known in marine circles. For the past three years he has been the master of
the Irving Oil Tanker "Mollie G.", sailing from Saint John to other New

Surviving besides his parents, are his wife, the former Neima Joyce; two
sons by a former marriage, Charles Tupper, a member of the crew of the oil
tanker on which his father was master; and Nathan, in Parrsboro. Also by a
brother and sister, Charles Tupper in Toronto and Mrs. Stanley Rogers in
