It is with sadness the family of James Bliss Marr, age 74, partner of Deb Dennis, of Moncton, NB, announce his passing, on September 8, 2017. He was born on August 20, 1943 in Saint John, NB, and grew up in Norton, the son of the late Leonard and Jean (Orchard) Marr.
Jim is survived by his partner Deb; sister Judy (Frank) Maxwell of Port Williams, NS; niece Heather (Derrick) Fedele and Ryan & Michael, of Surrey, BC; nephew David (Patricia) Maxwell and Lindsay & Laura of Stouffville, ON; nephew Jim (Gillian) Maxwell and Jessica and Leah of Auckland, NZ; as well as several cousins.
Jim graduated from Moncton High School and N.B.I.T. in motor mechanics – where he went to teach for his entire working career. Restoring antique cars was his life-long hobby.
He loved nature and his Belleisle Bay & Grey Road (Norton) cottages, where he and Deb spent many happy times in the company of their dog.
Family and friends were very important to Jim, and he will be sorely missed by them all.
