Obituary for Larry "Brubs" Chapman

CHAPMAN, Larry (Brubs) Norman, 77, Dartmouth, NS, passed away July 31, 2022. Born in Amherst, NS, he was the son of the late Norman and Rhoda (Stiles) Chapman of Yarmouth, NS.
Larry graduated Queen Elizabeth High School in 1963, and went on to study Electronics and Munitions with RCAF. Starting in 1965, Larry used his velvety voice as a radio announcer for many years, even hosting the Larry Chapman Show. He enjoyed capturing photos of both places and people (no posing please!) with some of his work published. Larry also enjoyed the ocean and boating. When he was able, he had a dingy he would take around Dartmouth Harbour. In later years, he was a regular at the local library, computing, reading and writing.
Surviving are his daughters, Stacey Chapman, Kirkland, WA and Angela Kempin, Montreal, PQ; grandchildren, Georgia, Cyrus and Charlotte Chapman Pontiff, Kirkland, WA. Larry also leaves behind his sisters, Linda (Eric) Moore, Maccan, NS; Dr. Liese (Malcolm) Coulter, Victoria, BC and Natalie Landry, Yarmouth, NS, as well as many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Larry was also pre-deceased by his sister, Nancy Jane Chapman, Yarmouth, NS.
