WORTH, Allister (Bud)
September 8, 1915 - September 1, 2013
Allister (Bud) Thomas Worth passed away at his home in Pembroke, Ontario on September 1, 2013. He was the son of the late Thomas and Clara (McAllister) Worth of Guysbourough, Nova Scotia. Beloved and devoted husband of Mary Zita (Martin) deceased November 1992. He was the kind and caring father to Brian (Jane), Toronto, Lorraine Tremblay (Ron) Petawawa and Dianne Saunders (Robin) Pembroke. Predeceased by sons Peter November 2007 and Barry (Susan Jennings) June 2011. He was the Grandfather of 8 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Allister is also survived by his sister Evelyn Bryson Guysborough, Nova Scotia. He was predeceased by brothers Gerald, Bernie and Harold. A generous, honest and kind man to the core, he had a sharp mind and keen sense of humour. Through many sufferings and great sorrows, he still maintained his deep devotion to and faith in God. He retired from the Base Engineers at Camp Petawawa in December 1977 after 27 years of service. He was a veteran of WW2 serving in the navy. He would want to thank good friends Mac, Marion and Duffy, Heather and Franny, Flora and Tom for visits and "waves". Since he was house bound, these kind gestures made life much more bearable. To his caregiver Linda, you were indeed a special blessing to him. To Access Nurses Kelli, Nancy and Maureen the great work you do cannot be measured. To nephew Bill Bryson (Trish) you were a very special part of his life as he enjoyed sharing family stories with you. And to our angel here on earth, Sister Mary Harold for all your prayers, phone calls and years of devotion to this family. There will be no visitation. Family and friends are invited to the Celebration of the Funeral Mass on Thursday morning September 5th at 11 o'clock at Our Lady of Lourdes Church Lourdesview Drive, Pembroke, followed by cremation. In lieu of flowers Dad would have been pleased if you could make a donation to The Mission (Ottawa), Covenant House or the SPCA. Arrangements in care of the MURPHY FUNERAL HOME, Pembroke. Condolences, tributes, donations
