David Wayne Alexander passed away suddenly at Machias Regional Hospital on Feb. 19, 2015. He was born at Welshpool, Campobello Island, NB on May 7, 1940, to Dolly Roselyn (Newman) and Gannett Wells Alexander.
Wayne was a great believer in learning and was self taught in many fields. His interests included physics and engineering and he taught himself much of what he knew. He had exceptional talent and creativity.
Wayne worked for H.W. Welch Ltd. (later Connors Bros.) for many years, working his way up to manager of the Campobello factory. After the factory closed, he worked at Steve Adams' Fabrication shop as a machinist, welder, and fabricator. He also worked on multiple salmon farms, and lastly at Steven Newman's boat building shop. His main hobby was Amateur (Ham) Radio and he had friends and contacts from around the globe. His original call sign was VE1ANJ, which he later changed to VE9ST. He mentored several radio operators on Campobello during the years. Over the years, he won several Ham Radio contests, including the First Place Achievement Award in the Wisconsin QSO Party, and First Place for New Brunswick in the American Radio Relay League International Contest for which he still holds the record.
In his younger years he loved hunting, waterskiing, riding his motorcycle, camping at Pleasant Lake and, of course, singing and playing his guitar. He loved to laugh and have fun with his many friends. He had great pride in his four beloved children and when they all got together there was lots of laughter.
He leaves behind his partner of many years, Beverly Savage, and his children, Patti Alexander-Denne (Morley) of Riverview, NB, Barbara Alexander (Michael Balsor) of Centreville, NS, David Wayne Alexander of Campobello, NB, and Deane Alexander (Nathen MacDonald) of Riverview, NB.

Besides his parents, James and Marion (Richardson), Joseph is predeceased by siblings, Walter, Aldena, Les, Bernard, Richard, and son-in-law, Farren Hanley.
Joe knew from an early age what his career path would be. His love for numbers resulted in him starting his career at the Bank of Nova Scotia and then onto Connors Brothers Limited where he spent 38 years as Paymaster. He often said the best part of the job was the people he worked with and meeting the many employees on his visits through the factories. He enjoyed being outside, taking long walks through his property, clearing woodland, gardening, or checking on his blueberries. Each year he could hardly wait for the berries, with his son at his side.
Even though work took most of his time, he would always find time for his family. He was also involved in church activities at Christ Church Pennfield, early on as Sunday school superintendent, a church warden, treasurer, and a choir member. He did a term as a member of a Board of Directors for the Fundy Health Centre. During his spare time, he was active in the Pennfield Volunteer Fire Department as one of the original members, a level II firefighter, a fire marshall, and also took on the role of treasurer. He enjoyed the sport of curling as well and socializing at the Brunswick Curling Club in which he was a lifetime honourary member and the club treasurer.
A special thank you to Extra-Mural support from Sheri and the staff on the Palliative Care Unit at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Also, a huge thank you to the many family and friends who visited and showed support in the last six months; all of this support truly meant a lot to the family.

NEEDHAM, Roberta Virginia (nee Taylor)

NEEDHAM, Roberta Virginia (nee Taylor)
Jan. 13, 1939 – Valentine’s Day, 2015 – It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Roberta “Robbie” Needham, daughter of Garfield and Elizabeth Taylor of Bocabec, NB. After a long illness, she passed peacefully at home surrounded by her family.
Roberta leaves her husband of 50 years, Michael J. Needham; her children, Elizabeth, Catherine and Richard; her daughter-in-law, Naomi Kono, and son-in-law, Rob Carscadden. From a large family, Roberta leaves four brothers, five sisters, an uncle, four aunts, including Selma Taylor of Barrie, ON and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Roberta also leaves beloved members of the Kowalsky family, particularly Helen and Connie, sisters of her first husband, Glenn.
Roberta devoted much of her life to her family; she especially supported educational opportunities for her children and grandchildren, and for many of her and Michael’s kin.
Roberta was highly practical and had a keen eye for business – the true daughter of a New Brunswick lumberman. Indeed, it was her $5,000 savings that seeded Michael’s entrepreneurial ambitions at the start of their marriage, and it was Roberta’s confident raising of their family that allowed Michael the freedom to fulfill their shared dreams.
Those who know Roberta admired her frankness, determination and courage. Whether studying as an adult to attain her B.A. in English at Glendon College (a labour of love that took 20 years), calming rambunctious children, or battling the challenges of multiple myeloma, the strength of Roberta’s character was clear.
Finally Roberta left us in no doubt as to the question: why was I born? For her, it was her six grandchildren: Oliver, Emma, and Alistair Carscadden, and Musashi, Taka, and Sola Needham. Their love for “Gammy” was deep, her life’s great task and greater reward.
Celebrations of Roberta’s life will be held in New Brunswick and Toronto in the spring. Condolences can be sent to: The Needham Family, 6 Warren Road, Toronto, ON M4V 2R5.
If friends so desire, a donation in Roberta’s memory would be appreciated to the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (Hematology Clinic), Toronto, whose amazing support kept her quality of life high for over a decade longer than expected.
