Following a long period of failing health, James “Jim” Alexander Taylor, passed away peacefully on Thursday February 7, 2019 at Bobby’s Hospice. Jim was born in Saint John on the 29th of July, 1948 to the late Mark and Vera “Peggy” (Brakspear) Taylor.
Jim was an avid reader who was known for his penmanship as well as his quick wit. In his earlier years he was a Beaver Leader and taught Sunday school.
He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Molly (Delaney) Taylor; his son Kevin Taylor; eldest brother Tony (Anne) Brakspear; brother Richard (Ginette) Taylor; sister Lynn Taylor as well as several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers Mark and Michael and his sister Terri Clark.
The family would like to take this opportunity to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff who have treated Jim over the years, especially Dr. Webb, Dr. Keripe and Dr. Wagg.
