Jim Nevers of Lakeville NB, passed away peacefully at the age of 89 in The Moncton Hospital, Sunday, January 16, 2022, with his daughter Arlene at his side.
Born in Lower Jemseg NB, he was the son of the late Paul B. and Ella E. (Wiggins) Nevers. He attended St. James Anglican Church, Lower Jemseg, NB.
Jim, at the age of 14, left home with his brother Fred on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. His adventure began at NBTEL, where he worked for a number of years while establishing and operating Nevers Trailer Sales. As a sideline to the trailer sales, Jim could usually be found in the community installing utility poles or selling firewood. He was a devoted and hard worker. He also bought, rented, and sold several properties and vehicles in Moncton and Rexton.
Jim's presence was felt in and around the Greater Moncton area. He was known for his selflessness, compassion, and storytelling. He would help anyone in need. No wonder he was recognized wherever he went. He was a friend to all.
Jim's last days were spent sitting in his wheelchair at home looking out the front window admiring the community in which he lived.
"As long as a person is remembered, they're not really gone. Their memories become a part of us". Jim's adventures were filled with many stories and multiple memories. Everyone that knew him would remember his famous lines ''That's good enough " And, the other one, ''Do you want to go for a drive?" It may have been a little errand or to drop off a pole however you might be gone all day because normally you would get stuck in the mud.
He will be sadly missed by his two daughters: Arlene and Dorene Nevers and two sons: Robert "Bob" and Leigh Nevers; grandchildren, Robert, Carla, Eddie, Tammy, Christina, Justin, Shanae, Rachel, and Paul. Jim had a lot of nieces and nephews from Ontario that thought the world of him. They made special trips to come and visit. Everyone appreciated his humor and laughter.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife H. Betty (Hannah) Nevers in 1998, a sister Patricia and two brothers Fred and Carl.
