Born in New Glasgow, he was a son of the late Chester Fulton and Annie Elizabeth (Turner) Quinn. In earlier years, Bert had been employed with several grocers. Following, he was a spray painter with Pictou Industries for many years. After retirement, he became a used car salesman, a job he thoroughly enjoyed.

He will be dearly missed by those he loved.
