2002 Adolphe J. DOUCET

died on Sunday, October 20, 2002 Source: The Halifax Herald Submitter: CLR Obituary contained surnames CAZA, CONRAD, DOUCET, DOUCETTE, KAPETSKI

DOUCETTE, Adolphe J. - 98, resident of Villa St. Joseph Du Lac, Dayton, passed away October 20, 2002, in Yarmouth Regional Hospital. Born in Quinan, Yarmouth Co. March 10, 1904, he was a son of the late Hilaire and Françoise (DOUCETTE) DOUCETTE. He lived in Quinan most of his life except for a few years in the 1920s when he worked in Massachusetts. He earned his living as a carpenter and mason and his beautiful masonry work can be found on many foundations, chimneys, stonewalls and tombstones in the village and throughout the province. He proudly carved his parents' tombstone from a slate rock he found near his home. For 22 years from 1937 to 1959, he tended the Quinan fire tower. During the war he pursued his trade, in off season, in Debert, Greenwood, Eastern Passage, and South Maitland. Adolphe was always ready to volunteer time to his church and community where he was regarded to be a just and honest man. In 1975, he, his wife and infirmed son moved to the Villa St. Joseph Du Lac, where he remained active becoming well-known for his wood carvings and basketry. Even though he still had a valid driver's license at the age of 94, he decided to sell his car four years ago. Adolphe enthusiastically read the Chronicle-Herald daily, and loved to discuss any topic therein, he remained undecided on "cloning". And so you could always count on having an interesting conversation with him whether it be concerning today's world issues or listening to fantastic stories of days of yore. He also had a good listening ear and was always willing to offer words of wisdom to anyone who came to him for advice. He will be dearly missed for his remarkable memory of events and people of the county. The chroniclers of the past have lost an outstanding resource. He is survived by his children, sons, Paul, Dartmouth; Henry (Jackie) Yarmouth; Basil (Judy) Halifax; Jules, Villa St. Joseph Du Lac; Camille (Rita), North Belleville; daughters, Sister Louise CSM, New Waterford; Dorothy (Garnet CONRAD), Head of Chezzetcook; Zoé (Harold KAPETSKI), Inglis, Man.; Adeline (Joe DOUCET), Quinan; Cora (Henry CAZA), Edmonton, Alta.; Lucy, East River; 26 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; five great-great- grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife, Regina DOUCETTE; infant son, Albert; brother, Laurent; half-brother, Walter. Funeral service was held Oct. 23 in St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church, Quinan. Burial followed in the parish cemetery. Donations may be made to St. Agnes Church or a charity of your choice. On-line condolences at: sweenys@ns.aliantzinc.ca
