Jimmy retired from Maritime Paper after 44 years of dedicated service. He loved rock and roll music, antique cars and times spent at the cottage.  Most of all, Jimmy loved being a husband and was an amazing father and “Poppy.”  He passed away doing what he loved, where he loved to be and with the people he loved.
