Memorial service held for Petty Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative founder Tom Best

Nearly four months after his passing, family and friends of Petty Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative founder Tom Best honoured his life and legacy Saturday, amid the coronavirus pandemic. Best passed away on March 31 after a battle with cancer. He was 74. After a memorial service, Best’s brother Reg carried his ashes down Southside Road from St. George’s Anglican Church to the co-operative, which Best helped establish. His obituary describes him as a “fiercely proud inshore fish harvester who dedicated his life’s work to advocating for sustainable fisheries and communities.”  >click to read< 17:29
