He was an active member of Stella Maris Parish, Inverness, N.S. Buppy enjoyed his early morning visits to the Coal Miners Café; where he met his coffee buddies to discuss the daily news of the town. He always loved talking to his friends and family and entertaining them with his stories and jokes. Buppy could be found almost daily at Ivan's Store to get his stash of scratch tickets which gave him great pleasure. Special thanks to Dr. Belen and Dr. Lok who cared for Buppy for many years. Also thanks to the Inverness Palliative Care for their assistance in his time of need.
