Fred Nolan also has a relatively small appearance on the show, but he is just as passionate about treasure hunters as everyone else. Like Dan Blankenship, he lived a long, fulfilling life and died at the age of 89, according to his obituary. He is survived by his wife Ora, son Thomas, brother Frank, three nieces, one nephew and two nieces.
According to 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 has in common with Blankenship is his fascination with the history and myths surrounding Oak Island. He first got the treasure hunt bug when he started studying maps of Spain, and he spent nearly five decades searching the island with other treasure hunters. He may not spend a lot of time in front of the camera, but he’s an invaluable consultant behind the scenes.
