It is with sadness we announce the peaceful passing of James "Jim" Colfer, age 91, of Baie Verte, NB.  Jim passed away on Sunday, January 1, 2023 at the Briarlea Serenity Senior Living Home in Moncton.

Born in Ireland, he was a son of the late Michael and Margaret Colfer.

Jim and his family moved to Baie Verte from England in 1981.  He enjoyed the outdoors, whether it be hunting, fishing, gardening, or cutting wood.  He loved to tease and enjoyed joking with family and friends.

He will be dearly missed by his wife Maureen (Simpson) Colfer, Moncton; daughter Lynn (Terry) Wall, Moncton and son Kevin (Lisa) Colfer, all of Moncton; grandchildren Riley, Meghan, James, Lily, Christina and Kayla; brother Billy of Ireland.

James (Jim)'s family would like to thank the Briarlea staff for their exceptional care and compassion over the last nine months. 

Arrangements have been entrusted to Jones Funeral Homes, Port Elgin and Sackville, NB, (506-364-1300).  Visiting hours will be held at the Jones Funeral Home Port Elgin Chapel on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 from 1 until 2 pm, followed immediately at 2 pm by his funeral service, William Drysdale, DLM, officiating.  Burial will take place in the Baie Verte Cemetery in the spring.

Those wishing to make a donation in Jim's memory may do so to a charity of your choice.
