McALPINE, James Peacock - It is with broken hearts that our family announces the passing of James Peacock McAlpine on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 89 years of age.
We are deeply saddened but relieved that his is no longer in pain and is at peace Jim is predeceased by his loving wife, Irene, in 2004.
Best father ever to Patricia Hetherington (Bruce), Scott McAlpine (Mary) and Linda Fitzgerald (Kirk); cherished grandpa to Ashley (Iain), Kyle, Liam, Emily, Alex (Kim), Ian, Marisa and Carly; and, amazing great-grandpa to Nathan, Cameron and Sam. Born in Kirkmichael, Scotland in 1930, Jim was one of 9 children.
He is predeceased by late brothers David, John, Mungo and Ian, and sister, Margaret. Jim is survived by three sisters, Agnes, Janet and May and many nieces and nephews.
Jim was a true gentleman and, foremost, a family man. He was kind and generous of spirit and his witty sense of humour was only second to his incredible memory and story-telling.
We were so fortunate to have him in our lives and he will be profoundly missed.
The family will receive friends at the McEachnie Funeral Home, Ajax, on Monday March 11, 2019 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. The Memorial Service will follow in the Chapel at 3:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Covenant House or The War Amps would be appreciated by the family.
