James Edward Clarke

1944 - 2021

New Waterford


It is with heartfelt sadness that we, the family of James Edward Clarke of New Waterford, NS regret to announce his passing on May 9, 2021. Born in Newfoundland on Feb. 9, 1944 he was the son of Lillian and Maxie Clarke. James moved to Cape Breton at an early age. He worked for Devco for over 30 years.  On his days off he enjoyed spending time with his family, going fishing and hunting. James is survived by his wife Sheila (Cummings), son Chesley, daughter Darlene and his sisters Brenda and Marjorie. James has two beautiful granddaughters, Jessica and Kayleigh who will miss him dearly.

James was predeceased by his parents, Lillian and Maxie, his sisters Ethel and Louise, his brothers George, Mackie, Dave, Ralph and Robby.

James was loved by all who knew him. His ‘quick smile’ will be sadly missed.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors and nurses of the QE11 in Halifax and the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital for their care and kindness shown to James during his illness.

It is with great sadness that my daughter Violet and myself heard of uncle Jim's passing.Violet and I had visited uncle Jim in the Halifax hospital a few years ago when he had been admitted.We were travelling at the time and he lit up with a big smile as I had not seen him for many years.A couple of years later we stopped in on him when we were returning to our home in Cornerbrook before catching the ferry.He remembered the time of when we had visited him in the Halifax hospital speaking fondly about us taking the time to stop in on him.I have many memories of when I was just a kid of our family trips to New Waterford.We would like to express our sorrow for his family and friends whom will miss him dearly.
