Beaver, Rudolph Hugh "Rudy", Cloverville, Antigonish Co,

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share the loss of Rudolph Hugh Beaver who passed away peacefully at St Martha’s Regional Hospital on May 3 2023 at the age of 83.  Rudy was born to loving parents Hughie Beaver, and Lorna (Monk) Beaver on April 18, 1940 in Murphy's Cove, Halifax County.  

As a young man he started his adult life moving to Toronto, where he worked odd jobs and was to meet his future wife of 60 years, Stella, before returning to the Maritimes and eventually settling in Antigonish where he lived out the remainder of his life.  He found work at Eastern Dairyfoods/Scotsburn where he worked for 40 years. Rudy was an avid sportsman, he loved to hunt and fish, and enjoyed softball in his younger years before transitioning to golf in his older years.  He was a stellar dart player as well and had no trouble telling you so!  He was a kind and thoughtful man but could be stern and strict when the situation called for it.  He loved his life and was a people person.  Playing the guitar and listening to country music was another passion.  

He is survived by his wife Stella (Warren);  children:  Cheryl (Fred Alexander) Pleasant Valley; Travis (Lynn Kennedy), Port Hawkesbury and daughter in law Mary Beaver, Fairmont; grandchildren: Chris (Jodi), Justin, Daniel (Danielle), William, Chelsea, Dalton, Dale, and Landon; great grandchildren Luca and Alec; sister, Lorna Beaver, Tangier.

Rudy was predeceased by his son Marc Beaver; sister, Joan Kennedy;  brothers, Glenn Beaver, and Darryl Beaver.

Visitation will be in C.L Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish on Monday, May8th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.  Funeral in C.L. Curry Funeral Home on Tuesday at 11:00 am with Reverend Tasha Brubaker presiding.  Burial at a later date.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Antigonish Food Bank or St Marthas Regional Hospital, Palliative Care Unit. On line condolences:
