Crowe, Arthur “Art” Archibald – Age 84, of Dartmouth. It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of our loving father, who left us suddenly on January 6, 2017. Born in Little Bass River, he was a son of the late Homer and Susan (Patton) Crowe.
Art enjoyed times spent fishing with his father, and later pleasure fishing with family and friends. His passion was listening to country music, dancing with the love of his life, Iona, and teasingly nicknaming those dear to him. He also enjoyed spending time with his coffee mates in the morning at Dartmouth Superstore. His professional career with public transit spanned from 1953 to 1979 and included working with Bell Buses, Acadian Lines, R. Dooks DTS and City of Dartmouth. He retired from Dartmouth District School Board in 1995 after 16 years of dedicated service.
Art was predeceased by his wife, Iona. Left to grieve are his children, Michael (Kimberlee), Bridgewater; Artena (Russell Webb), Spry Bay; Boyde, Cole Harbour; grandchildren, Krista, Patrick, Lyndsay, Jacob, Myles; great-grandchildren, Tyler, Hayven, Isaac, Keira; brother, John; sister, Evelyn Graham; many nieces, nephews and cousins.
A time of remembrance and memories will be held on Friday, 2-4 p.m., in Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St., Dartmouth. A private burial will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to Salvation Army or Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia.
“We will dance again, ‘Hon’, on Paradise earth”... all my love, Art
