MCEACHERN, James Joseph ‘Jimmy’
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.
Donations can be made to a charity of one’s choice.
