DeWolfe, Albert Alfred Age 91 of Arichat. It is with sadness, that we announce the passing of Albert Alfred DeWolfe of Arichat that occurred at the Inverary Manor in Inverness on December 19, 2019. Born on August 30, 1928 in Arichat, he was the son of the late Alfred and Cecile (Landry) DeWolfe.

He worked part-time as a Stevedore at Stora Forest Industries in Point Tupper for over 30 years. In addition, he was a door-to-door fish salesman and travelled across Richmond and Inverness Counties. He worked several 18-20 hour days. Albert enjoyed raising sheep, harvesting vegetables in his garden, and being close to the ocean. He liked camping with his late wife and playing a good game of 45 or Rummy 500. For those who knew him well, he took pleasure in telling or hearing a good joke and occasionally playing a prank.
