Obituary

Donald (Donnie) Eugene Outhouse U.E., 87, of Yarmouth N.S., passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on March 18, 2019. The son of the late Ronald and Evelyn (Titus) Outhouse, Donnie was born and raised on Tiverton, Long Island, Digby County, Nova Scotia. Don’s working life was spent in various aspects of the fishing industry, education and construction. Retiring in 1988 after 27 years with the Dept. of Fisheries, Don began researching the history of his family and island home, publishing two books, walking tours and articles on the subject. He shared his vast knowledge of the Outhouse family and islands’ history to assist others with their research through his membership with The Descendants of Robert and Sarah Outhouse Society, The Argyle Historical Society and The Loyalist Association of Nova Scotia. A life long sports enthusiast, Donnie walked miles around the streets of Yarmouth, played hockey, badminton and baseball. He celebrated his 75th birthday watching his beloved New York Yankees, sitting just off the third base line, in Yankee Stadium. Though he didn’t leave Long Island until he was 16, in later life he travelled to Singapore, Malaysia, his ancestral village of Uithuizen in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Bermuda and more, with Lorna by his side. Donnie received his fifty-five year jewel from the IOOF, was a participant in the VON Walkathon for 44 years and a member of their board. Don served as a deacon, trustee and in various other capacities at Yarmouth North Baptist Church where he was a member. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Lorna (Malloy) Outhouse, his daughters and their husbands; Donna and Denis LeBlanc (Moncton), Colleen and Tan Suan Hoe (Singapore), Mary and Mitchell Saulnier (Melbourne); grandchildren Anna Lee LeBlanc, Carolynn and Kaitlin Tan, Hannah and Evan Saulnier, sister Marina Outhouse, brother-in-law Dale (Clare) Malloy and many nephews, nieces, grand nephews, grand nieces and cousins. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by brothers Melbourne, Sheldon and Clyde. Visitation will take place at Sweeny’s Funeral Home, Yarmouth, Friday, March 22, 7-9 pm with a service at Sweeny’s Funeral Home on Saturday, March 23, at 2 pm. A second service will be held at the Tiverton Baptist Church, Tiverton, Sunday, March 24 at 2 pm with commital in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery thereafter. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Don’s memory to the VON (Tri-County Branch), Yarmouth North Baptist Church, Tiverton Baptist Church or Tiverton Christian Church.

To Lorna And Family,
I have fond memories of visiting your home in Shelburne when my father Avellin worked with Don. We were all much younger then; I also can picture Don coming to our house in Lower West Pubnico. Acadians were generally all much shorter than Don, and he had to duck to go through the doorway to the house. I offer you our sincerest condolences. Ina Amirault and Jack McEachern.
