It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our loving son, husband, father, grampy and brother, James Stephen Hennessy, 56, on August 11, 2017, surrounded by his loving family, in Edmonton, AB, after a 13 month battle with cancer.
James was born in New Waterford and was the son of Phill and the late Jerry Hennessy.
James had a 35 year career as a Union Ironworker, in Locals 752 Halifax and 720 Edmonton. He was a hardworking family man. He was a handyman to say the least and loved working in his yard in Mira. He always had a grin on and would love to torment and make everyone laugh. He always loved his Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays.
He is survived by his wife, Cathy (MacNeil), who he spent 36+ years with having wonderful adventures together since their teens.
Survived by his son, Jamie, who he was so proud of, his wife, Alex and his two beautiful grand babies, Kaenen and Nolah, who he idolized; his daughter, Aimee, who will always be Daddy’s girl, all of Alberta; his brothers, Ronnie (Mary), Scotchtown, Gerald, Mira, Vernon, New Waterford and John (Monie), New Victoria; his sisters, Ann, New Waterford, Lois (Wayne), Glace Bay and Karen (Cory), New Glasgow; his mother-in-law, Marie Aitken, Mira; brothers-in-law, Ray (Barb), Scotchtown and Gordie (Kathleen), Sydney; sister-in-law, Elaine (Charlie), Mira; his brother-in-law, Mike (Karen) MacLeod; sister-in-law, Laura, and numerous nieces and nephews. He will be dearly missed by his two best friends, The Big Fellas, Frank Doran and Barry McCulloch.
He was predeceased by his father, Jerry; his sister, Donna MacLeod; his brother, Kevin, and his brother-in-law, Freddy Duprey.
There will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. Funeral service for James will be held on August 21, 2017 at 2 p.m. at Sacred Heart Church, 102 Trout Brook Rd., Marion Bridge with Fr Everett McDow officiating.
The family would like to welcome friends and family after the Mass for a celebration luncheon.
The family asks for no flowers, and as token to James, pay it forward to someone or do something generous and kind in his memory.
