volunteering at AMP Motorsport Park.
Survived by his children, Steven Snider (Patty), Kim McIver (David) of Dartmouth, NS, Troy (Paula) of Lower Sackville, NS; eight grandchildren, Patrick (Amy), Shamus, Laurie-Anne (Tim) and Liam Snider, Max (Kathleen) and Spencer McIver, Lauren and Katie Snider; great-grandchildren Sophie and Jessa; brothers, Bernard (late Glendine) Snider, Vaughn (late Lois) all of Hillsborough; sister, Thelma Steeves (Don) of Saint John, NB.
In addition to his parents he was predeceased by his wife, Lornette "Lori" Snider in 2015 and his infant daughter Shelley.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions a celebration of life service will be held at a later date. Interment will be in Fairhaven Memorial Gardens. The family will be hosting a virtual (Zoom) visitation on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 and Thursday, November 26, 2020 from 6:30pm until 8:30pm. A link will be posted on the funeral home website when made available.
Words cannot convey our appreciation of the Moncton Hospital Nurses and Doctors who cared for Dad, they are the Angels who walk among us, in particular Sharon and Mel, Thank you!

It is with broken hearts that the family of Malcolm Brenton Nickerson announces his passing on November 18, 2020. Malcolm passed away peacefully at his home in Rusagonis Station, NB, following a lengthy illness. Born on April 12, 1931, in Forbes Point, NS, he was the son of the late Dexter and Lulu (Butler) Nickerson. He was one of seven siblings. To his friends, he was known as Mac or Nick, and by his family, lovingly called Dad and Grampy.
In Feb 1956, Mac married the love of his life, Kathleen (Kaye) Brothers. The couple was happily married until Kaye’s death in 2018. Mac was a member of the Blackwatch, and upon retirement, was employed by CE at Base Gagetown. Mac enjoyed the outdoors, especially fishing. In his later years he enjoyed spending time with his four-legged companion, Rosie.
Mac will be greatly missed by his girls Karen (Jerry) Graham and Kathy (Gordon) Fredericks; and his sons Mark (Carol), Kevin (Deana), Bruce (Darlene), and Blaine (Deanna). Grampy was especially proud of his 14 grandchildren and his 18 great-grandchildren. Mac is further survived by three siblings, as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.
In addition to his wife of 62 years, Kaye, and his parents, Mac was predeceased by three siblings.
Mac appreciated the love and support he received from his family. A special thank you to his personal support worker, Marilena, for the exceptional care and support offered to both Mac and his family throughout his illness. To Mac’s neighbor Shawn, thank you for the support you provided, and to Katie for helping us through his final days. The family would also like to thank the staff at the DECH and the Oromocto Extramural nursing team. Fulfilling his wish to stay in his home would not have been possible without the support of neighbors, friends, family, and health care professionals. You are all special kinds of heroes, and Mac, as well as the family are blessed by your kindness and care.
There will be no visitation. A Celebration of Mac's life will be held at a later date.
Donations can be made in Mac’s memory to the Oromocto Legion Branch # 93 and the Rusagonis Station Cemetery Fund.

Her biggest joys were her three granddaughters, her new puppy “Kacey” and Harvey’s burgers. She loved spending her summers at the campground with her Pine Cone family. She enjoyed playing cards with her special group of friends, the Toronto Blue Jays, watching the UFC fights, bowling and bingo. She also enjoyed volunteering at St. Vincent de Paul.

Besides her husband, Bud, and her parents, Harold and Loretta Brown, she was predeceased by her brother Gordon Brown and her sister Mary Powers.
Also a special thanks to all of the first responders for their compassion and care.
Arrangements are entrusted to Fundy Funeral Home, 230 Westmorland Road (646-2424). Due to these uncertain times during COVID-19, following cremation funeral services will be announced at a later time. Interment will then take place at Ocean View Memorial Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the charity of the donor’s choice, which would be appreciated by her family.
