Wilfred Ervin "Wilf" Carter - 88, Liverpool, passed away on Thursday, November 2, 2023 in Shannex Vimy Court, Bible Hill. Born in Oxford, he was the youngest child of the late William and Mabel (Rushton) Carter.

Wilf sadly lost his dearly loved partner, Betty (Fraser) in May 2023 after 59 years of marriage. He was also predeceased by his siblings and their spouses: Carrie (Ira) Betts, Jean (Norman) McFadden, Ella (Todd) Wilmot, Frank (Anna) Carter, Harold Carter. He is survived by many nieces and nephews.

Wilf began his work life as a typesetter at the Oxford Journal and later worked for newspapers in Ontario and Liverpool. Wilf always enjoyed driving and detailing his vehicles, so it was fitting that he was last employed, for many years, as a chauffeur at  Bowater Mersey in Liverpool. He drove company officials and business associates to and from Halifax Stanfield Airport, local hotels, and meetings. In this capacity he spent many hours over the years getting to know many of the airport staff.

Wilf will be laid to rest beside his "dear Bet" in Oxford.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall - Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. Public messages of condolence may be sent to the family by viewing Wilf’s obituary on-line and selecting "Send A Condolence" at: www.mattatallvarnerfh.com
