teens and through the years was owner and master of various tug boats in
this port and was well 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 Brunswick and Nova Scotia ports. A
month ago he came home on sick leave. Surviving besides his parents, are
