JACKSON, Charles James "Chic"


On July 19, 2021, we had to say goodbye to a very kind and gentle man, Charles James “Chic” Jackson, in HighCrest Sherbrooke Nursing Home. Born in Seattle and raised in Saskatchew­an, he was a son of the late James and Sarah Jackson. Charlie left home at a very young age and rode the rails of Western Canada, working at each stop along the way. He settled in Calgary when he met his future wife of 69 years, Marie “Gran”. After that, he worked at British American (later Gulf Oil) for over 25 years. In 1970, they moved to Nova Scotia with their two children where they establishe­d a beautiful home. He enjoyed gardening, raising chickens, outdoor strolls and Gran’s lemon pie. He was a very devoted Jehovah’s Witness, an elder in his congregati­on. He was a loving husband and an amazing father and gramps to his kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids. He is survived by his son, Bruce (Winnie), Bayfield; daughter, Debbie Fougere, Tracadie; grandchild­ren, Brad, Trudy, Chrissy, Stacey, Brent, Catherine, Beth, and Briana; 12 great-grandchild­ren; his sister, Nell Drew; and several nieces and nephews. Predecease­d by his wife, Marie; sons-in-law, Arthur Fougere and Gerald Myette; sisters, Marie, Rhoda, Virginia, and Florence; and brothers, David and Cedric. Cremation has taken place. A visitation for both Charlie and his wife Marie, who passed away in February, will be held on Friday, July 23rd from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College St., Antigonish. Private family funerals will be held for both. In Memoriam, donations to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind or Pancreatic Cancer Canada appreciate­d. Online condolence­s:
