George "Bush" Adams


George "Bush" Adams
It is with heavy hearts the family of George “Bush” Adams announces his passing on January 15th 2022 at his home in Martins Point, NS, peacefully at the age of 88.

Born in Western Shore he was the son of the late Bruce (Jack) Adams and Charlotte Sawler. George is survived by the love of his life, Ingebjorg Rosvik, Martins Point and her children Christy and Brad and their families, daughters Hope Ernst (Lenny), Maitland; Nicole Adams (Adam),Western Shore; 5 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren along with many nieces and nephews; sisters Peggy Franklyn, Bridgewater and special sister Roxie Bremner, Chester. He was predeceased by his sisters Alice, Nora and Stella and brothers Harry and Peter.

His family, extended family and friends will miss him dearly.

George was born on June 18th 1933 in Western Shore, NS. As a young boy he spent a lot of time on Oak Island with his father who worked as the caretaker of the island. He always had the best stories to tell from his time on the island and was so proud to share them with his family, friends and even the cast and producers of the television show The Curse of Oak Island. He left school early to work on the railroad. He was a man of many trades and talents from picking tobacco in Ontario in his younger years to assisting with the big construction boom in Halifax before returning to Forest Heights Community School in the early 90’s to earn his GED. He was a member of the Western Shore Legion Branch 144 which he had the honour of helping to build and also a member of the Carpenters Union Local 83. George loved to hunt and was a near perfect shot because he didn’t like to waste any bullets. He always enjoyed his deer hunting trips with friends at the camp every season. He loved trout and mackerel fishing too. Later in his life he became quite the artist. He spent a lot of his time drawing and making homemade greeting cards for friends and family.

George will be forever be remembered for his wit, humour and contagious laugh.

His wishes were to be cremated. He did not wish to have a funeral so there will be a celebration of life held on his birthday in June.

Memorial donations can be made to the Western Shore Cemetery Fund.
