Tequila Bottle With Man's Ashes & A Request Washes Up On Nova Scotia Beach
Plans are underway to fulfil the wishes of the late Gary Robert Dupuis after the mystery man's ashes washed up on the shores of Cape Breton inside a tequila bottle — its apparent first stop on an attempted world tour.
Norman MacDonald, of West Mabou, said he was collecting trash at the picturesque West Mabou Beach on Wednesday when he came across the 375 millilitre bottle of Sauza Gold Tequila.
Inside was $25 in Canadian bills wrapped around a small note written in blue ink, purportedly from one of Dupuis's children.
The note said Dupuis, born on July 1, 1954, lived recklessly in his younger years but dreamed of travelling the world later in life.
'Buy yourself and Gary a drink'
"His favourite drink was tequila — straight up," said MacDonald, reading the letter aloud during a phone interview on Friday. "If you find him, please take this money, buy yourself and Gary a drink and release him back in the ocean.
