James Robinson MacFarlane
We are saddened to announce the passing of James Robinson MacFarlane of Riverview on October 22, 2021 at the Salvation Army Lakeview Manor. He was born in Sydney Mines, NS in 1951 to the late William and Ellen (Robinson) MacFarlane.
James did a little bit of everything over his lifetime, from cooking on an Army base in Germany, to working in manufacturing at Advanced Glazings in Sydney, to helping with patient care in many different departments at The Moncton Hospital, which he retired from after 12 wonderful years. Outside of work, he had many hobbies: refurnishing furniture, gardening, travelling, finding and trying new restaurants, and painting houses – often for his friends, family, or coworkers. James was born again on December 16, 1992 and was in fellowship at the Moncton Gospel Hall.
Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his brother William, father-in-law Bill, and mother-in-law Joan. He will be sadly mourned by his loving wife Cynthia (London-Doyle), sister Christine, brothers Robert (Mary Frances) and David (Allana), numerous nieces and nephews from both the MacFarlane and London families, and his beloved pups Murphy and Jakks.
A committal has taken place at Alderwood Cemetery and his arrangements have been entrusted to Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center at 330 Whitepine Road in Riverview (869-2007). In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society of New Brunswick would be appreciated by the family.
