Veinot, Esmond Atwood “Ted”, 89 of Liverpool, passed away peacefully on January 16th, 2020.
Born in Milton, he was the son of the late Freeman and Hazel (Croft) Veinot.
Ted lived a full life in his 89 years. Ted left school at the age of 14 to start a part time job at the Liverpool Advance delivering papers. This, his very first paying job, started his life long career in the news print industry. Ted worked as a type setter six years at the Yarmouth Herald in Yarmouth, and five years at the Telegraph Journal in Saint John before returning home to Liverpool to work at The Advance until Ted and his brother Richard started their own printing business, Veinot’s Print, in Sandy Cove and successfully ran that business until their retirement. Ted and Mildred also had their own convenience store, “Ted’s Mart” which they ran for several years next to their home in Liverpool.
Ted was an honorary member of the Liverpool Fire Department for over 16 years. Ted played numerous sports, starting at a young age and right through to his retirement years. Finding himself too small to be effective at hockey, Ted’s interests soon turned to baseball, a game which he played for many decades. Ted was also fond of curling and when he was no longer able to play himself, he tuned in to every game he could and enjoyed watching National tournaments live in Halifax and Saint John on several occasions.
Ted also spent a great deal of his time in the woods hunting and fishing. The cottage on Hibernia Rd holds many treasured memories. So many stories can be told of his fishing adventures and his “catch (or should we say – catches!) of the day”, or how many rabbits, bears, and deer have been harvested throughout the years. When times slowed down for Ted, he turned to woodworking projects, and his puzzles for a source of enjoyment. Hundreds of puzzles were completed by Ted in his later years.
Ted’s greatest source of joy was his family. His devoted wife Mildred and two daughters Merla and Susan, his grand-son Blair, great grand-children Lindsay and Jeremy and especially his great grandson Ethan, with whom he has always shared a special bond. His family always included furry friends as well, Ted never met a dog he didn’t like, or who didn’t like him.
Ted is survived by his daughters Merla Hanley, Port Mouton, NS; Susan Veinot (Kimberly Doggett), Saint John, NB; grandson Blair (Wendy) Whynot, Caledonia, NS; great grandchildren Ethan Whynot, Caledonia, NS; Jeremy Thorbourne, Liverpool, NS; and Lindsay (Walter Lowe) Liverpool, NS.
Ted was predeceased by his wife of 59 years, Mildred (Moulton) Veinot, brother Richard Veinot, and sister Annabelle Rafuse.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, NS. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. No flowers by request, donations in Ted’s memory may be made to the IWK Children’s Hospital, Halifax or charity of choice. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

Condolence from Susan M MacLeod on January 17th, 2020 6:07 pm

To Ted’s Family
I am so sorry to hear about Ted’s passing. I worked alongside Ted and Richard at the Print Shop. Upon Ted’s retirement, It was difficult in the beginning to think I could replace such a good worker. That never happened in my opinion. Ted was very thrifty also and watched his wallet.. I remember there was a problem with the printing press, after Ted retired of course, Richard tried to troubleshoot the problem, when he discovered that at one time Ted had to fix the small belt on the press and he used a large elastic (rubber band) to do the job. It held for many years. Saved buying a belt for it. We both got a chuckle at that. My latest memory of Ted was at a Senior Event at the Westfield Community Hall. He was on the dance floor quite often, had a great time with the group. My sincere condolences to Ted’s Family. Susan MacLeod

I know this is a very difficult time for everyone, but one thing for sure, you have a lot of great memories to hold on to.

Condolence from Kathy and Bernie Rumbolt on January 17th, 2020 6:27 pm

Our hearts are heavy tonight to learn of Ted’s passing. He was a good friend and even better neighbour at the camp in Hibernia. We have many happy memories of him and Mildred enjoying the cottage with their precious dog…feeding the hummingbirds or planting a garden.We enjoyed a few of his cucumbers lol. He always kept a watchful eye out for our place and would call us to remind us if we left the lights on etc. It brings a smile to our faces to see Mildred at the door, with her hair in rollers ,in her housecoat ,with a pan of warm, homemade buns fresh out of the oven in her hands to welcome him “Home”. RIP dear Ted.

