Death – The Curse Of Oak Island Actors You May Not Know Passed Away

Death – Obituary

Fred Nolan also had a fairly minimal presence on the show, but he was just as passionate of a treasure hunter as anybody else. Like Dan Blankenship, he lived a long, full life and passed away at the ripe old age of 89, according to his obituary. He was survived by his wife Ora, his son Thomas, his brother Frank, three nieces, a nephew, and two granddaughters.

As per Nolan’s obituary, he was a professional land surveyor and one of the first professional surveyors in all of Nova Scotia at the time. Another thing he had in common with Blankenship was his fascination with the history and myths surrounding Oak Island. He first got bit by the treasure hunting bug when he started studying Spanish maps, and he spent nearly five decades prospecting the island alongside other treasure hunters. He may not have spent a whole lot of time in front of the camera, but he was an invaluable consultant behind the scenes.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
