It is with great sadness that we the family announce the peaceful passing of Carleton “Monty” Powers at home on March 20, 2018, with his loving family by his side.

During his working life, Monty was a well-renowned meticulous drywaller, and then supervisor with Gaudet’s Building Contractors Limited, Halifax. He loved the simple things; spending time outdoors, hunting, fishing and "GLAMPING."
