PIC­TOU – It is with great sad­ness and heavy heart that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Arthur Ernest Dal­ton. Arthur was the son of Freda Joan (Langille) Dal­ton and Charles Ernest Dal­ton. Arthur was born on Au­gust 4, 1947 in Pic­tou where he spent all of his life. He was born with health prob­lems which both­ered him through­out his life. As a young boy and in youth he loved to swim and row his boat, with his dog ‘Lad­die’ in the back seat, to the Mile Bridge and around the har­bour. As he got older, he took a great in­ter­est in fish­ing off the wharf in Pic­tou. He would al­ways catch fish when no one else could. He also loved his col­lec­tion of bag pipe mu­sic which he would sit and lis­ten to of­ten. He would even prac­tice with the Heather bells years ago (drum­ming). As he got older in years he was stricken with di­a­betes and this ail­ment took the use of his legs, so he was con­fined to a wheel­chair and en­tered the Shire town Nurs­ing Home in 2004 where he passed away on Jan­uary 1, 2019. Cre­ma­tion has taken place. There will be no visi­ta­tion. Grave­side Com­mit­tal Ser­vice will take place in St. James Ceme­tery (next to his par­ents) will be an­nounced at a later date. A big thank you goes out to all the staff and res­i­dents of Shire town Nurs­ing Home and fur baby, Bella, with­out all your love, sup­port and ded­i­ca­tion, we would not have got through this dif­fi­cult time. www.mclaren­fu­neral. ca
