Merle Edward Kaulback

Celebration of Life

A celebration of the life of Merle Kaulback will be held on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Blockhouse Fire Hall. Family and friends are invited to attend.

Loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, passed away at home in Blockhouse, Lunenburg County, on April 30, 2022, at the age of 87. Born on April 15, 1935, in Cornwall, he was the younger son of Willis and Ruth (Nauss) Kaulback.

Merle is survived by his beloved wife of almost 68 years, Nancy, daughter Debbie (Dave) of Greenville, South Carolina, son Jeff (Marilyn) of Bridgewater, daughter Lisa (Alan) of Oakhill, sister-in-law Carolyn of Bridgewater, grandchildren Erica, Michael, Justin, Sarah, Alan and Kim, and eight great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, brother Curtis and son-in-law Steve.

Merle was above all a family man. He loved Nancy, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with his whole heart.

He was also a man who loved his community. After spending time as a young man in Goose Bay, Labrador, he and Nancy built their home in Blockhouse where they lived until his death. He managed Hawboldt Industries in Chester for many years and, following his retirement, served nearly a decade on Lunenburg Municipal Council. Merle was a long-time active member of Trinity United Church in Mahone Bay and a proud honourary member of the Blockhouse Fire Department where he was a former fire chief of many years.

Merle was also a man who loved fun and good times. He had a wonderful sense of humour and we will miss the quick wink that often accompanied it. Over the years, he enjoyed golf, travel, woodworking, fishing, watching his Blue Jays and Maple Leafs, music jams and camping with wonderful friends.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the South Shore Regional Hospital, Blockhouse Fire Department, Trinity United Church or a charity of your choice.
