James ‘Jim’ Gogan 2021

James ‘Jim’ Gogan
James Wilson Gogan. It is with sadness that the family of
James “Jim” Gogan announce his recent passing after a short
illness.
Jim was born in Springhill, Nova Scotia to Jean and James
Gogan. He was predeceased by his sister Marie and brother
Allister.
Jim spent his career with the Empire Company Limited and the
Sobey Group of Companies, ultimately retiring as the President and
Chief Executive Officer of Empire Company in 1999. He
continued to serve on the board of Empire and a number of other public
corporations for several years, including Wajax, Hannaford Brothers,
Seamark, Clearwater. He was also a founding director of Nova Scotia
Business Inc. He was fortunate to spend a career doing what
he loved. His passion for the stock market was well known to
all who knew him.
After watching his four children all graduate from St Francis
Xavier University, Jim developed a special fondness for “X”
and all that it offered. He served multiple terms on the
Board of Governors and continued on the University’s Finance
Committee for over 15 years. He enjoyed this time immensely
and the friendships that developed at X. He received an
Honorary Degree from the University in 1998.
Jim contributed generously of his time to a number of
organizations, including the Gyro Club and United Way of Pictou
County. He was particularly proud of the development of the
Aberdeen Hospital Foundation and its endowment fund, an organization
which he contributed to for over 35 years.
He was a devout Catholic and a Knight of the Order of
Malta.
Jim is survived his wife Maureen; their four children, Jim
(Robin); Monique; John (Lynn) and Suzanne (Richard), and seven
grandchildren: James, Jack, Joshua, Hannah, Olivia, Johnathan and
Holly.
A private Funeral Mass will be held at St. John the Baptist
Church in New Glasgow on June 9, with His Excellency, The Most
Reverend Archbishop Brian Dunn officiating.
Donations in memory of Jim can be made to the Aberdeen Health
Foundation or a charity of your choice. Arrangements are under the
direction of R.H. Porter Funeral Home, New
Glasgow.
