It is with sadness and much love that we announce the peaceful passing of Albert George Hewey of Bear River at the age of 93, on August 21, 2022 surrounded by family. Born September 24, 1928, in East Victory, he was the son of the late Andum and Mildred (Kaulback) Hewey.
Albert met the love of his life, Gloria, in Hamilton, Ontario and got married on September 14th, 1956. They resided there for 24 years before returning home to Nova Scotia. Albert had a long and successful career of over 30 years with the Ontario Provincial Police and Department of Highways. Following which, he enjoyed serving as a member of the kitchen staff at HMCS CFB Cornwallis.
