MA­CLEAN, James Alexan­der

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -


It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the death of James Alexan­der Ma­cLean on July 28, 2015, in the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal, Syd­ney.

Born in Christ­mas Is­land, he was a son of the late Hec­tor and Betty (Stark) Ma­cLean and is the last sur­viv­ing mem­ber of his im­me­di­ate fam­ily.

He was known for his abil­ity to use his hands; whether it is wood­carv­ing or restor­ing most any­thing. He made a ca­reer as me­chanic, both me­chan­i­cal and auto body. He en­joyed play­ing guitar and singing. His witty sense of hu­mour al­ways lit up a room. He will be missed by his many friends at the club.

James is sur­vived by sons, Wayne (Dar­lene), Kevin; daugh­ters, Ann (Gary), Mary, Marie (Craig), Ber­nadette (Leigh) Derry, Cather­ine (Char­lie); also sur­viv­ing are 10 grand­chil­dren and seven great-grand­chil­dren.

Be­sides his par­ents, he was pre­de­ceased by a child, Sheila in in­fancy; first wife, Sarah; sec­ond wife, Florence; broth­ers, Wal­lace and Archie.

Vis­i­ta­tion will take place 12 p.m.-2 p.m. Thurs­day in the SW Chant & Son Fu­neral Home where a me­mo­rial ser­vice will fol­low at 2 p.m. in the fu­neral home chapel. A re­cep­tion will be held fol­low­ing the ser­vice at the French Club (cor­ner of Ferry and Dol­bin streets, Syd­ney).

Me­mo­rial do­na­tions to the pal­lia­tive-care unit of the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal would be ap­pre­ci­ated by the fam­ily.
