James Earl Cleghorn

James Earl Cleghorn

The family of James Earl Cleghorn are sad to announce his passing on January 31, 2021 at Wauklehegan Manor in McAdam NB. He was born in Harvey Station NB on June 13, 1940 to parents, the late Vincent and Margaret (Holt) Cleghorn. James was married to the late Betty Jo (Smith) Cleghorn.

James is survived by his daughters, Debbie Cleghorn (Henry) of Ottawa On, Cindy Cleghorn (Randy) of Hoyt NB, Karen Davidson (Kirk) of Hoyt NB; stepsons, Ricky Coombs (Gail) of Bangor and Brian Wardwell (Karen) of Ellsworth; grandchildren, Corey Walsh (Tara), Maggie Walsh (Rob), Eric Turner (Tammy), Kenneth Cleghorn, Adam Cleghorn; five great grandchildren, as well as several cousins. Also left to mourn his passing is his special friend Marlene Bell. In addition to his parents and wife, he was predeceased by his daughter Linda Armstrong.

James enjoyed his working years travelling from province to province as a long-haul tractor trailer driver with Sunbury Transport and closer to home for the last few working years as a Home fuel delivery driver with Esso.   The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Wauklehegan Manor for the wonderful care and compassion that you have shown to our Dad while he was a resident there.
