    • Obituary

      OULTON, Rodger "Darrell" - 77, passed away April 1, 2008, at home after a lengthy battle with cancer. Born in Amherst, Cumberland Co., December 1, 1930, he was the only son of the late Manford R. and L. Alice (Davidson) Oulton. He was a carpenter for 62 years, learning the trade from his father in his early teens. He took great pride in everything he did and for that reason was much in demand. He was a "jack of all trades" having the ability to repair most anything and make it work. Darrell's greatest love was deer hunting and he, along with Keith Austin, built a hunting camp in Gilbert Mountain, Canaan, Cumberland Co. in 1989. This became his favorite retreat every summer and fall. Surviving are his wife of nearly 55 years, Ruth M. (Chapman) Oulton, Fall River; one daughter, Carol Whalen, Nine Mile River; four sons, Noel, Fall River; Stephen, Enfield; Mark, Hatchets Lake and Cory, Canadian Coast Guard, Ont.; three grandsons; three granddaughters; one step great-granddaughter, and many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Darell was predeceased by a sister, Lidy Smith (Oxford Junction) and two infant sisters. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Cole Harbour Funeral Home & Crematorium. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, April 6 at 2 p.m. in St. John's United Church, Fall River, Rev. Valerie Kingsbury officiating. Reception to follow in the church hall. Family flowers only. Donations in Darrell's memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, St. John's United Church, Fall River, or a charity of your choice. Burial in Fall River Cemetery following the reception.
