James Albert Jeffrey 19352018

It is with
heavy hearts we announce the passing of our father at the Dr. Everett
Chalmers hospital on Dec. 31, 2018. James passed away peacefully,
surrounded by loved ones after a brief illness. Born in Saint John NB
on Dec. 15, 1935 he was the son of the late Gladys (Angel) and Frank
Jeffrey.
He was
predeceased by his loving wife of 57 years Barbara (Godfrey) and his
son Mark James (Willa Stevenson). James is also survived by his
daughter Jill (Mike Arthur) Bedford NS, son Andrew (Monique)
Fredericton NB, daughter Jane (Brian McKeown) Fredericton NB.
“Bamp” was much loved by all his grandchildren, Andrew and
Caroline (Jeffrey) Healy, Shane Arthur, Mark and Samuel Jeffrey, Megan
and Sarah McKeown. He is also survived by sister in law Lynn (Bruce
Redding) St. Catherine’s ON. Also, nieces Debbie, Janet and
Lori (Redding).
“Jimmy” grew up in Saint John NB, where he excelled in
football and hockey. He began his career with Pittfield McKay, where
he met his lifetime love Barbara. He started his journey as a
traveling salesman with International Harvester living in New Glasgow
and Truro NS. Jim could talk for many hours on the “life
lessons” learned while on the road. He settled in Fredericton
where he and Barb raised their
family.
For most of
his life Jim was employed in the automotive industry. He worked many
years with J.Clarke & Sons with car and truck sales, Mack
Maritime (Dartmouth) and finally with Buzzell’s Automotive
until retirement. In the 80’s many people knew Jim though
his ownership of the Waterloo Row Esso
station.
Jim was
heavily involved in the Fredericton community all his life. He was
member of the Kiwanis Club, Fredericton Golf and Curling Club, Ducks
Unlimited, and the Fredericton Sports Investment Inc. Jim headed up
the transportation committee for the 1982 Jr. World Curling
Championships, he spearheaded the 1990 24 Hour Labatt Relay, and was a
huge supporter of the Varsity Reds hockey program, often seen trying
to coach behind the bench. While living in Bedford NS from 1974-1978,
he served as President of Bedford Minor Hockey Association and was
involved with the Bedford Lions Club. Most recently Jim served on the
Seniors Advocacy Committee with the Fredericton City Police. His
favourite day was his Wednesday morning coffee with the 100 +
“Golden Club”.
Most of all
Jim was a generous family man, who always put his wife and children
first. There are many people who have benefited from Jim’s
kind ways. Jim built the family cottage at White’s Cove,
Grand Lake over 53 years ago and he and Barbara spent many months
there each year. As well, they loved to travel, and he and Barb had
many road trips with good friends, along the Maine coast, New York
City, and Florida. He now can enjoy the sunsets with his
Barbie.
A funeral
service will be held on Thursday Jan. 3rd at
2:00 pm at Saint Paul’s United Church, 224 York St.
Fredericton. No visitation. In lieu of flowers donations can be made
to the “Mark Jeffrey Hockey Scholarship” at UNB, or York
Care Foundation. The family will like to express their heartful thanks
Dr. Jill Hudson, Dr. John Murdoch and the ICU team at the DECH,
especially Lana.
