Obituary of James Alexander Morrison
Please share a memory of James to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
In Loving Memory of James (Jim, Boo) Alexander Morrison James (Jim, Boo) Alexander Morrison, born on January 31, 1944, to proud parents John Hugh and Adelia (Hartling) Morrison, passed away on September 28, 2023, at the Aberdeen Hospital, surrounded by his adoring family, where he also worked as a commissionaire for many years. Jim's life was one filled with love, hard work, and a deep appreciation for the simple joys of life. Jim is survived by his beloved wife, Catherine (Crook) Morrison, and their cherished children: daughters; Sandra (Kevin), Debbie, and Roxanne (Bill), sons; Robert James (Amy), John, and James Sherman (Heather). He leaves behind a legacy of love in his sisters Sally, Junie, and Joanne, and in the hearts of his grandchildren: Deanne (Steve), John Franklin, Shayla (Dominic), Mallory (Chris), Joshua, Jarrett, Christopher, Josie (Justin), Colin, Brittany, Megan, Jacob and Melissa (Ben). His 17 great-grandchildren will forever carry forward his memory and the love he bestowed upon them. Jim faced the challenges of life with courage and resilience, bearing the loss of his daughter, Mary Darlene MacDonald, with strength. He also shared a special bond with his loyal fur companion, Claire, who was a source of comfort and companionship throughout the years. Jim was also predeceased by brother John and sister Lorraine. Jim's journey in life was marked by dedication and hard work. At the tender age of 15, he began his career at the Trenton Steel Works plant. Even during periods of economic uncertainty when work was scarce, Jim took to the open roads, driving long hauls across Canada and the United States. However, his loyalty to the plant and his unwavering commitment led him to return whenever opportunities arose. Jim's dedication was recognized as he climbed the ranks, becoming a supervisor before ultimately assuming the role of head of security, where he served with honor for many years, then later advancing to Safety Coordinator for the plant, and after retirement keeping in touch with many coworkers meeting for monthly breakfasts. Beyond his professional pursuits, Jim found solace and happiness in the simple pleasures of life, from camping to travelling to multiple parts of the world, and his one of a kind green thumb. Jim took immense pride in his gardening skills, nurturing plants and flowers that bloomed as vibrant as his spirit. Jim's love for the great outdoors, particularly his passion for fishing with his life long friend John Paul Theriault, brought him closer to nature. These moments by the water were filled with tranquility and joy, reflecting his deep appreciation for the natural world. Jim's legacy is one of love, resilience, and an unyielding work ethic. His family and friends will forever hold the memories of his warmth, laughter, and the love he showered upon them. Though he may have departed this world, his spirit lives on in the gardens he tended, the fish he caught, and the hearts he touched. In honoring Jim's memory, may we find inspiration in his dedication to family, work, and the beauty of the outdoors. His legacy will forever be a guiding light for us all. There will be a private family burial in St. Anne’s Cemetery where Jim once served as the chairman for many years. There will be a celebration of life at a later date to be announced. In the famous words of Jim, “Everybody continue to carry on as if you’re normal.” Rest in peace, Jim, and may your soul find eternal serenity by the shores of the great beyond. www.angusfuneralhomes.com
