STEVENS – Warren James “Jimmy”, age 77, of Port Medway, Queens County, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 in the Halifax Infirmary.
Born in Lunenburg, Jimmy was a son of the late Warren and Inez Stevens.
Jimmy was a “jack of all trades” and a master of many. If there was something he couldn’t fix he wouldn’t let on, he would just figure it out. He was predominately a fisherman and a carpenter for most of his life. Jimmy was well known for his wood carvings and lifelike model boats. He was a master story teller and could often be found telling stories at the Port Grocer with his coffee club. He was an avid outdoorsman, hunting, fishing and four wheeling. Jimmy enjoyed boating and spent many summers camping and waterskiing at Ponhook Lake. He also appeared in many Hollywood movies shot on the South Shore as an extra. Jimmy had many nicknames, just one of them being Uber Jimmy for the fact that he always made sure everyone got home safe and sound after a night of fun. Jimmy had a great sense of humor and a warm loving heart and will be greatly missed by his loving family and many friends.
Jimmy is survived by his daughter, Shelly (Wade) Moore; sons Jamie (Celeste) and John (Heather), all of Port Medway. His grandchildren Brendan, Isaac, Gabriel, Jessica and Noah Stevens; sisters, Marjorie Wamboldt of Port Medway, Shirley (Willard) Weagle of Middlewood, Barbara Burns of Mill Village; brothers, Larry (Grace), Billy (Judy), Jerry (Virginia) all of Port Medway; special friend, Barbara Ann Parnell and family.
He was predeceased by a sister, Geraldine and a brother, Danny.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, NS. A scattering of Jimmy’s remains at sea will take place on Sunday, October 18, 2020 with Reverend Judy Cross officiating , leaving the Port Medway wharf at 1:00 p.m. A reception will be held at the Port Grocer following their return (please bring your own lawn chair).
