James “Jim” William Al­li­son

It is with sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of James “Jim” William Al­li­son, of Cur­rys Cor­ner, Hants County, at the age of 80 on Nov. 16, 2018 at the Hants Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tal, Wind­sor, N.S., with his fam­ily by his side. Born in Wind­sor on April 30, 1938, he was the son of the late James and Dorothy (Boyd) Al­li­son. Jim at­tended Wind­sor Academy and left school be­fore grad­u­a­tion to work on the farm with his father. At an early age, Jim was a mem­ber of the Cur­rys Cor­ner Fire De­part­ment #2 when his father was fire chief. He also en­joyed play­ing hockey with his friends. He of­ten spoke of hang­ing out with his friends at Camp­bell’s Store, telling sto­ries and talk­ing about the news of the day. Later in his mar­ried life he was a bus driver for West Hants District School Board and the An­napo­lis Val­ley Re­gional School Board for 23 years. He was a ded­i­cated fan of the Mar­tock Tug of War Team when his son, Dar­ren, and later his grand­daugh­ter, Court­ney, were com­pet­ing in the Tug of War com­pe­ti­tions. Jim was a quiet man and kept to him­self, but could be quite witty when the op­por­tu­nity came along. He was so proud of his grand­chil­dren, of their ac­com­plish­ments whether it was hockey, 4-H, Tug of War or sell­ing trac­tors. He is sur­vived by his wife, Ju­dith Ann “Judy” (Har­vey) of 56 years. She was his con­fi­dant and care­giver un­til she no longer could care for him in their home, as well as daugh­ter, Sherri (Mike) vanKip­per­sluis and their

chil­dren Tyler (Laura) and Jor­don; daugh­ter, Tracey (Brian) McKee and their son, William and step­daugh­ters, Emma (Bran­don) and Sara (Noah) McKee; son, Dar­ren and Stephani Al­li­son the mother of their chil­dren, Court­ney (Mitchell), Con­nor and Car­lee; brother-in-law, John Ver­reault; nieces, neph­ews and cousins. He was pre­de­ceased by par­ents, James and Dorothy Al­li­son; sis­ters, June (Roland) Han­son and Eleanor Ver­reault; spe­cial aunt and un­cle Kate and Mike Reid, and Muriel Al­li­son whom he cher­ished so much. The fam­ily would like to ex­press their sin­cere thanks to the Hants Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tal staff for mak­ing his last days com­fort­able and es­pe­cially Am­ber Phillips, the Pal­lia­tive Care co­or­di­na­tor, for her com­pas­sion­ate care and com­fort.
