Feltmate, James Angus "Jimmy", age 67, Cove Road, Pomquet

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of James Angus "Jimmy" Feltmate.  With his loving family by his side, Jimmy passed away peacefully on July 10, 2021 after a long and courageous battle.

Born in Antigonish, he was the son of the late Maurice and Gwen (Pearl) Feltmate.

Jimmy was a devoted husband, father, and père to his best friend Lily. He believed strongly in family, loyalty and friendship. He was a dedicated employee at Highland Building Supplies for over 40 years. He found peace in nature and the outdoors and was an avid fisherman, hunter, photographer, and gardener. Jimmy loved his baked goods and entertaining friends in his shop. He enjoyed long drives and was a chauffeur to all! A model of patience, he was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. We hope you get your big buck in Heaven, Dad. The Cove Road will never be the same!

He is survived by his wife and soulmate of 43 years, Rose (Morell); daughters: Susan (Brent) Bethune, Lochaber; Cheryl, Calgary; granddaughter, Lily Madeleine; siblings:  John (Joan) MacEachern, Manitouwadge, Ont.;  Marie Henneberry, Dartmouth; Bernie MacEachern, Antigonish; Finley (Bernadette) MacEachern, Truro; Terry Delorey, Ontario and Jeanette Benoit (Clyde Bowman), Afton; Godson, Cory Doiron, Pomquet.  He will be greatly missed by all the Morell family, who have supported and loved him like a brother.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Rita Smith; father and mother in law, Leon and Madeleine Morell.

Cremation has taken place.  Visitation will be in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish on Wednesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm.  Funeral Mass will be held in Ste, Croix Church, Pomquet on Thursday at 11:00 am with Father Andrew Gillies presiding.  Burial to follow in the parish cemetery.

Donations in memory of Jimmy may be made to The Antigonish Palliative Care Society.  Online condolences:  www.clcurry.com.
