SMITH, Anthony “Tony” Bruce Franklin – 67, Riverport, NS died on May 12, 2022.
Tony was the son of the late R. Gordon and Lois M. (Lodge) Smith.

Tony spent the early portion of his working life as an automotive technician and as a service manager. He changed careers and dedicated 25+ years as a registered nurse, working primarily in the South Shore Regional Hospital’s Mental Health & Addictions unit. He also was a volunteer first responder with the Riverport Volunteer Fire Department. Tony’s passion was sailing. To be on the water was his solace.
