It is with great sadness that the family of James Edward Prescott, of Kiersteadville, NB, announces his passing after a courageous battle with cancer. Jim was born at the Saint John General Hospital and grew up in Sussex, NB. He was the son of the late Hon. Justice John McLeod Prescott and Eva (nee Dalton) Prescott.
Jim is survived by his wife Shirley (nee Spragg); his sons: Darren (Traci) and Jonathan (Jennifer), both from Saint John, NB; five grandchildren: Jesse, Justin, Joshua, Benjamin (Jessica), and Stephanie; and two sisters-in-law: Ruth Patterson (late Walter) and Joyce McLeod (David); along with many nieces and nephews.
Jim started his career with NBTel and retired from Office Outfitters. He was a jack of all trades and master of some. You could always find Jim working on various projects. He was always just a call away for Darren and Jon with their never-ending questions on how to fix something.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Sherwood’s Funeral Home and Life Tribute Centre (506-839-2156), 18 Scovil Road, Norton, NB where visitation will be held on Friday September 18th from 2:00 to 4:00pm and 6:00 to 8:00pm. A private service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of James may be made to Kiersteadville Cemetery or to the charity of the donor’s choice. Personal condolences to the family and donations may be made through: www.sherwoodsfuneralhome.com
