Obituary of Andrew Powter

With sadness, we share that Andrew Powter died on February 3, 2022. Andrew lived his life to the fullest, never saying no to an adventure. He had a long and meaningful career as a Heritage Conservation Architect and leaves his mark on many International and Canadian Historic Sites. He dove into everything he became involved with, including World Heritage Sites (Vimy Ridge and Kizhi) and small local projects, always inspired by his strong feelings about Conservation Heritage, wood preservation, sustainability and historical integrity. Andrew (Andy to his grandchildren) had many hobbies that he also immersed himself in. These included among others, cooking, water colours, playing the violin, model railroading, raising chickens, wooden boats, and old cars. He was an insatiable reader, the keeper of many trivia facts and was often seen driving his 1949 ½ ton Studebaker Truck. Andrew lived and travelled all over the world including the Yukon to Newfoundland, Europe, Britain, Vietnam, Russia, Cuba, Papua New Guinea and hiking the Camino de Santiago. However, Andrew’s home in Hampton, Nova Scotia was where his heart was. With his dogs Molly, Ginger and Nookie, he spent many happy years gardening, restoring his old house and cars, and doing what he loved. He will be missed by his children, Tess (Paul), Seth (Andrea) and Maggie (Devin), his grandchildren, Callum, Silas, Gabe, Morgan, Oliver, Sally, Mikah and Ezra and his dear friend, Wendy Courtice. He will also be missed by his dogs, Ginger and Nookie.
