It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James "Jimmy" Darrell Matthews. Jimmy passed away at the age of 45, on the evening of Thursday, January 25, 2024.
Born in Springhill, he was the beloved son of the late Darrell and Diana Matthews.
Jimmy will forever be remembered for his infectious laughter and his uncanny ability to bring joy to those around him. Jimmy had a passion for small engine repair demonstrating both great skill and dedication to the craft. His adventurous spirit thrived in the great outdoors, where he enjoyed biking, hunting, and camping. Jimmy loved having a good time, listening to music, and making others laugh while creating a lifetime of memories with family and friends. His magnetic personality left an unforgettable mark on every person fortunate enough to have known him.
Though he has left an irreplaceable gap, the continuous love and laughter he shared will forever resonate with his partner Tracy MacDonald; sister, Tara Matthews; niece, Christiane Trimm, and many other family members and close friends. Amongst his special kins are cousins Kenneth "Sonny" Matthews and Mitchell St Peter as well as many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.
In addition to his loving parents, Jimmy was predeceased by his grandparents, Harold and Catherine Boyce and Chester and Evelyn Matthews, amongst many other special family members and friends.
Arrangements have been entrusted to A H Brown Funeral Home, 5 McFarlane St., Springhill, NS (902-597-2361). A graveside service will take place in the Spring in the Hillside Cemetery.
Those wishing to make a donation in Jimmy's memory are asked to donate to "My First Bicycle," a Canadian charity that provides bicycles to youth in economically challenged households across the country. This gesture reflects Jimmy's love for biking and his commitment to spreading joy to others. May Jimmy's spirit continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those he touched, and may his memory be a source of comfort and inspiration during this difficult time.
