Lloyd Roseville Crouse, PC ONS (November 19, 1918 – April 28, 2007) was a businessman, politician and the 28th Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, Canada.

Crouse was born in 1918 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. In his youth, Crouse established three fishing companies. During World War II, he served as a pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Crouse entered politics winning a seat in the Canadian House of Commons as the Progressive Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Queens—Lunenburg, and was re-elected on ten successive occasions. (Beginning with the 1968 election his riding changed to South Shore.)

In 1985, in honour of his long service, he was appointed to the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, entitling him to use the prenominal title "The Honourable".

He chose not to run in the 1988 election, and a few months later was appointed as Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia. He retired from the position in 1994. He received the Order of Nova Scotia in 2002. In 2007, he died at the age of 88 in his hometown of Lunenburg.[1]
