FERGUSON, David John
FERGUSON, David-59, passed away suddenly in Pictou on February 9, 2016. He was the son of
the late James B. & Hazel P. (Logan) Ferguson, Pictou. After studying at both Mt Allison and
Saint Mary's Universities, Dave worked with the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and
Nova Scotia Department of Environment, retiring in 2014. His dream, at the young age of 10 of
being a firefighter, was not only accomplished but surpassed as he was an integral part of the
Pictou Fire Department for 30 years and as a NFPA certified firefighter, and was appointed its
Safety Officer in 2000. Dave was dedicated to fulfilling any and all responsibilities in serving
both the community of Firemen and the Citizens of Pictou Town, County, plus the Province of
N.S. He was constantly upgrading his certifications and deservedly stood proudly as a member of
the Town's Volunteer Fire Department, whose members greatly morn his loss together with those
members of its closely affiliated Legion. Dave loved Pictou and the Seacrest area of the former
family summer home (near town).He cherished moments with book in hand at the beach and
coveted nature walks, especially along the seashore with the family dog or his beloved pet (dog)
'Oreo' (who never missed a fire call either!) Dave contributed greatly to the community and
participated in countless volunteer activities over his 59 short years. These included The Pictou
Lobster Carnival, where he held multiple positions during his lifetime. Dave was a member of
the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 16, Pictou and one of Dave's lifetime hobbies was that of
being a Certified Fireworks' Operator since 2010 and he shared his interest with a caucus of
other members across the Maritimes. They too are mourning his loss. Dave was very empathetic,
a person with great integrity, extremely intelligent and a mechanical genius in regards to repairs
to various dysfunctional motors, engines and appliances. After retirement, Dave also very much
enjoyed his work as Manager of the Pictou Hector Marina and will be greatly missed. His
naturally acquired interests and skills regarding ships and boats led to an enviable and highly
respected knowledge by those in the marine field where he was very well regarded. Whatever the
task Dave undertook, he put his heart and soul into it. He could always be counted upon. The job
would not only be accomplished but would be superlative. He epitomized the celebration of life.
He will forever be remembered by his family of firemen and by his own family: sister, Jane
Glen, Victoria, BC; and her daughter, Kimberley; Victoria, B.C.; brother, Jim (Colleen),
St.Margaret's Bay, N.S., sister, Cherry G. Ferguson, Halifax, N.S.; and several cousins. The
funeral will be held at 2:00 PM on Thursday, February 18, 2016 from Pictou United Church,
with Rev. Mary-Beth Moriarity officiating. A ‘Day for Dave’ reception will follow in the Pictou
Legion. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pictou Fire Department, P.O. Box 640,
Pictou or a charity of your choice.
