Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM / TV HIGHLIGHTS / ADVICE -

Van­cou­ver/New Water­ford

It is with deep sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our brother, Jimmy McEach­ern, on June 21, 2015, at Adanac Park Lodge in Van­cou­ver.

Born in New Water­ford, he was the son of the late Mur­doch and Dorothy (McNeil) McEach­ern.

Shortly af­ter Jimmy had fin­ished his ba­sic train­ing in the air force, he was in­volved in a se­vere car ac­ci­dent which ended his ca­reer. Af­ter be­ing hon­ourably dis­charged, he went to Van­cou­ver where he would spend the re­main­der of his years. He got great plea­sure from help­ing peo­ple as he vol­un­teered a lot of his time cook­ing for home­less shel­ters. Jimmy was a man of strong faith and at­tended mass regularly.

Jimmy is sur­vived by his seven sis­ters, Gail (Bobby) Hines, Terry Cox, Patsy Roach, Mar­ion (Peter) Cloake, Josi Mor­ri­son (Eric), Mau­reen Noble (Chip) and Kim MacIn­tyre (Erin); aunts, Pat Camp­bell and Teace Mur­phy, as well as many nieces and neph­ews.

Be­sides his par­ents, Jimmy was pre­de­ceased by a sis­ter, Mur­dena, and brother-in-law, Don Cox. He was also pre­de­ceased by nu­mer­ous aunts and un­cles.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place in Van­cou­ver. A chapel ser­vice will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Fri­day, July 17, 2015, at the McLel­lan Broth­ers Chapel with Fr. Ray Hunt­ley of­fi­ci­at­ing. Burial will be held in St. Agnes Ceme­tery.

Fu­neral ar­range­ments are un­der the di­rec­tion of McLel­lan Broth­ers Fu­neral Home, 3183 Plum­mer Ave., New Water­ford, 902-862-7500.
