We, the family of James Edward Melanson, are saddened to announce his passing on September 22, 2020, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, N.S.

Born February 10, 1937, in Halifax N.S., he was the son of the late Bernard and Ruby (Keating) Melanson.

He arrived in Sydney in 1954 and soon married the love of his life, Margaret Anne MacPherson in 1961.

An avid sports enthusiast, he played hockey, curling, golf and downhill skiing. Jim enjoyed his many years with Sydney Auto Parts, retiring as Manager. He also enjoyed the many years he volunteered at the Atlantic Burn Camp. Many happy and memorable years with family and friends were spent at their cottage in Big Pond.

He was predeceased by his parents, Bernard and Ruby, his sister, Bernadine and his loving wife, Margaret.  

Survived by his brother, Kenneth (Carolyn) Moncton, N.B., brother-in-law, Colin (Sandra) MacPherson, Dartmouth, N.S., sister-in-law, Barbara Wynn, New Glasgow, N.S.,  nieces, Andrea, Dorothy, Kimberley Anne, Karen, Kelly and Dana, nephews, David, Graham, John, Kenneth and Jeffrey.

We would like to thank Linda, Debbie, John MacDougal and the many friends who helped him during his illness.

A graveside service will be held Saturday, October 17 at 12:00 noon at Big Pond Cemetery. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no reception following the service.
