OMI o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-11-11 published
BOLGER, Captain Patrick N.
Died peacefully at home in Perth, Ontario on November 9th, in his 98th year. A native of New Ross, Co. Wexford, Ireland, Pat began his career as an apprentice deck officer with Watts Watts Steamship Company with which he remained until 1943 when he accepted employment with the Park Steamship Company. He was one of the youngest ship masters to be given a command in the British Merchant Navy. He served throughout the Second World War in the Merchant Navy and acted as commodore on voyages to Murmansk and Archangel in Northern Russia to ensure the provision of supplies to the Soviet people and military. He also served in the campaign to liberate Italy during the invasion of Sicily. Pat was a long-time employee of McLean Kennedy Inc., having commenced his career ashore as marine superintendent in 1944 and retiring as Vice-President - Operations. He also was intimately involved in the establishment of the Brunterm Container Terminal in Saint John, New Brunswick and at the time of his retirement was a Vice-president and director of Brunterm. Pat will be remembered for his deep commitment to the Merchant Navy and the steamship industry in general and his devotion to several charitable organizations, including Mariners' House of Montreal, the successor of the Catholic Sailors Club, which he served as President in 1965-67. Pat was predeceased by his one and only true love to whom he was devoted, Helen Bruce ORR and will be missed tremendously by his loving children Aidan (Georgette), Honor, Jeremy (Wendy) and Christopher (Lorraine) and his adoring grandchildren Samantha, Ashley, Michael and Claire.
