Theriault, Arthur Joseph "Art", age 83 of Antigonish passed away on June 30, 2022, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Merland, Antigonish County, he was the son of the late Frank and Rita (Doyle) Theriault.

Losing his wife, Betty, of 56 years this past May, he was eager to be by her side again. Part of the Nova Scotia Insulators Union, you could not find a harder worker on the job. He was a dear friend of everyone in the Maryvale community, especially enjoying his trips to the Maple Lodge camp on the mountain with the guys. If Art wasn’t home, you could usually find him watching for his next deer or playing Auction 45’s at card plays. A volunteer with the 4 Valleys Fire Department, he received an honorary 25 year service award. Art was a very generous man who would be the first to help a friend or neighbour that needed a hand.

He is survived by his children, Sheila (Greg) MacDonnell, Dartmouth; Kevin (April), Antigonish; Nancy (Robert) Sheehan, Merigomish; Angie (Lloyd) Lynch, Ketch Harbour; Matthew (Kimberly), Antigonish; grandchildren, Andrew, Mallory, Laura, Olivia, Daniel, Kristy Ann, Rebecca, Tyler, Rebecca, Samuel, Abigail, Bria and Cohen; and great grandchild Rachel. Arthur is survived by brothers Johnny and Clarence; and sisters, Lillian, Ann and Mary.

Predeceased by his loving wife of 56 years, Betty; son, Alfred; sisters, Hazel, Mabel, and Sally.

Cremation has taken place.  Funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, July 6, 2022 at 10:00am in St. Mary’s Church, Maryvale, Reverend Andrew Boyd presiding.  Burial in the parish cemetery.

In Memoriam, donations to St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Foundation are greatly appreciated.

Special thanks to the St. Martha’s Regional Hospital for the ongoing care and support they have provided over the years, Art loved to joke with the many nurses and doctors he grew close to. Also great appreciation to Dr. Cudmore who went above and beyond as his family physician, the family especially appreciates you being there with us these past few months.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of C.L. Curry Funeral Home, Antigonish.  Online condolences:
