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.

My sincerest condolences to the entire Anthony family. I had the privilege to meet Blaine over twenty five years ago, as a supplier. Blaine was an incredible business man with a huge heart, who made the time to get to know you, your family and always had time for a chat. No drive to Dayton was complete without a stop in to visit Blaine and share some laughs. You left your positive mark on many Blaine, you will be truly missed. Susan Foote

I will always remember you Blaine. Your spirit will always be near the store that you loved and the people who loved you....
Blaine made his move to the new life. He is living in the beautiful spirit world now. I will miss seeing you and joking with you, but the kind acts and the good words you've spread, never get forgotten. Each time I get in your old car I remember you. You have earned the respect of many and the love of those who had the pleasure of meeting you. I will miss seeing your face but I will always feel your spirit. May your new adventures be as great as the ones you had with us on earth. Your family will miss you, but you will never be too far from all of them or any of us. Wish the whole family comfort and I believe that Blain is alive, with us, in soul.
