Sciences Centre, with his daughters by his side. Born March 14, 1929, Walter was a son of the late Vance and Sinar 
(Gallagher) Barteaux. Most of Cap's career was spent at sea as a marine engineer, sailing on the Great Lakes and later 
between Bar Harbour, Me., and Yarmouth, N.S., on the MV Bluenose, and Cape Tormentine, N.B., and Borden, P.E.I., on various 
Marine Atlantic vessels. He was the Chief Engineer of the Holiday Island at the time he retired. Walter married the love of 
his life, Harriett (Taylor), in 1960 and, after living in Halifax and Moncton, they settled in Advocate Harbour in 1968.

Brittany and Bradley, Halifax; Nancy Barteaux, husband Eric Durnford, Halifax, and grandson Gregory Walter Spicer, Alberta;

wife Erika, Gimli, Man., and by his many nieces and nephews who loved their Uncle Cap. Walter was predeceased by his sister,

Taylor and wife Ellen, and to Elaine Laing (Taylor) and husband Graham, both deceased, and his nieces and nephews on the 
Taylor side. He was a loving presence in so many lives and he had many wonderful friends. He had a wonderful wit and sense of 
good natured mischief. He was a spectacular cook and it brought him so much joy to cook for his friends and family. No one 
will be able to top his Christmas turkey. Walter died in the Palliative Care Unit at the VG Site, QEII, and we cannot begin

BEAUCHAMP, Joseph Patrick "Pat" - It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Joseph Patrick "Pat" Beauchamp on July 4, 2006, in the Halifax Infirmary following a lengthy illness. Born on April 22, 1950, Pat was the first child of Rose and the late Raymond Beauchamp of Dartmouth. Pat will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his sons, John (Christel Higgs) and Marc; their mother, Sandra Mathies and grandmother Helen Mathies; his sister, Joanne, and brothers, Ron (Judy Millett) and Paul (Cora Lee Murrin-Beauchamp); his niece, Michelle, and nephews, Nicholas, Sean and Adam. Pat grew up in Dartmouth, attending Prince Andrew High School and playing for the football team. Incredibly well-read as a young man and keen to explore the world around him, one could find Pat hitchhiking across the country one year and traveling to Ireland the next. Talented with his hands and eager to test himself creatively, Pat began what would prove to be a long and satisfying career in the arts. His love of adventure led him to work for a stretch with the traveling Neptune Theatre. He took great joy in his work as a seasoned craftsman and went on to work at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, a job that he treasured for over 20 years and only left due to his health. Presenting the exhibits of many world-renowned artists to our community, Pat also took care to support the efforts of local artists and cherished the works he acquired over the years. Although Pat's illness limited his abilities recently, he would still enjoy regular visits to his favourite Halifax landmarks, including Atlantic News, AGNS, Taz Records and the Wooden Monkey, where friends showed him great kindness. Pat was adored by those who knew him for his quick wit, his deep commitment to family and friends, and his fabulous sense of humour. A great lover of music, art, literature and cuisine, Pat was a wonderful conversationalist and gifted storyteller. Regaling anyone within earshot with wonderful jokes and tales, Pat always left a room smiling. When introducing someone he always began with "this is my friend", and in that phrase he was always genuine. He was one of the kindest, most gentle souls anyone had the pleasure of meeting, and he will be missed by many. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 8, in St. Thomas More Parish in Dartmouth. A reception will follow. Arrangements will be attended to by Dartmouth Funeral Home.
