Saturday, February 6, 2021, at 2 P.M. from the Yarmouth Wesleyan Church

ANTHONY, Arthur "Blaine" - age 68, of Dayton, Yarmouth Co., N.S. passed away peacefully on January 3, 2021 in the Yarmouth Regional Hospital with his loving family by his side. Born in Yarmouth on February 23, 1952, he was a son of the late Robert “Bob” and Emily Anthony. Blaine was best known for being an owner and operator of Dayton Fruit and Vegetable Stand for over 48 years. Blaine grew up in Chebogue working on the family farm and building the H. V. Anthony greenhouses with his family. As the business grew, Blaine made plant deliveries all across the province. He was a member of the Central Chebogue United Baptist Church, 4-H, and the Boy Scouts. At various times, Blaine worked for Cook’s Dairy, on the Prince of Fundy as a cook, and for Marine Colloids. Whatever Blaine’s job, he did it wholeheartedly and he will be greatly missed not only by his family, but by his co-workers, suppliers, and customers. Blaine was generous, community-minded, and incredibly passionate about the Special Olympics and the local food bank. He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Stella (Murphy); son, Jeff Anthony; sister, Sharon Anthony; and brother, Leland Anthony. Blaine is also survived by many brothers and sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces, and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his son, Ryan and brother, Wendel.

A celebration of Blaine's life is tentatively set for Saturday, February 6, 2021, at 2 P.M. from the Yarmouth Wesleyan Church with Rev. A.D "Bill" Newell and Rev. David Hockley officiating. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, priority seating will be given to family and co-workers. The service will be Livestreamed on Sweeny's Funeral Home Facebook page. Family flowers only. Donations in Blaine's memory may be made to the Special Olympics, the Yarmouth Food Bank, or the Gilles Boudreau & Friends Cancer Help Fund. The family would like to thank those who have reached out with their condolences and have shared their memories of Blaine with us. Online condolences may be sent to, or you may sign the guestbook online at

The family would like to thank all the Doctors and Nurses that provided kind and compassionate care to Blaine over the past several years. Your kindness was greatly appreciated.

I was so sorry to learn of Blaine’s passing. Cannot imagine now going into “Anthony’s” (as it was known as in my family) without him dropping everything to chat with a huge grin. Never left the place without the day made brighter. Of course the shenanigans my dad would pull whenever we stopped there would leave poor Blaine and Sharon shaking their heads. Not sure how the photo Dad took of them “posing” out front for the Yarmouth book ever got done there was so much laughter and silly sarcastic comments going on. Blaine’s incredible hard work and dedication to the business over the years has always been admired, and to run the business with such a gregarious personality will be sorely missed. Again, my condolences to Stella, Jeff, Sharon, Leland and the rest of the family.

It is very sad indeed, we at GLO Estate will miss Blaine immensely. He always had time for you, no matter how busy, and there was always that smile full of compassion and warmth. He truly loved his community, valued his costumers, giving and expecting nothing in return - here try an apple, take some carrots home - he was one of a kind. We will miss you Blaine, may peace be with you and comfort your family in their time of need. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Stella, Jeff, Leland, and Sharon, may you be each others strength.

Our thoughts have been with Stella and Jeff, Sharon and Leland and all the Anthony families. We have been so sorry for your loss. Blaine's heart was always with Stella and his family, but he cared for everyone, and was loved by all who knew him. We have many fond memories of visits to Aunt Emily's and Uncle Bob's, and our trips always ended at the Dayton Fruit and Vegetable Stand to see Blaine and Sharon. When we would get back home to Newport Corner, we would find more fruit and vegetables in our car, then what we had actually bought. Another example of the Anthony trait of kindness! Blaine will be dearly missed and will be remembered with utmost respect . Our condolences to you all. Love, Connie and Buddy