Condolence from Krista Doucet on January 18th, 2020 10:41 am

Sue, Kim, Ethan and Family.
What a beautiful obituary and video! We are thankful to have had Ted (and his bottle openers) for a neighbour. When the weather was nice, he was always out in the yard, and welcoming for a chat, or just a friendly smile if we were rushing by.
He sure did live a full life and touched a lot of hearts. I know that doesn’t make the loss a lot easier, but he will always be with you in spirit and memory, and you will gather strength from your loved ones who are still physically here with you.
With warmest thoughts and prayers,
Raymond & Krista Doucet

Condolence from Francis & Peggy Payzant on January 19th, 2020 1:23 pm

Dear Susan & Merla,

Francis & I Are Very Sorry To Hear About Ted’s Passing. Ted Was A Great Man So Full Of Knowledge And Fun. Ted & Mildred Were Always Together Greeting Everyone With A Smile. I Always Liked Ted & Mildred And Will Never Forget When Mildred Was In The Auxillary And We Exchanged Gifts At Christmas Time She Was Doing Ceramics At The Time And Knew That I Liked Her Snowmen That She Made. She Had My Name And I Did Not Know That At The Time. When I Opened Up My Gift I Was Pleasantly Surprised To Get These Snowmen From Mildred. And To This Day I Still Have Them.They Are My Treasured Prize. Francis & Ted Were Friends For A long Time Being In The Fire Department Together For So Many Years. We Will Always Remember The Good Times We Had At The Dances With So Many Of Our Hoarary Fire department Fiends. Ted Is Now With The Love Of His Life (Mildred). I’m Pretty Sure They Are Holding Hands And Smiling At One Another Today. Cherish All Your Memories Of Ted And Keep Them BOTH Close To Your Heart. These memories Will Get You Through Some Difficult Days Ahead. May Ted Now REST IN ETERNAL PEACE And May God Be With You All At This Most Difficult Time In Your Lives.

Condolence from Dwight and Louise Fancy on January 19th, 2020 3:12 pm

We will miss Ted so much. His humor at the Nursing home will be missed, He loved my husbands music, He would always shake Dwight and Clarences hand and would tell them each time if he had a car he would drive a 100 miles to hear him play, He always wanted to be up dancing and we had many chuckles when dancing, We had one dance the day before he passed away. Condolences to all his family.

To the family of Teddy Veinot.

So sorry to hear of Teddy’s passing. Played softball with Teddy and Richard in Yarmouth during the years of 1964-1966. Teddy and I were the pitchers and I believe Richard played 3rd base. They were great team mates and we played on a great team- Notre Dame. Lots of fond memories. Please accept our sincere condolences.

Anzil and Sue Blackadar

Condolence from Kristy on January 20th, 2020 7:43 pm

Susan, Kim, Ethan and the rest of the family,

My deepest condolences to you all on the loss of a truly great man. Although I only met Ted a few times, I feel as if I’ve known him for years.

Susan, you shared with us many stories about your Dad and all the adventures he was part of. We laughed, we cried and we felt the love that he had for you and you for him. I’ll never forget yours and Kim’s wedding day and how proud your Dad was to walk you down that aisle! Your smiles lit up that sweet little church and I (along with many others) couldn’t hold back the tears. We were beyond proud that you finally were able to enjoy a moment that you thought would never happen. I’m so lucky to have been part of that and I certainly will never forget it. I hope during this time of sorrow, you too will look back and remember that beautiful day.

In the coming days, may you find the strength to keep moving forward and feel the love in your hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Love to you all.

Just reading about Ted’s passing today. Many fond memories, especially in our curling days when Ted, David Randall and myself would travel to wherever the provincial championship was being held to support the Liverpool team if none of us were participating. A quiet but mischievous friend with a keen sense of humour. Condolences to all family and friends.
