Lovitt Clyde Theriault – Our long sad goodbye to Lovitt Theriault concluded April 21, 2011, at Tideview Terrace, Digby, where he has resided for over two years, his ‘home away from home’. Lovitt was born in East Ferry on May 19, 1918, thus his life ended just one month before his 93rd birthday. His entire adult life was spent in Tiddville with his one and only love, Mary (Stanton), who pre-deceased him in 2006. He is survived by his three daughters, Sheila Theriault, Janet (Bruce) Coles, and Elizabeth (Gary) Morrison. His four grandchildren were a blessing to him and a source of pleasure. He taught them many things. Dr. Chad (Jodi) Coles, Shari (Heath) Foley, Jeremiah (Sherri Diacon) Morrison and Jessica Morrison and Cara Brendzy will always remember him fondly. Great-grandchildren Chloe Coles, Madison Foley, Rylan Morrison and Olivia Brendzy were reasons for Lovitt to smile in his declining years. Lovitt is survived by his closest friend and brother, Clark (Thelma), and sisters, Rosalind, Lillian and Marilyn. Lovitt’s parents, Herman and Jessie (Lewis), passed away in the 1950s. Lovitt was predeceased by his sisters, Lennie, Evelyn, Dorothy, Freda and Gwendolyn (in infancy); and brothers, Franklin and Lloyd. So many adjectives come to mind to describe this special ‘gentle’ man. He led by his shining example of strength of character, selfless, devoted to his church and community, generous, intelligent, and definitely a forward thinker, always planning his next project. We’ll never forget his sense of humour. One of his best abilities was his capacity to love. Lots of people miss that point in life. “You have to give love in order to get love in return,” so Dad has many friends. They will miss him and remember him as having made this world a better place. Lovitt’s Tideview family was special to him and he felt loved there, even though he didn’t have the words to express his feelings. Heartfelt thanks to all of those who cared for him. Funeral service took place Monday, April 25, 2011 and interment was at East Ferry Cemetery. In memory of Lovitt, donations to CanLyme.org would be appreciated by the family to further research in Lyme disease, or to a charity of choice.
