Jimmy worked at William A. Flemmings – later known as Clarence Farm Supplies, for 35 years. He enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting and spending time with his family and many close friends. Always the life of the party – Jimmy loved to dance! He was a Jack of all trades, master of none. His door was always open and he was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need.
“As I grow older, I thought the best part was over and then I was handed my grandchildren …”
Jimmy’s family would like to extend their appreciation for all of the support from family and friends as well as the staff of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital and the Colchester East Hants Health Centre.
